How We Met
By the bride-to-be, Freda
Niyi and I had mutual friends all through our university days but we never crossed paths. Even after university, we’d individually go visiting our friends, and still, we never met. In 2016, I redeployed to Lagos to complete my NYSC and was looking to serve in an office close to where I lived then to avoid the hassle of Lagos traffic.
Then one of our mutual friends suggested an opening that he thought I could fill temporarily until I complete my service year. I didn’t pay the suggestion much attention but I eventually decided to give it a try. On getting there a few days later, I met Niyi for the first time and thinking “this guy is good-looking o”. But as a sure girl, I remained composed. Our paths started crossing more often and we became good friends.
After a while, he started requesting to hang out with me and I didn’t get it because we were supposed to be gees. I was reluctant but he was able to convince me to go out with him. Niyi suddenly became the easiest person to talk to after that. We became so infused that we were a major part of each other’s life after such a short time. The connection was just effortless and after a few months of dating, I was convinced Niyi was my husband.
