Meet Nigeria’s Famous Wedding Photo Bomber, The Drummer Boy

We’ve had our eyes on this photo bomber for over a year now. Just like us, he loves Nigerian weddings and he has attended quite a number of them. This photo bomber is also a celeb!!

Everyone (and we mean EVERYBODY – the bride, the groom, and the bridal party) wants a picture with his royal highness. He has been photographed by a lot of top wedding photographers – from Akintayotimi, Jobi Photography, Jide Kola to Lypix Photography, and many others.

He hasn’t had to work too hard for all he has accomplished so far; all he has to do is stand steady at his base at the Protea Select in Ikeja, talking drum in hand and doing just that brings him all of this attention. Here’s proof that this Drummer Boy statue is one of the most famous photo bombers at Nigerian weddings in Lagos.
