A Must Watch #BNBling Video! Wale & Dami’s Flash Mob Proposal to “On Top Your Matter” by Wizkid in Times Square, NYC

BellaNaija Weddings

Published

 on

Dami and Wale got engaged in August 2014 with this exciting proposal at New York City’s Times Square with a flash mob – a seemingly random group of people dancing along to the same song – in this case, On Top Your Matter by Wizkid.

They were walking out of a store, then … watch the video for all the heartwarming moments 🙂

Here’s How They Met!

“Sometimes, God just smiles at you and grants you a precious gift you didn’t even ask for. It’s beautiful to have someone that gets me inside out, loves me unconditionally, has my best interest at heart, and constantly challenges me to be a better person” – Wale, the groom-to-be

Dateline

10th September, 2013 – Wale arrives Nigeria for the first time in 11 years. A serious relationship is the last thing on his mind.

12th September, 2013 – Wale’s brother, introduces Dami and Wale to one another. They get along like a house on fire.

13th September, 2013 – Wale and Dami’s first date. Location: a peppersoup joint in Surulere, Lagos. Also in attendance were their friends Banky, Fola, and Morakinyo. Wale invites Dami on another date.

14th September, 2013 – Dami meets Wale at a wedding he is hosting. Even though there are other people at the party, Dami and Wale zone into one another, enjoying each other’s company and chatting intensely for about 3 hours.

16th September, 2013 – Dami and Wale’s first solo date.

17th, 18th, 21st, 22nd September, 2013 – More solo dates, punctuated by long phone calls lasting late into the night.

23rd September, 2013 – Wale returns to the US. Wale and Dami agree to keep things open and see how things go after Wale’s departure. They are both reluctant to commit to a long distance relationship.

17th October, 2013 – Many Skype calls, voice calls and instant messages later, with tears of joy in his eyes, Wale asks Dami to be his girlfriend. Dami accepts. She has no doubt this is “The One”.

17th December, 2014 – Dami lands at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, USA to meet Wale, for the first time in three months. Wale is waiting with open arms and a bouquet of flowers. He literally sweeps Dami off her feet as they hug. Dami and Wale spend 3threeweeks together over the Christmas holidays – their best time ever. By the time Dami is returning to Nigeria, they both know in their hearts that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. The rest is history.

The couple is getting married this August.

  28. Fols

    June 5, 2015 at 11:31 am

    As in Times Square….! That moment when it seems the whole world stops just for you! What a beautiful couple. I wish you all the happiness in this world and the next. You will never regret this day in Jesus’ Name!

    P.S. Nothing this “fantastic” has ever happened to me; my husband proposed to me in a dark corner by my car @ Shoprite Lekki 🙂 but i thank God for EVERYTHING I have. Every moment I have been able to breathe and have a heartbeat and share with people I love has been a blessing! And it’s the same for us all. Thank You Lord.

      August 5, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      I totally love these two so beautiful chai love oh love! God bless your Union!!! For the rest of us single people it makes it hard because you might have a nice guy that is not thinking like this…it makes it hard because it’s easy to start thinking something is wrong (even when nothing is) if your man doesn’t live up to these expectations.
