I was in Lagos for a month in January 2016 and I attended a traditional engagement. I returned back to The UK and the bride called me that a friend of her husband saw my picture and he asked If we could swipe numbers and that was it. He lives in America and I live in the UK. So since the 8th of February, we only had phone conversations. He was due to travel to Nigeria in May so we had to make that a meeting point. He planned to do a stopover in Paris since he has never been there and wanted to explore the city. He asked if I could join him and I said yes. Paris was so much fun that he decided to return back to London with me for a couple of more days before travelling to Nigeria.
I went to my boy’s house as he just got back from Nigeria from his traditional engagement. A group of us met up at his house to look through his wedding pictures and that’s when I saw Folake. I just had to ask who she was and if I had a shot with her. It just so happened she was single. I was given her number with her permission and that’s how it started on the 8th of February 2017. Since Folake and I lived in different countries, I had to think quickly how we could meet. I was due to travel to Nigeria in May so I asked if she would be okay travelling to Paris as our first official meeting as I really wanted to explore Paris with her and she agreed. After talking on the phone for a few months, we met in Paris May 2016 then I travelled back to London with her.

When I met her in Paris, I knew I was going to marry her! Six months after we met in Paris, I started shopping for rings (never been here before I didn’t know what I was looking for). I read articles on how much an engagement should be based on a man’s salary. I asked for her input on what type or shape she wanted her ring to look like. So, I integrated her input, the articles, and mine and when I saw the ring I knew this was going to be it.
