ollywood actress, Rita Dominic, who recently got married to the love of her life, Fidelis Anosike, has revealed how a designer, simply known as Michael, saved her wedding from being ruined following the UAE ban on Nigerians.
According to the actress, her wedding almost got ruined because it became difficult for Nigerians to enter UAE for another flight to England.
However, she got saved by a designer whom she thanked immensely.
In her words: “Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @michael5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries.
“The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @michael_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going and above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.”
The couple, who had their traditional wedding earlier this year, will be joined by friends and family as they say their vows abroad.

It was gathered that the lovers met during the 2017 Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) session on the film business.
The 46-year-old actress sent social media into a frenzy when she shared some cosy photos with her partner on her official social media pages in December 2020. It was the first time in her 24-year-career that the actress would ever reveal her lover’s identity.
