How Ayotunde & Adewunmi Met
by Adewunmi
Ok here goes….
My best friend’s sister moved to Kano after she got married in 2010. Fast forward, March 7th 2011 we all got the good news of the arrival of their baby boy. My best friend wasn’t in town at that time, I would have naturally waited for her and gone together but I ended up travelling with a mutual friend Zainab. I guess a higher power was at work.

When we landed in Kano, we drove the house, this young man (Ayotunde) approached the car said hi to my friend and as he approached me, my eyes flashed over to his ‘ring finger’. I noticed he was wearing a band so I just tuned off assuming he was married. He said hello and I responded in a cold manner because I didn’t want to be encouraging anything!

As the day progressed, I noticed him in the pool in the midst of about four or so girls talking and all; I thought to myself and he’s supposed to be married SMH :). It was time for dinner, one of the girls who had latched on to him came into the kitchen asking for food for him and I was ‘thinking can’t she see the band on his finger’?!

Next day was the day of the naming at the ceremony I remember the cleric talking about how “goodnews begets goodnews” and all the singles present would get their God ordained partners I remember saying a very loud AMEN that got everybody chuckling (he apparently said his AMEN as well).

Landing in Lagos a few days later, my friend who I travelled with sent me a message on BB saying Ayotunde likes me. I go “Zainab I can see you don’t like me oo so it’s someone that’s married you want me to date?” She then goes ahead to explain that the ring was decorative and he wasn’t married and then she gives him my pin, we got talking and the rest is history….

The Proposal
by Ayotunde
By November 2012, I was convinced beyond doubt that we were meant to be together. So I started the planning on how to get the ring. I had help from my jewellery consultant. Once we had agreed design, the next was how to get the ring size.

In a twisted tale of attending to me when I was ill, she forgot her fashion rings. It was an opportunity for me to get the ring size. I called my neighbour to help measure the ring and help bring it back before she came to check on me for that day. It was a close one though as my neighbour got in 5 minutes before she did. Immediately we commissioned the making of the ring.

Next stop was the magical proposal.

My cousin HF and I had begun hatching the plan for the proposal. We hit the studio and did the recording. The next task was now how to get her to the “event”. This magical day was the birthday of the baby that was born in 2011 (the event that we both attended when we met in Kano) – March 7. We agreed that Finesse Entertainment (HF’s Record Label) was unveiling a new artiste and we wanted support from family and friends at the Genesis Deluxe Cinema in the Palms, Lekki.

We had planned all this and Adewunmi was set to represent me at the Palms to support my cousin’s record label (I claimed I was stuck at the office! Little did she know.)
Getting her to the venue was a real suspense drama. She had to pull through nasty traffic that day. Just at the last minute, she decided to go home to my cousin instead of the Palms. It was at that point that I started sweating! I began to cry foul to alert my cousin to change her decision and get her to come to the venue.

It was tough, she had little to eat, she was there chatting me up and I was responding like I was back at the office feeling her plight and displaying empathy.

If only she knew.

So the trailers to the movies started and the trailer unveiling this new artiste came up, the rest is concluded in the video. The baby that connected us celebrated his 2nd birthday on that day and we went in together to propose to Adewunmi.

Watch!

      i guess everyone is entitled to what they prefer but i see the whole wedding as a public display of love and i guess the proposal can be as well.

    Awwwww bless! i almost cried….*sigh*and that was how I got a very(in my opinion) thoughtless proposal from my (now) fiance…I love him and all that but considering all that we’ve been through,the proposal just came across as something he just wanted to get out of the way*sad face*…While i have no unrealistic expectations of marching bands and jets in the sky, yes i have had a certain way i would have liked to be proposed to and I feel somewhat sad that he,who is supposed to know me better than anyone else didn’t even come close to giving me a heartwarming memory of the day he proposed…seeing proposals like this just get me icky all over again.I’ve been brooding about it and before I get eaten raw,any ideas on how to rectify this? I use God beg una,na question I ask oh…lol!

    • Berry Dakara

      May 9, 2013 at 3:46 pm

      LOL! Awwwwww. Maybe focus on the better qualities of your guy, and downplay the fact that the proposal was lackluster.

      It dawned on me to be vocal about the kinda ring I want (not expensive but he should have worked for it), and the kinda proposals I like and dislike – CLUBS AND BARS NOT ALLOWED! NO CHURCH TOO!

