Did you join the NewlyNearly Virtual Gathering by Golden Penny and BellaNaija Weddings?

If you did, thank you for joining and if you didn’t, that’s alright. Our speakers came through with their super strong points on their individual topics and we thought to share them with you.

If you know that we like surprises, do like this ✋?.

Well, we thought we’d surprise you with an insightful session with the delectable Lami Tumaka. Lami Tumaka is a public relations expert who retired from her service as the director of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency after 22 years of exceptional work. She came in with her wealth of knowledge to share words of wisdom on career, family life and parenting. Trust us, this session was power-packed.

When she was asked the greatest factor in marriage, she said:

Communication is of paramount importance in your home. Never forget to communicate.


If you ever wondered what it takes to build a home; she shared

Love, beauty and brains are not enough to build a home.

When asked how to retain individual identities in marriage, she said

Your partner wants you to make contributions. Don’t be too dependent.


In her final words, mutual respect is important for any marriage to work. The husband should respect his wife and the wife respects her husband. Nothing actually prepared us for the fire the amazing Lami Tuamaka came with.
