How We Met
By the bride-to-be, Olufunsho
A friend of mine was on a voice call and had asked me to say hello. Whilst doing that, someone else introduced himself as Ade and complimented my voice and mentioned he hoped to meet someday soon. I didn’t put much thought into it. Fast forward a few months later, I was back in Lagos. The same friend came visiting and asked that I dropped her off somewhere. I did that, and boom, Ade happened to be there! Set up, I thought to myself. This man wouldn’t stop staring and asking if I was shy. Bruh! Stop staring already.
As a sharp girl, I jumped into serious conversations about business. I even offered to sell his shoe products at a commission (baby girl had to stack up the coins as I was job hunting at that time). Soon, our business conversations turned into relationship conversations. This man said I was his wife and we had to make it work. Eh, God! E shock me! No harm in trying, they say. We became official on my birthday, January 17 and we’ve basically been doing life together. Two imperfect humans are intentional towards each other.
It’s been almost 5 years of riding and this guy still Tops the charts of the most annoying yet amazing partner ever. Our friendship trips me always and I wouldn’t trade that for anything in the world. The Yin to my Yang. This guy always stays calm even when I have set the roof on fire. I’m more than blessed to do life with you and I couldn’t have wished for a more qualified partner. Let’s break boundaries, explore the world, stack up our billions and make beautiful babies! ?
