Their love story as Asiri shares it:
I met Abiodun in 2017. She had messaged me on Facebook to come anchor a dinner in their church ( a provincial headquarter of the RCCG). It was in Ipaja.
I didn’t want to go because I dread the traffic in that area as at then. She later called me on phone and there was just something about her voice that I couldn’t say no to.
I went for the program and when everything was going on, I was just carried away by her commitment to the success of the program and the fact that she was in charge.
I left the program and later reached out to her on Whatsapp. We got talking and I realized she finished from OAU and we even attended the same fellowship (RCF OAU).
Funny how I never noticed her on campus. We got talking and I realized we had a couple of mutual friends. At this point, I was already having convictions about her.
So I called one of our mutual friends. They had served together in choir department. I inquired about her and the reports were great. I finally launched into the deep. 😂😂 To cut the long story short, the ministry has moved to the permanent site.
Here’s how Abiodun shares their love story:
The Youth fellowship of my church RCCG DC, was to have our annual February special dinner and I happened to be on the planning committee. Having spent quite some time watching the phenomenally interesting ‘Asiri’, I decided to recommend him to my team.
So, I sent a Facebook message to confirm his availability. We had attended the same fellowship in OAU RCF so I chose Facebook believing that if he saw we had mutual friends, we would get a better deal.
Alas, we couldn’t afford to pay the charges so I had given up but he followed up and subsequently agreed to our price. We continued talking afterwards and became very good friends.
We spoke and chatted quite a lot, and he showed a lot of care. I remember him asking about the things I had on my bucket list and I mentioned skating so he took me skating for the first time. I fell down while skating 🙈 and he looked very worried and concerned. This was our first time meeting after the event.
A few months after, he asked me out. I didn’t see that coming at all and had a lot of reasons to decline. Because I wasn’t about the public life and believed he might be using me to catch cruise but he was very persistent.
Calls, messages, emails, no media was left unused. Eventually, I had no reason left to say no as he had broken down all my walls. I prayed about the decision and had peace in my heart so I agreed.
It’s been four years of falling in love with him all over again and here we are!
