Ghanaian bride Belinda and her Nigerian groom Lekan got married just last year and their love story is too lovely not to share.
Belinda shared their story: "We met in August 2014 at a friend’s birthday in Dubai. While dancing, a mutual friend introduced me to Lekan."
"We chatted a bit, I got quite comfortable with him and started introducing him to other friends as my Nigerian brother (He still claims that I kept saying 'my Nigeria brada')."
"We became friends from there. Just friends and nothing more (winks). I always felt that Naija men were fun to be around but too much trouble to live with and that our Ghanaian guys were far less trouble and much more cool-headed."
"Fast-forward to a few weeks/months later, people started seeing us around the block together often and nicknamed us “The LakesBel”.
"Days passed, weeks passed and months passed and after about a year of friendship, the relationship came naturally. The jollof war was not enough to hold back the relationship. And our friends? They finally figured that something was up when Lekan started siding with Ghanaian jollof!"

"He started his journey to my heart and needless to say, he won my heart over. After a year of dating, he popped the question and I, of course, said Yes! The score is now even. Nigeria-1, Ghana-1. No return match. On Dec 15th and 17th 2016, we started our lifelong journey and it has been blissful with God on our side."
