Before we proceed though, let’s meet our couple goals honouree separately:

Ihuoma Linda Ejiofor
So much is to be said about Linda Ejiofor, who is well known for her role in popular television drama Tinsel where she played the role of Bimpe Adekoya. Linda has been nominated for many awards and at a time was tipped as the fastest growing Nollywood actress. Linda is also a model and a brand influencer.
How they met.
The pair were casual friends for a while until the passing of Ibrahim’s mum in 2016. She became close to him as a very supportive friend and stopped him from relocating to Abuja. In the following period he landed his architectural job and was also working on his solo art exhibition. Linda also stated that in addition to that she and some friends convinced him to audition for a role on Tinsel. Well, turns out he was a natural.
He got the gig and even played the boss of Bimpe, who later became her lover in the show. The pair saw each other multiple times a week on set and became even closer. Eventually, Ibrahim confessed his feelings and was rewarded with a mutual energy. Love in the air people!
The duo dated really privately with just family and friends knowing. The wedding was anything but private as they got married in a fashionable manner. The couple now have a kid together named Keon and this is a testament to how this couple have built something spectacular.
