The Bible says “he who finds a wife, finds a good thing.” This was the case of top Nigerian and JAGUDA blogger, Idoko Victor Salihu.
Popularly known as DJ Ruffee or Jaguda Pikin, the blogger wedded on the 5th of September, to Manya Lar who is now Manya Idoko Salihu.
It was a colourful wedding as friends of the bride and groom graced the event in their black attire looking all dapper.
The couples met on the 7th of September 2018, which happened to be the grooms (Idoko) birthday. Mrs Salihu explained that it was fate that brought them together.
“We met in 2018 on the 7th of September actually makes it 2 years Today. He is birthday mates & family friends with one of my best girls. I like to think it was fate.”
The proposal was not what a lot of ladies would have expected. According to Mrs Salihu, she screamed a bit.
“He proposed to me in his family house, in the presence of his parents and siblings. I mean we had talked about getting married and I honestly didn’t think he could surprise me😆. But alas he shocked me, I am ashamed to admit I screamed a little (just tintili o🙈).”
A TALE OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP
“He is focused, very intelligent, super hardworking, he loves God & he has a teachable spirit (this was one of my major criterias for a life partner),” she spoke kind words about her husband.
From the groom, he explained why it was important to marry your friend. He says his wife (Manya) is not only beautiful on the inside but also on the outside.
“I’ve always heard people emphasize the importance of marrying ’your friend’ and I’m beginning to understand why it’s a pertinent argument.
“Manya’s ability to let herself grow, the effort she puts into this relationship, her maturity, and how she doesn’t judge me, among other qualities draws me intensely to her.
“She’s not only beautiful on the outside, she’s beautiful inside too,” he said.
