The Love Story!
From the bride, Tolani
Tolani & Ibukun - BellaNaija April 2015 4Alakija StudiosI think the story starts when one day in class. A friend asked me if I had met this new guy named Ibk. I told him no, and he proceeded to tell me all about him. He said Ibk had moved here (to the US) from Netherlands but is Yoruba, from Nigeria, and in the corps of cadets etc. It’s funny because we both do not remember the exact day we met, but we think it was at an African Students Association (ASA) meeting back in 2009.

Fast forward two years, I was organizing a scholarship pageant and needed some volunteers to help with the event. I reached out to him asking if he was interested in being one of our hosts and he agreed (till today he is convinced that I asked him to participate in the event because I was ‘interested’ in him).

Later in the year we started talking frequently on Facebook and then through texts and then phone calls everyday. We quickly learned that we had a lot in common, both really into Nigerian music…both engineers…both God fearing… both oil kids growing up in different countries…both hate olives etc and so our friendship grew quite rapidly.

Ibukun is truly a blessing to me. He has this natural gift of lighting up a room by bringing smiles and laughter to everyone with his outgoing personality. I admire his drive and dedication in everything he does, and I really appreciate that he also motivates and pushes me to strive for my best as well. He is my very best friend and I don’t know what I would do without him. He has been a constant source of happiness in my life. I thank God every day for bringing him all the way from Netherlands to Texas and into my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

Tolani & Ibukun - BellaNaija April 2015 1Alakija StudiosFrom the groom, Ibukun
Words cannot describe the amount of joy and happiness I have experienced since I started my relationship with Tolani. She is one of the most caring, thoughtful and selfless people I know. She is smart and beautiful. Majority of females seem to have either one or the other. Sometimes, none.

I am blessed and highly favored to be the one she chose to spend the rest of her life with. From the day I met her, I always thought she was too good for me. I know there is a God when he decided to show grace in aligning our paths. She is my best friend, my close companion, my adviser, my love.

We took our time in getting to know each other. We were both attracted to each other but did not want to rush things. The pace of our relationship seemed to bug people as they would often say, “Make it official already!”

I will like to attribute the success of our relationship to our love for God and our deliberate focus on building a solid foundation of friendship. We learnt each other’s likes and dislikes: the fact that she claims to hate green but seems to purchase items in that colour the most, or her utter repugnance of guacamole.

Tolani is a woman of many talents: A dancer, 5 star Chef, an engineer, an athlete, and a classy beautician. She is a shining example of the perfect wife and I am sure that the Lord has a future full of blessings and prosperity ahead of us.Tolani & Ibukun - BellaNaija April 2015 3Alakija StudiosPhoto Credit: Alakija Studios |

    Oil kids. What does that mean?

    • Anon

      April 23, 2015 at 2:33 pm

      Both of them have parents that work(ed) for oil companies which meant they had to move around and live in different countries whilst growing up.

    • LISA

      April 23, 2015 at 2:41 pm

      It means our parent worked for oil companies and got trabnfered every 4 years so we lived in different countries #TEAMOILKIDS!

    • bae

      April 23, 2015 at 2:42 pm

      Oil kids – kids of oil workers who have to move around almost always just because of the nature of their parents job.

    • Stacey

      April 23, 2015 at 8:02 pm

      it means that their parents are both in the oil industry via Nigeria (engineers or etc)

    wow, that’s all i have to say wow! these days starting a relationship is so hard, cos you dont know where to begin, i’m not sure whether to be myself with le boo or code myself, especially when u see girls getting married and u know the girl coded herself all through the relationship. these i’m not sure whether to be ok being just friends or droping the M word once in a while; these days relationships are sooooo difficult to be in, yet its a necessary evil.

    • PurpleiciousBabe

      April 24, 2015 at 7:54 am

      lol… you need to be yourself lol. Its better to always be you.
      On dropping M word.Just ask him where he sees the relationship going or his intentions.
      You will always know in heart though, GUT feeling. x

      If u think relationships are hard work. marriage is harder so don’t fake it cos when u become your true self hmmm … Neither you or ur partner will like it.

    please no one should misconstrue this question. what does it mean to be ”oil kids growing up in different countries”?

    • AmmaB

      April 23, 2015 at 2:23 pm

      I think it means both their parents work in the Oil and Gas Industry and they were posted to different countries based on their roles… ” I think” 🙂

  36. sass

    April 23, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Nice story but the ‘majority of the females don’t have this ‘ comment bit got me somehow..hmmm girls Biko up your game ooo or should I say,it sounded a bit too arrogant? ..well he said what he experienced so I can’t beat him up for that . It’s good you met the woman of your dreams ..praying for mine too very soon

      April 24, 2015 at 12:54 am

      They live in texas, trust me I do too so I can relate! The woman can be drop dead gorgeous but she’ll be lame af or a stripper, or she can be studious, all A’s and she would just abandon her looks cause of school… I get what he’s saying cause most of the ladies I’ve met match his description

    • Ebony

      April 24, 2015 at 9:11 am

      Up your game? If you’re talking about smart game then sure. No one chooses how they look, so I really do not listen when people go on about beauty.

    BN, with the spelling mistakes I see from time to time, I doubt of you guys have an editor. In case you don’t, I’m a freelance editor and will do a good job. Having said that, please change the groom’s name to “Ibukun” not “Ibikun” , as the title spells.

    • kermit the frog

      April 23, 2015 at 4:35 pm

      Maybe you should check your spelling mistakes also because you try to apply for a job as an editor. *just saying*

      before not because…..guess i should i check mine too….lol!

    these days its almost as if love doesnt exist, but some sort of pretentious agreements that becomes a contract… as if true love and real vulnerable/open friendship is extinct…But Alas! this guys are a living proof…wait for it comes ”Only”‘ to those who believe in it… :)..I tap into their love story..they say when you see a good thing celebrate attract what you celebrate…I celebrate your LOVE IBUKUN&TOLANI…
