Finding the One: How They Met

From the bride: We first met in the middle of April 2010 – we were both studying at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State.  It was my first year and he was in his third. We met at an outing event organized for new students and got talking, became friends., and later started a relationship which brought us here.

He proposed July 2014. We were at his place, watching a Nigerian love movie on Africa Magic.  And then, when they got to a part in the movie where the actor proposed to his girlfriend, he paused the movie and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I said “YES”.

  4. Just like Adebimpe and Olayinka’s love story, I’ll be getting married to my University(Olabisi Onabanjo University) boo in February 2016. We started dating on the 19th of February 2010,he proposed on August 30th 2015,we did our introduction on September 27th 2015. It’s also taking us 4 months to plan without a wedding planner. I’m happy for the both of them and I wish them a blissful marriage. Getting married to a nice person that you both attended same University and dated for years is the best thing that will ever happen to any one.

    • Thanks for your comment, Adanna. I know, it feels good reading about a wedding story that the couple’s love story is similar to yours, especially that you and your groom-to-be were also in the same University as the featured couple.
