Linda Ejiofor, Ibrahim Suleiman are solemn as they exchange vows in the presence of loved ones.


In case you haven’t heard: Ihuoma Linda Ejiofor and Inrahim Suleiman have tied the knot!

The actress first teases us with information of the upcoming wedding only one week ago as she post photos of herself and a veiled man, adding the caption “Approved” and a bunch of heart emojis.

But it did not take long for the groom to be recognized though.

Shortly after Linda’s photos were up on her Instagram, fellow Tinsel actor, Ibrahim Suleiman also took to his Instagram page where he posted some loved-up photos and cute words to boot.

Unlike, his bride-to-be [at the time], there is no veiling.

The couple have now tied the knot in one beautiful garden ceremony that we're absolutely in awe of. What's more beautiful is that their wedding makes them the the fourth Tinsel couple to do so.

Below, we list the other three couples to have gone on from the screen to the aisle since the TV series first aired in 2008.

Chris Attoh has since remarried. It has taken him 10 months after the divorce to do so.
