A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Gospel singer Benita Okojie and her lover, Wale Adeyina were engaged and set to walk down the aisle (HERE).
Their Love and proposal story as told to BN!
We attended the same university – Redeemers University.
We started out as friends and after we graduated, he wanted us to be
more than friends. I prayed and asked my mum for her counsel and I felt a
certain peace so I consented and I Thank God for what we share and how
far we’ve come.
Olawale and my sister Bella
are very good friends and business partners which is one of the things
that drew me to him because my sister and I are very close. Over the
years, in the course of our relationship, both of them have been able to
team up and surprise me on several occasions and it can be annoying
because together they pull great surprises for me and I never have the
slightest clue beforehand.
So I knew he would also get my sister
involved when he was ready to pop the question.Anyway, one morning, The Nerd
(as I like to call him) called me and we gisted as usual, after we did
he asked to speak with my sister under the guise of work related stuff.
He said she needed to go to the office to turn in a client’s job as soon
as possible. I had no idea they had planned to go to the ring store.
After their conversation, we made plans to go and see a movie.I
went to get ready and we had agreed that he would pick me up at 12 pm.
when it was 12, there was no sign of him. 1pm passed, then 2pm… he still
hadn’t come. I called to ask him why he was taking long. He apologized
and said he had to get a job done for a client but he was on his way.
When he came home, he came with my sister and she was forming vexing,
that they didn’t open the gate early. It was part of her script. Lol.I
was so concerned with us getting to the movies early to watch a
particular movie that I didn’t notice anything strange. I
went to get
something outside and when I came back to the living room, I saw him
kneeling with a box. I just started screaming and running round the
house. I don’t remember anything he said. My mum had to ask me to “give him an answer o”. It’s one day I will not forget in a hurry.
