How We Met
By Tobi and Ebuka:
We first met in April 2016 at a conference in the United Kingdom, where we both lived at the time. It was a casual meeting and there was no follow-up afterwards. We both moved back to Nigeria in 2017 and started off as passive friends.
Tobi: I found him really obnoxious.
Ebuka: I thought she was a snub and too full of herself, but I kept inviting her out because there was something intriguing about her presence and perspectives.
Tobi: I always turned him down politely because I just didn’t see the point of his invites and I was in a relationship at the time.
Ebuka: At some point, I gave up on her and we both moved on. Over a year later, we decided to rekindle our lost or “never happened” friendship. I guess it was fate this time as we were both single. We became really good platonic friends.
Tobi: Months went by and we slowly became peas in a pod, we did everything together and really enjoyed spending time with each other. It was a no-brainer that we became fond of us. So, we decided to take it to the next level, we became an item.
Tobi: Fast forward to our anniversary day. He took me out for dinner and tricked me into wearing the dress I initially planned to wear in Morocco for my birthday (which did not happen due to the lockdown restrictions).
Ebuka: She was really clueless, she thought it was one of our beautiful dates. I was nervous and excited all at once. What a feeling!
Tobi: On arrival to dinner, I noticed he had shut down the whole of the restaurant for us, I thought it was lavish but loved it! Then, he excused himself to pick a call. I was on my phone waiting for him to get back when he sent a bouquet of roses and a violinist over to me and asked me to come over to where the magic happened.
Ebuka: I asked her to be my wife and she gave me a resounding YES! I’m a lucky man.
Tobi: We get to do life together regardless of its challenges. For this, we are super grateful to God!
