What’s your name?
My name is Buwanhot Wemimo ‘Tosin.
What’s your spouse’s name?
My husband is Buwanhot Ibrahim Stone Musa
Was it a case of love at first sight?
Not at all, I never liked him when I met him.
If it wasn’t love at first sight, how did the relationship begin after the first meeting?
A funny story indeed. I wasn’t attracted to him when I met him at the local government secretariat. We chatted while trying to complete our registrations, he helped me with photocopies, stapler and all sorts. He gave me his pouch to hold while the registration was on. He eventually forgot it with me, so he had to come to the Female Corper’s Lodge for it in d evening. I gave it back to him and we bid ourselves goodbye as I was itching to get back to the South West. After the Two Weeks expiration of the break, He kept calling me to find out why I was not back in Gashua. .I didn’t pick his calls because I did not want to give him a reason to believe we could ever be friends. When I eventually resumed back at Gashua, there were a lot of pending issues which I needed friendly support on and someone that could speak Hausa. We hooked up as friends and became really close. We talked about a lot and enjoyed each other’s company. I remember asking a girl that really liked him and was all over him to calm down as they could build a relationship over time. Eventually, I got relocated to Oyo State and I felt ‘’THANK GOD THIS IS OVER’’ as I thought I would never see him again. I had grown so fond of him and liked him so much but I didn’t want to get carried away with the illusion of loving him as I thought it would lead to nowhere. We kept talking on communicating but I didn’t want to feel attached though I missed him.
Fast forward to 2010, it seemed like a dream when he knocked at my door in Unilag post graduate hostel few days to my birthday and I was swept off my feet. I would categorically say that was when we started dating. The rest is history.
Did he officially ask you out or?
Yes he did ask me out and I said No, I couldn’t because of our ethnic differences (No indeed) LOLS
For the wife/lady: How did you react to his proposal for friendship or courtship?
I readily accepted to court him when I finally made up my mind
How long did you date him before he proposed?
There wasn’t a formal proposal from him because He told me he wanted to marry me as soon as I gave him an opportunity to express himself.
What is it about him that made you accept his proposal?
I can go on and on describing how much I saw a genuinely loving, calm, composed and matured man in Ibrahim. He is more than words can express.
How long did your courtship last?
Were you ever under any pressure that she/he might call the relationship off during courtship?
Not at any point.
Did that thought ever cross your mind?
Not after I made up my mind.
How was it trying to keep other ‘toasters’ or ladies at bay during the period of your courtship?
How did you feel when the date of your wedding was confirmed?
I felt so happy and grateful to God.
