How we met
by the bride, Chinenye:
I was invited to a wedding in 2022 as a regular guest but 3 days before the wedding, the bride reached out to me to ask if I could be her bridesmaid last minute. The normal me would’ve been upset and probably declined but my spirit asked me to just accept and join in her joy. I was going through a lot during that period but decided I’ll go out and have fun because, in the midst of my storm, I found out that I passed my exams and would be a Chartered Accountant.
I attended the wedding with the intention of dancing my sorrows away and boy! I did just that! I made sure I had a good time and eventually went home. Fast forward 2 weeks later, the bride sent me a message saying, “There’s one of my husband’s friends that has been disturbing him to get your number, can I give him your number?” And I replied, “Biko no oo!” Honestly speaking, I didn’t want to hear “pim!” from the male gender but she asked if she could give him my Instagram handle so her husband can rest! I obliged.
Within 0.3 seconds, I got a friend request and that was how he camped in my DM for weeks till I finally obliged to go on a date with him. He didn’t hold back his intentions, he politely asked “I want to be more than an Instagram friend.” I told him to go and pray! I guess his prayers worked because within a few months after that.. we got married and we are living and loving together, Happily Ever After!
