Lolade was on holiday in the UK when she met Dapo. She had just three days more to spend before leaving for Nigeria. That day marked the beginning of beautiful tidings for both of them. Lolade’s cousin changed the love momentum in her life that lovely evening she escorted him to his friend’s birthday party which was held at a roller skating club. Lolade had to take a back seat because she doesn’t know how to skate! Wow, sometimes a disadvantage can surely be a blessing. While she was busy enjoying the fun by chilling, a dark and handsome guy walked up to her asking her to dance and skate with him. They both locked eyes and she reluctantly followed him but he promised to protect her from falling. They got talking and viola, there was an instant and magical connection. Three days later, Lolade had to leave for Nigeria but that didn’t stop the duo who had fallen in love from the moment they held hands. Their love blossomed and they use all the social media platform to their advantage to keep their love burning.
Some few years later, Lolade got an admission into a UK University for her masters degree and she ensured that her choice of Uni is in the same city with Dapo.
For the memorable proposal, Dapo went all the way out to plan it with his dad and Lolade’s closest friend on a boat cruise. Lolade didn’t see it coming and when he fell on one knee, Dapo’s dad ensured he captured all the amazing moment between the madly in love pair. Of course, Lolade said Yes and sealed it with a kiss!
Let’s leave you to enjoy their romantic love story beautifully captured by Klala Photography.
The Beginning of Awesome Moment
Dapo and I have been together now for about 4years. We met in the UK April 2011 while I was on holiday. After spending about 3weeks in the UK, with about 3 days left to travel back to Nigeria, my cousin came to pick me up for a friend’s birthday party; who happened to be Dapo`s cousin. The birthday party was at a roller skating club and I had no clue how to skate but I gladly tagged along with the aim of just making the best of my days left in London. While everyone was busy skating and dancing to the music a young tall dark guy walked up to me asking me to join him on the dance floor so he could teach me how to skate. I reluctantly followed him but seeing he was a fine dude, oh well. Tell me who wouldn’t fall for looks at first…. lol. We got talking and it was then I knew he was in the UK for his master’s degree. I realised from that moment he is definitely someone I want to get to know. We exchanged numbers at the end of the night. We saw again my last night in London, where he took me out for a dinner with the company of my cousin and his friend.
Who says long distance relationship don’t work, well mine did as our relationship grew stronger and stronger with phone calls, messages, and skyping day and night. Whewww! Thank God for social network. After almost a year apart, I reunited with the man of my dreams as I had to come for my masters in the UK and since then, we have been inseparable.
Hmmmm….that day was surely a big unexpected surprise. He planned it well with the help of my closest friend here in the UK. My friend (Abimbola) who lives in London called me saying she was going for boat cruise with her cousin but her cousin couldn’t make it so she wanted me to follow her. Dapo and I were going to London anyway to see his dad who just got back from Nigeria as we reside in Scotland, so I told her that’s fine. We met up the next day at Westminster for the London river cruise. When we got on, I wanted us to go on top as d view was lovely but my friend insisted we stayed down all because Dapo and his dad were there which I had no slightest idea. As we were approaching the Tower Bridge, (Marry me by Bruno mars started playing). My friend and I started singing and dancing along. As I turned around, I saw Dapo singing towards me with his dad filming all that was going on. I was in shock with my hands over my mouth wondering what he was doing on the boat with his dad. When he got down on one knee that’s when I became aware of what was going down. He said a lovely proposal speech and brought out a ring asking if I’ll be his wife. Of course I pulled my man up and sealed it up with a lovely kiss. Felt like the luckiest woman in the world.
