A True Love Story: A meeting at OAU and the Valentine night – Tola & Wale

Whatever he had found, made him a better person. Maybe that’s what love is, finding the person who brings out the best in you ……. .

Love is ageless!
From the beginning of time, love had existed and continues to grow
through time. Two people meet,fall in love and decide to live together
forever. How magical!
We present to you the oldies inspired pre-wedding photos of Tola and Wale in Lagos.
More beautiful is the story of the couple’s journey from ‘hello’ as they prepare to say ‘I DO’. Enjoy!

“Our story began in February 2006 at Obafemi Awolowo University
(OAU), Ile- Ife. We were both students at the time; we met at one of the
most popular lecture theatres called ODLT in OAU. WALE was a student of
Electronics and Electrical Engineering while TOLA was studying
Pharmacy”, says the groom-to-be, Wale.
On that faithful evening, WALE was at the lecture theatre waiting to
receive lectures while TOLA was there to read. The lecturer (Prof.
Adegboyega) came in and one thing he detests is to have students who
were not part of the class to be in attendance, he would chase such
students out and seize any of their belongings he could lay his hands
on.  WALE knew already that TOLA would be in trouble if she remained in
the lecture room so he quickly hinted her she had to leave the lecture
room before she got caught. However, that pretty short lecture room
incident has changed our lives!
Their friendship officially kicked off on Valentine’s night, WALE was
walking along TOLA’s hostel when he met her best friend ADEOLA. She
invited him to the room they shared and that’s how the initial kick off
WALE met and mingled with all of TOLA‘s friends like he had known
them for years (they all assume he was the “boyfriend” anyways) all of
this time, TOLA too got  to know WALE better in this assumed “boyfriend”
, “girlfriend” period. Even though it wasn’t until several months after
that TOLA officially agreed to a date; she can sure look back now and
cherish the memories from that St. Valentine’s Day, and for WALE the
wait was definitely worth it!
‘We are excited to start our lives together as the countdown begins!’ says Wale.

I love you. You annoy me more than I ever thought possible, but… I want to spend every irritating minute with you
I love you right up to the moon — and back.
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.
Cheers to you for making a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else.
You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said
have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.”
I  love you not because of anything you have, but because of something that I feel when I’m near you.

Just when I think that it is impossible to love you any more, you prove me wrong.
There are only two times that I want to be with you – Now and Forever.
God, I’ve seen like a million people today and all I can think of is how I can’t wait to get home to see you!
The wisest decision I made in my life is choosing you,
I have made the right choice.

There are a million ways I can say that I love you. I don’t know which one to pick. All I know is that I love you tons and tons!

You are my finest gift of God! I love you my hero!
The love that you have for me, has transformed my black and white
life into something so beautiful and colorful. Thank you so much for
coming into my life.


For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
You are there when I feel sad,
You are there when my mood is bad,
You always support me in life,
You are the only reason why I survive,
Love you!
All the words in the world would also fail to describe what we share
between us. All I can say is, always love me the same way forever. I
love you.
I cannot express my feelings for you,
I know it is not something new,
But, want to revive my love for you,
Coz people like you are one in few,
Love you honey!

I am going to steal away the letter U from the alphabets,
because it belongs to me.
I LOVE YOU my dear!

I wish there was nothing else in the world to do except for losing
myself in your eyes. I could continue doing that for the rest of my
lifetime. I love you.
God has given me a wonderful gift, he has made you mine.
I always thank him for this valuable gift in my life.
Love you my honey!
