How We Met
By the Bride, Sika
Sele and I met at Murtala Mohammed Airport Lagos over 5 years ago. I was shooting a travel episode of 53 Extra for Africa Magic. So, I was in full presenter mode when he spotted me in the check-in line, chatting away and being my usual bubbly self with my crew members. On several occasions, he would give me side glances, which was followed by awkward eye contact and then the need to start small talk. But his game wasn’t that tight so I just knew he was feeling the girl, oh, feeling feeling the girl ooh.
However, it was only when we arrived in SA at baggage claim that he had the courage to ask me out for dinner. Long story short, we had such a genuine connection that after just 3 days of knowing each other we decided to throw caution to the wind and make our relationship official. 3 months later, we broke up due to long-distance and all the wahala it comes with.
But breakup or not, this boy would not let me hear word. He made sure his presence was never missing in my life regardless of any other entanglements I had in my life. In 2017 however, I moved to South Africa. Still playing hard to get, he stayed friends with me until finally he wore me down and we rekindled our love. The rest, as they say, is history. ❤️