      As far as rectifying it, if he’s not overly sensitive, maybe you can let him you know that you’d hoped he would have put more thought and romance into your proposal. Hopefully he gets the hint and does something pretty on another occasion or even randomly. 🙂

      haba babe, calm down. The proposal is done already, just look forward to the wedding and at least that you can plan to your own taste for the memory to last a life time. Marriage still dey una for front o

    • Tinu

      May 10, 2013 at 3:56 pm

      He can rectify this but it won’t be a proposal. just let him know you would have loved it if he had put some efforts in the proposal and let him know he owes you one. He can make it up to you with a surprise birthday outing with friends….that would give him the opportunity to say all the things he should have said during the proposal in the presence of your guests.

    • Intoxyka

      May 14, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      Eya, not many people are like that o. You know with the cameras and all. Im sure he cares for you deeply and that’s what counts. Think not about the proposal but about the beautiful days you are going to spend together and the lasting memories that you are going to create.

    • 'Olivia Pope'

      May 17, 2013 at 10:25 pm

      Let it go my dear. I do understand your pain…but let the proposal go and focus on dropping hints about your hopes for other events: 40th birthday, one year anniversary et al.
      God bless you and yours.

    Such a romantic proposal, it brought tears 2 my eyes. i always dreamed of getting this, Unfortunately i didn’t get this kind of romantic proposal from my husband, but fortunately wat he doesn’t say in words, he makes up for by his actions. I look forward to seeing ur wedding pix on BN & wish u both a blissful life together.

    Lovely, lovely, lovely. God bless your home, Ayotunde and Adewumi….
    But ladies, may I say that it’s beyond the proposal? I got a very simple proposal but have a fantastic husband and marriage. So let’s be careful not to place too much emphasis on the proposal and wedding ceremony.

    @Ollanma, just tell him how you feel. He might be able to somehow make it up to you in other ways.

    • pretty woman

      May 9, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    OLLANMA

    girlfriend, i feel you die. i also got a thoughtless proposal from my fiance. he proposed in my apartment (the ring was absolutely stunning though), while seated on my bed. but you know what, i am still thankful. at least, he made an effort to get the ring and propose. i know how much i have been waiting to find the right man and one who i love and i am absolutely crazy about and who also feels the same way towards me.

    so many girls out there dont even have a boyfriend, how much more a committed boyfriend not to talk of a fiance. some girls, na belle the guy take marry them, no proposal, nothing.for some, the guy just said ”what date can my family meet yours”. no proposal ring, nothing.

    that said,i hope my bf makes up for his lacklustre proposal with a wow wedding and a even more wow honeymoon. the fact that, its just his personality. . . he is laid back, hates the limelight and not a hopeless romantic like me.. heheheh

    so girlfriend, be thankful to God for what you have.

      May 12, 2013 at 6:43 am

      My proposal was lack lustre too. IT happened in his apartment, we were about leaving for his village(funny) to see his folks. I was heading for the door when he grabbed my arm, pulle dme towards him and made this speech about me being the love of his life and so on. Then slipped the ring on my finger. It wasn’t great but it was HIM, he is not one for theatrics though he can be very creative. I never imagined how i would like to be proposed to but i understand where y’all are coming from. Just enjoy it, if you really know your partner and know his heart is in the right place then no need to worry.BUT for future purposes, i would let him know so he could put a little more thought into anything else he may do for u.

It’s great to know that not all Nigerian men have forgotten what true romance is like. While I’m not keen on public stuff like this. It was oh so sweet to behold!!

    OMG!!!! this proposal is definitely a tearjerker! i pray such comes from the One for me. i’ve had proposals bt they come from my dearly beloved clueless igbo men dat believe if they meet my people, have a talk, then its a done deal. thankfully its easier to say no to such. dont get me wrong, i dont say no cos of the style of proposals, its just really more about the xter. anyways, in which ever manner d God sent HIM pops d question, i’ll definitely be accepting.

It was sooo moving- i was sitting on the bed while reading but was “holding my Lappy tight and sitting in semi-foetus position on the floor- after watching! I pray for true thoughtful love for me and my Single counterparts out there- Amen.(“stumbling while uncurling mysef!”)
