“I Was So Nervous and I Really Didn’t Know What to Expect” – Toolz Shares her Feelings from her Introduction Day + More Photos




Media personality Toolz had her official Introduction Ceremony to Capt. Tunde Demuren a few days ago (click here if you missed it) and taking to her personal website, the OAP gave an insight into her day.

She wrote:

Ishhh is getting real!!
Can’t believe I’m going to be a married woman, it’s all so terribly grown up lol.

I didn’t want to put up anything on my site, but I’m trying to make it a bit more personal, so let’s see how this goes.

Anyhoo, so on Saturday 5th September, I had my introduction. This is where the families of the bride and groom officially meet. We had expected about 100 people, I hear there were about 250 people there! Eeek!!
I didn’t sleep well the night before, because I was so nervous and I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve been to events like this before, but I’m generally in a corner somewhere just observing.
Today the attention was all on me…and that was so unnerving! I’m used to being on stage, but then work-mode has been activated, so in my mind its all about work.
I was so nervous, couldn’t eat…also because I was paranoid that I would get food stuck in my braces and would end up having lots of pictures with efo (spinach) hanging from my teeth lol.
I worked myself up so much that I ended up developing a nervous tick. My right eye twitched for hours and I could barely stop myself from freaking out….but when I saw him aka Bae the twitching stopped…(and the crowd went awwww!)

All thanks to God!
Much love to family and friends for making it all happen, looking forward to Part 2 & 3!

A big thank you to:
Valerie Davids for the dress she ‘built’ for me
Lois of Prospotted Makeover for the make-up
Lush Jewels for the jewelry
Itunu Fabrics & Bimmms

      I love me some toolz. She’s funny about efo been stuck in her braces. I can totally relate. She looks beautiful, and sexy. Love is in the air. Captain Tunde, take care of your queen bcos i know she will take good care of you. I like the green color. Handsome groom too. I pray, their love will continue to grow

    Congratulations dear, all the best. This is one marriage I just know will stand the test of time. I feel it. Her husband looks so lost in love and sincere. I know people change but based on looks I doubt it.

      My thoughts eggzackly. I was looking at him and thinking, ‘this man really loves this woman’. It’s in his eyes.

      I kinda know what you mean. He looks really enamoured and she looks sheepishly in love. May they be happy together forever. Amen

    Awww. Cute. Tolu Oniru. So I don’t understand how peeps will attend events they weren’t invited to. *Shrugs*

    My intro is in a few months, bae and I are based in Houston. U.S. But intro will be in naija. We are expecting 80 guests, 40 from each side.

    That’s just too much for me.

    But my mom keeps inviting more aunties, uncles and friends they haven’t seen in ages. I don’t understand. I’m always like ” mom this is NOT a reunion, it’s JUST an intro”

      @Sade, I get u. Moms are just moms there is nothing you can do about this. Just enjoy your day. Shikena. My older sista wanted 20 people max. 10 from each side. The question my parents asked was “Did we ask you for money to feed the people”? In the Nigerian culture, if your parents are very out going and they attend other people’s events, their friends and acquintances will surely reciprocate. So, just don’t fret. Allow them do what they want for the Intro and traditional marriage. You can then take control of the white wedding. In as much as it is your day, it is also their day. Good Luck.

    Congrats Toolz. You look beautiful. And it’s interesting how some couples look alike. They smile almost the same, the mouth area looks alike.

    congrats to her and i wish her all the best with tunde. But, my opinion she should keep her private life away from the media. no need for announcing her intro on IG, which was buzzing around on diffrt pages. yes shes a princess and we all know shes madly in love with tunde; its doesn’t matter. Posting travelling, , etc. I am not hating pls, i love her.. People like Omawunmi, Uche Pedro( bella naija) who keep their lives personal away from dramas, you hardly see them posting blabla.

      Madam we are different. Everybody cannot be the same. We have Introverts and Extroverts. Let her live her life the way it pleases her. You can’t dictate how people should run their race. The world be be a very boring place if everybody is secluded like Uche Pedro, there wont be blogs ether because they wont have any news to post when its all secret lives

      Allow her sha! She’s excited. If she doesn’t post stuff at this time, when else will she do so? It’s once in a lifetime so I get her. Besides, Toolz gets a pass because she isn’t as overexposed as some people IMO so I dont think after the wedding she’ll still be posting a lot of stuff.

    • No be girls?

      September 9, 2015 at 1:48 pm

      For where?
      Girls must let everyone know they are married now, shame their ex and update their friends!

      Please don’t be a hater. The fact that your marriage didn’t work out as you planned doesn’t mean hers will be the same. She will have nothing but joy in her home. If you have nothing nice to say, please zip it up.

    • Shandi

      September 9, 2015 at 10:40 am

      Olu, did you even read what Maromec typed? Some of you lack comprehension skills. No wonder it’s a major requirement for securing a job.

      Congratulations Tolu!

      I cant help but notice how insulting this olu of a commentator is.. Always drawing assumptions and conclusions on people’s simply by a mere comment! You must be such an uncivilized fellow

    nice… where are the parents in the pictures.. now that you are going into marriage my candid advise for you guys is to give your marital life less public notice.. it pays

  32. Alert!

    September 9, 2015 at 2:45 pm

    Congrats! Though I think Toolz is making so much of a big deal out of this marriage thingy of hers..congrats again

    • Sade

      September 9, 2015 at 4:51 pm

      han Han. Did you just say marriage thingy. That’s mean hearted. Newsflash. If you haven’t realized. Marriage is a big deal. Because a man or woman made the decision to stick with each other for better or worse.

      If it’s not a big deal like you claimed, then why are most ladies falling over themselves to be married. No offense please.

      In Nigeria, in case you haven’t realized IT IS A BIG DEAL. With proper investigation, we ll realize you are either one of her friends or family. Mtscheeeeww.

    • Alert!

      September 9, 2015 at 5:23 pm

      Calm down madam Sade! Its not that serious nau

    September 10, 2015 at 12:55 am

    Thank GOD for the damsel, wishing her a fruitful marriage. My counsel is that she live up to the expectations of her husband by paying the necessary prize to sustain her marriage and should be prayerful too because evil men and women abound so that they don’t scatter. her marriage.
