Just when we were still caught up in awe of what stands as one of the biggest wedding in Ghana Tema-based
Behind every iconic wedding ceremony is an aesthetic wedding designer and that was exactly the made evident after the lavish wedding ceremony of rapper Sarkodie.
Unfortunately, the wedding planner, Big Ideaz is being accused of stealing the most laudable wedding gimmick Ghana or perhaps Africa has ever seen; the descending cake that came from the rooftop to the ground.

A Facebook user with the username Kathrine Akua Akoto-Bamford is accusing the event planner of using her idea for the newlyweds.
In a post shared on Facebook, Kathrine gave what seemed like a believable account of how she communicated her idea with the event planner only to realize her idea has been used by the same person she contacted to her plan hers. This was what she had to say about it.
"I didn’t want to talk about this but it is about time I did.
Stealing of intellectual property and vendor confidentiality breach and disclosure is something that we don’t uphold here.
I contacted BIG IDEAZ for a concept development. Way back in March 2018. He was to help me develop an idea for a wedding cake that will be lowered to the ground on a hoist.
This guy acted oblivious to the concept. I explained everything to him and how I wanted it. Sent him videos of the place as well.
We agreed on a price last month only for him to stop contacting again so I picked another vendor.
Its surprising to see the same vendor who i discussed this with since march, who bailed out on me in June, do the same concept for another client SARKODIE which he never made mention of since march.
Creativity doesn’t lie in one persons head and I know nothing is exclusive to one particular person, but for him to not mention it and actually make me take the pain of guiding him through it since the beginning after conceptualizing the idea is appalling.
Big Ideas respect creativity from your clients and maintain disclosure and confidentiality. These pretenses don’t auger well for business. What a shitty rip off!!"
Here are some screenshot images that backed her claim.
The wedding planner had earlier posted a long congratulatory note to his team which executed the feat at Sarkodie’s wedding
