We love a good love story, especially one that culminates into one of the most talked about marriages in Nollywood history. #AChocolateLoveStory is one of such fairy tale weddings we love.
Nollywood ‘s it girl Ini Dima-Okojie has to be one of the happiest gals in the world right now, and for good reasons y’all. From her engagement to the good Dr. Abasi Ene-Obong, to their formal introduction, civil wedding and their traditional marriage which is still very fresh in our minds, we wouldn’t be remiss to say we would want a fairytale of our own.
If you haven’t heard or seen stunning photos from #AChocolateLoveStory fiesta, then you have been living under a rock! Not to worry though, we’re here to rectify the situation. (Christian Grey would be proud of us for that line.)
Before we go further, let’s share a little secret with you on how it all started.
#AChocolateLoveStory back story
About two years ago, on one random day I was ranting on my Insta stories about not being able to find fresh crispy maltesers in Lagos (they are one of my fave chocolates).
Next thing, I get an email from an Abasi titled ‘Maltesers from London’ 😅 saying he saw my rant on Instagram and he was in London at the time and would love to send some maltesers to my manager or representative’s address.
One week later I got a whole bag filled with maltesers. I was so happy, I posted it on my Insta stories saying I had the best fans.
But you were not just a fan and boy did you let me knowww!.
Reading our old emails now… I can’t help but smile and thank God for how far we’ve come.
No matter how long it took me to come around or how much I pushed back, you were ALWAYS THERE,… in one of your emails you said “I’ll move mountains to be in the same space as you Ini” and that’s what you’ve always done.
Thank you for fighting for us. Thank you for being everything you are to me. I can’t thank God enough for bringing you my way.
YOU ARE A MAN ABASI…In the way I can imagine that God expects a man to be.
You are a force, not just cos of what you do but who you are inside.
You are a kind man, a good man, a man of integrity, a man I can depend and rely on, a man I can be completely vulnerable with, a man that I feel safe with… a man that I love.
I love you Abasi, more than words can describe. And I am so ready to walk this path of life with you baby.
Here’s to Forever❤️
*us offering you a tissue box* and also asking God when?
