Don’t believe the myth- African men CAN be romantic!
Meet Wale- he’s the Nigerian man of your dreams.Why? Because he’d go to any lengths to get you the wedding proposal that you’ve always dreamed of.
A US based Nigerian man, Wale surprised his girlfriend of one year- Dami after proposing to her in her favourite city in the world- New York City.
The surprise proposal which has already gone viral on social media involved a flash mob and the bride to be’s friends and family. The epic proposal is one of many recent tear jacking proposals by black men who have been hitherto categorised as unromantic when it comes to matters of the heart.
The couple apparently met in 2013 when the groom to be arrived in Nigeria on holiday for the first time in 11 years. After a brief introduction, the pair hit it off and a relationship blossomed after Wale returned to the US.
After months of planning and brainstorming on how best to propose to his incurably romantic girlfriend, Wale decided the best place to pop the question had to be in her favourite city- NYC.
Enlisting the help of her friends and cousin, the unsuspecting Dami stumbled upon a flash mob performing to Wizkid’s ‘On Top Your Matter‘, while shopping in Times Square. As the performance ends, Wale drops on one knee and proposes to Dami as a curious New York City crowd looks on.
The rest as they say is history.
The video was shared so many times, it eventually caught the attention of Wizkid who offered to perform for free at the couple’s wedding! You heard it here folks; if you want a free celeb performance at your wedding, just make sure to propose with the artist’s song as your soundtrack.
This video is amazing. Someone tell this couple I'll perform at their wedding for free. http://t.co/mzORO4V4L1
