“Our love is forever, cos Christ is our pillar.” –Tomiisin & Simeon.

Meet the soon-to-be couple
My good friend Oluwatomiisin, and her fiancé Simeon will be tying the knot in a few days. 

The soon -to-be couple.

Tomiisin is one of the most amiable persons I’ve met. I’ve known her for over a decade, as we attended the same secondary school (FGGC OYO). In school she was easily liked by everyone, students and staff alike. She was a cheerful and well-behaved student. She was also God-fearing and a committed leader in the school chapel. And that’s where we became friends. Today we’ve come a long way thankfully despite the growing time and distance.

About 3 years ago, I got to know Simeon, who Tomiisin introduced to me as “Noble“. We still haven’t met yet, but we have maintained social contacts. I see him as a nice and diligent young man, and our conversations have been cordial. I remember he was trying to convince me at some point that I should become a Paediatrician so that I can take care of their kids in the future…😅


How They Met:

The pair met at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife about 6 years ago. Tomiisin who was a student of Joseph Ayo Babalola University (JABU) at the time was spending the break with her cousins at OAU. According to her, she had gone with them to study (in preparation for her 1st semester exams) at a lecture theatre (ODLT II) one fateful day, when she met him. 

They got talking casually. Then became friends who grew fond of each other. As days turned into weeks and months, their friendship progressed into interest, and blossomed into love. Thus the relationship was birthed.

Over the years, the two remained committed to each other not just in thoughts, but through their words and actions. Their relationship was initially characterized by late-night calls, chats, and a number of catch-up visits in between. One time Tomiisin told me of how her fiancé came all the way from Lagos to pay her a surprise visit in Ikeji-Arakeji, where her school was located. 

Thankfully, as the relationship grew, the distance became less since my friend had the privilege of serving (and eventually getting a job) in Lagos state, where her fiancé worked. 

Of course like in every relationship they had their own unique challenges, but through honest conversations and faith in God, and the encouragement and support from godly parents, siblings, mentors and friends, they overcame such.

I admire their togetherness, strength, courage and determination to face the world together. It takes faith to commit one’s heart and future to another person.

Here’s what they think of each other: 

Simeon- She’s a Sweetheart_ 😘

Tomiisin- He’s a darling_ 😍

Today I celebrate a friendship that has persevered, a relationship that has endured challenges and a dream that has become a reality.

Yours is a beautiful love story and I hope it inspires all of us that desire a story as beautiful as it is.

The video clip is a token of my love and admiration to you both.

Congratulations Tomiisin and Simeon, may your home be blessed, fruitful and established in Christ.

Cheers to an amazing future together!!

Much love,
