Describing her love story Adaure Achumba narrated that her husband proposed on the same spot they met many years back. She said:
“He proposed on the spot we first met in fall 1999 by the volleyball court at Criage Hall dorm UNC Chapel Hill. I started randomly and typically started smack talking with his then random college kid who said to me “Girl I’m Gonna Marry You” and in dismissed him in a very Nigerian manner just thinking he was just joking around and flattering me…really who says that on first meeting”
Adaure Achumba added that: “We became friends and hung out in the same crew. We went bar hopping on Franklin Street and a few games. I failed my first semester cos i was always hanging out with him and the rugby boys at the pit in front of Lenoir Cafeteria. I had a crush on him and enjoyed his company and he had a crush on me but i was just too green in the romance department to read the signs. The biggest irony was that I dated another guy with the same name but we moved on, graduated but still remained friends. Fast forward to Fall 2014 when we met again. I even got punked for the proposal.”
