Let’s talk about love and medicine! You must have heard many people compare love to the use of medicine in the sense that it brings wholeness. Well… while, nothing can really be compared to love, love certainly can be found in medicine. Not drugs in this case, but the practice! 🤭
Okay, euphemisms and wordplay aside, we’re simply reveling in the sweetness of Chiamaka and Shola’s love story, with both lovers being in the field of health and wellness. Contrary to what you might already be thinking, this story didn’t begin in a hospital, but a Mechanic workshop. Now, we bet your interest has been completely piqued. Well, not to worry, you’ll see how it all relates as the couple shared their love story with us. Just keep scrolling to enjoy it all as you also relish the beauty of their pre-wedding shoot.
Enjoy their pre-wedding photos and love story below.
Their love story according to Chiamaka:
I met Shola at the car repair shop (mechanic). I drove in and saw him standing by the entrance. When I saw him he looked cool and quiet..honestly that time I wasn’t interested in a relationship. I was all about my studies. However, I was starting to low key be open a little to possibilities since I was almost done with my studies.
I sent a wish to heaven lol saying, “I hope he is Igbo”… As my car was parked at the entrance behind Shola’s car I was kind of blocking his way. He offered to move the car. I thought he said he wants to drive my car, so I went, “you want to drive my car?” We laughed about that.
The mechanic guy kind of started the matchmaking by saying, “Oh, he’s Nigerian too!” Then, I asked which part he said “Yoruba”. After he was done, he drove off. I was looking at my side mirror, saw him stop at the end of the street then he reversed. He stopped beside my car and said, “can I have your number?”
I hesitated a little then gave it to him. On a normal day, I usually give out my number to be nice then block the person immediately. Because, as I said before, I eat and breathe my studies. I gave myself no time for anything else. But this time, I didn’t block him. Lol.
Along the line, I stopped talking to him. One day, he drove past my house and sent a picture saying, “I came around your side today for some errands.” Lol. Then we had the same clinical rotation at the same hospital. I saw him with the white coat and I was like, Ok! Let’s start talking to this guy again. I’m telling you, he was looking soo good in that coat! 😂
I later found out he requested to come over to the same unit as I was, just so he could see me. Well, the rest they say…is history! 😅
Here’s how Shola shares their love story:
I met this beauty at the mechanic shop. My car was just done getting fixed when she pulled up and blocked me in. I offered to help reverse her car out and she declined and she said she got it. I just locked up and got into my car and left.
I got to a stop sign and while looking at my rearview mirror, I gingered my mind, body and soul. 😂 I told myself what’s the worst that could happen? Another No. I made the fastest U-turn of my life, asked for her number and she gave it to me with a smile.
As fate will have it, we were in the same hospital for one of our clinical rotations when I was pursuing my doctorate degree and she was pursuing her nursing license. Now here we are!
