Mojoyinola & Tolulope Akinkoye's Story
How did you meet your partner?
Tolu: We attended the same primary school, but the flame began on my birthday party. My attraction to him was his straight up sincerity and honestly I was love struck. It was love at first sight for me.
Mojoyin: I met Tolu on the 5th of Feb 1999, at her birthday party. I was invited by her brother, Femi. She was the celebrant so automatically all the attention was on her and she was the best dancer in the room, that was until I showed up at the party. I was wowed by her and thought she was a beautiful, gorgeous, fun loving and firm young girl. I would say it was love at first sight; especially for her though, because on the day we met, she had already called my NITEL land phone like 5 times before I got home that night, even my mum was like one tolu has called several times asking to speak to you.
How did you guys start dating?
The dating wasn’t easy oh. After I met her at the party we got talking, and talking and talking, We became best friends and still are, we really liked each other but whenever I asked her the question "Will you go out with me? " she always declined. So it was more or less like an unofficial relationship. At certain times, she would get so angry if she heard I was talking to another girl. I keep telling myself "when I asked you out, you dulled me, so where is all of this coming from?" . Eventually, after like a year plus of talking everyday, she finally accepted me officially.
How did you make up after fights?
Tolu: We brush whatever issues off and move on like nothing happened.
Mojoyin: when we have issues or fights ( which is normal anyways) Well na to beg first na. She is very forgiving now, but before ehn hmmmmmm....let me not comment.
How soon after the engagement did preparations begin?
Tolu: The preparations began before the engagement. It was very exciting and I enjoyed every bit of it. I had a lot of assistance so it was as nerve racking as I thought it was going to be.
Mojoyin: Well, we got engaged October 11, the wedding ideas commenced immediately but the wedding preparations proper commenced in January the following year .It was very stress free contrary to general belief. sometimes, people over hype these things. Also pray that you are financially empowered and you both know what you want and you two can agree, then you should be sorted.
How did it feel when you finally said “I do” to your soul mate?
Tolu: We had been together for some years and yet it felt very different. I felt true joy in my spirit.
Mojoyin: It was a long dream I had been waiting for come to reality. A few days after the wedding, we went off to the beautiful city of Dubai for our honey moon. It was 10 wonderful days of bliss.
How is life after the honeymoon?
Tolu: Marriage is beautiful. I have not regretted my decision to marry my husband.
Mojoyin: Life has been wonderful and challenging as expected, but we thank God, for he's been our rock guiding us step by step all through.
