Beautiful. Life has been beautiful, good and fun
because you are happy with someone you really love and looking forward
to share the rest of your life with. It makes it interesting because
it’s a long journey.
When you met your husband, how did you know he was Mr. Right?
I think it started when I came back. My head was all over the place and
I wasn’t in the mood for any kind of relationship. It eventually got to
a point that I told God I was ready. It was like a journey for me at
one time and I did not want to be in that space. I told God that I
wanted to be in a serious relationship now. It was like a conversation
between God and I. He said okay, are you ready, and I replied Him in the
affirmative. It’s funny. It wasn’t like I was looking for a husband but
I was ready to be in a serious relationship and have a courtship. That
was why I said you have to be in a mental state because it is not good
for you to end up dating the wrong person. I met him. Initially we
didn’t have the mindset to date. It started with a business
arrangement. He said he had an idea that could help my career. Of
course he got my attention and we started seeing. I think it was the
third, fourth meeting we started adjusting. He asked me out on my
birthday and we dated for a year
When did you make up your mind to accept him?
was in the course of the journey that I started realising he was all I
wanted in a man and I knew in my spirit. You just know these things and
it just happened. He must have known earlier that I dug him, but he was
just waiting for a special moment to make it happen where I will always
remember. Maybe that was why he decided to tell me on my birthday.
Why did you take your wedding abroad?
my wedding taking place in Nigeria? It would be a carnival and I didn’t
want a carnival for my wedding. He didn’t want that too. We are very
alike and we wanted something really special. It was not that we
couldn’t do it here, but we had travelled wide a lot during the course
of our relationship and we really wanted something special for ourselves
and our families. We weren’t thinking about the people, it was about us
trying to make that moment special. It wasn’t what we decided, we also
asked God. It was not like we chose where to get married. It was
something spiritual for us to do and God also confirmed to us that we
should go there and get married.
How did you receive the confirmation?
the wedding arrangement in Nigeria, we were thinking on where to do it,
either in Nigeria or elsewhere. So we were thinking of Paris, but we
wanted to be sure and we needed a confirmation on where to go. It was
like you wanted something and you also needed a confirmation because it
is going to take a lot. All the people that went came back safely. My
husband and I met with the chairman of an airline. He donated a plane to
move all our guests. What better confirmation do you need than that?
Your wedding took place abroad. Are you guys also planning to raise your kids in Nigeria or abroad?
The world is becoming global; it’s going to be both Nigeria and abroad.
Have you guys decided on the numbers of kids to have?
Am I supposed to tell you that?
Okay. As many as possible.
When will you start because I expect you to have been pregnant by now?
Are you God that is going to decide on that? This kind of thing, you don’t decide it yourself.
How do you manage to look cute?
a point after my marriage, I discovered that I had added weight, but I
had to shake it up. I engaged in some exercises, watched what I ate and
also cut down on so many things. I also cook. I like cooking.
Do you consider having a food outlet?
don’t know about that. I just love cooking because I love to try new
things and my cooking is fun. It is like inventing things. You come out
with your recipe and people’s recipe and adjust to the things that work
