Ex-Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria Adaeze Igwe officially engaged to Everton footballer Joseph Yobo

adaeze igwe and joseph yobo engagedMonths after they were first spotted at Rita Dominic’s birthday party and weeks after the news of their engagement broke via Stella Dimoko-Korkus, Everton FC defender Joseph Yobo and 2008 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria Adaeze Igwe have officially announced their engagement. Rather than going for a traditional engagement ring, Yobo presented Adaeze with a unique ring – a diamond encrusted band with a heart shaped attachment.
The bride-to-be Adaeze represented Nigeria at the 2008 Miss World competition and she recently completed a course at the New York Film Academy while the prospective groom is set to play in Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier against Tunisia today.
Cute couple! Wishing them all the best.

    hmmm….we’re watching…

  • bukky November 14, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    lol…is that a paparazzi shot of them?

  • wienna November 14, 2009 at 3:58 pm

    Congrats to them. But i can’t help but feel this is all for ‘show’ or they’re trying to imitate ‘WAGs & their boyfriends/hubbies’.

  • MiaJadore November 14, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    lol….I know right, very funny.

  • El November 14, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    She is like 19…this jus seems all so wrong(my opinion!)

    All the best though to her and her hubby-to-be

  • chick November 14, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    pple stop hating. appreciate the fact that unlike most other footballer brothers, he is going back 2 his roots. wishing them all the best.

  • az in… November 14, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    lol. I was thnkin the same thing

  • az in… November 14, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    I like her yellow hand 🙂

  • Kemchi November 15, 2009 at 12:42 am

    Like seriously tho, I tire o! Some people sha never have anything positive to say, abi na beef?

  • Rimzy November 15, 2009 at 1:42 am

    So wat if she is 19 she is legal period….

  • Olivia November 15, 2009 at 1:44 am

    Congrats to the both! Cute couple…I pray their love holds strong.

    As someone that got married at 19 to her sweetheart and first love
    (almost 2 decades of marriage with lots of beautiful memories, wonderful kids and a love waxing stronger), I can attest to the fact that age is no prerequisite for a long lasting loving relationship…19, 25, 30, 35…e no matter. Nothing like the ‘right’ age just the ‘right’ person…ask all the divorced and seperated women left, right and centre.

    One thing I know though, most people in a loving relationship are just happy to see a couple in love. You can almost tell if someone is still searching for true love or has been badly hurt by the way they react to other people/couples’ joy….Keep searching and be loving. Bitterness will only attract its kind.
    Adaeze and Joe…enjoy your love, life is short!

  • Buttermint November 15, 2009 at 1:50 am

    ok…i thot the exact same thing…hold on..so do they take pics of themselves and send it to blogs and stuff to post…cos m confused…

    Cute couple though..i dont know what the whole fuss about them is all about…..are they supposed to be like the ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRADPITT of naija or what

    BTW…the ring is FAB!!!…CONGRATS

  • 9JA’s OT November 15, 2009 at 7:57 am

    i am so happy for you guys, but these subtle yet profound publicity is very foolish if you ask me, this is like self publicity at its highest, i tot the balloon boy case was bad, this is terrible. why would u want the whole world to know what is happening btwn both of you, that is the begining of marriage crashing, you better go and read about how Jada and Will keep their marriage from public eye before it is too late.
    my two cent.

  • darkandy November 15, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    Here we go again,typical fame hunters,soon the whole wag madness will start in Nigeria when we are already tired of it in Uk, yawn, next story pls

  • lolly November 15, 2009 at 4:12 pm

  • sweetie November 15, 2009 at 5:05 pm

    my point exactly, congrats to the couple jaare,

    p.s. i love that ring!!!!

  • kay November 15, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    but why did she have to take the picture of the engagement ring herself to be shown to the world??i thot these things are s’posed to be caught by paps by mistake?? lol..anyways if she is 19 then i am not overly surprised..typical of a 19yrs old.lets give her a break though.and pray it works out for them. ( hoping she is going into it for the right reasons!) love is a beautiful thing and everybody deserves it…

  • Chiangel November 15, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    I’m in love with that ring wow! It’s different. I hope I don’t run into her because I go snatch am run LOL! Congrats to them. I wish them the best in life and most importantly LOVE. They look cute together.

  • duchess419 November 16, 2009 at 9:35 am

    well done to them both and age is just a number abi? abeg, make we wish them happiness and long successful marriage. Am very happy he went back home to find a wife and not take a white girl again. All the best and yes love the ring too and they couple are rocking, keep it up.

  • michelle November 16, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    well we’ll definitely be rooting for the marriage to succeed and pray they grow old together but as per entertainment they could become the country’s sweetheart especially like nick and jessica…am sure pple would love to see them whilst hoping at the same time that they go all the way…

  • Kpakpando November 16, 2009 at 8:47 pm

    See ugly men, it’s necessary to have money o, that way you can land fine chicks like this Joseph Yobo. Plenty of ashewos/nollywood actresses must be in mourning now sha. I doubt Adaeze and her equally money conscious mother will allow him to keep being a generous benefactor to those types.

  • Lagosian November 16, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    Nigeria played Kenya not Tunisia.

  • dd November 16, 2009 at 11:08 pm

  • Onylove November 20, 2009 at 2:06 pm

    Na wa o! I dont understand women one bit. God help me. If you hear them (the educated ones) discussing and hating “illiterate” men, and how they eventually fall like packs of card before “Olodo” money bags, you’ll marvel. Why are they like that?

  • black nubia November 22, 2009 at 11:39 pm

    the ring is nice,real nice..i wish them the best,if it does not last i wont be surprised tho.cute couple..
