A Nigerian lady identified as Taiwo Abisola Adekunle has narrated how she fell in love and married a reserved ex-classmate.
She revealed that her husband named Wale attended the same secondary school with her and their relationship back then was only platonic.
In a write-up she shared with Legit, Taiwo who served as the head girl in their secondary school described her now husband as an ‘extremely quiet guy.’
According to the young woman, she came home for the holidays in her 300 level and surprisingly met Wale at one of her male university colleague’s place.
She had visited the male colleague who happened to be her campus fellowship mate and fellow exco only to discover that the man and Wale are childhood friends.
Wale who works as a computer engineer gave Taiwo his complementary card as they kept in touch.
On getting to the male friend’s house I met wale again. Unknown to me, my male friend and wale are best friends from childhood.
We both greeted and he gave me his business card, a computer engineer he is. After some time, the line would randomly flash me…This contact would randomly send me texts too but I have not had time to unravel the face behind it,” she said.
Upon completion of her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in 2009, Taiwo said she moved back to Lagos and began worshipping in a church called Calvary Bible Church only to discover that Wale was not just in the same church but happened to be the camera handler of the worship centre.
He would approach her after service to catch up on old times as well as remind her that he is a computer engineer. Taiwo stated that it was at that point she remembered her laptop needed fixing and this time saved his phone number after collecting his business card a second time
It was then it dawned on her that the random calls and texts had been from Wale. One thing led to another and they moved from acquaintances to business partners and then lovers.
She added; ”Of course, we reconnected back after about 10 years away from school; we agreed to be business partners immediately; we worked together for almost 3 years before I got my first official job.
During the 3 years, he asked me out, later proposed. In February 2013, we got married. Wednesday, February 16th will be our 9th year wedding anniversary luckily.”
