Love is so kind especially when you marry the right person. Identical twins, Okunnuyis and Okuezes tied the knot on the same day. The couples walked down the aisle on Saturday, 30th of November at Foursquare Gospel Church, Omole, Ikeja District Headquarters and reception for the two twin couples was at the 10 Degree Events Centre, Oregun, Lagos.
The first twin couple, Folawemi Taiwo Okunniyi and Chinonso Akinade Okueze was the picture of absolute happiness, as they were joined by the other twin couple, Febisola Kehinde Okunniyi and Chibuzor Adelakin Okueze, a pharmacologist and accountant.
Folawemi Taiwo Okunniyi and Febisola Kehinde Okunniyi are identical twin sisters from the same parents and they hail from Ondo State, and the grooms, Chinonso Akinade Okueze and Chibuzor Adelakin Okueze are also identical twins from the same parents from Asaba, Delta State.
Contrary to what many may think that it was an ‘arranged’ marriage project, one of the grooms, Chinonso, said it wasn’t planned that way. This is the couples love story according to E24-7 MAGAZINE: “When I saw Fola, I was struck. Unlike what many think that ‘Kehindes’ are always faster, I was sharper than him. I started dating Fola first, but one day, I noticed that he was going out, but he didn’t tell me where he was going. That was so strange so I decided to find out where he was going, and I realised he was visiting the Okunniyis. He later told me he likes Febi, and I told him it was okay that he should stick to her, because I already had my eyes on Fola.”
Chibuzor also re-iterated his twin brother’s claim that the joint wedding wasn’t initially planned. According to him, “We thank God and give Him all the glory. I pray that this ‘friendship’ that has started today will last for a very long time,” he enthused.
“Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
WDN wishes the couples a happy & fruitful marital life together.
