An Edo businessman, Hon Eghosa has fulfilled a promise he made to his wife 10 years ago when she took a chance on him despite the ridicule she faced.
Hon Eghosa Agbonifo said his wife was mocked for getting pregnant for him, an Okrika seller. They had to have a shotgun wedding that included him borrowing a suit and a car.
After the court wedding, his new wife wasn’t impressed with her wedding picture because she was heavily pregnant. But Etuk said he promised he would recreate her wedding picture for her but in a more beautiful environment.
And he did. He took her to Santorini Island in Greece for their 10th wedding anniversary and they recreated their wedding photo as he promised.
“She was RIDICULED for accepting to be my WIFE 10 years ago. They said “that BOY wey dey sell okrika clothes na you carry BELLE for?“. Not to disappoint her, I gathered little money, rushed down to OREDO LOCAL GOVERNMENT REGISTRY to quickly do the registry and legalized our marriage. With the support of my friend PRINCE HARRISON AYONOTE (he gave me his car for free and also gave me the suit I wore ) and AZETA OMOAGHE ensured all logistics was put in place. Now let’s cut the long story short, my WIFE said the picture then wasn’t too interesting because she was almost 8 months gone. I told her never to WORRY, that as time progresses I will replicate the registry but in another level (Upgrade). This year JUNE 13th , I decided to surprise her during our 10th ANNIVERSARY to celebrate her in one of the world’s best islands (SANTORINI ISLAND IN GREECE). Had to share this for the love of throwback and whatever you are going through today, it is not permanent just keep pushing. #tbt #love.”
