Toasting to a decade of wedded bliss, Elsie - on her part – disclosed how she gave him a wrong number on their first encounter at the University Of Lagos (UNILAG) where she was pursuing her undergraduate and celebrated that he never lifted his foot off the pedal in pursuit of her love and hand in marriage.

“My happy place, my best friend, celebrating a milestone in marriage, 10years!!!! Amazing!!!! I’m glad you came to my hostel in Unilag 15yrs ago, and I’m so glad you didn’t give up on me even after I gave you a wrong number. I want to grow so old and happy with you baby. I want to laugh and cry happily with you. And I want to celebrate forevermore with you. Happy 10th-anniversary sugar... My heart is beautiful because I have you in it,” shared the mother of two.
