Woman moves from city to live with her lover in the slum

A Nigerian woman, Oluwafunmilayo Fatai, has narrated how she left her life in the city to live in a slum with the man she now calls her husband.

Her family were shocked and confused by her decision to leave a comfortable house and job all because of love.

She relocated to a slum to start life with her lover whom she settled down with six years ago.

The mother of three said she has no regrets about about her choice to move in with her lover and marry him in 2016, even though people mock her.

Oluwafunmilayo said she worked as a teacher and it was the job that took her to the lagoon slum, where she he would teach and return to her place in the city.

She recounted how her husband was observing her during the time she frequented the place to teach and he began asking her out.

According to the lady, she didn’t like him at first, but her perspective changed due to some new observations about her husband who currently works as an Uber driver.

She said; “It is love. He is educated and an alfa. And I am also a Muslim. So, that is what I want in a man. He is a good Muslim, learned person, speaks truth and never tells lies and he loves me. So, what else am I looking for?”

Oluwafunmilayo further revealed that men who used to admire her made fun when they found out who she married

“I felt bad then but now, I am okay with it. I believe whatever God said we will be or where we will be, will happen.”

She added; “My siblings were not okay with it. They don’t support it. They seldom come to see me because blood is thicker than water. Even my friends don’t visit me at all. My friends only came here when I got married. We just talk on phone.”
