When Fam heard Feyisola’s voice for the first time, his heart melted. Her sweet, gentle voice was welcoming and he did not hesitate to shoot his shot.
Fam made sure Feyisola sat next to him at a friend’s birthday party. They went from lengthy conversations to the exchange of gifts, and now they are saying yes to forever.
Enjoy their sweet love story and proposal photos.
How they met, as shared by Fam:
Feyisola completed her IT at MainOne, where she made a lot of friends, one of which happened to be Akin. Fast forward to my days as a struggling youth fresh out of NYSC, I had just joined MainOne as a graduate trainee in the cloud solutions team, led by Akin.
As a youth with nothing but time and a willingness to gbedu, I offered to coordinate his birthday party at the time. I had invited everyone on the guest list except this Feyi whom I had never heard of. So we called her together in the office and I heard my wife’s voice for the first time, it was glorious. This led to some investigative journalism on Instagram, and I was well pleased.
On the day, she arrived at the location looking and smelling like a royal garden in spring, I had to move quickly and get her a seat next to me as heaven helps those who help themselves.
We hit it off immediately. The conversation was spectacular and riddled with giggles, that’s how I went to the bathroom, only to come back and see someone else in my seat trying to make my wife laugh, lol. I had to politely excuse him, I don’t play like that. At the end of the night, we exchanged details and parted ways.
We met at a couple of other events and started talking more each day. One day, I got a random delivery of a bedding set, and the rider said it was from Feyisola, I had mentioned in a conversation that I needed to get a duvet at some point. It warmed my heart and my bed for many nights.
At this point, we were talking for hours every night. Instead of Feyisola to be reading her books, she was talking to man, but all is well that ends well. I remember leaving my office to Unilag on her birthday to give her a few of her favourite things (including mint ice cream because toothpaste is not enough) and a sweet handwritten note. By this time them don already get me… Hard guy in the mud.
On the 13th of December, I asked her to officially be my girlfriend, will you believe this woman said that she’s not ready? Thankfully, about 3 weeks later, she saw the error of her ways and begged me profusely to be her man. As a man of integrity, I had to form first but eventually, I agreed. 😅 The rest, as they say, is history. Four amazing years, a pandemic and some 1+ years of long-distance later. We are getting married!!! ❤️
