Who Is Ayiri Emami - The Man Who Had The Most Expensive Wedding In History by aderahaman: 1:12am On Jan 08, 2010
The name Ayiri Emami to me does not ring a bell until i watched his wedding Carnival on Bisi Olatilo Show. I can not explain this wedding, to me it is just a careless way of disposing of ill-gotten wealth, displaying to the people who how he lavishes the money probably stolen form this same people. In this same wedding 2face was at the reception ground performing, on the same day Dbanj, Yinka Ayefele performed, so also Psquare and many other notable nigeria artist. This is a wedding where Ali Baba, Basket mouth and Many others are the comedians performing live, with so many bill boards all around the City for 'advertisement' of his 'ARRIVAL'.

To finish it all Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor was also there to 'sanctify' his gigantic edifice called 'emami haven'.

I have been on the net to search for the profile of this man called Ayiri Emami at least to substantiate the source of this sudden wealth. The only information is that he was sacked from the Delta state governors cabinet.

Who know this man very well ? Ayiri Emami please speak out, make we know wetin dey happen?

@ Adeheran, I actually just saw the wedding and only two words come to mind 'Thief ' and 'Deluded'. That was not a wedding, that was a carnival , what a shame that the leaders and elders who are meant to be correcting seemed so happy to be involved. He's a thief (IBORI who am sure is his godfather was there) and for God sake it cannot be any kind of work (I MEAN MONEY YOU LABOURED FOR) THAT WOULD HAVE ALLOWED TO SPEND LIKE THAT. I rest my case

OH MY OH MY OH MY GOODDNNEESSSS. THAT WAS THE CRAZIESSSSTTTT EVER WEDDING CARNIVAL IN WHICH STUPENDUOUS ILLGOTTEN WEALTH WAS ON EFFORTLESS DISPLAY.

Man, i had to do the same thing looking up this guy on the net. All i could find was that he is the vice chairman of the board of Delta state waterways security. He is also a leader of a youth group in Delta state. He is also a business man

But commonnnn, thats no justification to that voluminous display of wealth.

Excluding the cars, i estimate the cost of artists,fireworks, events management food and drinks would have 200 million naira NO JOKE!!!!(with artist, psquare, dbang&co, and Tuface and  a host of others conering at least 30 to 50million of that amount)

crazy!!!  shocked

he is reputed to be a big time businessman in Delta state - he owns the 911 Beach & Resort Ugborodo, Chevron officials even visited the facility to show you the type of high profile it has in Delta state.

http://allafrica.com/stories/200905080202.html

Apart from that role, he's been the Vice chairman of the Delta Waterways Security Committee (DWSC), meaning he would have received significant amounts of money in the form of 'security votes' both from the Government and from the oil companies operating in the area.

I am certain he was also involved in the amnesty scheme for militants.

With such links within Delta state, I'm not surprised he is very wealthy. In addition, he is one of the contractors to the Chevron-Sasol EGTL project in Delta state that has made millionaires out of many people involved in contracting for the project.

Does anyone have links or videos of the wedding? Must have been a sight to see.

I just watched this wedding on Bisi Olatilo BEN TV
I made a few phone calls and was told the guy was a militant. It shows how much money people can make from this 'militancy'

For those who need to know, he ws a community thug a few years back b4 ibori discovered him,he champions okere juju a festival held annually in warri,He's not educated,cnt speak fluent English,very sarcastic, with such a wedding i dont need to talk much, Even dangote with visible means of livelihood cnt act lyk dat, simply he's nt over his days of trekking from okere to Maciver,poverty mentality is still a close pal of his, d wedding has come n gone but touching a genuine life would save his children from dejection years from now, his wife!i'd advice her to save for da rainy day b4 poverty calls, No personal beef,just disgusted.

