Taking a walk down the memory lane, the Zimbabwean man tweeted;
This is how i met her. We became best friends until i put a ring on it.
This is coming after it was reported that Nigerian man took the social media marriage, to a whole new level when he posted an unusual advert. Chidimma Amedu had put up a post on 30 December, asking any woman interested in being his wife to reply, he told the BBC.
“Am of age to and I am ready to say I do and am wasting no time.
“Send in your applications – the most qualified will be married on January 6, 2018. Application closes 12 midnight, 31/12/2017,” he posted.
He then followed up with subsequent posts.
“Am serious about this oh and don’t say you did not see it on time. Good luck.”
He received a couple of responses, but one from a certain Sophy Ijeoma was the one which caught his attention.
“Am interested, just DM me…lols,” her post read.
At first, she thought it was a joke and she simply replied to keep the thread flowing. A direct message from him to her inbox, followed by a Facebook call, would change her life’s trajectory.
Two days after their first conversation, he travelled some 500km (300 miles) from his home in the northern city of Abuja, to Enugu in the east where she lived. She had been waiting for him outside a retail store and in true fairy-tale style, “it was love at first sight”, she recalled.
“He is the most handsome man I’ve ever met and I liked him instantly.”
After two hours of “awkward” conversation, he asked her to go to meet his uncle, who incidentally is also resident in Enugu. They got married on 6 January in a traditional Igbo ceremony, and posted photos of their wedding day on Facebook of course – to the amusement of the social media community.
