A Nigerian couple have walked down the aisle two years after meeting through the page of relationship adviser, Joro Olumofin.
The man known as Tosin had taken to Joro’s dating platform in 2021 to announce that he is based in Texas and in search of a lady living in the same city to have a serious relationship with.
Tanwa came across the post on January 7th 2021 and though she was not living in Texas, she still reached out to him to show interest.
Tosin received messages from numerous women, but Tanwa’s own stood out, however, he failed to respond.
She did not give up and abandon mission instead she contacted him again three days later and that was the beginning of a relationship that led to them getting married in 2023.
According to Joro, this is the second couple getting married in 2023 that met through his dating platform ‘Bae’s search’.
Bellanaijaweddings shared the couple’s love story on Instagram.
”Tanwa was scrolling through IG on January 7th, 2021 when she came across an interesting “Joro Olumofin’s bae search” post. A certain young man based in Texas was searching for a lady also based in Texas interested in a serious relationship.
Tanwa wasn’t based in Texas but she still reached out to him via the contact information provided.
The young man happened to be ‘Tosin’ and he was a bit slow with his responses because he was overwhelmed with messages from over 200 ladies (yes the post was that captivating 😂). Tanwa then again reached out 3 days later and the boy got hooked,” it read.
In other news, Jeremiah Iziogo, a Nigerian man who went viral early this year for showing kindness to prisoners in a van while hawking on the streets has remembered those who transformed his life.
The former hawker had become a viral sensation when a video surfaced online showing him giving out cash to inmates being transported in Correctional Service vehicle.
Billionaire businessman, Obi Cubana took interest in him and offered Jeremiah scholarship to continue his studies as well as automatic employment after graduation.
Months after enrolling into school, the young man has taken to social media to mark one year anniversary of the day he dropped out of school to fend for himself by hawking.
He said that on December 12 last year he moved to Lagos when all hope was lost but his life was transformed courtesy of that video which captured his kind act.
Recalling how life was for him when he first reached Lagos, Jeremiah said thought he would have gotten a shop or a menial job by now, but God had different plans for him and he ended up back in school.
He thanked Obi Cubana, Daddy Freeze, and every other Nigerian that made it possible for him to leave the streets.
Jeremiah wrote; ”I left school for Lagos this day last year when all hope was lost 😞 and God intervened and #gracefoundme🙏. Praise God. When I dropped out of school i thought by now I will either have gotten a shop of my own or get a menial job but God had it otherwise and I was sent back to school by well meaning Nigerians and that was Grace 🙏.
