OlaOlu, based in Nigeria met Fola, a Nigerian Nurse based in the U.K on Facebook sometime in July 2019 and they immediately hit it off.
Their conversation started with a comment on a Facebook post which quickly progressed into the DM. And the rest, as they say, IS HISTORY!
We caught up with the husband who made the post below on Facebook before he later introduced us to his wife:
It was Itodo’s birthday and as Getmeri’s ambassador I sent his number to the company to call and wish him a happy one. I shared his appreciation of the kind gesture on my timeline and next thing I know this Facebook friend commented that when will she get her own Getmeri call.
My first reaction was, kinni isolenu yí bayi? I couldn’t leave the comment unattended to because Getmeri’s image was at stake so I replied that she should dm me her number.
When she came inbox and dropped an international number, I was dismayed. International calls cost more and Getmeri nuh send me message reash this level. But she’s got this good sense of humour and I could feel she was hitting on me as well.
That very night in August, we chatted for about 5 hours till early in the morning. The flow was effortless.
So I finally get to marry a nurse as it is and the prophecy I gave myself that my future wife would walk into my DM herself just like my mum walked into my dad’s house is fulfilled.
Thanks to few friends that have been part of our journey. Started from the DM now we’re here.
What makes this particular Naija love story exciting is that they never met physically during the 3 months they dated.
The love bug and connection was strengthened through video calls on Whatsapp and Facebook, and after 3 months of online dating, Fola travelled to Naija to meet her Prince Charming and they got MARRIED!
Isn’t this an exciting love story?
