We take a look at Kenyan men who went the extra mile to make their marriage proposal special. Some have already married, others are engaged.
- Bruz Newton
He proposed to his girlfriend Wanjiku Ngigi and fortunately for him, she said yes. The set up was beautiful in their house. He had petals and candles on the floor with the message, marry me.
Bruz had freaked out but things seemed to be working out just fine.
His Sunshine, as he calls her was turning a year older so her birthday this year turned out to be one memorable one.
Bruz confessed that he had to fast and pray so that he could be sure Wanjiku Ngigi is the one he would want to spend the rest of his life with.
2. Terrence Creative alias Kamami
Terence brought Nairobi’s Kimathi Street to a standstill when he proposed to Milly, in what led to Milly being confronted by police officers.
While she tried to sort out the matter, a group of friends pulled up with placards reading ‘Will You Marry Me?’
The couple met at Churchill Show in 2013, where they both worked. Terence then worked as a creative director, while Milly worked as a floor manager.
3. Lilian Muli
Sauti Sol singer Bien-Aime Baraza has proposed to his long-term girlfriend.
Bien hired out an entire cinema, went down on one knee and popped the question to his Nigerian girlfriend Chiki Onwekwe early this year.
The proposal, which went down at Westgate Mall was witnessed by friends, among them ‘Night Nurse’ Tallia Oyando and fashion stylist Annabel Onyango.
In May 2015, Sharon Mundia, the stunning and award-winning fashion blogger popularly known as ‘This is Ess’ got engaged to her boyfriend, Lonina Leteipan, a youth banking manager at Chase Bank.
Here is a shortened version of how it went down.
From the Sharon Mundia Instagram account, her engagement entailed a chopper ride over Mt Kenya. ‘This is Ess’ was standing by the lakeside lost in her thoughts when her lover Lonina approached her from her side and got down on one knee to propose.
Sadly they parted after a few years together.
