Esi had no idea that one of her co-workers will eventually become the man of her dreams. After 3 months of working in the same office and never noticing Yaw, they finally set eyes on each other and right there, there was a mutual connection.
That meeting later led to a beautiful friendship which then meeting led to this moment. A day after her birthday, Yaw threw her a surprise birthday party for her and then popped the question.
How We Met By the bride-to-be, Esi
My soon-to-be husband had been in the company I work with for over 3 months without me noticing him, not even once. On this fateful Wednesday evening after work, our eyes locked as he drove past me with another colleague while I was waiting for my Uber. There was a mutual attraction there and then.
The following day, Yaw walked into my office and offered to drop me home after work which I refused and as relentless as he can be, he kept insisting. I was left with no choice than to join him and this evening droppings became our daily routine. That’s where our little gossips and inquisitiveness started from, we would chat and still have something to talk about when we met.
Somewhere late 2019, he asked me out and I turned him down but he kept pursuing me. I later told him to give me some time to pray about it, yep. And this was exactly his words “You can have all the time you need to pray; I’ll be here waiting”. After about a month, I agreed to get to know him better.
Fast forward to 2020, we started dating with the intentions of getting married soon, little did I know that my soon was just around the corner. My husband-to-be asked me to marry him a day just after my birthday at my surprise birthday party. I had a double portion of surprises, and my answer was definitely a YES!
Talented Nigerian singer Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, known professionally as Mayorkun has opened up on the reason why he left his banking career to face music.
According to Mayorkun who is also the son of veteran actress, Toyin Adewale, he left his job as a banker because he did not like the profession. The 26 year old added that he found happiness when he started doing music.
The ‘eleko’ crooner however advised those looking up to him to do what they really want to do as long as it makes them happy.
In his words;
“My name is Mayorkun the Mayor of Lagos and I’m here to tell you to do you. In case you don’t know my story, I used to be a banker but I never liked the job so I went on to doing me. I did music and ever since then I’ve been happy”
On Monday, Former Nigerian head of state Lt Col Yakubu Gowon was accused of “stealing half of Nigeria’s Central Bank” by the Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat. In his words, “Some people will remember when General Gowon left Nigeria with half the Central Bank of Nigeria, so it is said, and moved to London.”
Tugendhat made the statement while speaking during a parliamentary debate concerning the British government imposing sanctions on Nigerian officials. He went further to say,
Sadly, we know that our banks have been used for those profits and for that illegal transfer of assets. That means that the UK is in an almost unique position in being able to do something to exert pressure on those who have robbed the Nigerian people.
However, the former head of state who studied political science and international relations in the UK in 1975 has responded to the allegations in an exclusive interview with BBC. “I don’t know where he got that rubbish from, I served Nigeria diligently and my records are there for all to see,” he said.
The case is still on-going in the UK courts, although hundreds of millions of dollars have been returned to Nigeria from bank accounts in several places including Jersey and Switzerland.
