    Oh God! When do these idiots learn? You DON’T talk about these intimate details with the press. It dooms the relationship!

    Not to talk of how childish all of this is./ Love is supposed to be something intimate, personal and special.

    Erm, most of the strong marriages today didn’t start with HUGE rocks.

    Methinks my parents married with lowest carat of gold.

    Over twenty years still strong, the MEGA rocks came afterwards!!!

    Too much oyibo TV- style network, TLC, E! is making us materialistic jore!

    Thank you! you took the words out of my mouth… is meant to be privateeeeeeeeeeee

  11. info?

    February 19, 2010 at 8:47 am

    bola said he said so..maybe in an interview somewhere.

    I watched his interview on silverbird and sorry, he sounded very materialisitic measuring success by the pairs on jeans in his wardrobe, tscheww!!! I’m not surprised if he said the ring was $20,000. Here:

    Congrats to them, wishing them well!

    My thoughts exactly. Looks like he went the whole ten yards for the publicity other than his affection fo her.

  16. Morewa

    February 19, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Wow! The ring really is small… But, hey! As long as she likes it, I’m sure there’s no problem.

    A friend of mine just showed me this new blog she discovered. It’s apparently Nigerian.

    I think it has good prospects.. May give Bellanaija a run for it’s money. Lol.

  17. dlapikin

    February 19, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    $20,000 my foot! that thing looks like a $200 ring from daniels: and I would not even be surprized if it is cubic zirconium…
    Why front? after all, it is not like engagement rings are such a big deal in african culture… looser.
    I even doubt that the proposal occured as narrated.

  18. Lami

    February 19, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Hey! I bought a similar ring at a store for $2.99 😉 and I’m not trying to be funny either. True story.

  19. chima

    February 19, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    20,000 times 140 = 3,000,000 ….. Hmmmm thats is nice.. Then weddin ring go be $50,000… God go punish all of una.. people dey motherlex baby home dey hunger.. ur fada well well

  20. A.N

    February 19, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    Oh whao i have the same ring. I bought mine on sale at marble arch Marks and Spence for 5 GBP.

    GTFOHWTBS (translate acronym)

    showing off her ring like is some 6.1 pink carat $1.2 million dollar Beniffer type diamond ring. I need a damn magnifying glass to look at this thing.

    This bride is really embarassing herself just as much as the bragging dude marrying her.

    $200 engagement ring? see beef oh… lol

  22. chioma

    February 20, 2010 at 3:53 am

    Romantic marriage proposal in Naija? Forgetaboutit!!. @ Morewa, you are right. I just checked out http// and you can say that again…That blog might just give a run for it’s money.
    Bellanaija site is damn slow!***sigh***

  23. Bubbly Bliss

    February 20, 2010 at 3:54 am

    I like how one side of the ring’s yellow gold and the other white gold. Congrats to them!

  24. MiaJadore

    February 20, 2010 at 4:52 am

    Lol… First of all, Bella is trying to be nice, the man said he proposed on a Parachute 40,000 ft above sea level not balloon ride. He doesn’t know the difference, trust me. Also I have seen a 1 carat $160 diamonique ring far better and bigger than that. More like a $5.99 ring from walmart. I read the whole interview, and boy he is obnoxious.

    Never knew there was another Burj arab hotel in Deira. Bohohohohoh.

    February 20, 2010 at 9:32 am

    People, Please cut them some slacks.They are both adults and are entitled to say whatever pleases them dont you get it?
    On the otherhand, as much as I don’t believe the ring is worth 20,000 rand talkless of Dollars nonetheless,if i have to be quite practical it just might be worth something more to them Perhaps,he meant 20kNaira. Irrespective, the size of a ring does not connote the worth rather the Carat of the diamond is what counts which inturn amounts to the worth. Nonetheless, I reckon the reason alot of pple are peeved about this 20,000[?] supposed ring is bcos truthfully speaking, the bloody ring is just too bland if it had some Pizzazz to it we might just have bought the gist. I bet you all agree.

    make the girl try rub vaseline for that hand, i beg.
    meanwhile, KCpresh should be reminded that Maga no need pay.
    It is obviously not that thing they sing that they are suing to buy all these million million rings.

  30. Nma

    February 20, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Chai! U people are harsh!

    But yea, i read Linda’s version of the interview and Bella’s version, and bottomline is: Bella is such a sweetheart, and the Kingsley dude shot himself in the foot.

  31. Nma

    February 20, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Kai, una don make the babe delete her facebook account!
    As of yesterday, she had an account flashing her “bling” as her profile pic, and now its gone. eyaaa, e no good o.

  32. Tosin

    February 20, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    This guy is really obnoxious! Just read his interview, totally classless, crass even. Why do u have to tell us how much you paid for this and that? To top it up you plan to have a ‘loud and classy’ wedding. Of course he’s just an omo ile n le as my people would say, he should know that ‘classy and loud’ are not usually found in the same sentence! Such a jerk!

