In their quest to please people and also portray some sort of image, most people organize grand weddings and end up regretting especially when they took loans to do the wedding. It is rather unfortunate society tag people who do simple weddings as “cheap” or “classless” hence the desire by most couples to meet the standard. one of such people who regretted making such decision is Ubi Franklin.
Music executive and entrepreneur, Ubi Franklin has revealed that the biggest money mistake he has ever made is the money he invested into his grand wedding which lasted only a year.
Ubi had a grand wedding with his ex-wife, Lilian Esoro, in November 2015. Their marriage however crashed one year later.
Ubi who was a guest on a TV show for Business Day stated;
”I think the biggest money mistake for me was the money for my wedding. That was the biggest money mistake because a few guys that had experience at the time told me to just do something small and then go home. When I see people do big scale wedding, I laugh because it’s a party, it is just for a day and when that day is done, it’s done. Yes they say memories but you see, you can create memories without spending billions. So I think that is one of the biggest money mistake I have made” .
If I had known, I would have done something smaller, classier than what I did because I did like almost three months of different events.
”From 2012 till now, I have made over 10 billion but didn’t keep it because I didn’t have financial discipline to know that I could invest that money in something else that could generate money“he added.
