Today, we’ve got their pre-wedding photos to drool over and it’s cuteness overdose! Their hearty smiles and sweet chemistry in each frame have us blushing hard.

Their love story as shared by Chinenye:
As a huge fan of Johnny Drille, I saw he was a guest artiste at The “Young and Free” conference organized by Celebration Church in 2021. At the time, I was leaving a terrible relationship and wasn’t even prepared for anyone yet. To ease my mind, I decided to go see a Fave artiste perform that evening after work. As an IG sweet girl who is always on her InstaStories and who loves to share updates, I made videos of the event and posted them for my IG Fam to catch up.
I woke up the following morning to a stranger’s like on all my photos and a message in the DM saying “Oh you came? “ I was surprised at this question because this was hours after and I had moved on from it. Well, I reluctantly replied and we bonded over happenings that took place at the event including the category I belonged to when Singles and people in relationships were asked to either stand or sit 🤣. Of course, I told him where I fell and his response was “We’ve found you”.
I wasn’t ready for anything at all that year despite him being so intentional about us… So we maintained a friendship up until the next year when we started our love journey. It’s been an amazing ride filled with so much fun, love, goofiness, sacrifice, care and everything in between; he was such a sweet soul. Fast forward to May this year, he popped the question and I gave him a definite YES!
