“The invite came on Monday mid-night so we saw it on Tuesday morning and the event was to be on Wednesday so I had a very nice outfit that I had never worn since my birthday but when I tried my outfit it was not okay so I tried reaching all the big designers but I could not get a dress in less than an hour.

“So I went for a very simple dress we are sorry we did not meet your expectations but next time we will do better,” Matubia said.

The couple went on to reveal that they could not miss the event as they were paid to attend.
