How do you feel, sir?

I feel very excited because I am serving my last card. She is taking her final leave from my house.

Yes, she is the last card.

How much of Anreti would say you know?

Oh, I know a lot about the boy. He is very humble, cool, calm and collected.

What is your wish for this marriage?

I wish them a very successful and happy marriage, long life and prosperity. I have no doubt in my mind that they will make a successful couple because they match each other. They are very much compatible.

What’s your prayer for them?

That they will be successful and have long life more than myself.

For as long as my son loves her, I am happy I have another Mrs. Nelson.

Success, success.

‘They should tolerate each other’- Groom’s father, Mr. Adeyemi Nelson

Thank you very much.

How do you feel?

I feel happy, elated and fulfilled.

How much of Tolulope would you say you know?

I have known Tolulope for one year. She is a very quiet girl, easy going, very amiable and very accommodating. I like her and I am happy for my son that he is marrying such a lady.

She is from a Muslim family, are you not bothered?

Not at all. I am not bothered, because almost all the families in Lagos are half Christians, half Muslims. From my own family, my grandfather married two wives, one Christian, one Muslim. Today, we have two branches in the family, the Christian branch and the Muslim branch. We have Alhaji Neslon in my family.

What is your prayer for this marriage?

I pray that the marriage is a success. I pray that theirs will outlive my own marriage which is 35 years old now. I have told them that they must strive to beat my record.

What is your advice to them?

My advice to them is to tolerate each other, because marriage is the coming together of two different people from two different backgrounds. It is not easy to change someone who is over 20 overnight. So, they should learn to accommodate each other.
