It all started in my dad’s church many years ago. He and his family
members joined our church newly. He knew how to play the talking drum
while I could sing, so we were both in the choir but we didn’t use to
talk to each other.
On our church anniversary day, he walked up to me and asked for my phone
number. I immediately gave it to him without hesitation and we started
communicating from that day. I believe we can all remember those good
old days of MTN extra cool. It was fun
because he taught me how to love because I never knew how to love before he came into my life. He is my first and last love.
I started developing feelings for him till I fell head over heels in
love with him. Then he travelled back to kano and I was afraid he won’t
come back. As God would have it, he came back and our love continued.
Along the line, we faced several challenges and oppositions.
One fateful Sunday evening, my parents sent my elder sister Mrs Bukola
Davies, Adepemi and Blessing Adegorite to go and scare him to stop
dating me. And at this time, his mother and elder sister were in Lagos
to visit his elderly brother, (Prophet R.O Ikotun). Thank God his
brother was not at home because it would have been a different story
that day. But His elder sister showed them hell and their plans failed.
My parents gave me the beating of my life that same night I fainted and
all my body were full of marks and stain of blood but to no avail.
To the glory of God, admist all the oppositions, we sailed through and here we are today.
There’s this common saying that “Man proposes and God disposes”. It can
also be the other way round. God can propose and man may try all he can
to dispose it but will always fail. Whatever God has destined to be
would be no matter the amount of stones thrown at it.
