"I am married to a Nollywood actor, Ik Ogbonna and a mutual friend introduced him to my Instagram page. He got my Blackberry Messenger pin and the first message he sent to me was “Hello my wife.”

"At that time, we were continents away from each other, but that didn’t discourage him. It took him three weeks to convince me to visit Nigeria. We both followed our hearts and made the impossible quite easy. He told me he knew from the very start that I was his missing rib and that I would become his wife. I guess what is meant to be will always be," she said.

She added that the marriage between her and the actor has been nothing short of rosy.

"I have found marriage to be just a piece of paper that could mean a lot, but at the same time it could mean nothing. What really matters is the type of relationship you have with your partner. Ik changed my life moments after I met him. He always brings the best out of me. I became more confident, ambitious, wiser and happier. It feels like I can’t remember my life before him."

On her decision to move to Nigeria, the beauty said: "I came to Nigeria with an open mind. I was ready to learn new things and fall in love with the culture, food, language, fashion and history."

Sonia, 27, who has a good amount of followership on social media speaks on how her social media experience has been with Nigerians.

She said: "On social media platforms, I receive tons of beautiful, supporting, motivating and encouraging messages from amazing people on a daily basis, that it would be such a shame if I chose to focus on negative, petty little comments instead. However, I do not take it personal– people are mean to others when they are unhappy with their own lives and when they live in pain. It has nothing to do with me."

The mother of one is currently studying for a master’s degree in Development of Third World Countries at an institution she did not mention.
