She had written:
About two years ago, on one random day I was ranting on my Insta stories about not being able to find fresh crispy maltesers in Lagos (they are one of my fave chocolates) Next thing, I get an email from an Abasi titled ‘Maltesers from London’ 😅 saying he saw my rant on Instagram and he was in London at the time and would love to send some maltesers to my manager or representative’s address. One week later I got a whole bag filled with maltesers.
I was so happy, I posted it on my Insta stories saying I had the best fans. But you were not just a fan and boy did you let me knowww!. Reading our old emails now… I can’t help but smile and thank God for how far we’ve come. No matter how long it took me to come around or how much I pushed back, you were ALWAYS THERE,… in one of your emails you said “I’ll move mountains to be in the same space as you Ini” and that’s what you’ve always done.
Thank you for fighting for us. Thank you for being everything you are to me. I can’t thank God enough for bringing you my way. YOU ARE A MAN ABASI…In the way I can imagine that God expects a man to be. You are a force, not just cos of what you do but who you are inside. You are a kind man, a good man, a man of integrity, a man I can depend and rely on, a man I can be completely vulnerable with, a man that I feel safe with… a man that I love. I love you Abasi, more than words can describe. And I am so ready to walk this path of life with you baby. Here’s to Forever❤️
Abasi also took to his Instagram page to share the news. He wrote:
I’m not the easiest person to love. I’m too stubborn and set in my own ways. I’m always moving, wanting to accomplish more. I often sacrifice my personal life for what I consider to be the greater good. But she loves me. She makes me take the pauses I need but may not want to admit I need. She makes me smile and makes me want to be a better man. She is my person and the one I want in my corner. It hasn’t been the straightest of journeys but we have weathered our storms, which is why I was over joyed when she said yes!! ☺️🙈
