Welcome to our first edition of the “How To” series on Face2FaceAfrica.com. Every week we will take a social media trend or anything and look at “how we can do something from it”.
Today, let’s take a look at one story that has caught social media by storm in recent days. It is the story of how one Nigerian man, Chidimma Obodoechina Amedu, took the proverbial “shoot your shot” or “slide into my DM” seriously, and found his wife. What’s more? Amedu was so serious about getting married that he followed through on his word and went from courtship to traditional marriage ceremony in just 7 days.
