It has now become a tradition!
Every year, Nigeriaâ€™s favourite showbiz couple Tunde and Wunmi Obe will host lovers to a lavish and romantic ball; in celebration of the day globally dedicated to love and loversÂ February 14.
And as it was last yearÂ when they took lovers on a sail around Lagos; aboard the prestigious Nire PrestÂ the couple has announced theyâ€™re heading to the sea again this year with more couples, more music, more comedy, more food and fine wine; and more romance in the air!
â€œFebruary 14 is almost here again. My wife and I are excited, as we look forward to having a nice, fun filled evening in the midst of some of the most beautiful couples any one can ever wish to associate withâ€, Tunde Obe says in a release issued this week.
â€œLove is a beautiful thing; itâ€™s the solution to the worldâ€™s problems war, violence, terrorism, corruption, name it! If we all loved the next person as much as ourselves; there wonâ€™t be so much evil in the world. For us, thatâ€™s the essence of Valentine; love in itâ€™s full formÂ not just for married couples or young; excited lovers. But for everyone who has a heart; a soul. Everyone capable of loving genuinelyâ€
