He knew she was the one he wanted right from primary school, wow.
About to wed lovers Adeniyi Okubanjo and Lara Akinyemi were classmates in primary school (Grait Children School, Otta) in 1997.
They lost contact till Okubanjo found her out on Facebook after chatting with every girl with her name on Facebook in his search for her.
He eventually found her out in 2009 when she was in medical school. The rest is history as we await their October wedding.
The bride is a medical doctor while the groom is an accountant. The bride to be took to her Instagram page to tell their love story: “I don’t really know how to write these types of stories, i will just struggle”
“Our love story started on Facebook!! Believe it or not. In the afternoon of Sept 2009 , i was in med school then, got a msg from an old primary school mate (couldnt even remember him), i had 2 confirm from my class pics, i almost neva reply Fb msgs especially from strangers, dont even read dem most times.
“We started talking, apparently he had been sending msgs 2 all d Lara Akinyemis without profile pics on fb cos he had just me in mind since he was a pupil (he had eye for smetin good since childhood and was in love since 199somthing, bad child hahahahaa)? . The rest is history cos the story is still long oo.. I’m getting married to my longterm boo??????
