Here’s how they met:
We connected via social media. We had exchanged a number of chats on the platform and had it became a routine that we would always chat on most evenings depending on work schedules. Three weeks later, I DM’d her at about 9 pm requesting for her number and in less than 1 minute of receiving her number, I called, I couldn’t play it cool, and she was pleasantly surprised.- Uche recalls
We spoke for hours on the phone, and I was assigned the important task of planning “our first date” by the end of this conversation. On this day, I arrived at the train station to meet My Queen with a pack of chin-chin snack named “Tabitha’s chin-chin”, this definitely was an excellent ice breaker. The fun date was a mix of a visit to the wildlife park, a game of minigolf, drinks and dinner.
When it was time to pop the big question, here’s how Uche went about it:
Fast-forward to December 2018, we travelled to Las Vegas to celebrate our birthdays. Prior to that trip, I had gotten a ring she had hinted she liked and received her mum’s blessing. It was indeed a challenging task travelling with the engagement ring in my hand luggage and acting normally without exposing my plans.
I actually wrote a note which I placed in the ring box to alert airport security of my intentions and the discreet nature of my plans. 3 days into our Vegas trip, we had planned a tour of the Grand Canyon. While on the trip, I found the perfect moment and asked “My Queen” to walk with me on this journey of life. I can’t wait to spend forever with My Queen Tabitha, she is all I prayed for and I thank God for blessing us with each other.
