If I ever met angels, they must have been these two sweethearts. They are such a kind hearted couple and it fills my heart with joy that they have made it thus far. It also confirms the fact that God indeed gives people the kind of partner they deserve. Busola and Goke deserve each other. I am so happy for you guys. Enjoy their beautiful story...
On the 13th of June, God willing, I'd be walking down the aisle with my love muffin I met on an unplanned trip to Abuja.
Hmmm. So my cousin (Nike) was in Nigeria for a 3 months attachment and on her last weekend, I arranged to take her out (I remember she had to decline loads of invitations so she could make my outing... Feeling special). I was there along with a couple of my friends because I wanted it to be a memorable one for her, not knowing she won't be the highlight of the day. Muyo, Alesh, Bisoye, Ope and Toye were in attendance.
Apparently, one of my guys had noticed a table filled with only ladies and was proposing we merge tables but the girls were a bit reluctant (their normal shakara, lol) until one of them noticed me. Apparently, friends with my Ex-May friend (Tolu Falade) whose cousin (Keji) was part of the crew. So they agreed for the merger afterwards since it was already a family affair and we all had fun. We decided to go our separate ways but then, I had noticed one quiet looking "Busola". I didn't make any move tho. My friend Ope volunteered to drop them at their hotel for safety reasons since they didn't know town at all.
The next day, Ope called me to go along with him to the Mall. I was quick to tag along with him (we all know why) only for me to get there and "Madam" wasn't there. "Where is your sister', I asked Bolanle (my day one Nigga) the response I got was 'she is sleeping'. I asked myself why on earth someone will come to Abuja for the first time and be sleeping at 6pm. I suggested we went to their hotel room to look for her trouble and that was it. From that day, we became good friends and later, a confidant. She had all the qualities I wanted in my woman. I couldn't look elsewhere, and I knew I had found her☺️. I couldn't also go to Lagos without first dropping by at her house just to see her face and of course, I cherish every moment we spend together.
So I planned to come to Lagos for Siji and Gbemi's family introduction and I informed my guys of my intentions. They all agreed to it and so we formed a BBM group to look for a suitable venue for the so called 'hang out'. Apparently, Busola was a very active member of the group, suggesting venues and plans for the day (she didn't know she was designing a coup for herself, lol). We later settled for Lekki Leisure Lake and I had mobilized all my guys and friends including Gbemi's friends and sisters who were around for the Introduction. I ordered for the ring which was delivered in Lagos as expected.
On the d-day, all plans were on deck. I remember she was going through my phone pictures and noticed loads of engagement ring pictures; I was quick to brush off any insinuations stating it was for Damilare, who was also planning his wedding but then I asked her if she liked it and she said yes.
My friend Ara offered to cross the Lake to the other end so he could write 'WILL YOU MARRY ME' on the sand. I couldn't do anything without my nigga there (I'm sure u know who by now), she had gone for her ICAN lectures. On sighting her, I knew it was time. Different questions kept going through my mind both negative and positive, I knew it was fear but deep down I was convinced it was what I wanted.
A very unconventional way to meet 'mon coeur' on her first trip to a strange land. Two factors of course led to this, God's divine direction and his heavenly grace. As humans, we cannot do without these two. I can't wait for June 13 to seal God's perfect plan for our lives.
