A Nigerian couple, Olawumi and Tobi tied the knot last weekend in a civil wedding and the journey to the beginning of their love story is quite an interesting one.
According to the posts of the couple shared by BELLANAIJJA Weddings, the couple’s journey together started through a post that Olawumi shared on her Instagram, she revealed that Tobi watched her story and complimented her saying, “You are so cool” to which she responded with a “Thanks”.
Tobby added that he wanted to apply for the position of her friend. That is when she jokingly told him to send an email applying for the position using the link in her Instagram bio. Olawumi says she didn’t expect him to send the application but he did and that caught her attention.
In the Email, he noted that he felt he had the qualifications to become Olawumi’s best Paddy (friend). It read,
Olawumi says that after receiving Tobi’s email, she remembers telling her friend about it, “I shouted to my friend @Jibike “I have found my husband”, so she didn’t take me seriously but look where we are today” Her friend doubted for good reason, knew she dating already.
When Tobi received a reply, he went ahead to list the attributes that made Olawumi and him compatible as friends, and that is how their beautiful journey began.
Although he tried, according to Ola, he got it wrong but his effort earned him a position as a friend.
Olawumi also shares that after they became friends, she used to share stories about her boyfriends with him, where she was going and he used to patiently listen all the time and even tell her what to do but she had no idea that he was setting a trap for her.
“I wouldn’t choose anyone else to do life with, you be my Guyest Guy,” Olawumi concluded her post about how they met.
Well, do not be afraid to send an email, you just may be meeting the love of your life.