I use to work in warri some yrs back though left abt 2yrs ago. Once rocked a party he attended in a hotel around Ugborikoko, from info gathered then though he is kind in heart, an illiterate and into oil bunkering and political thuggery. Also does biz of thug boats and some kinds with especially Chevron. He is an Itsekiri so the oil money springs.
Please can some body post pix of the wedding lets have a look,

Re: Who Is Ayiri Emami - The Man Who Had The Most Expensive Wedding In History by pro01: 4:24pm On Mar 09, 2010
I watched the wedding on TV too, and believe me, it left me wondering whether hard work pays at all. Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Arnage, Benz S600 etc he bought specially for the wedding. What of the wondrous palace he also built? Lush tennis courts, swimming pool, basketball court, vast acreage, You need to see this obcene display of wealth by a young man in his mid 30's. Whats going on? I heard he recently bought a Range Rover Sport for Tuface who is said to be his 'boy'.

To tell the truth, hard work doesnt pay in this country. No one can say that Ayiri made his stupendous billions legitimately. Its all very depressing. One just has to get rich or die trying.

Re: Who Is Ayiri Emami - The Man Who Had The Most Expensive Wedding In History by tolead: 12:11pm On Apr 08, 2010
@ Aderahaman, It seem like nobody knows who and how this guy makes his money, I know few things about him, he is in his early thirties, he is kind and has the heart of God, let just say he is the good the bad and the ugly, he is a business man, trust me his source of wealth is genuine. He owns the 911hotel in Warri, 911 Beach & Resort Ugborodo; he's been the Vice chairman of the Delta Waterways Security Committee (DWSC), he is also one of the contractors to chevron direct and Chevron -Sasol EGTL project in Delta state.
@ capponno9, yea, he happen to be with Ibori but one thing I can say is he his not a thief, he work hard for his money, when I mean hard as hard as any millionaire has ever worked, what I know is that the real thief don’t display money like this for the fear of EFCC, Which I guess u know too well,
@ Laysia, he may not be educated, of wish I know he is, although he attended university late, but believe me this guy is intelligent, he’s got IQ knowledge and wisdom all it take to become richer if u find urself in his shoes.
Like the saying “poverty is lack of knowledge and wisdom” and not lack of education, there is also a saying "education is the key to success” but not without knowledge and wisdom, you can say he is very sarcastic and his mentality, but never say poverty, he is not from a rich home neither is he from a poor home, his father was one of the Olu of Warri chiefs, if u know Warri kingdom every well then u should know what it takes to become a chief in the then itsekiri kingdom, common laysia, this is 9iger were we have culture and traditions,
Okere juju is a carnival just like Notting Hill carnival in London, to u is different because is in Nigeria, Ibori discovered him, fine, don’t forget someone else also discovered Ibori, if u read the bible very well Jesus discovered Peter and Andrew and make then fishers of men.
@ naira –ner ,I tell u this, one of his business can give him that amount of cash even more in one month, but I also agree with u that even at that he should not display, his wealth in that manner,
@ rich123, he may have being a militant, but we have top militants, I guess u’ve heard about them, but u never heard of him,
@ dlox01, I totally agree with u that one quarter of the money that guy spent on his wedding can eradicate poverty to an extent in Warri. But this is Nigeria.
I think I have said few things about him, I do understand how people feel because I felt the same way too, but I also need to let everyone know that no one is perfect, he is a young man full of life, no good people around him to let him know what u guys are saying everyone want to get their share off him, I believe most people will do the same if they had money at his age, you are only thinking this way because u are not in his shoes, u are older. If u ask most young dude today what will u do if u are given 200million I belt u their reply will be I will invest some, buy myself nice cars, built nice house and give the rest to charity all this he has done.
But lets face one fact, what’s d big deal, is it because he spent the money on wedding, what about the so call suicide bomber who is only 23yrs and spend 67million monthly yet got Nigeria into mess, is that money not 9iger money? The only thing I know is that Nigeria is not a place for this, he should pretend, show the money in a more meaningful way.

All I know is that he is called 'money miss road'. An uneducated guy who benefited from the mismanagement of Niger Delta oil, unscrupulous to know how to make good use of the gain.

He is the chairman of A&E Petroleum, you need to visit escravos to see the kind of biz the company is into, BTW the man no get stolen money, he is working pretty hard for his money. Why earn so much money if u cant spend it? Money is meant to be spent, if u make modest money spend modestly, if u make a ship load of money then spend a ship load of money.
