Below is the case of Nigerian top fashion designer, Bunmi Koko who started boyfriend Francis Udom.

In March 2009, Bunmi Olaye set up a luxury fashion and art label with the love of her life, Francis Udom. They called it Bunmi Koko. For two and a half years the label won several awards, featured in several fashion shows around the world, had their clothes worn by important dignitaries, including Michelle Obama. They seemed unstoppable. In December 6th 2011, the Bunmi Koko label announced that co-founder, Bunmi Olaye was stepping down from the label, which already has operational business subsidiaries in the UK, SA and South America.

    It ‎​is a great idea, but our problem now and days is that we don’t consult God in all our activities before we move our steps. Bcs God knows the begining n the eendd n so far they L♥√ع each other everything wil work well

    It is good, but the adverse side of it, is when there is no true love it’s painful when crisis wil burst out and the relationship ended, as for me i will only do it if i marry her.
