Tolu Oniru and her fiancé, Capt Tunde Demuren had their formal family introduction on Saturday, the 5th of September. The Soulmates are getting ready to be Mr & Mrs come 2016. Bride-to-be, Toolzo, shed some lights into how she felt about being the centre of attraction and how she overcame all the nerves on her introduction day.
Read what she says ……..
Ishhh is getting real!!
Can’t believe I’m going to be a married woman, it’s all so terribly grown up lol.
I didn’t want to put up anything on my site, but I’m trying to make it a bit more personal, so let’s see how this goes.
Anyhow, so on Saturday 5th September, I had my introduction. This is where the families of the bride and groom officially meet. We had expected about 100 people, I hear there were about 250 people there! Eeek!! I didn’t sleep well the night before, because I was so nervous and I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve been to events like this before, but I’m generally in a corner somewhere just observing.
Today the attention was all on me…and that was so unnerving! I’m used to being on stage, but then work-mode has been activated, so in my mind its all about work. I was so nervous, couldn’t eat…also because I was paranoid that I would get food stuck in my braces and would end up having lots of pictures with efo (spinach) hanging from my teeth lol.
I worked myself up so much that I ended up developing a nervous tick. My right eye twitched for hours and I could barely stop myself from freaking out….but when I saw him aka Bae the twitching stopped…(and the crowd went awwww!)
All thanks to God!
Much love to family and friends for making it all happen, looking forward to Part 2 & 3!
Tolu also shared some beautiful moments at the formal introduction which took place at Oniru Palace. You can view them here.
