I am Olaobaju Tolulope Mary, a final year student of OAU English department. I am a makeup artist. My hobbies include travelling to awesome places, meeting people and learning new things. In writing about the couple, I don't know where to start! I met Bro Bimpe about six years ago in a program, and we got talking when he had to stand in for me. I was amazed at a person who did not know me but stood in for me anyway! I was just like ese o (thank you) in my mind not knowing that we would meet the next day. He said I love smiling and that I was going to be his personal assistant throughout the program; I agreed to that since it was going to be fun. That was how the journey started, and I became his baby. After that time, he would always call me to know if I am fine, fight me if I didn't eat, and encourage me to always be the good girl he knows. Things went on like this, and I always felt special as Oga Bimpe's baby. Fast forward to some years after, he called me and told me he would like me to meet someone; he said he was certain I would love the person. There was a meeting, and I met the sister. We were four at the location that day; oga Bimpe noted "this is the Tolu" to the sister, and I was quite lost at that point. She greeted me and told me her name is Opeyemi. Within a twinkle of an eye, we started talking so much so that oga Bimpe was surprised at how we got along so easily; this was about 3 years ago. I would later confirm that her beauty is beyond physical. She would chat me up frequently, and we discovered we have an excellent rapport. I often visited her in her final year on campus, and she always treated me as her sister(from whence I gave her the title 'sister mi'). My soul blesses her for those great meals in Alumni, the talks, and the fun moments that made me laugh. I found another version of Oga Bimpe in her, and I feel so blessed. Our friendship and sisterhood grew over time as she was very accommodating, loving, sweet, beautiful, and God fearing. Indeed, she is a walking angel with heavenly smile. Oga Bimpe and Sister mi (as I fondly call you), I wish you both an heaven on earth marriage. Your marriage shall be a blessing; your children shall surround your table; and you shall see your children's children in Jesus' name. I will miss the gists and talks I used to have with you both as 'singles' even though I rest assured I still have you being there for me, but now as one. I wish you a life long joy, love and happiness. I love you two from the depth of my heart!

I am Ajibade Promise Rhoda, a serving corp member and graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University. I'm also into fashion designing. My hobbies includes singing, listening to music, cooking, and gisting. I love being independent; and I am flexible and always willing to help. The couple are more like my family. Their love story is one that depicts the true nature of love. They have a love for God worth emulating, and the way they display maturity in handing issues of life is great. Both are fun to be with, and you can't feel bored when you're around them. Opeyemi is a great cook whose food I always look forward to eating. In fact, when we still used to cook together back then in school, I always yielded my turn to cook to her (even though she never accepts my 'offer'). She's a very good friend with a heart of gold, and she cares so much about everyone around her. She can disturb for Africa too, and her ijangbon is not from here. I would add, she's one of the prettiest lady I have met on the planet earth. However, she likes oppressing me with her height, body shape, and hair; she would always remind that she's taller and bigger than me...Mtcheew! Indeed, being your friend and bestie has been an interesting experience so far; my heart is so glad because in you I found a sibling. Oga Bimpe is a very humorous man whose sense of maturity I admire a lot; he teases me a lot, wonderfully. Very handsome, respectful and intelligent man he is. Oga Bimpe is very hardworking and fun to be with. On the occasion of your coming together to become one, I say Amen to all of your heart desires and prayers, and pray that God who has kept you since you met will continue to keep and preserve you. You won't know a better yesterday, and joy unspeakable will continually be your experience. Your home shall carry the heaven on earth aura of grace. You won't endure but enjoy your marriage by God's grace. You will live long together as one, fulfilling God's purpose for bringing you together. You will continue to model lives for Christ and be a channel of blessing to generations. I wish you a Happy Married Life in health, wealth, peace, joy and all your hearts so desire. I love you both so dearly.

I have known her for close to a year now. I met her at the NYSC Ife Central Secretariat during my Service Year. We got talking and we just clicked beautifully well, that's how we started our friendship. What I admire about her is her beautiful and cheerful spirit. I'm so glad I met you my beautiful friend.

