Former child star, Benita Okojie, who shot to fame with songs like ‘Osamudiamen’ and ‘Child of God’ in the late 90s, is set to walk down the aisle at a yet unannounced date.
The 27-year-old, who has also sang with Lagbaja among others, will be exchanging vows with Olawale Adeyina, whom she met during her undergraduate days at the Redeemers University.
Adeyinka is a media entrepreneur, who owns and runs Green Street Media Network.
The ‘Ayo’ singer, who is the sister to City 105.1FM OAP, Bella Rose, narrated to Bella Naija Weddings how her fiancé proposed to her.
“I went to get ready and we had agreed that he would pick me up at 12 pm. when it was 12, there was no sign of him. 1pm passed, then 2pm… he still hadn’t come. I called to ask him why he was taking long. He apologized and said he had to get a job done for a client but he was on his way. When he came home, he came with my sister and she was forming vexing, that they didn’t open the gate early. It was part of her script.
“I was so concerned with us getting to the movies early to watch a particular movie that I didn’t notice anything strange. I went to get something outside and when I came back to the living room, I saw him kneeling with a box. I just started screaming and running round the house. I don’t remember anything he said. My mum had to ask me to “give him an answer o”. It’s one day I will not forget in a hurry,” she said.
