“We used to share 40 Naira as Students!” Biodun & Deji’s Love Story & Wedding Video

Published

 on

Biodun and Deji - Nigerian Wedding Video on BellaNaija Wedidngs 2015-001Deji and his bride, Biodun met as teenagers.

They met through her older sister, Omo and his cousin, PJ who were friends. She was 15 at the time, and had just finished secondary school. She said she got a crush on him INSTANTLY, but because he was 4 years older, she kept it to herself.

Around him, she acted shy, but she would always urge her best friend, Khadijah, to escort her to his street. After a few years, one fateful day, her sister and PJ teased him about a boyfriend, and she confessed she liked him! And that’s where it started.

However, she ‘friend-zoned’ him in University, until one day, when he brought a girlfriend to his house. She was downstairs with her best friend, Khadijah, and he asked her to leave to make his female guest more comfortable. Her jealousy sparked her to leave upset, but when she returned that evening, she sat him down and told him he’s looking at his girlfriend!

The most touching part of their story is their humble beginnings,

“from the onset we used to share our little stipends (as students) like 50 Naira.”

He then proposed with the tab of a Coke can years later!

    Oh my!!! I usually don’t comment on BN but after watching this video, I have to comment. I am so happy for both of you. The humility in the couple, the originality of their feelings for each other, the fear of God that is so obvious and the understanding is absolutely admirable. I pray that your union will indeed be blessed and I wish you many more decades together.

    Trust me…it doesn’t get better or greater than this…to think there’s still true&real love like this is more imagined than a reality in modern day Nigeria. I wish this couple the very best of everything throughout their journey in life and may the good bless them abundantly for letting them share their great love story with us, to remind us the “LOVE” is the most beautiful thing in the world
