how we met


I am Adeola Oginni, born and bred in Lagos by my wonderful parents with my lovely siblings: a sister and two brothers.

I studied Medicine at OAU Ife, Nigeria. I am a doctor currently practicing in the UK where I live with my husband and three children. I enjoy downtime with my hubby and kids, watching music videos, soul rejuvenating walks and watching the news 😊.

How we met

1995 was the year…first day of medical school registration. We had been on this long queue waiting to get started. It was my finally my turn, then I realised I didn’t have a pen!  Not a big issue you would say – but remember it was our first day and we were all meant to be all ready and serious 🙄medical students. We didn’t know each other, so getting a pen off someone wasn’t that easy as it would seem now: teenagers still trying to pose and keep their own space if you get. I was sure I packed a pen with all my paperwork for registration.

Prince Charming to the rescue

I searched my bag frantically but couldn’t find it. I looked up disappointed, and there he was, this handsome dude to my rescue! 🎇He came all the way from the back of the queue, confidently offering me a pen and telling me not to get frazzled too much that I won’t lose my turn. Then we became friends…and then…and then😍…the rest is this …23 years on, we are still going strong with 3 adorable kids…Glory be to God.

P.S   Adeola is a fantastic doctor whom I’ve grown accustomed to giving a call at the 1st sign of any medical issue. These range from something as trivial as a rash to cotton wool stuck in an ear😚. Advise on feminine health and well- being are not left out.

She’ll be popping on the blog from time to time on our health column. If you have questions for her, please fill the contact form.
