Nollywood personality, Tolu Oniru, popularly known as Toolz had her introduction on Saturday, September 5th in the presence of family and friends. Since the big day, she has only uploaded limited photos and no concrete statement about the introduction…until now.
Follow the jump to see Toolz’ statement about the whole introduction, and also feast your eyes on some never before seen pictures.
Toolz took to her blog to post the following:
Ishhh is getting real!!
Can’t believe I’m going to be a married woman, it’s all so terribly grown up lol.
I didn’t want to put up anything on my site, but I’m trying to make it a bit more personal, so let’s see how this goes.
Anyhoo, so on Saturday 5th September, I had my introduction. This is where the families of the bride and groom officially meet. We had expected about 100 people, I hear there were about 250 people there! Eeek!!
I didn’t sleep well the night before, because I was so nervous and I really didn’t know what to expect. I’ve been to events like this before, but I’m generally in a corner somewhere just observing.
Today the attention was all on me…and that was so unnerving! I’m used to being on stage, but then work-mode has been activated, so in my mind its all about work.
I was so nervous, couldn’t eat…also because I was paranoid that I would get food stuck in my braces and would end up having lots of pictures with efo (spinach) hanging from my teeth lol.
I worked myself up so much that I ended up developing a nervous tick. My right eye twitched for hours and I could barely stop myself from freaking out….but when I saw him aka Bae the twitching stopped…(and the crowd went awwww!)
All thanks to God!
Much love to family and friends for making it all happen, looking forward to Part 2 & 3!
A big thank you to:
Valerie Davids for the dress she ‘built’ for me
Lois of Prospotted Makeover for the make-up
Lush Jewels for the jewelry

So here are some pictures, enjoy!
