On March 22, 2014, all roads will be leading to the oil-rich city of Port-Harcourt. It will be a grand affair of the most epic proportion, a love story that is just about to be expressed in sparkling and romantic details. It will be an exclusive affair, no cameras will be allowed. Only Hip TV will be allowed to cover this grand event, from the romantic behind the scenes build up to the epic wedding ceremony.
As a foretaste to the main event, Hip TV had exclusive coverage of the pre-wedding shoot which took place at Raddison Blu, Victoria Island, Lagos. At the shoot, Paul and Anita reminisced on when they first met and spoke about their love for one another.
“We’ve married since” says Paul. “It’s just now that we want to make it official. We’ve known each other for 10 years. That was when I was in school, that was in my final year. She was a Jambite” reveals Paul. “She was my duping manager” he added jokingly. Back then Anita posed as his manager when P Square didn’t have a manager. Back then she was collecting small fees on behalf of the twins. The two love birds would split most of the cash between themselves.
Anita confirms that they were involved in a lot of mischief in school. “It was fun and exciting. We had plenty adventures back in school, young and very dubious” she jokingly says. Anita reveals when she fell for Paul, it was during her first year at the University. He was a chasing a friend of hers and came to their room to greet her. Paul met Anita, greeted her, and told her she looked like Britney Spears. Anita thought it was a corny line, but that didn’t stop them from talking. As their friendship continued, Paul fell for her. It was after he sang 2face’s classic ‘African Queen’, that Anita also caught the love bug.
After 10 years, the two are ready to be man and wife. “We had trying times but we had to wait for the right time when we are both ready” confesses Anita. “I’m glad that finally we are doing this, and she gave me a lovely boy. The boy is my everything for me. I’m glad and happy that I am finally settling down. It’s all good” says Paul.
At the photo shoot it was obvious to see that they are both in love. They couldn’t stop gushing about each other. “I love him. I like his humility. He is a bit of an introvert, so that kind of got me because even he is a musician, he still has his moments where he is still in touch with himself. That got me” says Anita. ”You know I love you baby, thanks for being there throughout my career. You are the best” says Paul.
For those who wouldn’t be able to make the wedding, Anita gave us a clue of what will happen. “It is going to be a carnival, a lot of culture. We are infusing the River State culture with the Igbo culture as well. We are going to have lots of music from different parts of Nigeria. I am trying to make it traditional because I am a very cultural person.”
