Tolu and Lekan are getting married in Atlanta on the 23rd of August 2019. We spotted Tolu’s custom ‘Mrs. Alase‘ leather jacket and were in love. After reading their love story, we fell even more.
He was trying to play the role of a DJ at his friend’s party, she tried to change the music and that’s where it all started. The love train moved to Twitter and the rest is history. Read Tolu & Lekan’s love story and see photos from their lovely pre-wedding shoot.
The first time I met Lekan was at our friend’s gamenight. I went to go change the music and here comes, Lekan, giving me this look and I said “uuuum I know him, he doesn’t care, it’s not yours.” But he just gave me a weird look so I walked away because I was thinking this guy has issues.
Fast forward to a couple months later, I realized we were friends on Twitter but of course never knew who he really was. I remember asking a general question on twitter one day “Hey does anyone know how to unlock an iPhone” and he responded. And I was like oh here is this rude guy but whatever, I need help lol so I told him to please check his DM.
I gave him my number and asked him to text me. After he helped me, every now and then he would text me to check on me and start little conversations. He always made me laugh and I felt comfortable talking to him, but I still had my defenses up.
Time passed and he eventually told me that he liked me. He actually became very persistent (yes he chased me) haha but I had just gotten out of a relationship and I told him let’s just be friends.
As time passed, he quickly became one of my closest friends and surely enough, I started to fall for him. Of course, we had our many ups and downs until we finally got it right. I truly believe that a “perfect” love happens over time and what is meant to be will ALWAYS be. Now I have a best friend in the man that I love dearly.
I met Tolu at my friends game night. I was trying to be the DJ for the event and noticed this chocolate yum yum approach the laptop wanting to change the music. “What the heck are you doing” I yelled, she responded with a very Nigerian response “is it your own” lol.
I wanted her from that day and was adamant about getting with her. She wasn’t ready and I had to understand that she just got out of a relationship. We stayed friends throughout and started to get closer. Timing is indeed everything so is building a foundation solid enough to withstand any storm. What we built overthe years will always be special in my heart.
My best friend, my support system, my Queen. I am blessed to have you in my life, you’ve brought me closer to God and changed my world.
We decided to have a girls night. While those plans were being finalized, I kept asking Lekan when I was going to get my anniversary gift, because it had been going on two weeks and I was wondering if he forgot lol. So my friends were sending different ideas of places where we should go and they sent pictures. I just thought they were being extra I guess because we hadn’t seen each other in a while.
Of course, I’m always running late and I was thinking to myself “the girls will be ok if I’m late”. I said goodbye to Lekan who was on the couch. We were walking across the street and I was wondering why everyone was so excited.
We turned the corner and I see Jennifer smiling really hard and I turn my head and see “Marry Me” in balloons and I’m thinking who’s proposing??? Only to look down and see my husband-to-be on one knee.
I was in complete shock!! To look around and see my close friends, his family flew in as well as my sister; it just made me so happy to know he pulled all of this off just for me.
