Nigerians have responded to the alleged price of the Aso-ebi material sold for the traditional wedding of Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic.
It is worth recalling that the 46-year-old actress tied the knot traditionally with her boyfriend, Fidelis Anosike, on Tuesday, April 19th, in her hometown in the eastern part of Nigeria.
Nollywood actors and actresses, both old and new, including Ini Edo, Joke Silva, Uche Jombo, Idia Aisen and others, showed up and introduced themselves at the ceremony, and photos of their gorgeous outfits have been shared on the internet.
In a new update, the cost of the beautiful green George material has now been shared on social media by Instagram gossip blogger, Cutie Juls.
According to the blogger who shared this information on Wednesday, April 21st, the outfit cost a whopping sum of N150,000 per person.
The post reads:
“Asoebi was N150k. Stephanie bought but I was looking forward to her presence.. or did I miss? Genevieve and Omotola too. But above all, Nollywood showed maximum love to Riri. Was so much looking forward to see especially Genevieve in that Asoebi.”
This has drawn mixed reactions online as social media users debate over the price and arguing that it’s too expensive for the price.
Some also shared their thoughts on how much the material would cost if sourced directly from the market. While others felt that the guests likely received souvenirs worth the extra cost paid on the outfit.

However, an Instagram user disputed the alleged price, claiming that it actually cost N80,000 for the women’s outfit, while the men paid N70,000.
At the time of filing this report, both prices were unconfirmed.
