On the 21st of November, Temitope and Olawale said “I DO” at a beautiful celebration of love and family. The beautiful bride shared the romantic story of their journey to the aisle:
I would say “destiny” brought us together as the story I’m about to tell defines the word “destiny”.
Olawale had been my secret admirer since 2007 after he saw me walk past the football pitch in Lagos State University College of Medicine. He was a medical student and I had gone to visit my cousin. According to him, he had asked his friends if they knew me and fortunately for him, one of them happened to be my neighbor which made him think he had won a jackpot. “laugh out loud”. So many years passed during which he tried reaching me through his friend, Facebook, phone calls, yahoo messenger, BBM, but I wasn’t available.
Fast forward to 2010, Olawale posted an Italian statement “tu se tutta la mi a vita” as his personal message on BBM. I had a translator on my phone which I downloaded, because I always wanted to learn foreign languages. The statement means “you are all my life”. I decided to ask him who was his life not because I was interested in knowing, but because I wanted him to think I understood italian, “Laugh out loud”. Anyway the day Olawale got that message from me, asking him who was his life, was one of the happiest and most shocking days of his life, as that was the first time I ever messaged him.
Apparently, his life was AC Milan football club as he’s a very big fan. Not anymore though, as I’m now his whole life. He was a happy man as I was his Italian teacher for the day. He seized that opportunity to ask if he could get me a gift for teaching him Italian which I rejected, but after so much persuasion I accepted and he got the opportunity to meet me in person where our love journey started. We started dating in 2011 and we have brought so much joy to each other. In 2013, Olawale asked me to be his wife and here we are. We couldn’t have asked for more.
String My Naija Wedding will like to wish the happy couple marital bliss.
