they started dating 7 years ago to date!The soon-to-be groom, Samuel shared
their love story below:
My Queen and I met as very young year two (2) undergraduate students in
2008. I was a tutor among a few in a group with an unwavering zeal to
Well, I never noticed her in the department until she came to our
tutorial center – a dilapidated classroom block in one public primary
school in Ejirin road, Ijebu-Ode, Southwest Nigeria.
As God will have it, I was the tutor on roaster,
teaching my colleagues a particular topic in the Almighty Mathematics
for Economists 1.
After getting through with solutions to a few quantitative problems, she
told me (ko prime) – a slang which meant she doesn’t understand.
Immediately she said so, I picked a special interest in her. God so
good, She waited till the end of the tutorial session and fortunately,
my tutorial coordinator (Tunji Usman) whom was meant to walk her home
after the tutorial had another engagement,and was unable to. So, we
ended up walking home together.- Thank God he was unable to walk her
home, and thanks to him for inviting her to the tutorial.
One thing led to another, I offered a free but personal tutorial for her
in her apartment. She obliged. [Thank God, bless me!].We became very
good friends. We visited each other at our not so close houses. In 2009,
I told her there was a girl I love so much in our department but did
not know how to approach her. She offered to help me talk to the girl
and asked for her details, but I told her I would take care of it
myself. Few weeks later, I told her she was the girl. But she laughed it
off and tried to friend zone me.
When I realized our friendship has gotten so deep and couldn’t resist
the feelings I have for her, I gathered enough strength to ask her out
officially. Yay! May 20th, 2009, we were in my apartment studying when I
went on my knees to ask her out officially.
She couldn’t believe it. A shiver went down from her head to toe! And
when she recovered from my straight-to the point wooing, all she could
respond was- “You are not serious. I don’t know what to say.” Ever since
we started dating, we had several challenges, and broke up a few times,
but whatever is divinely orchestrated will abide. We are the
faithfulness of God! We are like a tree planted by the rivers water,
which bringeth forth its fruit in its season and whatsoever we do shall
