Juliet Musoke is visibly a smitten newlywed. Apart from her glow, she describes her husband’s traits with superlatives as, “extremely empathetic, loving, very caring and respectful and takes a mature approach to life. Most of all he is my friend.”
Mitchel Oliver Obi is equally awed by what he considers to be the best of luck in finding and tying the knot with Musoke whom the Nigerian family named Chioma.
“Chioma as we have named her is an amazing person, extremely humble and full of respect. She is someone that I can be very vulnerable around with. She is an amazing soul in and out and most importantly my confidant,” he adds.
The couple met in South Africa where they are both students at University of Witwatersrand.
“I first spotted her at Clearwater Mall in South Africa where I was having my watch repaired. I did not know how to approach her so I chose to use the colourful bangles on her wrist to start a conversation,” Obi relates. He asked for her number purportedly to help enable him get some of the bangles from her source. Although she was reluctant at first, she later gave in and the two started communicating.
“We spoke for a while then stopped for several months and when we spoke again, his question was “why are we not together?’ and it made me realise that we both wanted the same thing but just probably we were too fearful to accept it so for me that was it,” Musoke recalls.
Obi found so many things he loved about Musoke but most irresistible was the respect with which she treated him. “The way she humbles herself and how genuine her humility, is blew my mind. Even when there is a situation between us, she still understands that I am her man,” he shares. Musoke’s loving and respectful character also won over Obi’s mother’s heart almost instantly.
“It was actually a shock to me, it was like love at first sight between them and we got her blessings instantly,” he further recounts. Click to read more…
