Her choice of wedding dress generated backlash and criticisms among Muslims on social media, including Kaduna APC chieftain, Dr, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, who discribed it as ‘unbecoming of her faith and culture”.


In a statement issued on Instagram on Tuesday, October 5, Fatima said that the colour fabric under the dress is same with her skin which made people think she exposed her skin.
