On Febuary 14, 2016 (Valentine’s day) which happened to be a Sunday, I went to church and was making plans to attend the “Youth’s beach party” organized in church with Chi. That evening, I was helping out my mum to get ready for Couples night out (also organized by the church) when I was informed that Chi was waiting outside for me. With the thought that we were going for the church programme, I got into the car and we began our journey. However, I noticed that he drove past the location but I didn’t really pay much attention to it. I figured he wanted to get something and we’ll just go back afterwards. All this while, Ololufe by Flavour & Chidinma was playing on repeat and my playful self was just singing along.
Then we got to a recreation centre and most people were in red (standard Valentine uniform at least in Nigeria). I was already thinking of food to buy cause I was hungry but that was when Mr. wanted to be giving me epistle…(lovely epistle sha). He started talking about the first time he saw me and how he was attracted to me; then went further to mention how he would want me to be the mother of his children and I’m there thinking, “Valentine spirit is really working in le boo today”. As a foodie that I am, all this talk wasn’t really my priority, I simply needed food! So, I reached out to the back seat to get my hand bag and by the time I turned, I met with a ring! Chi was just there holding the ring with a wide grin. It felt like the world stopped rotating in that second; I mean…I was beyond shocked! Anyway, he asked me to be his wife and, I gladly said YES!!! All that hunger totally vanished! I just kept staring at my fingers for like the longest time. I probably may have wanted a more dramatic proposal with friends around, but in that moment, I knew all that did not matter, in fact, it was the best proposal.
Come 2017 I would be saying I DO to the love of my life, My Chi…
