Twin Brother’s and Sister’s Wedding in Lagos with Twin Groomsmen
It was an interesting occasion because the twin brothers were married to twin sisters during an elaborate ceremony in Lagos.
The twin brothers, Tayelolu Joshua and Kehinde Caleb melted their hearts after marrying their loving twins at a ceremony in Lagos.
They were united in the sacred marriage to another set of identical twins, Taiwo Eunice and Kehinde Bernice Elejofi to the redeemed Christian Church of God, Tribe of Judah, Lagos.
Interestingly, the groomsmen were also a set of identical twins.
The landmark event was in fact a celebration of twins. The groomsmen were Elijah and Enoch Olatunji.
The Tribune newspaper reports that the grooms in Modakeke, Osun State, were so close that they did everything together when they were very young.
They attended the same primary and secondary schools, followed the same course – Physical health education – for their first diploma at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where they both graduated in 2014 with First Class .
They also received a Commonwealth scholarship for their master’s degrees in the UK. They are currently pursuing the same career in gospel music.
But fate intervened in their affairs during their national youth service and, for the first time, they separated.
Kehinde (which is the Yoruba name given to the allegedly controversial older brother or twin) was assigned to Katsina State, while Tayelolu (or Taiwo) was assigned to Anambra State.
In an interview with Saturday Tribune, the brothers said that relationships with their wives began a few days after their last birthday.
Kehinde Bernice Elejofi sent a Facebook message to Kehinde Caleb Ayansola to wish him a happy birthday, an evolution that made them talk.
After a while, the brothers decided to visit the ladies of their school, University of Lagos, Akoka.
As the proverb says, the rest is now history.
According to the Ayansola brothers, they have always wanted to marry twin sisters and they cannot be more excited by the grace of realizing this dream.
“We have a lot of common interests. We share practically everything, including our finances.
We do not want this closeness to end because we have heard of cases where women become a problem.
Therefore, we felt that getting married to twin sisters who also have the type of relationship that we have would further strengthen our relationship, ”said Kehinde.
However, the search was not easy for the Ayansolas.
They met several twin sisters and were in previous relationships with two who hit the rocks.
According to Taiwo, the last relationship they had was emotionally stressful because they struggled with them from the start.
“We clearly communicated our intention to the twin sisters from the start.
We told them that we wanted a very serious relationship. But as much as we tried to make the relationships work, the ladies did not cooperate with us.
In August 2018, we ended the relationship, ”said Kehinde.
But this setback did not discourage these two brothers from keeping their hope of marrying another couple of twins.
Taiwo said they were convinced of their determination as they prayed and fasted for 120 days during their search for their life partners.
“After prayers and fasting, we continued our research, even if we were not desperate,” said Taiwo.
Kehinde Caleb started the Facebook chat with Kehinde Bernice and told his brother Taiwo about it.
Tayelolu Joshua also decided to chat with Taiwo Eunice, after which they visited the ladies of the Lagos school – from Ibadan.
From the series of conversations that followed the first meeting, it was evident that the twin brothers were not disappointed with what they saw.
And when they finally asked the big question of four words, the future looked pretty bright to them.
Although the proposal was made separately, the ladies’ response was the same: “Yes!”
While not turning a blind eye to the challenges of marriage, the twin brothers are optimistic that they will overcome the obstacles.
They said they intended to spend more time with their spouse. “My wife and I are an entity. Kehinde stands with his wife. Now I make decisions with my wife, ”said Taiwo.
The brides, Taiwo Eunice and Kehinde Bernice Elejofi, told Saturday Tribune that unlike their men, they had no previous relationships.
The two biology students from the University of Lagos revealed that they had refused several previous contenders because they did not feel related to them.
But when the Ayansola twins visited them at school, they felt like soul mates and three days later, things started to happen to them transparently.
According to Kehinde Bernice, when the brothers opened their hearts to them, they informed their parents and their response was positive.
“I was confident in the relationship. We have informed our parents and we thank God for giving their blessing and here we are now, ”she said with a broad smile.
However, when the relationship turned into a marriage prospect, they were a little cautious, being students, but they were convinced.
According to Taye Eunice, when Kehinde told her that the Ayansolas would visit them, she readily agreed, and when Tayelolu Joshua called a few days later to tell him that he liked her and wanted them to be in a relationship, she was surprised.
“I told her I would think about it,” she said.
The Elejofi twins believe that God has been involved in their matrimonial matters from the start.
They boldly hope to give birth to sets of twins.
Elijah Olatunji, one of the twin groomsmen, met Tayelolu Ayansola in Anambra State where they were both members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
Elsewhere, Tayelolu Ayansola handed over to Elijah as part of a religious group of corpers in that state.
He recalled that when he learned of Tayelolu’s plan for marriage, he aligned himself with it.
“It may be unrealistic for some people, but I don’t. At that time, they were thinking about what God really wanted.
As they grew older, they came to understand the direction of the Spirit, ”he said.
The parents of the brides were filled with joy.
Pastor Elijofi, the father, said that he and their mother knew from birth that this (their daughters’ marriage to twin brothers) could happen.
“During their growth, we were told that girls would be unique and different from others.
All of this we kept for ourselves and as we got older we started to see some of these things.
Pastor (Mrs.) Elijofi also said that their daughters made them proud when they got married.
We trained them in the Lord’s way and I am glad they did not depart from them, ”she said.
“They should live their marriage according to the biblical doctrines that they are one.
There should be no secrets and they should be open to each other.
And when challenges arise, they should turn to God, ”she advised.
