How We Met – Rabi & Abdullahi
Rabi and Abudllahi met about 7 years ago at a bonfire night at the American University of Nigeria, Yola. He had been seeing Rabi around school for a while and that party was the perfect opportunity to talk to her, so he did.
When he approached her, they spoke after a while she complained that she had become tired of standing. Abdullahi did not hesitate to walk about 2 miles to a nearby classroom and grab this babe a seat – what a gentleman move! That single gesture alone made them good friends and eventually a few weeks after, they started dating.Proposal
Abdullahi proposed to Rabi on her birthday – too cute! They went exploring together and he popped the question and in return she said “yes” gladly.
Soon after, the groom says their parents quickly sealed it the traditional way –
“our traditional wedding came as a shock for the both of us! After I proposed, it is customary for parents of the groom to formally go and seek for a woman’s hand in marriage for their son from the bride’s parents. They bride’s parents accepted, and the traditional wedding was conducted there and then – that moment! We were both told after it was done. It is one day I would never forget, because of the circumstances that led to the traditional wedding!”
