The popular actor was among the dignitaries that graced the ceremony to support her colleague in the Nollywood industry.
With his appearance at the ceremony, it is now assured that the actor has recovered from his ailment.
He could be seen posing with other celebrities in Imo where the event took place.
Dominic married Fidelis Anosike yesterday in a star-studded wedding ceremony attended by almost all the industry celebrities.
Actresses including Uche Jombo, Chioma Akopotha, and Ini Edo, amongst others, are part of a number of Nollywood stars, who have since arrived in Southeast Nigeria for the celebrity wedding.
Her excited friends have since been keeping fans of the actress up-to-date with happenings via updates shared on Instagram.
On Monday, Chioma Akpotha shared a video wherein she and her colleagues were seen grooving with Dominic, in anticipation of her big day.

Rita Dominic’s bridal shower took place on Sunday, April 17, and had in attendance A-list Nollywood actresses including the likes of Joke Silva, Edo, Kate Henshaw, Nse Ikpe Etim, and Uche Jombo among others.
In December 2020, the actress made her fans giddy with excitement as she shared for the first time photos of her boo, Fidelis Anosike on Boxing Day, December 26.
“Merry Christmas..❤” she simply captioned the photo.
Her celebrity friends trooped in their numbers into her comment section as they celebrated with her. From Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo to Mercy Johnson, they all celebrated the movie star and her new man.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo last year, the movie star revealed why she chose that time to finally show off her man.
Quizzed as to why she finally chose to show off her man, Rita admitted that sometimes it is necessary to share certain things with people and her lover turned out to be the one.
Sharing a snippet of their interview session on Instagram, Chude wrote:
“#WithChude So I asked Rita why she shared the viral photo or her partner last year. Amid giggles and laughter, she told me why. “Oh my goodness Chude! It just happened, a spur of the moment, happiness…
“… once in a while you want to share certain things with people and I felt like my lovers, had been there for me for decades. We all had a bad year last year with COVID and we could do with some happiness. I feel you on this.”
Dominic’s man, Anosike is the founder of Folio Media Group, a multi-media company that owns Daily Times Nigeria (founded 1926), the country’s oldest newspaper.
Rita Dominic was born into the Royal Nwaturuocha family of Aboh Mbaise local government area in Imo State.
She made her Nollywood debut back in 1998 starring in the movie, A Time to Kill. She has gone on to star in over 100 Nollywood films since then.
In 2004, she bagged the award for “Most Outstanding Actress” at the prestigious City People Awards.
