Nollywood actor,IK Obonna’s Colombian girlfriend,Sonia Morales has opened up on how they met and why she accepted his proposal..The 26 year old who is pregnant told Encomium How did you meetIK Ogbonna and what was the major attraction?
We have one mutual amazing friend, a girl called Oma. She was just too sure that me and IK would make one perfect match. She introduced him to my Instagram page, then he did the rest of the work. He asked for my BBM pin, next thing he got me on my phone 24/7. If somebody had told me, I would not have believed. I guess life is full of surprises. Sometimes all we got to do is to follow our intuition. I got to discover a male version of me! It feels too right.
Why did you accept his proposal?
I am a very spiritual person. I just know when something is right for me. I never doubted him, not for a second. He makes me happy, he makes me better.
What do you and IK share in common?
We are too much alike. If we were from the same country, I would never doubt that he might be my long lost twin brother. He knows how I breathe! First time I met a human being that is capable of reading my mind. We share same vision and points of view when it comes to life, love, success and family. He is my pal of life.
What was your parents’ reaction about you dating him
They all adore him cause of his amazing personality, big heart and the fact that he treats me like a real man should. Every normal parents are happy with their children’s happiness.
How long have you been together and what has kept your relationship going?
I have a feeling like it’s been a whole life or two. If you want to enjoy real beauty and power of love, don’t be so busy proving each other right/wrong. There is no right or wrong when it comes to love. This game is endless, pointless and it will never lead you anywhere. The point is to learn how to put yourself in your partner’s shoes. To understand each other’s feelings and to let each other know you are speaking the same language, you are in the same team, you are the best of friends, partners in crime, not enemies.
We all battle with insecurities, frustrations, fears. We all trip from time to time, because we are all humans. But that’s why it’s so important to feel free to talk (not argue) with your partner and let him know how you really feel from the bottom of your heart . And also, to know how to listen, not for sake of replaying or arguing, but for the sake of understanding. We helped each other cure from all negative feelings we carried from the past, we got mature enough to understand that love is really drama-free and selfless and it must be based on unconditional trust. We don’t hide phones from each other, we don’t spy on each other.
Tell us about yourself and what you do?
I was born January 19, 1991, to a family of three, as only girl and the oldest child. I study at University of Belgrade in the Republic of Serbia, in the Faculty of Political Science – Department of Social Policy, to be more specific. I am on scholarship and busy with my masters at the moment. I am working with a non-profit organization for education of women and children in Third World countries and I am planning to start one myself. I also work as a translator. I fluently speak five languages (including pidgin). I am ambassador of DFNG’ fashion line from London. From time to time I do modeling jobs, but I really don’t take them too serious. Not my priority.
Are you based in Nigeria or in Colombia?
All my life I have been citizen of the world. I hardly lived in South America though. I was born and mostly based in Europe – France-Holland-Serbia because of my education. Lately, my route Europe-Nigeria became quite frequent in my schedule.
