Ikenna met his sweetheart Oris through close friend. It was more like a distance relationship since Ikenna was in South Africa training to become a pilot, while Oris was in the UK studying for her masters degree. They literally became chatting buddies and kept their friendship intact. There was a romantic attraction even though they were yet to meet face to face. Their bond grew stronger regardless!
They met for the first time in Abuja Nigeria, they had mixed sweet feelings but with high anticipation of seeing each, they were both super excited and love was just in the air for both of them. They both knew they are meant for each other and their meeting sealed it off instantly. Ikenna knew he has already met his heartthrob and he planned an intimate surprise proposal for Oris with her immediate family witnessing such a beginning of forever between them.
Our Love Story
While training to become a pilot in SA, I met a friend who happened to be the former schoolmate of Oris, she mentioned that she had a friend doing her masters in the UK. I and my friends being guys started jostling for would be the lucky dude to get the introduction, and yours truly triumphed and contact details was exchanged with the permission of the ever principled ORIS, we became chatting buddies which later developed into friendship.
On our return back to Nigeria, I flew to Abuja to meet with her for the 1st time, and it was love at 1st sight. We knew from then on that we wanted to take the friendship to the next level which we did after being together & building the relationship. I had 2 travel out again , on return I had made up my mind that I’ll make her my wife .
We planned to spend the Xmas holiday at her village with her family. After the family dinner , I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me, she was shocked & said yes, and like they say, the rest is history.
