(MARRAKESH, MOROCCO) — Lebanese billionaire and former prime minister Najib Mikati celebrated his son’s wedding on Saturday at the El Badi Palace in Marrakesh, Morroco.
Sources say over 1,000 people attended Malick Mikati’s wedding, including Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab and Egyptian singer Amr Diab.
The Mikati family also hosted a brunch party at the La Mamounia luxurious hotel on Sunday.
The El Badi Palace is a tourist attraction in Morocco, which was commissioned by the Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansur, sometime shortly after his accession in 1578.
Najib Mikati served as the Prime Minister of Lebanon two times, from April to July 2005 and from January 2011 to August 2013. He is also the co-founder of telecommunications company Investcom, which he sold in 2006 to South Africa’s MTN Group for $5.5 billion.
U.S. Forbes magazine estimated his fortune at nearly $3.3 billion, making him the richest man in Lebanon.
