Our Love Story
from the Bride, IfunanyaIfunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-763_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos
We had a lot of mutual friends from UNN – University of Nigeria Nsukka, but I had never heard of him actually. And then he added me up on BBM in February 2014. I’m guessing my name came up among his friends and he decided to get to know me. Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-451_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe LagosSo we started chatting that day, and I thought I was chatting with a girl because of his name, Nazy. I thought it was short for Chinaza (It’s actually short for Nnazilim). It was even weird for me cos I was getting that chyking vibe from him, so I thought he was a lesbian LOL. But then around 5pm when I just got out of the lab, he called me, and I heard one husky voice, “Hello, this is Nazy”.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-2322_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe LagosSo I dismissed him out of anger. I was there wondering, “how did he get my PIN, and my number on top?” So we didn’t talk till April. He asked me where I was spending Easter, and I told him I’ll be in Abuja in my sister’s house.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-2254_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe LagosWe met on the 21st of April, Easter Monday 2014 in Gwarimpa at Chicken Republic, I think. He came with his friend, it was cool, we clicked. I got to know that he somehow had an attachment to entertainment. But I didn’t know the extent at that time. I was disappointed though, I didn’t have energy for that kind of limelight life.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-2213_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos

Then I got to know how involved he was. It was a typical NO for me. I remember I kept telling him that I am a simple person and I’m probably not the kind of girl he’ll want to be with. I’m an introvert, extremely shy, and I didn’t think it was going to work.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1802_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos

But then we talked a lot, a whole lot. First thing that struck me was how ambitious he is. There was no backing down in anything he set out to do. He is also extremely spontaneous and generous. And we hung out a couple of times. He got to meet my parents, I got to meet some of his family members and his friends too … and it just happened.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-2009_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1935_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1320_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-2063_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe LagosA day before my birthday, he put a ring on it. He knows me and exactly what I wanted – it was a very private proposal. He got talking, really emotional that night and the ring came out.Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-110_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-371_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-744_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1163_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1090_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos Ifunnaya-and-Nazy-Prewedding-1207_BellaNaija Weddings 2016_Hard Rock Cafe Lagos

      Congrats to the couple!pretty babe! Like Betty Irabor said women have a means of livelihood !have something doing !and before anyone come here to insult go and read Proverbs 31 o!Inugo! The young girls in Nigeria today ,very greedy!the next thing they will start writing chronicles!
      It is well with this couple! I am not saying it will go awry o!my advice to young women empower yourselves that’s all! The greed to enter wealth is very rife with this young women in Nigeria today! Leading to marriages collapsing left ,right and center !
      @ Candy me I was already wondering o! Nigerians always see bitterness! I don’t understand all this young girls that will just see money and the next thing they develop love! The next thing they become responbility with their whole family!I love to make my own money !a woman should earn her own money! A woman who collects a gift that her parents cannot afford or which she cannot afford for herself is a thief !so women from today anything you cannot buy or afford for yourself do not collect from a man!even if he is your husband ,because one day you and your family will receive insults!
      I believe Sisi Yemmie and her mom gave this advice a few days ago!any small thing hater,bitterness,you want to live high life that you have not worked for!

    • kiki

      September 8, 2016 at 1:36 pm

      Emm loved your post until u said collecting from your husband if you cant afford it is wrong. NOT correct !

    • nana

      September 7, 2016 at 2:10 pm

      e nor concern you, if you like suffer, she nor like loool

    • Lacey

      September 7, 2016 at 9:29 pm

      @nana if you like don’t get something going for yourself !instead of looking for paymaster up and down!And my God will have to forbid me to suffer!back to sender!so my advice to every grown woman out there is to plot your own graph financially,do not leave it to any man!marrying a man who uses money to entice you does not give you 100% access to his wealth, some of them are broke ass dudes who even know you are from a wealthy home!especially in that Lagos where I have seen so many cases where broke ass dudes fronting and packaging, after all the destination wedding and excessive spending and company name,the woman and her deceived family becomes bread winners !so women be wise!

    For people saying women should empower themselves and stylishly subbing the bride, she is a proud pharmacist which is a noble profession, the fact that she is serving doesn’t mean she is a broke ass, learn to find out things before you jump into conclusion.

    @lacey, its people like you that don’t have things going for themselves or will open a silly one man show and be making noise CEO, shes a youth corper, as she has seen husband to marry now she should tell him to wait till she starts a business or work . All the gwegs that have things going for themselves nor be husband most of them dey still find? what she decides to do after her marriage is up to her. All this sanctimonious holier than thou attitude will lead you nowhere, if you see husband marry oo
