Sooooooooo, on this fateful day, I’m in the room with the bridesmaids documenting the getting ready proceedings when an usher comes in with Gift baskets for all the bridesmaids. They were all elated but because they were still getting their makeup done, no one could really open their gift bags except one fine geh like that. .

She goes through her gift bag and as usual there’s a lot of ” Awwwws”, “omgssssss“, “this is so sweet”, you know women na. At the bottom of the pile she then sees a Letter captioned ” A Thousand Reasons Why I love you ” … Instantly she goes nuts, – omg guys she wrote me a Letter, she begins to march on the same spot, waving the letter on the air like she just didn’t care, other bridesmaids began to gather around, Oya open it na, madam favourite bridesmaid, let’s see what the reasons are.

At this point as a sharp shooter I’m ready for water works and tons of emotions from everyone. Slowly and gently Madam favourite bridesmaid opens the letter, Lo and Behold, it was 1000 naira inside in 200’s. ????? mahn my knees were weak, ???? Fam!!! Fam!!! Fam!!! I gave up, I went outside to laugh for like 5mins before I could shoot again.
