Lagos-based top model Angella Phillips got married to her longtime heartthrob Christof Benauer on Tuesday, July 24th, 2018. The couple officially met in 2015 and got engaged in 2016 but there’s more to the story as you’ll read below.
Austrian-born Christof, who’s lived in Nigeria for the past nine years, first spotted Angella in 2011 at a casting in Lagos but bid his time before looking out for her on social media.
Angella, who’s now signed to Few Models exclusively revealed this to Style Rave:
“Christof saw me for the first time in 2011 at a casting in Lagos but I didn’t see him though. Later that week, he got a friend suggestion on Facebook and sent me a request. I didn’t pay much attention to him when he asked me out. So he kept in touch and kept trying until I finally agreed to meet him for the first time in August 2015 and I’m truly glad I did. Christof is an amazing human!”
The couple who got married at the Ikoyi Registry in Lagos looked very happy as they exchanged vows and we wish them a blissful union.
