Fate, the birthday cake answer & the surprise porridge…no, ring actually – Rahmat and Lateef’s hilariously soothing True Love Story!

Ramat and Lateef

Today’s True Love Story couple, Ramat and Lateef, have got such an interesting love and proposal story that will make you giggle.
The newly wed sweethearts who got married a few weeks ago in Lagos are just too cute.

You are every reason, every hope and every dream I’ve ever had 

Let’s tell you how fate brought them together:

Sometime in 2014, the bride, Ramat was going through a terrible period.

She was heart broken and had made up her mind to give herself some space before paying attention to any other man when Cupid’s arrow surprisingly hit her.

The happy bride narrated it thus

One
of my friends just learnt make up and she decided to use me for
practice. After the make up, I looked really nice. I was feeling like a fine
girl so I took pictures and uploaded one of the pictures as my BBM Display Picture. The love and positive reactions from my BBM contacts was just so overwhelming, all of them just started using me as their Display Picture. 

Hours later, one of my friends who used me as her DP pix, called me and said
Rahmat I have found a boyfriend for you oooo, and
I was like boyfriend ko, boyfriend ni, abeg
lemme.  

Some days later she pinged me again and said she was serious and I was like
you know I just got out of a bad relationship and I am still trying to get
over guys…but when she didn’t stop bugging me, I decided to satisfy her by letting her give
the boyfriend she had found for me, my contact details but I insisted that I wanted nothing more than a Platonic relationship.”

That’s how Lateef got my phone number and we got talking. We soon found out that we both worked around the same area in V.I so he came to visit me one noon. The day he visited, I was having one serious stomach pain but he was just so kind and nice and sweet and it took away the pain.

Then we became friends. 


After that, he kept asking me out and telling me how much he wanted me to be his woman, how he couldn’t sleep or think straight because of me, how I was his dream come true and how he couldn’t live without me, how my thoughts were always driving him crazy…but I was sha playing hard to get until I gave him an answer months later.


My pride told me it’s impossible, my last experience told me it was risky, but my heart pushed me into giving him a try.

I accepted to be his woman on his birthday that year and I said it through a cake that I sent him…I was trying to do like one romantic
person. 

So that was our beautiful relationship began. 

We became each other’s number one gist partner, we would gist over everything no matter how minute, we would make each other laugh and just the thought of him brought me joy!

We were not perfect cos we’re human and we’re flawed, but we were perfect together and that’s all that matters.

He proposed months later, October 2015 to be precise.

He did in a romantic way by showing up at her place of work.

“That day I was craving for yam porridge. So in my playful way, I let everyone know that I wanted Porridge…I was still craving for the porridge when he showed up behind me.

He tapped me and when I saw him, I was like ‘dude you didn’t tell you were coming nah. He smiled and said I
got you something…my mouth started watering already cos I was so sure that the something he said got me was porridge. In my mind, I was like this boy just always knows how to surprise me…he wasn’t carrying anything so I expected him to say “let’s go and get the something from the car”..but nah.

Lo and behold, that is how he brought out a small red box and asked me to marry him.

Oh not porridge, I muttered.

Fortunately for me, my colleagues were out at that period so there was no commotion or all those paparazzi…I let him finish his speech and when he did, I accepted the ring.

I didn’t scream, run away, fall on the ground, faint or laugh or burst into tears when he slipped the ring into my finger like some ladies will, I just acted normal.

But after he left…hehe, I became hyper-high.

I started flaunting the ring and showing everyone that I was engaged.

I was super glad.


So, that’s how the wedding plans started. We had our family introduction, court wedding, Nikhai/Engagement and wedding reception!!!

    1. I agree. It was longer than 15seconds though. I though instagram videos were only for 15seconds, this was almost 60 seconds.

    2. But why are those alagas like that. I was at a wedding like that last month and that's how they told the bride to touch her husbands generator, she was forced to, while he was also forced to place hands on her oranges and then they asked them to pray for reach other. maybe it is yoruba tradition but it was somehow to me.

    3. Please i need answers. What was going in the picture with this caption "God is keeping me alive but you are keeping me in love." Don't tell me it I what I am thinking *wide grin*

    1. Haba two is too small nah, atleast 4 is okay. Nigerian women are fertile, why would any one want to have less than four kids biko?

  1. Awwwwww in kemi filani's voice. Congratulations dearie. Ramat otolaryngology my friend is now married. Lucky you

  2. Nawa o. All these RUN babe's don Wed finish, wetin I dey wait for. I hear say one pelumi Dada wan Wed too. Everybody just day Wed. Make I go find man wey I go drag go altar abeg.

  3. Asabi Ramat Olorin. Talkative of this century. I am truly happy for you. We never used to be friends back in school, wed despise each other even up to now but I am truly happy for you. Congrats.

  4. I didn't scream, run away, fall on the ground, faint or laugh or burst into tears when he slipped the ring into my finger like some ladies will, I just acted normal.

    But after he left…hehe, I became hyper-high.

    I started flaunting the ring and showing everyone that I was engaged.

    Hehehe i can totally relate baje. It happened to me too when i got engaged last year November. My wedding is in three weeks.

  5. Another pregnant bride. All is well. Their marriage will last forever and know no sorrows. May it not be like that of Eniola Kasham who shut down the Internet with her wedding but now can't save her home from collapsing. And I know kemi will not give somebody the gist because they are friends. All his photos have been removed from her instagram account