I'm Oluwaseun Adeyeye, a final year medical student of the University of Ibadan. I enjoy watching movies, sleeping, and surfing the net; I don't have time for 'drama'. The bride, Olamide and I have been friends since Jss3. We had a lot of differences; I actually thought we could never be friends, but the sweetness in her made our friendship work. Olamide is selfless and real. When she loves, she loves with all of her heart and would go any length for you. She's the life of the party. She's also a bush girl (very razz Omo Ibadan).lol. I must say that Adebimpe has found a Jewel for himself. Baby mi, I wish you all the best as you enter this new phase of your life. May you both find a best friend in each other. I love you so much sweetie!

My name is Anuoluwapo Babatunde. I am a student of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta studying nutrition and dietetics. My hobbies include reading and writing. I met the delightful Sister Olamide in church. She's a member of the ushering unit and an executive of the youth department. She's very dedicated and committed. Even though she was not around a lot last year due to NYSC, she always made sure to come during special services when she was so needed. When she's not around, we always feel her absence. Sister Olamide is kind, loving, and cheerful; and she has a good sense of humor and style😉🥰 I wish you the very best and a living 'happily ever after'.

I am Oluwatobi Victoria Olulowo, a graduate of Oduduwa university. I am a caterer. Olamide became my friend in NYSC orientation camp, and we became close because we were in the same group (Redcross). Everybody knew her because she is always everywere, and everyone wanted to relate with her because she is beautiful and portable (like me). She can so talk 'anything' and yes, she's pleasantly troublesome. She extended a hand of friendship to me and the realization that she finished from OAU (very close to my own institution) made us even closer. Olamide is so awesome! Within a few days, I got to know a lot about her; we became 'twins' in camp since we look alike. I could look for anyone's trouble because I knew she would fight for me. The first time I spoke with her boo, he was as free as she is; now I could relate why they are compatible. Olamide is very fun to be with; our relationship grew like we had known each other for years. She made me realise that friendship is not in 'how long', but in 'how well' and commitment. Sugar pie, I love you so much. You're indeed a great woman and a blessing. It is factual that your marriage is blessed. In nine months, we go come chop jollof rice and meat! I wish your unborn children success and greatness all around. You mean so much to me, and I love you from the bottomless dept of my heart. Have a fruitful marriage sugarpie!!!

I am Adeyeye Janet Olamide (Iyawo's namesake, lol). I am a minister in the temple of Justice (Barrister) and a minister of the gospel of Christ. Olamide was my room mate in part 2, OAU. She is a very jovial person. I love her heart in particular; when she loves, she does deeply. She celebrates people from her heart. Also, she's very emotional: I remember the day Oga Bimpe was traveling back some time ago, and she was crying and uploading various videos.lol. In addition, I find the special way she treats her brothers quite lovely. She's an amazing woman who loves God and reads a lot too. She's a virtuous woman. In short, she's so beautiful (in and out). I congratulate the groom, Oga Bimpe. I know a bit about him, through Olamide, while he directed a drama back then on campus. He is calm and collected, and I'm sure Olamide loves him so much. This will be an open door to greater fulfillment of destiny. Both of you shall fulfill God's purpose corporately and individually. Congratulations!

I am Ogunyemi Mojisola, a pharmacist and graduate of National University of Pharmacy, Kharkor Ukraine. I met Olamide in a funny way, I was sitting under the tree at the Ife Central Local Government Secretariat when she said "Hi" (I can still remember her sharp voice) and since then, it has been a journey of laughter and great memories. Dear, I wish you a God centred marriage and a Christ driven home. Happy Married Life! Eyin Iyawo ko ni mo eni o.

I am Eniola Torimiro, a part one student studying Chemical Engineering in O.A.U. I'm also a model and fashion designer. My hobbies are singing, drawing and meeting new people. I met the bride at church and coincidentally, she was my mom's student. From then, she has been a sister to me. She teaches me new things, checks up on me, helps me out with sewing stuff and always has something light (refreshment) for me. Overall, she's beautiful, kind and will always be a source of inspiration to me. I've only met the groom a few times, but I've seen that he's a really nice and very friendly person. I wish the couple a happy married life with beauuuuuutiful children.
