Anu & Marthins’ love story all started one Sunday afternoon on the Island

Nigerian couple, Anu and Marthins are getting married! The couple met when Anu’s friend invited her to an ‘ushering’ turned video vixen role in a shoot, one Sunday afternoon. 

Anu’s story 

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, a friend asked that I go with her for an ‘ushering job’ on the island. I obliged thinking the extra cash won’t be a bad idea.

On getting to the location and as I made my way into the house, I heard someone from behind say – ‘Excuse me please, I am Marthins Harrison, the director for this shoot. What are you doing here?’ I was irritated at the question and replied with a silly answer and headed into the house.

The shoot began almost immediately, and I knew I wasn’t going to be a part of it as I didn’t know how I was going to explain to my parents that I was a vixen. Marthins came around to pass party cup and props for everyone at the shoot and I pleaded with him not to show my face or bring his camera close to me.

Towards the end of the shoot, I went into the restroom to wait it out. We bumped into each other a couple of times when I came to check if the shoot was over and he asked for my number. I gave him the wrong number. Somehow, he figured I gave him a wrong number and confronted me, and I had no choice but to give him the right one.

Guess what? He waited one whole month before he called me. I was a fresher in Unilag and definitely didn’t think he was interested. Two weeks later, he called back again asking for a date. I stalled! He kept calling and I finally agreed. When he came to pick me up, I was in a tutorial session as exams were a few weeks away. He waited 4 hours until my tutorial finished.

We talked a bit; he had a book and a pink notepad with him which I asked him for. He mentioned the notepad was his goal book but he’ll give me on the condition that I write my goals for the year and hand it to him on our next date.

Well, that was the beginning of forever….

Marthins story

I still strongly believe that we were destined to meet! I was on the set of a music video on the island and we had many vixens as usual. I was just minding my business and looking at life through my camera lens when Anu walked in with her church skirt. It was as if I saw a ghost as I reacted in shock. I approached her, introduced myself as the director and asked what she was doing here.

We bumped into each other later and exchanged contacts. Now, I have this habit of either forgetting to get a girl’s contact details or getting it and never calling. On this occasion though, I couldn’t stop thinking about her and the effect she had on me on the first day.

If I am sincere, I couldn’t remember her face but there was an aura about her that was unforgettable. I was so restless and finally decided to call one month after we met. The call was brief. I was to attend a concert in Unilag and I thought I could see her. She lied about her whereabouts (I found out later she was actually in school) and so I didn’t see her.

We kept talking and I finally looked her up on Facebook. She was so pretty. There and then, I grabbed my phone and intensified my pursuit of happiness. 

Fast forward to our second meeting and first date, she kept me waiting for 4 hours. I guess that’s what I get for waiting a whole month before calling. We talked, had lunch and haven’t looked back since then.
