The 8 Million Naira Marriage

Tayo meets Helena in the House of God and stumbles on something that makes him propose marriage to her 3 weeks after meeting her...

Sitting close to her in the church, he looked focused on what the preacher was saying. Suddenly, Helena’s phone beeped... It was a text message. She stretched her hand towards her phone, which was beside her to see what it was this time.

The number one suspect was MTN and their annoying “messages.” Raising the phone, she must have pressed 'OK' when the phone slipped off her hands onto Tayo’s body.

Immediately, being a nice brother, he helped her pick up her phone.

Tayo got hold of the big-screened phone and had a sharp sweeping glance at the message on the phone. He couldn’t believe it what he just saw. It was GTB alert and the amount was #8,350,503.00. Whaaattt!!!

Considering how fast Tayo gave her back the phone, Helena never suspected he saw it. Even if he saw it, she wouldn’t mind. Believe me.

At the end of the service, Tayo 'marked' Helena so closely and managed to start a conversation. It was swift. He got her number and everything started happening fast.

You don’t meet this opportunity every day. A babe with 8million in her account?  Yesu Kristi!!!

3 weeks later, Tayo shocked Helena with a marriage proposal. Helena was a church sister. She doesn’t believe in dating. She believes that the man that would marry her should come straight up with a proposal.

Tayo perfectly fit into her picture of her perfect man.

“Oh Tayo must be a Godly man,” she reasoned.

He didn’t even ask for her to come visit his house.

Unlike others, he didn’t ask for sex. Now, he proposed? What a lucky girl Helena believed she was.

Piam... Piam... Piam... Tayo and his people had come for the introduction. Now, they have the list. It was not that expensive. He hustled to raise some cash and piam! They had done the marital rites. What a sharp brother!!!

He did his best to avoid letting Helena know that her money was the main attraction why 'everything' was happening. This was why he chose not to ask her about the money.

After the marriage, that same night, while they were in the room enjoying themselves, Helena’s phone beeped again.

It was another text message. Helena pressed some buttons and lo and behold - It was the same alert again. This time around, the amount had risen to 15 million Naira. Helena hissed... Tayo jumped up from the bed wondering why his wife would hiss like that.

AS he glanced through the phone once again, he didn’t know when he shouted “Woooowwww!!!”

At this point, Helena spoke up...

"Darling, please I’m tired of these text messages that will put me in trouble one day. My aunt who lives in Canada opened an account using my phone number. She did it in a hurry. But now, I have to inform the bank to remove my phone number from that account before armed robbers would see this alert on my phone and attack me.”

On hearing this, Tayo froze in shock with his mouth and eyes wide open, as he couldn’t believe what he just heard. He couldn't seem to breathe well again...

Any Advice for Tayo?
