Solveig-Angelique to Solveig Z. Keshavjee, the full story (part 2)

I’ll never forget that night when I met Solveig for the first time at my band’s CD release party (well the second time…read part 1) at the Topaz Entertainment Palace (Ottawa, ON). I was literally at the other end of the venue and I saw her come in with her, at the time, music manager – a close friend of mine then had said she would be coming to the show so I knew to expect her, but I didn’t expect what followed.

When Solveig walked through the entrance I saw her right away, through everyone else, like they were all invisible, she took my breath away…dressed in a black outfit, (skirt, heels and black top), she was just gorgeous and I remember that moment like it was 2 seconds ago – she was stunning! People always talk about her hair, and yes I saw that of course, but it was her aura and her eyes and her genuine smile and heart…I melted. My female singer at the time noticed I was captivated and said ‘Azim, snap out of it man, we have a show!’.

The band had a media room and we invited Solveig and the manager to come in and chat, and then before we went on to perform they came backstage, which was downstairs below the stage area – it was a very nice venue and had a great reputation, so he environment was good. Solveig’s manager did the usual ‘business chat’ and it went on for a bit, but Solveig and I were instantly attracted to each other and wanted to just talk alone – so we traded numbers and gave each other a huge hug before I had to go perform…I’ll never forget that either.

There were no cell phones, email, text etc at that time…no, it wasn’t the dark ages 🙂 but we made plans to call each other that week. I remember as her manager was talking just looking right at Solveig and she at me, and we knew there was magic…all the conversations disappeared and we were suspended in time right there – I remember being scared too as I knew in my heart, SHE was THE ONE, and always would be…I remember thinking ‘is this possible? Can I know this quickly?’, it’s like life started right there, right at that moment, our pasts disappeared and we started new…Solveig and AzimAzim and Solveig – those that have known us over the past 26 years know what I mean when say there was only us and then our girls…part 3 to follow.

Montreal Expo ’67

Solveig was featured in ‘The Montreal Star’ on Monday July 3, 1967. The article was in regards to Expo ’67 and an event that happened at ‘Place Des Nations’. Solveig was an extremely sweet and adorable four year old and you can see her in the middle of the four children in the picture. I have the original newspaper here in our home, but I have taken a snapshot of the article and the photo that Solveig is in for the gallery. That page of the newspaper is framed and hanging proudly here at home as it has for many, many years. Please go to the gallery to see it.

Happy Mother’s Day to Solveig Zarah Keshavjee

Anyone that has known my Solveig over the past 26 years and has seen and been a part of our beautiful story knows what an incredible and phenomenal mother she IS – I say IS, because her immense and unconditional love as Mom to our two beautiful daughters will last eternally. Solveig’s influence, kindness, patience and nurturing will not only be with our daughters now, but will be with their children too when that time comes and will pass from from generation to generation ❤️ We love you and miss you every second of everyday – never forgotten, always remembered.
