Abidemi and Akintunde’s journey started back in College. They met on August 15, 1995 at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria .They were introduced by a mutual friend at the welcome event for newly admitted students fondly called jambites or jambitos. According to Abidemi, "as a jambite, I did not have any interest in relationships because it was stuck in my head that jambites were always viewed as preys by returning students”. However, she struck a mutual friendship with Akintunde that day and she described him as a caring, loving and selfless person who did not coerce her into a relationship. One thing led to the other and they eventually fell in love. They dated for 7 years and Akintunde proposed to her March 2002 in the U.K where they were both living. On December 12, 2003, they were joined in holy matrimonial in the U.S where they now reside.
