Former Cross River Gov. Donald Duke’s daughter, Xerona, is marrying Derin Phillips aka DJ Caise.
DJ Caise is the grandson of late Dehinde Fernandez. He is also the first son of former Lagos State Commissioner, Teju Phillips.
The couple have been engaged since August 2017.
The introduction ceremony has been done already and the photos are here. The ceremony between the Efik and Yoruba families held in Lagos on Sunday.
Here’s how Xerona reported the event on Instagram:
“One of the aspects of the wedding we’ve looked forward to most is being able to embrace the cultures of our parents (my father is #Efik and #Quas and my mother is #Kalabari and @drcaise is #Yoruba), so we made the most of our #Introduction and I felt like a princess in my onyo onyo and double wrapper, while Derin looked rather dashing in his agbada. It was also wonderful to honor my late grandmother, Henrietta Ajumogobia Bobmanuel, by wearing her white coral necklaces and crown. The day went seamlessly and we give God all the glory because when He’s in charge you know it and He was without a doubt with us. God bless all of our family members and friends who were with us and showed up in brilliant fuchsia and beautiful yellow for the first step in combining our families. Now to the trad!”
