Toolz who got engaged sometime in June to fiancé, Tunde Demuren, explains how she felt being the centre of attention.

"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.
Anyhow, 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 it's 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!
