Here&Now: Wedding of Oluwatosin Awopetu and Solomon Nwokonu (Video)
The wedding between Oluwatosin of the family of Awopetu and Solomon of Nwokonu’s family was a display of an amazing union. Also, the union is an enviable one in that beautiful Oluwatosin is from a Yoruba family while Solomon is from an Ibo family. This is a good proof that no ethnic or tribal differences can stop true love.
Solomon, the groom, met Tosin, the bride, years before and he said of his wife, Oluwatosin, “she’s sweet, she’s caring, she’s beautiful, she’s amazing, supportive…. she exudes that amazing character that makes her a very, very unique lady. She stole my heart right from the day we met.”
Also, when Oluwatosin, the new wife, was asked, about her husband, she said, “My husband Solomon is very caring, he’s very loving, he’s my best friend, my companion, he’s always down to hear me out and most importantly, he has the fear of God.”
The mother of the bride, a widow, Mrs. Awopetu also said her heartfelt prayer for the newly wedded couple, “I wish them well, I pray that may the Lord give them good children. May the Lord bless them abundantly so that they’ll be able to take care of those children and train them in the way of the Lord.”
The father of the groom was not left behind in the raining of blessings on the newly wedded couple. He had this to say in his prayer and expressed wish, ” Like I wish Solomon right from birth success, and God will continue to make him succeed…. (God will) give them good home and make him (Solomon) good husband.
In all, there was evident high spirit, so much excitement, healthy emotions and lovely spark.
