Their love story according to Seun:
It happened that I was to attend a friend turn brother’s wedding at Ibadan, dated 5th of August 2017. I sighted her on her arrival at the hotel we were meant to stay. So I called my friend’s attention (Jide) to the caramel (Mayomikun). I told him, “that will be one of the bride’s friends…” I didn’t see her again that night and didn’t get to talk to her. The next day happened to be the engagement day. I was talking to other ladies since I didn’t see her, trying to shoot my shot on them. I approached the first one and we got acquainted. Later on, I was told she is married with 2 kids! I took to my heels, facing the next “candidate” 😂
I approached another and we got talking, laughing, along the line, lo and behold I saw my Mayomikun again. This brain of mine did a manual reset and left the one I was talking to. So, I started stalking her not knowing that my right-hand friend already got her number because he was among the groomsmen and she was among the bridesmaids. I told him that I like her and will like to have a serious talk with her.
Each time I tried to talk to her, I always met her with one guy or the other trying to talk as well. I felt like I was in an Olympic sports competition. Feeling down that someone got there before me, but something within me said go for her and don’t relent. I waited for a free and clear road to make my own gentle move. I saw her walking towards where I was sitted and I stood up to meet her halfway. Though she wasn’t coming to meet me, when I noticed she was alone, I didn’t let that chance slip!
I went, “Hello beautiful, the name is Seun and you are ?..” Despite the fact that I knew her name. She replied and we made small talk. I asked to exchange contacts with her. After the engagement program, we got talking that night till 3 AM. We had to discharge each other to go to our different rooms. Imagine me calling her to tell her I was in my room and asked if she was inside as well 🤦🏾♂️😂. We spoke for a while and I sent a text to seal the night.
The next day was the wedding. I was chilling at the pool of the hotel, and the moment I sighted her taking pictures with the couple, I jumped out of the pool to walk past her just to steal a glance…lol. No one should call me a woman wrapper please.😭 I went straight to my room to wear my Aso Ebi so as to meet up and make sure nobody clinched to her. I got to the venue and resumed my “stalking”. When I noticed her without anyone, I asked if we could take a walk. So we did, and had a little chat and were together for the rest of the event…
Then it was time to depart and we had to drop them at her friend’s place. I wasn’t cool about the departure but loved how it ended. I ended up carrying her like a baby and stole a kiss before leaving… From 2017 till date, we’re still rocking each other’s worlds. Despite the fact that we had a distance barrier, we stuck together. Now we have forever to go in the journey of love! ❤️
