CHIBUZOR: My name is Chibuzor Adelakin Okueze and my twin brother is Chinonso Akinade Okueze from Asaba Delta State we got married to twin sisters, Folawemi Taiwo Okuniyi and Febisola Kehinde Okuniyi from Ondo state.
VRH: How does it feel to be married the same day?
CHIBUZOR: Excited…thrilled…daring…but in all good
VRH: How did your paths cross?
CHIBUZOR: Hmmm….complicated..but I simply call it divine…we use to stay in the same estate and actually opposite each other..but we never for once met…
There is this lady that as a shop just down the street…and we both shopped from her unknowingly..
She eventually mentioned to the twin ladies that some twin guys stayed across their house…but the ladies felt like it wasn’t any of their business. We eventually went to see them at home…well they didn’t want to come out to see us…but eventually they did..
And I was like OMG…hmmm…but we all kept calm..exchanged pleasantries…and we went home We were invited to church the next day and we went ..from there we got chatty ..but it was all friendship
VRH: Have you thought about this form of wedding before now?
CHIBUZOR: Just when we were little..it was more like a fantasy
VRH: What were some of the challenges you had in terms of recognising your spouse when you were dating?
At first sincerely it wasn’t easy
thats a funny one…
I usually ask when I see them….who is the pharmacologist..lol..! the truth is love sees beyond the physical…
Now when I see her, ..like adam said ..you feel the bone of your bones…lol
VRH: What are your wishes for this union?
CHIBUZOR: We thank God and give Him all the glory. I pray that this ‘friendship’ that has started will last for a very long time, “This is awesome. It’s great being brothers and brothers-in law to each other at the same time, and vice-versa.”
