Nigerian Couple Who Never Met Physically Until Their Wedding Shares Love Story by deturla: 6:35pm On Jan 17, 2020
OlaOlu, based in Nigeria met Fola, a Nigerian Nurse based in the U.K on Facebook sometime in July 2019 and they immediately hit it off.

Their conversation started with a comment on a Facebook post which quickly progressed into the DM. And the rest, as they say, IS HISTORY!

What makes this particular Naija love story exciting is that they never met physically during the 3 months they dated.

The love bug and connection was strengthened through video calls on Whatsapp and Facebook, and after 3 months of online dating, Fola travelled to Naija to meet her Prince Charming and they got MARRIED!

The husband made this post on Facebook:


It was Itodo's birthday and as Getmeri's ambassador I sent his number to the company to call and wish him a happy one. I shared his appreciation of the kind gesture on my timeline and next thing I know this Facebook friend commented that when will she get her own Getmeri call.

My first reaction was, kinni isolenu yí bayi? I couldn't leave the comment unattended to because Getmeri's image was at stake so I replied that she should dm me her number.

When she came inbox and dropped an international number, I was dismayed. International calls cost more and Getmeri nuh send me message reash this level. But she's got this good sense of humour and I could feel she was hitting on me as well.


That very night in August, we chatted for about 5 hours till early in the morning. The flow was effortless.

So I finally get to marry a nurse as it is and the prophecy I gave myself that my future wife would walk into my DM herself just like my mum walked into my dad's house is fulfilled.

Thanks to a few friends that have been part of our journey. Started from the DM now we're here.


We caught up with them before Fola made her return trip back to the UK, and they shared their journey from Facebook to getting married with us.

Love is indeed beautiful

Anyone can get married at anytime.

The goal isn't marrying. It's about marrying the right person... having a blissful home... and growing old together.

This isn't an ideal way marriage should happen. But may the grace of the Lord be sufficient for them.

Ideal is what you think it should be. But realistically, marriage can happen anywhere, anyhow and anytime.

Amen to your prayers.

I wanted to make a point about that also... Live together at least for a lil while to know the kind of behavior you both have.... To know what you can tolerate and not tolerate... Not like i'm hating.. But get to know each other first...

You are not in the right position to make this assertion. All what you should do now is watch and pray.
