Naima and Akin are on a forever journey and how it began has us excited. But before we share, don’t you just find love funny sometimes? Because how does it take a prank to make you realise love had always been close? 😄
These lovebirds had a lot of mutual friends and they worked in the same industry. However, they never got a chance to meet. Not until valentines day in 2017 when Akin slid into Naima’s DM and she thought to pull a mischievous prank.
Today we get a glimpse of their beautiful love in their gorgeous photos and it’s the hearty smiles and goofiness for us. Their pre-wedding photos have us completely lovestruck and we’re totally rooting for them!
Enjoy their photos and love story below
Their love story as shared by Naima:
Akin and I had mutual friends in the creative industry, he’s a fashion photographer and filmmaker and I used to be a model but we barely had the opportunity to meet. We followed each other on Instagram but we never spoke although our mutual friends would always mention our names when having conversations.
One valentines day in 2017, I posted a photo on Instagram and surprisingly he slid in my DM and he asked if I was interested in spending valentines day with him. Although I knew I wasn’t in Abuja at the time, I said yes for bants, just to see what he had to say.
We made plans only for me to disappoint him on valentines day by telling him I was joking and I was out of town. Then I promised to make it up to him when I got back. The rest they say is history. Lol.
