They met in University

"When he saw me on that faithful day he immediately walked up to me but I was a bit cold of course I had to do "shakara". I gave him a wrong name and tried to dismiss him but he insisted and requested for my number and we spoke a few times on the phone."

Prisca and Oliver

They started dating 10 months after they first met.

"Fast forward to October 2009, we met again in the same spot that we did the first time and while shaking hands we couldn't stop staring at each other and smiling; right there I knew he was the one. By December, 2009, we started dating and it's been bliss since then."
