We grew up watching Disney movies hoping that one day we’ll find our Snow White or Prince Charming, only to get slapped by reality in the face, asking us to wake up. Well, two Egyptians just proved reality wrong and slapped it so hard in its face with their very romantic, fairytale-like story.
These two Egyptians are Mina Mustafa and Amr Ahmed; two students who bumped into each other last year at their university’s parking lot. Mustafa had just finished her exam and was about to get into her car when she was stopped by a stranger who told her, “you have a flat tire.” Little did she know that this man was going to be her husband in one year.
After they introduced themselves to each other, he asked her if she was the same Mina from Nile FM’s Morning Show. “I was playing the Category Countdown with Mark Somers and Sally Sampson on their show earlier that morning, and he recognized my name and voice from it. We started talking about how much we love the show for what seemed like hours. He wanted to get on the show as I did, so I gave him a few tips on how to. Before we said goodbye, he left me his air compressor and gave me his number,” Mustafa told us.
“Days after this happened, I was afraid to give him back the compressor, partly because I might not see him ever again after that. That all changed when we accidentally bumped into each other once again at an event that we were both organizing, without knowing the other was involved. We got a lot closer that day, and a week later, on September 8th last year, he told me he loved me.”
Tomorrow, they plan to tie the knot, on the very same day Ahmed expressed his love for Mustafa, September 8th. We couldn’t help but contact the people who made this love story possible, and to hear what they have to say. “They’re a really sweet couple and we are so happy to have played a part in bringing them together,” Sampson told us. Somers on the other hand thinks it’s “probably only right that their first two children should be named Mark and Sally.”
