After years of being rejected by women due to his height, Kwoyela Derick, a 59-year-old teacher from Bali Nyonga in Cameroon’s Northwest Region, has finally found a life partner.
Derick, popularly known as DK, met Kahboh Patience, 28, in January 2022 and they began dating.
The teacher expressed his love for Patience and his desire for her to become the mother of his children in an interview with MMI.
“Her character attracted me. She is perfect because she gives me maximum respect and she is God fearing too.” He said.
His relationship with Kahboh Patience has received a lot of criticism from naysayers.
“One of our biggest obstacles was when we were planning to get married. Her friends and some people close to her were complaining and asking why she is getting married to short man like me.
“I have promised to take good care of my wife. I want our story to be an inspiration to everyone, including those who have lost hope in love. There is a chance and someone special for us all,” he said.
However, despite the objections, their traditional wedding has been fixed for April 6, 2025, in Bali Nyonga, while the white wedding ceremony will take place on April 8 in Bamenda.
