How We Met
The couple met in traffic while the groom was giving alms to the less privileged, here’s the full story, narrated by the bride. While I was stuck in traffic on my way to silverbird TV in Abuja. I saw a guy giving some money to a little boy, when the others noticed, about 12-15 of them gathered around him to help them as well, and I thought to myself “this cute guy just got himself into trouble”. He gave them some money and they fled. Somehow, our eyes met and I kept smiling, the traffic light turned green and I drove off to my destination. Turns out he was also heading to Silverbird to meet up with a friend. When I got down from my car, I realized he was parked just next to me unknowingly. He then approached me and said hi and introduced himself politely as McEva Temofe.
I laughed and asked him if he was from Zimbabwe or something. I didn’t think the name sounded Nigerian, but he said he was a Nigerian from Delta state. I was impressed meeting a cute Deltan because I’m also from Delta State and was just hearing the name for the 1st time. So I poked further and asked if he was one of those ‘Abj guys’ that change their names and he confirmed it was his real name. That was how we continued our conversation, exchanged numbers and went on to become best friends ‘solid padis’. And the rest they say is history. It’s funny we met here in Abuja and my village is just 2 villages away to his in Delta State. I’m so blessed to have him
The couple tied the knot in the city of Abuja on the 23rd of July, with close friends, family, and some important personalities which include Her Excellency, Hajiya Aisha Atiku Bagudu, wife of Kebbi State Governor and Popular Nigerian Music Act Jaywon who blew the guests away with his music performance at the wedding.
