Our wedding. 2001
I got married to @taradurotoye in 2001, living in a “one – room – room” in Lagos. .
I was 30 years old and had started my firm, VIP Consulting from my room; where I had a bed (covering a hole in my rug) and a waste basket and chair.
@taradurotoye had to go to her parents house everyday to take a bath, because she couldn’t use our community toilet & bathroom. And that’s where our dreams began.
We’ve been through so much and have come so far, solely by the Grace of God and a determined work ethic. So where ever you might be in your life today.
Even if your life seems as bleak as this wedding picture of ours, know that God hasn’t even gotten started with you.”
