Read excerpts from the interview below:
On How They met each other
Timi:
We met at the House on the Rock church. I was not searching then, but simply minding my own business when I spotted her. I was standing behind the choristers on the podium when I sighted this fine girl. I went to speak to her by asking her why she was frowning in church. I remember saying, ‘Hi, my name is Timi Dakolo,’ and she said, ‘and so?’ You would not believe that she gave me a fake number and I started searching for her every Sunday until I finally caught up with her and challenged her for giving me a wrong number. It was my lucky day because that was how we started talking. This was in 2010.
Busola:
I gave him my genuine phone number but he thought it was a wrong one. Unfortunately, my phone got missing that day. After service, he followed us in a car to know where I was staying and later on, he kept coming to the house.
Why didn’t you attend to him the first day?
Busola:
I was not in a good mood that day. I went to church with a dampened spirit. I agreed to attend the service that day because I was encouraged to do so; it wasn’t just a good day for me.
How did the courtship fare?
Timi:
Initially, she suggested that we remained friends. I was afraid she could end up placing me in the ‘friend zone.’ I begged her to allow us move beyond friendship to lovers but she insisted. This was after more than a year. I patiently waited because I knew what I wanted.
Busola:
We courted for two years and some months. I never knew I could get married to someone in the entertainment industry. I felt they were not serious-minded people.
Why is Timi an exception?
Busola:
While he kept asking me out, I realized he was different from other artistes. He turned out to be a wonderful person.
Did you have the conventional proposal?
Timi:
I went to visit her and then put the ring in an empty plate of food. I was a little scared that she might say no but at the same time, I was convinced it was time to do it.
Busola:
It happened early in the morning. He said he wanted to make me breakfast in bed then he came with the plate covered and stayed a few minutes. I wasn’t expecting anything more than noodles but he opened the plate and brought out a ring.
What is that thing you would love to change about each other?
Busola:
He stays on the phone for too long. I want him to spend more time with me instead of being on the phone.
Timi:
She should be fast when we are going out and apply her make-up hurriedly.
How do you manage disagreements?
Busola:
We both apologise.
Timi:
Whoever is at fault apologizes first and more often than not, she does. I also do occasionally.
Do you two run a joint account?
Busola:
No, we trust each other and don’t need to show each other our bank statements.
Timi:
We don’t have joint account but monthly budgets. We have different accounts for different things and support each other financially
