How I met Wale, Tosin narrating; On a certain day in July 2014 I had gone for lunch with my colleagues as usual when Tomiwa (Wale’s younger brother) approached me and said “I would have married you but it’s against the policy of the Bank” and I was lost… I barely even knew who he was. Consequently we kept meeting at the canteen and one day he said Tosin you have to be part of our family, I have a brother I want to introduce to you… I wondered why he was persistent so I asked who his brother is and requested for a picture.
We later met again days later and he showed me the picture I wasn’t impressed because Wale looked like a baby in it and I assumed we were age mates and I would ride him?…
Later Tomiwa told me he was going to give his brother my number, well well, go ahead and that was in July…. So I waited for this phone call which never came till Aug 23, 2014 which happened to be a friend’s wedding so I told him I was busy that he should call back later. He never called back till later in September, 2014.
Then we kicked off, communicating every day, talked like we had known each other for long. We finally met in October and there was no strike at his sight, no love at first sight… We continued talking, he bought gifts on my birthday which still didn’t mean anything to me. Fast forward to 2015 Val’s day I got gifts but I have my own gift before Val’s day…. I then started asking what we were doing and where we were heading but trust Wale the Mr. Coded he said nothing.
On my friend’s bridal shower at the end of Mar, 2015 we had a fight and that day he told me he doesn’t think we are good for each other…. That we are too alike….Hiannnnnn!!!! I was weak but we kept arguing… We reconciled and from that day we agreed to make it work…. .
He decided to do the analog style of meet parents and then make intentions known then fix a date for introduction, there was never a moment before then of ‘would you marry me/be my wife’
The proposal came after our introduction in Nov 2015 in a lonely place which had just the two of us….
