What NYSC has joined together, let no Otondo put asunder | Olamide & Anu’s Love Story

Olamide & Anu met at the NYSC orientation camp in Bende, Abia state. The couple, who are set to wed in December, shared their story with us via their cinematographer – Ladi Milan Films. Read their story and view photos and highlights from their pre-wedding shoot with Ladi Milan Films and Keziie.


I was so surprised and didn’t even know whether to be upset or not because I did not expect to be posted to Abia; I thought it’d be Lagos or Ogun at the most but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I met Lamide in November 2012 in Bende, Abia state. She was the most amazing woman I had ever set my eyes on; so graceful and beautiful. She has such a large heart and she was always so cheerful.

We started to hang out and I knew almost immediately that I was ready to spend the rest of my life listening to her talk, watching her smile and having her give birth to my kids. We got introduced in April 2017 and we’ll be getting married in December.
