Differences in culture and ethnicity are often a plus in some marriages. When well-managed, they can forge strong bonds in a loving relationship. Inter-tribal marriage is very, very positive, especially in a country with diverse cultures such as ours. It encourages federalism and, beyond that, we have to see ourselves as one people.
For Opeyemi and Chigozie, it was love that brought them together as they are both from difference tribes. This same love led them to the aisle to say their vows to each other.
Read thier love story from Opeyemi….
”We met in 2014 at a church in Capetown, South Africa. I was walking to catch a taxi and he offered me a lift, at first I said no, but he insisted. We chatted all through, although I saw him as a clown because he was so funny that night.
He offered me a lift again and it was same experience. Then he asked for my number for something that I can’t remember. Then one Sunday he called asked if I wanted to chill at the beach. It was quite annoying and I wondered where he got the gut. Anyway I said No. So he kept looking out for me at church and then I started noticing. He asked to know me better so we went on a date and talked for a while and after that day he fell totally in love.
He actually loved me like a sister and everyone thought we were siblings. I still don’t want a relationship for career reasons but I likes his company. But I noticed that he liked my career and supported it. He took me to castings and whenever he took me to any casting I got the job. These was creepy, I told my mum after a while and she said i could give him a try. So I gave him a try and as time went on i admired his maturity, intelligence, and sense of humor. I started praying about it and I had peace to go on.”
