Moji and Jide’s wedding was our last wedding of 2017. Even though it was December, the weather was not unbearably cold. The day was full of love, excitement, and jubilation. Their beautiful wedding photos and love story are posted below:
Moji and Jide met over the phone in a very unusual way. Who would have thought a simple business conversation could blossom into something beautiful.
How we met according to Moji (Bride)
I met Babajide in early 2009, then he was an online radio show host on Afrijamz.com (S/O to Afrijamz) and I had just started to try my hands in the media industry so I was on every platform for a promo. On this fateful day, I happened to also be on Afrijamz radio. The first thing that got my attention was the voice of this host. His voice filled the entire room and I wondered who this man was. I had to keep focus because I was on a job. I did my promo that day and I met some other listeners. I just kept saying to myself “this man had to look as nice as his voice. We must have felt the same way because, before the end of the day, he found me on Facebook and since then we couldn’t stop talking. I became his content writer and unofficial promoter and that was how it all started.
Fast forward to July, I attend the Nigerian Reunion in Las Vegas (S/O to NRC). I was a regular reunion-goer, but it was his first. Although we talked about the reunion, he never mentioned that he’ll be attending. I was in Vegas working when my phone rang and all he said was “I’m here”. I was confused and nervous, little did I know that homeboy had been stalking me. We met up and started chatting up, then I began to feel at ease, he was that the same guy I’ve been talking to all these months, sweet and charming. It was as if we’ve known each other long our connection was unexplainable. Throughout that weekend I didn’t see much of him because I came for this reunion for “work” and networking, he also came to the reunion for other reasons. That weekend ended rather too quickly and we both went back to our various destinations.
We remained very good friends and he gradually became my best friend. We would spend hours on the phone/skype talking about nothing. We made trips between Providence and Orlando and other cities. Babajide became my appointed special adviser, I couldn’t make any decision without tapping his brain, he became my comforter and prayer partner, he became my personal DJ, we would send random lyrics to each other and Babajide knew all the songs, he would send me lyrics by my favorite artist (2face) most of which were love songs. After some time I figured he was trying to tell me something. Babajide understood me like no other person, as hard headed as I can be he knows just what to say to calm me down. He knows my “cool down” button and that was how I knew Babajide was the one!
Fast forward again to 2012 after college I began to apply for work in and out of state. As God would have it I got a job offer in Orlando. I moved down early 2013 that was when we decided to take our relationship to the next level.
Packing up and leaving my family was one of the biggest and scariest decisions of my life and I am thankful to God for the courage. Every day I bless God for making me cross paths with such an amazing and incredible man. “With you is where I’d rather be” It is such an amazing feeling knowing that I will be spending forever with my best friend. Babajide Adufe temi nikan. I LOVE you and I can’t wait to say I do!
Where do I start? If memory serves me correctly, Moji and I met through Afrijamz Radio. At the time I had a show running on the radio station once a week. During that time she was involved in a start-up magazine and they were building materials for the launch of the magazine. I looked them up on Facebook which is where I came across Moji’s personal page and I added her.
The first time we spoke, we exchanged some pleasantries and talk about the magazine. I showed interest that I wouldn’t mind getting on the mag. Side note: after looking through her Facebook page, I noticed she was cute, short, and outgoing. I believe this was in Feb/March of 09. She became a regular listener on my show, and sometimes help with promo while the show gained more popularity.
Fast forward to July, myself and some friends agreed to go Nigerian reunion conference held in Vegas that year. Moji wasn’t aware that I was attending. I arrived Vegas late Thursday and linked up with a DJ friend of mine, where I saw this short colored hair lady chilling and laughing with her friends. I wasn’t really sure it was her, so I stalked for the whole night and got my confirmation that it was the one and only Mojy Show live and direct in Vegas. The next day, I made contact, and all I said was “I’m here” she was very surprised and excited about meeting, though I was a bit nervous. We met and chatted for a bit, the connection between us felt very normal, she was being her usual goofy self and I just didn’t know how to act. Later that evening she hooked me up with some food, (she no let person starve). That was where our friendship began. So we began the journey, we became friends whereby we talk practically every day, we shared a common interest, music.
Jan 2013, she got a job opportunity here in Orlando, which meant she would be moving down to Orlando, I was low key excited, but I never showed any sign of excitement. I was a long trip from Providence to Orlando; this is the road that eventually led us to this point. It hasn’t been an easy journey to get here but the fact that we reached this point is by the Grace of God. It is also a confirmation that God is involved.
I’m adventurous but she pushes me beyond my limit, she keeps me on my toes; it’s never a dull moment with Mojisola, she is God fearing and a go-getter; all these qualities and a few others all helped in my decision to take her hand in marriage.
I am beyond excited and grateful to God that in December I shall be starting my family with this beautiful and virtuous woman. A perfect example of one of a kind” Mojisola, Adunfe mi, I can not wait to be your husband.
