Happy Monday, Kfbers, we trust you had a fab. weekend like we did!
Biola and Tunde are our couple of the week. They got married on Saturday, August 15 and yes, they have got an ah-mazing story.
How we met (by the bride)
First I am grateful to God for the gift of Babatunde – my friend, gist partner, nigga, lamba mate , confidante, adviser and love.
We met at a friend parlour birthday party in 2012, which happened to be children’s day. Honestly I didn’t want to attend the party because it was on a Sunday coupled with the fact that rain fell but my friends kept calling, so I had to get up from bed.
When I got to the party, Schatz (it’s a German pet name I gave him) was already there with his friends, they were all seated and gisting. So when I walked in he noticed me then sent the birthday girl’s niece to come get my number promising to pay her *smh*. So the little girl came to relay the message. But you know how we ladies are, that was when I started shakara, I danced with other guys at d party but I didn’t dance with him . Then the party shifted to a bar but it was already getting late so I left almost immediately. As Schatz saw me leaving, he ran after me and I gave him my pin.
He was always buzzing me but I didn’t give him attention, I was replying his messages with ‘lol’ , amidst the ‘lol’ I realized he’s actually a cool guy, so I decided to give us a trial..
On the 14th of February 2014, he asked me to be his wife.
We have had our fair share of arguments, quarrels, (you don’t even want to know) and generally not so good times, but we have come out of each other stronger and I have never for once second faulted my decisions to be with him.
Schatz, I want you to know I really appreciate our friendship, fights, above all love. Folahanmi ‘temi’ nikan thanks for tolerating me because I can be handful.
Tunde proposed to Biola on valentine’s day, last year at the prestigious Radisson Blu Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Proposal story (by Tunde)
Of course Proposing on Feb 14 is cliche, so I had to make sure
this was memorable for her since thats what I planned to do. Just around
Christmas I had her look at some rings online under the guise that my
friend was looking for a ring to propose to his wife and i need her to
pick what she thinks is the perfect proposal ring ( of course she only
fell for the scam because she knew the said friend was really looking
for a ring to propose with).
I also had a genius programmer friend of mine develop an app that
will pop the question on her phone once i trigger it with a text from
mine ( as a baddo i cant shout let the phone do all the work*wink*) Next
I surmounted the task of installing the app on her phone without her
knowledge which was not an easy task trust me (if u doubt me, try taking
your babe phone from her for 30 minutes with no excuse).
On February 14, 2014, we planned to have dinner with some friends
and family. We got to the restaurant late,the place was quite crowded
and the service was poor on that day,Food arrived late, waiters that
were meant to form a train in other to brace up my liver were too busy.
Just before midnight when I was sure she had enjoyed what she thought
was our planned Valentine dinner, I stood up pretended as if i was going
to the toilet and texted her to initiate the app on her phone.
As she was reading those four word questions displayed on her
phone with the option yes or no, I got on my knees with the ring she
picked unknowingly in my right hand( I was feeling like a silver knight .. Lol).
When she realized what was happening, shawty left me on my knees ran like 100 miles in the restaurant screaming “Jesus !Jesus!its a lie! .When all eyes was getting on us, she came back changing the lyrics to YES YESSS YESSS YESSSSSSSSS.
When she pressed the yes button on her phone, it automatically
sent text messages to some of her close friends numbers I already
installed in the app relaying the news
Proposal story (by Biola)
Well, he already said it all .. Lol .. You can hardly catch me
unaware .. I am always at alert but he succeeded in keeping this from
me. The app installation was very tricky , I didn’t even suspect a thing
because he knows I am obsessed with my phone and how he got my friends
numbers still baffles me.
When d text came in I thought he was calling me because he used d
same tune as his caller tune so I was like (guy y are u calling me, am
right beside u) not until I checked d phone, I don’t know what lifted me
out of my seat as I ran away from the table Cus proposal was d very
last thing on my mind dat night.. Lol.. I left him kneeling down o and
of course .. I SAID YESSSSSS