  33. amina

    February 21, 2010 at 8:57 am

    LEAVE THE COUPLE ALONE FOR CHRIST SAKE( this is to all the beefers)

  34. Nnenna

    February 21, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    You are stupid,insipid and obviously borderline mentally challenged.And it’s dumb broads like you that make it so EASY for silly men like KC PRESH to OBVIOUSLY LIE about IRRELEVANT THINGS and get away with it.


    If you possess the ABILITY to read AND assimilate what you take in,you would realise that everybodys so called “beef” isn’t with the girl having a man.

    Your comment makes NO SENSE AT ALL…as you just jumped on the bandwagon to comment,so at least they that know you would know that you too passed a comment abi?

    Olodo….did ANYONE pass any hateful comment towards the girl?
    Or them as a couple really??

    The KC PRESH ,must have been taking the piss by making such a vulgar announcement,that smacks of someone who is a classic “eye wey never see money”!!

    Men are out there buying rings that cost a fraction of what he CLAIMS he bought his fiances’ YET they do NOT feel the need to shout from the roof-top.

    So if you know the couple,i would suggest two things.and i would appreciate if you pass it on to them.

    A) Tell him to get a refund of at least $19,500 back from the jewellers.(remember i am being generous here)

    B) IF he still sticks to his Bullsh*t story that the ring he gave her cost $20,000–tell her to get it valued as i am sure even her mind go dey do “gbim” “gbim” everytime she looks at the ring as deep in her she should know,UNLESS she is not too exposed.

    C) WHEN she finds out the truth,she should smack him upside the head for embarassing her so publicly—not only by bullsh*itting about the ring,but all the crass anouncement/show off–

    At the end of the day,nobody stuck a finger in his mouth before he started singing like a deranged parrot–and nobody cares of the ring costs $20 or $200,000—THE POINT IS WHY LIE??



    And to the wifey to be,honey,whatever price he got the ring does not matter,but some of us are just mad that he had to make such a huge deal out of something so obviously nothing.
    Your ring is nice,plain and simple.
    And for the embarassment he has caused you,i SUGGEST YOU DEMAND AN UPGRADE.

    All the best in your married life.

  35. silva

    February 21, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    yes he is! i read the interview in city people and thnk God i can finally see the ring…$20,000? is it the rubish he sings dat gave him the moni? 20,000k for dat thing? u know say wen moni miss road wan lie, them go lie add jara…

  36. silva

    February 21, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    sorri i meant, 20k not 20,000k…

  37. beezy

    February 21, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    WHOA!!!!….babe!! u are my kinda woman!!! normally i dont like reading extra long comments..but i’m glad i read this one…
    making too much sense… u made alotta sense…

  38. kechy

    February 21, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    nnenna dear, you are a sweetheart. i can’t begin to tell you how much i love your comment that amina is some senseless and annoying commenter. well, i don’t care about justifying a thing to her/hhim(who knows the low life is kc)

  39. KK

    February 21, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    she is still on facebook.

  40. kemi

    February 21, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    lol…. very funny but so on point. many people get confused and mistake wealth for class…. but no luvie, wealth can never buy buy class and classy is never loud and vulgar.

  41. Faramade

    February 21, 2010 at 11:32 pm

    Ok that ring from Costco aint more than $99.99. Plus tax and maybe rebate…not more than $100. Useless man…why is he telling us the price of the ring sef? Anuofia and yes, it’s publicizing the price of the ring that’s making me rant right now. Money can’t buy you love we all know the size of the ring is not what determines the success of the marriage. Good luck to them…i will never wish anyone a failed marriage. However the dude should be ashamed for telling us how much he bought the ring…bet ya that shege is GL not even Gold or anything

  42. titi

    February 22, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Haba ,in his interview he said he stayed in burj arab,(i hear u)he said it s the most expensive hotel he even quoted the price,i agree again but he now goofed by saying it s the tallest hotel or building in dubai,so wrong……… i feel for the guy but the babe …………..

  43. sweetie

    February 22, 2010 at 1:59 am

    nnnena so on point, big ups jaare…..amina u no dey talk again? 😉

  44. boogsy

    February 22, 2010 at 3:26 am

    @ Amina i am guessing your brain cannot assimilate jack cos no one insulted the couple.You also seem to know a lot about bitter wretched women…well i guess you can relate to their plight.
    Nnenna i concur o jare..Better person.It was the guy that started opening his mouth to brag about his engagement.BTW, he is a public figure so if he is making statements he knows that the public will talk or not talk and in this case we chose to talk.Personally, i am not a ring person and i dont care about the size of a rock and what not… but why is he lying?

  45. info?

    February 22, 2010 at 5:48 am

    She’s still on facebook. With a new profile picture though.

