Mention a celebrity couple with a love that blossoms everyday and you have, Timi Dakolo.

The R&B singer and his wife, Busola are one happy couple with their 3 adorable children.

They’ve been married since 2012 yet their union keeps waxing stronger and are seen everywhere together.

In a new interview with Punch, they share their amazing love story and we bring you seven things that might interest you!
1. They met in a church:  “We met at the House on the Rock church. I was not searching then, but simply minding my own business when I spotted her.I was standing behind the choristers on the podium when I sighted this fine girl. I went to speak to her by asking her why she was frowning in church.”

2. Their first conversation was kinda cold:  I remember saying, ‘Hi, my name is Timi Dakolo,’ and she said, ‘and so?’

3. She gave him a fake phone number: “You would not believe that she gave me a fake number and I started searching for her every Sunday until I finally caught up with her and challenged her for giving me a wrong number. It was my lucky day because that was how we started talking. This was in 2010.”

Busola says “I gave him my genuine phone number but he thought it was a wrong one. Unfortunately, my phone got missing that day. After service, he followed us in a car to know where I was staying and later on, he kept coming to the house. While he kept asking me out, I realised he was different from other artistes. He turned out to be a wonderful person.”

4. Their proposal story is unusual:  I went to visit her and then put the ring in an empty plate of food. I was a little scared that she might say no but at the same time, I was convinced it was time to do it.”

Busola says: “It happened early in the morning. He said he wanted to make me breakfast in bed then he came with the plate covered and stayed a few minutes. I wasn’t expecting anything more than noodles but he opened the plate and brought out a ring.”

5. Timi Dakolo witnessed the birth of their three kids:  The arrival of our children. I have always been in the labour room. I was the first person who carried my third child when she was born.

6. They enjoy travelling together: Other memorable moments include our travels, our ‘alone time’ at home with and without the children. It has been a beautiful journey thus far and I have learnt much being a father and husband. I also feel the collective responsibility of not having to think for only you alone any longer, is a high point of my marriage. You can’t just wake up and go out on your own. When I stay outside for a long time, my wife would call me up and sarcastically say, ‘greet those people wey dey there with you for me o. Its past 11pm greet them goodnight.’ It has been a jolly ride with ups and downs.”

7.  They love each other yet don’t a run joint account:No, we trust each other and don’t need to show each other our bank statements. We don’t have joint account but monthly budgets. We have different accounts for different things and support each other financially.

8. What they will love to change about each other:

Busola: “He stays on the phone for too long. I want him to spend more time with me instead of being on the phone.”
Timi: “She should be fast when we are going out and apply her make-up hurriedly.”
