Last week, Instablog9ja (@instablog9ja), a lifestyle and entertainment-centric account, tweeted, “How did you meet your partner?” to its 1.8 million followers.
While some people shared genuine stories such as being introduced by mutual friends or turning from colleagues to lovers, many took plots from popular romantic movies and make them their own love stories.

I was walking down the road 18 years ago, saw a man dressed in rags. He was begging for money. I didn’t have enough on me though but I just gave him the last 200 naira I had, only to later find out he’s a prince. Today we’re married.🙏

I’m from Hawaii. We met at a restaurant. She has Amnesia. Her memory resets everyday
I spent 50 hilarious days making her fall for me over & over hoping she’d remember
We eventually made it work with video updates, married & sailed the world with our kidhttps://t.co/NOcHbPxp3P

At a wedding, a guy saw me & stalked me unbeknownst to me. Tricked my friend for my phone number. When my friend mentioned that I am engaged to an NRI who I haven’t met, this guy impersonates my fiance & fools me. I fell in love with & chose him over my actual, decent fiance. https://t.co/xh5UZA1Qcv

Talking about the storyline of the 2003 Bollywood hit Kal Ho Na Ho, a Twitter user wrote, “To be honest I was struggling cause girls used to date me only for my dad’s money. But then one day a guy with terminal cancer convinced me that one of my classmates is my soulmate. He also guided me over 6 days on how to patao her. I have written it all down in my fake diary.”
Another person picked the plot from the 1998 movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and said, “i used to be childhood besties w her but married someone else…after my wife passed away from child birth my daughter (8f) read a letter from my late wife that talked about the childhood bestie and decided set us up at her summer school (turns out bestie was her teacher) crazy”.
Not just Bollywood, people also picked movies from the Nigerian film industry, which is also called Nollywood.
Talking a pick from the Nigerian film, The Mad Prince, a Twitter user joked, “The mad prince and I was walking down the road 18 years ago, saw a man dressed in rags. He was begging for money. I didn’t have enough on me though but I just gave him the last 200 naira I had, only to later find out he’s a prince. Today we’re married.”.
