How We Met
By The Bride; Yewande
We met one day while I was strolling out of school with my sister. He drove past us, reversed and blocked us from moving. He got down, said hi but I just walked away. He became friends with my sister eventually, one day she asked me to drop something at her “friend’s place”. When I saw him, he laughed and said “after all your shakara, you are here” and we went from there.

From the moment I saw her, I just knew that I couldn’t stay away. We were in a relationship for a year and I just knew, I had to make Yewande mine in the sight of God and man. I had planned the whole proposal in my head one night when I visited her; I got to her house that night and took one of her rings to get her ring size. I explored jewelers for a while before picking the perfect ring.
I kept waiting for the perfect time to propose and eventually, In November, Dj Xclusive’s party was coming up and I asked him and Dotun Cool FM to help me with my proposal. We decided that his all white party would be the perfect surprise engagement and honestly I was so nervous because I knew how crowded it would be but I got tired of waiting with the ring and I was about to burst with anticipation.
At the party, we were having fun until I got on one knee and immediately the music stopped. Dotun started hyping the whole proposal which we planned but it made me more nervous. Still on my knee, I asked her to marry me and she said yes. Words couldn’t begin to express my relief and people cheered.
