The past weeks must have indeed been hectic for popular On-Air-Personality, Tolu Oniru, better known as Toolz. Over the weekend, she held her traditional marriage ceremony in Lagos and several dignitaries were in attendance.
Recounting how the day went, Toolz stated that she still cannot believe she is going to be called a wife soon.
Toolz said it was her first time having a personal experience of a traditional marriage and because of this, she was very nervous.
According to her, “Ishhh is getting real! Can’t believe I’m going to be a married woman, it’s all so terribly grown up (laughs). I didn’t want to put up anything on my site, but I’m trying to make it a bit more personal, so let’s see how this goes.
"Anyhow, so on Saturday 5th September, I had my introduction. This is where the families of the bride and groom officially meet. We had expected about 100 people; I hear there were about 250 people there! Eeek!
"I didn’t sleep well the night before because I was very nervous and I really didn’t know what to expect.
"I’ve been to events like this before, but I’m generally in a corner somewhere just observing. Today the attention was all on me and that was so unnerving! I’m used to being on stage, but then work-mode has been activated, so in my mind it’s all about work.
"I was so nervous, couldn’t eat, also because I was paranoid that I would get food stuck in my braces and would end up having lots of pictures with efo (spinach) hanging from my teeth (laughs).
"I worked myself up so much that I ended up developing a nervous tick. My right eye twitched for hours and I could barely stop myself from freaking out but when I saw him aka Bae the twitching stopped (and the crowd went awwww!)All thanks to God! Much love to family and friends for making it all happen, looking forward to Part 2 & 3!"
