How they met - By the Groom-to-be
September 5, 2010 - It was just another day, after all the hustle and bustle of Lagos. I decided to spend the rest of the day on my Blackberry and its numerous social media platforms. I was going through my contacts' updates when Chidinma (a mutual friend) put Simi's picture on her display picture (dp). I liked the way she looked (cute, but a bit tomboyish), and I decided to give it a shot.

Chidinma initially refused to hook me up and said I was bad news for the innocent gorl. Eventually, she gave in, asked Simi if she could give me her pin (and she agreed nonchalantly). I buzzed her and we started chatting. We talked about everything including football, she's a Man Utd fan while I gun people down for a living (i am an Arsenal fan), we exchanged ideas and pictures. She was too real and that is a major turn on for me (no photoshop things). I couldn't stop calling and pinging her (she was serving in Katsina while I was in Lagos).

Simi came back to Lagos after her service year (1 month after we started chatting). I offered to pick her up from the airport. She politely refused and asked me to come see her later at her friend's (Isioma) house in GRA (wise move, considering the many cases of kidnappers at that time).

I put on a fresh Polo shirt and combed my afro for like 30minutes (lol). It worked. As soon as I got out of the car, she and her friend smiled like I had known them for ages (fine boy). Anywayz, we were both happy to see each other and we hit it off immediately. After a couple of days, I asked her to be my "girlie o". The rest they say is history.

She makes me click all the time. She's completely amazing. She's the kinda girl that your friends see as "one of the guys", and they are comfortable when she's around. She's gorgeous and prayerful. Her food keeps me asking for more (I am definitely getting fat, lol) even though you have to be in the kitchen helping out (always). Our arguments are always constructive and short. We end all our quarrels on the same day. Amongst everything and the ones I didn't mention, she's my best friend and I am glad I glanced at Chee gal's dp for more than a second. I love my baby (Simone) and I will always love her, no matter what. Simi's the one for Yokee.
