She Said What?

Prompt: Feb 21 Undo If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.   How We Met: Gideon Tundun and I met in the University of Lagos. I was in my third year and she was in her first year. We had both volunteered on a charity project in Ilaje and we automatically bonded. For me, it was admiration at first sight.

Fisayo & Mayowa: Flangiprop

Prompt: Feb 1 Flangiprop! Invent a definition for the word ‘flangiprop’, then use the word in post.  How We Met: Fisayo We met on BBM (yes, I said it). It was the whole ‘fine girl on your dp, give me her pin’ thing. My friend, Nora, had messaged me and said, ‘Fish! I’m giving your pin to Mayowa o. He’s a fine boy’.

Prompt: Jan 17 In a Crisis Honestly evaluate the way you respond to crisis situations. Are you happy with the way you react?     How We Met: Feranmi   You know the saying ‘I bless the day I found you’? Well, sometimes I’m confused as to whether I bless the day I met Susan or not.

Lara and Mr Hopes

How we met: by Lanre I cannot exactly say the point when we officially met. Honestly. All I know is that I was at some special church program with serious hopes of seeing my ex and Lara was seated beside me. In the middle of the program, she yawned, shook her head and said, ‘Are you not hungry and bored?’ I was taken aback and amused but I gave a

Ronke And Kingsley

How we Met: Ronke I’m not quite sure if it is the average girl’s dream to meet the love of her life in a rickety yellow and black Lagos public bus; but that was where I met mine. I remember that when I was way younger, I used to get beaten a lot by my mom every Sunday. We lived in an area dense with members of the white garment

Teni & Lawrence

However, there were a lot of people there. Apparently, there was going to be some comedy show that night at the hotel and the people had arrived and were waiting. I had no interest in

Jimmy & Lydia

How We Met: by Jimmy The whole bank met her before I did. I’m the branch manager of a bank and to be honest, it’s a boring job. On that day, I was not particularly in a good mood. As I sorted through documents, feeling sleepy, one of the cashiers rushed into my office and informed me that there was a ‘lady causing wahala downstairs o’.  She had tried to

Ngozi & Wale

This is the start of a new series called ‘Proposals’. It was inspired by my scary love/obsession for other people’s love stories. (BellaNaija Wedding website knows me by name!). Anyway, the stories in this series are purely fictional. And any resemblance of any of the stories to your present or future proposal is purely coincidental. 😀 Enjoy! How we met: By Ngozi If you’re a female photographer you’ll know what

When they ask us how we met, we both smile, giggle and then try to look as though we are thinking of a particular frequently traveled path down memory lane. Then I hold his arm affectionately, he responds by gently pulling my cheek, I laugh and I say, ‘Feyi, the honor is yours’. He responds by looking into my eyes and saying, ‘It’s an honor alright’, and then he smiles
