Julian Bassey and his girlfriend also made the night memorable.
Julian surprisingly popped the big question to Ijeoma on board. The babe was moved to tears after the handsome guy looked straight into her eyes, muttered some romantic words and asked her “Will you marry me?”
For a moment, Ijeoma was speechless but her eyes convey the messages of a queen who has just conquered the heart of a man she loves so much. Nothing could have been more exciting in the boat at that time. We all rocked! Everyone came around to congratulate them for taking a bold step towards marriage.
Julian, who is the Head of Marketing for KISS EVENTS, told http://www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com/ that they have been dating for a little over a year. No doubt, they had a great moment together that day as they took time off to thrill all of us with their great dance steps.
Believe me, it was a beautiful thing to aboard a luxury boat ride, which has several celebrities in attendance. Where else do you thing would be fantastic to propose. Someone said, everywhere is romantic enough to propose, it all depends on how the message is conveyed. I believed my friend but not like a situation where you propose to a girl right inside the over crowded Oshodi or Idumota Market in Lagos. In case the girl became so excited that she jumped up and kiss you, people would say “Awon we re wo lele yi?” (Who are these tow mad people?)
