She meets a Wyoming cowboy, he meets a Nigerian princess... the rest is history!
Of course, this is a brief recount of the love story between Odeon & Zeb as witnessed by me, Odeon's twin sister. About 6 years ago (~2009), Od was asked about the physical appearance of her ideal man. She said, "6 feet tall, muscular, black chocolate....". A year or so later, I noticed one oyibo around. When I inquired, she told me he was a smart computer science classmate who was helping her with programming assignments and group work. I suspected he took a liking to her but she quickly brushed it of as "just friends". Likewise, I let it go because he did not fit the mold she had described. Summer 2011, I was in France and on returning she broke the news about their relationship. She giggled when I quizzed her about the 'mold'. I was shocked but happy as I am a true believer in love that knows no boundaries - tradition, race, culture, physical appearance. We all have plans or ideas of what we want in life but God's plan is always the best.
Congratulations Odeon & Zeb!
