In this interview with Vanguard Allure she talks about why she decided to go natural and many more, see excerpts from her interview below:
On why she went for a Natural look
Just like I was convinced to wear make-up on my engagement day, I was also told to do same for my wedding. I also planned to go for nude make over. I contacted a make-up artiste and she was on standby. On that fateful morning, I was in the car and I looked at the mirror and liked what I saw. Meanwhile, because I was already running late, I had begged the make-up artist to come over and do the makeup in the church (inside the car). After all, it wasn’t supposed to be a serious thing- just small touches here and there.
So, as I stared at myself in the mirror, I looked so natural and beautiful; I really liked what I saw.
Some church members also came to me and liked my natural look and agreed with me not to make up.
Secondly, to be honest, when my husband first met me, I had not had my bath, but he saw and fell in love with my natural look. My hair was due, my face looked way older, I was even tying nylon on my hair when he came to me on that fateful morning, yet he loved what he saw. So, who am I supposed to be making all that up for on my wedding day?
So, that was it. I think God just decided to crown me with early morning beauty the day I wedded.
On her reaction when her photo went viral
I’m a writer and a blogger with a Facebook fan page. So, I actually uploaded the pictures on my Facebook page, telling my fans and readers that I have gotten married.
As at Tuesday, it had over 1,500 shares on Facebook. The picture went viral with some people saying all kinds of things about me. I’m a very emotional person. I saw the pictures on different blogs and the comments were not pleasant at all. Someone even said that I wanted to be famous that was why I didn’t use makeup. Some other persons said I was trying to condemn those wearing make-up on their wedding day that was why I went for natural look. The comments were too much and mostly insulting. I had to stop reading them because it was really getting at me.
Honestly, if I knew it would be like this, I wouldn’t have posted it.
On how she met her husband
We met last year, December 16, 2015 after I was robbed besides Abiola Garden, Lagos at about 9am. The robbery was a horrible experience; I lost my Blackberry phone, tab and some money. Thankfully, I wasn’t raped but sustained minor injuries. A close friend then volunteered to come help me massage my leg when he heard what happened to me.
When he was coming that morning, he came with his long time friend (who is now my husband). When I first saw them, I almost refused to open the door, because it was quite early and I wasn’t expecting two visitors (one stranger at that time).
Well, I later had to open the door and that was it. After the first visit, he (my husband), came back alone on December 26, to see me and that was how our relationship started.
Few weeks later, he proposed because he was scared that if he wasted more time, another man would take over.
We had our court registry in February 2016, barely three months after we met.
