Nollywood Actor Reveals Why He Uses ‘Tipper’ As Wedding Vehicle


LAGOS JUNE 24TH (NEWSRANGERS)-In 2014, Nollywood actor Victor Osuagwu’s wedding to his wife Roseline was talk of town after the couple showed up in their tipper truck which was their wedding vehicle. The wedding trended for weeks as Nigerians found his gesture very hilarious and many suggested that the actor was only playing one of his comedic roles during his wedding.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, he said that it was a very fulfilling thing to do. “I felt very fulfilled using a tipper truck as my wedding vehicle because that was my target, I never thought of anything less than what happened on that day. Some people thought the picture was from a movie set but a lot of people knew it was my wedding.
It was a long journey going to the reception and we caused a heavy traffic in town. It was not that I did not have the good cars or I did not have the money to rent lovely cars but people that know me are aware that I am a crazy entertainer and I wanted to show the world another part of me,” Osuagwu said.
The actor said his decision to use the truck shocked his wife. He said, “I wanted to carry over entertainment from the television to reality. My wife never knew I was going to do that even Francis Duru who was my best man. When we came out of the church, people just noticed that there was a well decorated truck but nobody knew what was going on.
People thought the lorry was there to convey goods until my wife told me that we should go into the car as her leg was aching because of the shoe she wore. When she asked which of the cars we were to use, I pointed at the lorry. She was so surprised and it was one of the biggest shocks of her life. She was dumbfounded.
Francis Duru overheard what I told my wife and had to ask the same question and I told him it was the lorry my wife and I would ride in. I told everyone to enter all the available SUVs but that we would arrive at the reception in the tipper truck. All my wife said was, ‘this is going to be great but how would I climb into it?’ the vehicle was not an ordinary lorry but a double hassle truck, the big one. When we got to the lorry, the people brought a ladder for her to climb into the lorry.”
Victor Osuagwu is a famous Nollywood comic actor, producer, master of ceremony, television personality and currently the chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Lagos state chapter.
