SMILES beamed like the rays from the sun, while the jaws of Brighton Mulubwa and Joan Chilufya were so heavy that they could not contain the laughter and joy that came as they became man and wife at the weekend.
Brighton’s two left feet could not even dare stop him from expressing his excitement as he realigned them to pull up some dance moves, which were not so grand as Fally Ipupa’s, but definitely did put a smile on Joan’s face yesterday during the wedding reception.
Brighton and Joan’s journey from being single atoms to a molecule through a certified marriage bonding, started in 2017 when he was bedazzled by a beautiful damsel he met at a church mentorship class.
Instead of concentrating on his class lessons his eyes went wandering like the Mary-go-round while his heart changed gear to park to start thinking of a strategic manner on how to become a politician and express his manifesto.
Being in the financial sector, Brighton summoned up the courage after finding the right formula, but his calculation was wrong by a decimal point as Joan said No!
Like all great mathematicians, he went back to the drawing board and tried one more time, until a glimmer of hope started to show when Joan finally said: “she would think about it for six months,” Brighton said.
Joan finally gave in as Brighton persisted and went back to her after six months to remind her that he was still there.
And as the saxophone player played the wedding intro, Joan took her steps in the company of her father as they walked through aisle, Brighton knew that six months waiting for her response was worth it.
April 22, 2022 will now remain as a reminder of their union as they go to fulfil scripture in filling the earth and subduing it with little bundles of joy running up down soon.
Enjoy your honeymoon and congratulations!!!
