The Sapele born Commonwealth Games gold medallist will exchange vows with former Super Eagles player Igho Otegheri in November

Okagbare who as a single woman has achieved quite a lot professionally revels in the love of her life

She shares her love story:

“I actually knew him before I left the shores of Nigeria. He is someone I knew through a friend and we were not really talking, but something happened and we got talking and that was it.

‘’I actually liked him as a friend before I left and we were talking as friends on the phone and I was not really surprised when he asked me out.

‘’But you know, I had to bid my time even though I was very happy that he asked me out.''

 Okagbare played the women waiting game, but still is glad that he pressed on and she said YES!

“We are women; we need to do a bit of delay tactics before accepting proposals.

‘’He is someone I really want to be with because he is nice and God fearing.

‘’Those were some basic things I prayed for in a man. He is kind and that is a great thing for me because he supports my life, my career and my aspirations.

‘’I couldn’t say no because he has all what I prayed for in my ideal man. He is a very easy-going person and he does not see me as Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare, but as the woman he loves and I love it.

‘’Most times he forgets that I’m Blessing Okagbare and sometimes I get upset (laughing) I’m just kidding. That is a very great thing because a lot of people just put the whole “Blessing Okagbare thing”’ on their head and that pisses me off.’’