  46. MiaJadore

    February 22, 2010 at 7:14 am

    Y’all forgot the part where he proposed on “a Parachute 40,000 ft (forty thousand feet) above sea level”. To me that is even more delutional. See Bella tried her best to polish the mess on her site, you guys should read the whole interview. I am embarrassed for the girl but wish them well. As for you Nnenna, go on with your bad self! Girl you’re my Hero for the day and remind me never to mess with you.

  47. duchess419

    February 22, 2010 at 8:59 am

    Am loving da comments, 20K? its definitely a lie o. I have my own ring ( in case y’ll think I be hating without proof and its not even close to 20K but looks a heck lotta better than that hot mess she has on. So please this na be small small boy who wants to impress this small girl the wrong way. The only advise I have is ” dear, go get the ring valued at the jewellers o, and see for yourself exactly how much this ring dey cost am”. This should silence him for openly disgracing his future wife on the internet with such a big lie and confirming what we all is a definite lie.
    Am sure he wished the ring did cost 20K but truth is he cannot just afford it abi. Well done for the car o, so Bella how come no pictures of the ride ehn? Is it a JEEP? LMAO.
    Nawa for this KC presh / fresh nonsense!! lwkmd!!!

  48. Tosin

    February 22, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    To Amina-
    Sorry to disappoint you, ‘we ladies’ are not old, wretched,or lonely’ we just happen to know what a $20,000 ring looks like, if you’d like to update yourself on the knowledge of rocks, you might want to look at Tiffanys or Harry Winston, I’m sure you’ll be just as irked. Thats all, plus ‘we ladies’ don’t suffer fools or liars gladly!

  49. CEO

    February 22, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    omg. i cant believe how much hate people have on. if the guy lies or not about the price of the ring, its his business. at the end of the day he’s getting married to a girl he loves and i bet the chick loves him too(hopes so). the price of the ring has nothing to do with how happy they will be in their marriage. get over urselves pple!!

  50. matilda

    February 22, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    busy body na dey worry all of una..idle minded pple,wats ur buisness if he lied?aren’t u all worse….yes he was once a lowlyfe wats d big deal?dnt pple start 4rm d scratch n later bcom sum tin.n as 4 nnena,u ought 2 bi ashamed of urself,c as u carry person ring matter 4 head like govt work..if na jealousy or envy d worry u try control am,abi d guy don use n dump u once?dats y nigerians r backward,they never appreciate their own celeb.anywayz,i really gat word 4 u nnena…bring it on.

    And who is this KC Presh? Can someone tell me some sangs he have song? Ignore the “shelling” but seriously I’ve never heard of him before. He certainly doesn’t make the “money” he brags about from Music. That ring can’t be worth more than $500 with that <0.5ct-looking diamond.

  53. alexis

    February 23, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    i love u Nnenna!!! correct person, i just dont need to comment again as uve done it for me perfectly. wish there more like you.

  54. PoliceIsYourFriend

    February 24, 2010 at 3:54 am

    @ CEO yes the price of the ring has nothing to do with how happy they will be in marriage so i dont see why that liar called KC felt the need to brag..Its not about hate, its about him thinking the public is stupid enough to believe his crap.

  55. steph

    February 24, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    She is still on facebook. Feddie Onitsha girls r really happy for you Ij. All our love and support!. And please people, can we just give the guy a break. He proposed to her the way he dreamt it in his mind. Romantic, and mind u, without paparazzi lying around to witness everything. Class or no class, he got romantic and did it his way. At least a 9ja man tried to do something right!

  56. Steph

    February 24, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Thank you ooooo. Na wa for people. It doesn’t matter the kind of winds the guy decided to creat around his marriage and engagement and this very famous RING. Truth is, He wan marry am, she gree marry am. Period! If he does all their celebrity/ paparazzi hype around it, still his business well it comes with the whole ‘star’ thingy.

  57. Steph

    February 24, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Seriously Tosin, no need to call him a jerk. Even if he lied about the ring (which we aren’t sure yet he did, I mean, how do u know the worth of a ring by looking at a picture. Even big time jewelers use a special glass to be sure is a gem isn’t just paste or a copy),even if u say he is classless and shouldn’t make noise about the ring and how much he bought it, he still doesn’t deserve to be called a jerk. It’s not like he got her pregnant or anything bad. For God’s sakes people he just proposed allbeit in his own way. At least he did something romantic for a change in the 9ja engagement scene. all of u claiming to have rings ‘ how did your man propose even if it with a cheap or expensive ring?’

  58. matilda

    February 24, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    u 2 korrect steph..dis gals r just busybodies.ij go gal.i dnt tink anyman has ever proposed 2 them.anywayz,wish d couples all d best..tada

  59. Bola #1

    February 24, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    reading the comments are entertaining as usual.
    what really matters is not all the hype or noise going on now, but what happens after their marriage, and making it last

  60. aiphy

    February 25, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    My dear your reply is way too long … i can imagine how bitter you are towards this little issue of ring for u too reply with the book of psalms … wat if he lied about the cost of ring na your bizness ..
