Their love story as told by Jdess:

On the 22nd of April 2018, I was on my way back from Abuja to Lagos. A trip I made because I needed to go clear my head from issues about a relationship that was already sinking. A friend asked me to join her for a relative’s wedding and I did.

We had a good time, played and prayed… On my way back, we were not able to get on the same flight just like when we were making the I got on the flight and it was free sitting. I quickly carefully decided where I want to sit as I wouldn’t want to be near someone who will make me uncomfortable.

On my right was a dark-skinned fine-looking young man. I thought he looked put together and won’t bother me in any way and that was like the first seat available so I took a seat… He spoke to me in a few minutes and I pretended I didn’t hear him… In my mind, I was like, “ he may want to have a conversation Joy but wait for him to try again so you’re sure.”

He tried again and this time I responded and we got talking about Nigeria and other stuff. We talked and I thought we really connected and on getting off he asked for my stage name. I told him while I pinching myself in my head, asking if that’s all he would ask of and why he is not asking for my number.

He told me he was going to find me and doubted it. Because as far as I knew, he had just my stage name and might not be able to spell correctly when he’s searching for it. I got home and counted it as one of those happenstances where you meet people you may never ever see again in your lifetime.

Hours after, and thoughts of the fine young man wouldn’t fade away. So I decided to look for him on all social media platforms by his first name… Onyeka. I searched but couldn’t find him of course. I prayed and told God that if what I was feeling was real and meant to be, he should give me a sign by helping him find me.

Now, let’s check out Onyeka as he also gets geared for the big moment…

Fast forward to 6 weeks later, on the 2ndof June when I was randomly looking through my Facebook messenger and saw a message from him. I jumped like I just won a million bucks… I had never been so excited over nothing. We got chatting and talking for hours and there was a lot of getting to know each other.

…And two shall become one! 🤭

Moments of wondering why he wouldn’t talk to me as much as I wanted… Up until when we had our first meeting and first date. I think I knew he was the one for me before he did. I still have butterflies for Onyeka.

He is everything I’ve ever prayed for. He is the most beautiful man I know and I’m grateful to God. If I never believed in love, he has made me a strong believer! True love really does exist!

Now, they set sail into forever!

Let the fun and games begin!
