BOBO PROPOSED AGAIN: ALL THAT HAPPENED AT MY BIG NIGERIAN WEDDING COMPETITION!
I need to gist you all about how My Big Nigerian Wedding went down but before I do that let me thank you, yes you. You helped make my dreams come true. I'm a personal blogger and very open but it's not everything I share with you all, na only me know the condition wey make crayfish bend. I thank you for encouraging your family and friends to vote, some of you took it like government work, so una love me like this? My heart felt prayer is that for every good thought you have towards me, God will bless you in folds!
I was meant to share the press release of MBNW on my blog and I did without really going through the contents until I started getting emails from my friends asking if I entered the wedding competition. Competition ke? bi ti bawo? I was skeptical because it was going to be very public, I didn't know if Bobo go gree sef plus there was a high chance of not winning…I don't even know where I mustered the courage to tell my parents about it.
I finally entered us for the competition and had to stop sharing their press releases on my blog, I was even too shy at first to ask you all to vote for me but I got a lot of friends (I have never met) egging me on and gingering me. I can’t count how many people I had to meet with face to face to vote for Bobo and I. I can't even count the mails from strangers telling me to keep on, that they will keep voting for me daily. I have the bestestest readers in the whole world and I know that God will bless ALL OF YOU!
After the first round of voting I got discouraged and stopped, I mean…see people with 20,000 votes na. I nor even smell am. However, I got a mail (all contestants did) warning against any hanky-panky as some people had just been disqualified because of it…which makes sense cos in the final round none of us even got up to 3000 votes. You don't know how hard life is until you ask people to go out of their way to vote for you. Politicians dey try.
Now that voting was over it was time for the face-me-I-face-you competition and I was scared!!! The game started with a question & answer session and out of 7 questions I think I got 2 wrong and it made me feel so bad…see as I fall everybody hand. Simple question like “Where Was Bobo Born?” …I could not get right. They also asked questions like "What is his ex's name", What is his mothers first name, what is his shoe size, "where was his secondary school".
Because I didn't get all my answers right Bobo had to do the carrot game with the other guys that we had a draw with and my happiest moment was when he was the first to get his carrot in the cup…just look at his face! I was jumping and screaming!!! This is what made us qualify for the second round.
So we moved on to the next game which was where the three ladies left: myself, Simi and Frances were blindfolded and asked to feel only the face of each guy and tell which was our own bobo, Bobo’s glasses were removed but I found it easy because he has a little scar under his chin…thank you Lord for that scar. All the ladies passed that game.
It was still a tie: finally the three fiance’s were asked to answer “ what is your fiancé favourite colour”…in my head I’m like that is soooo easy, who wouldn’t get it right. I was expecting questions like "how many lumps of garri can belleful your guy", "when he wears his shoe what foot does he put first", that kain jamb kweshun.
I thank God, because that was the question that made us winners, my favourite colour is pink, yellow comes after, then teal and peach… everybody knows I love pink and Bobo got it right! Bobo will never complain about pink again. I couldn't believe when we were announced as winners because I never thought it was possible!!! Never, ever, ever...
Bobo was so ecstatic he had to propose again…and once again I was speechless. Everything was so surreal that day, it still is. This means a whole lot to us, it is a very big deal and we want to say thank you to every single person that voted. You’re the ones responsible for taking us to the game show and I’m grateful to God for everything! I also want to give a special shout out to the other couples we met, they were all so funny and lovely. We are all winners in this and I'm so happy that we shared some beautiful moments in that waiting room before the game started: we should have a reunion.
