A 23-year-old Nigerian who is all set to marry his soulmate, a 46-year-old American woman he met on Instagram, claims he has made the choice of marrying a foreigner because Nigerian ladies know nothing about true love.
According to Isa Sulaiman, he fell in love with Janine Sanchez because she’s real and pure, unlike Nigerian women who know very little about true love.
He spoke to BBC Pidgin: “Di truth be say our women no sabi wetin be true love, it is either dem dey eye somthin or dem get plans but if white woman tell you say she love you, bros she mean am from di bottom of her heart.”
He added: “We meet after i start to follow her for instagram and if she post pishure i go like am, den afta small time I come see say some Yahoo boys dey try scam her, so I send her message say make she no mind those pipo so dat tin come attract her, e show her say na honest pesin I be. Na dat one first attract her.
“From dia we come dey chat wella, video calls and na all dat one lead us to this level wey we dey.”
The lady has flown into Nigeria to meet Isa’s family and the couple are planning to get married in March.
She would fly back to the U.S after this visit and return in March for the wedding.
She also spoke to BBC Pidgin: “I don meet im family more dan 100 of dem and e sweet me say all of dem gree for us to marry, many of dem neva see white woman before, na so dem come dey play wit my hair, dey touch my hand.”
Jeanine is a chef whilst Isa is a student and aspiring footballer.
After the wedding, they would fly to the U.S.
