Maureen & Kennedy’s love began when Instagram launched Stories | #MAKE18

We love Maureen & Kennedy‘s love story; social media did it again! Their love story began on the 2nd of August, 2016 when Instagram launched Stories. They’ll be saying ‘I Do’ soon in an event planned by Purple Dazzle Events. We’ll let Maureen and Kendedy tell you their story and how #MAKE18 came to be.


August 2, 2016, Instagram Launched Stories. My first Story was posted on the 5th of August, 2016 at 11:58am. This is how our conversion went;

Maureen: Pilot ?

Kennedy: Fine girl??

Maureen: Lol, Fine boy

Kennedy: You got me, now I’m interested in knowing this fine girl.

Maureen: Maureen from Anambra, I school and live in Portharcourt.

Kennedy: Oh yeah! I’m from Anambra too…

That’s where it all began! She shot her shot!

We started talking basically everyday and she became a best friend to me. I enjoyed every bit of our friendship even though we hadn’t met.

We finally met on the 8th of September, 2016 at the Portharcourt Airport & I gave her 2 boxes of chocolates I got from Madrid, Spain. I got back to Lagos and sent a text message saying “I hope every bite of this chocolate plants in your heart the love I have for you”.

I was so in love with her. We started dating officially that very day. ? ?

It took a while for me to understand some of the things that she used to do; like calling me over 10 times a day, it felt like disturbance at a point but I grew to understand that it’s a process of love. I’ve never for once regretted my decision to enter into a relationship with her. She’s my right hand man.

Whenever I travel, once I land at my destination and I switch my phone ON her call comes in. This happened repeatedly.

Being with her is the best feeling ever, knowing that somewhere far away I’m someone’s source of happiness.

I live for you, I always tell her.

She has managed my imperfections thus far and groomed me to be a better man.

The Proposal 

Kennedy and I had been dating since the 8th of September, 2016 & it was the most amazing feeling ever. I was completely in love with him. I was in Lagos on the 10th of December, 2017 for his birthday and I noticed that he started to refer to me mainly as ‘wifey’ and not ‘babe’ anymore. Of course, I loved it.

We had a great time on his birthday and our relationship continued to wax stronger and stronger. On the 14th of January 2018 (my birthday); he asked me to spend forever with him and I was so excited!!

Of course, I said yes! I am excited to be marrying God’s will and not just who I love and I look forward to forever, together.
