UPGRADE! MBGN 2014 Iheoma Nnadi Shares Photo of Bigger Engagement Ring from Soccer Star Emmanuel Emenike



Emmanuel Emenike and Iheoma Nnadi New RingThis weekend the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2014 Iheoma Nnadi and Turkey-based Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike got engaged – click here if you missed the happy news.

However, maybe the saying ‘the bigger the better’ rings true because in less than 24 hours, the SA-based beauty showed off a different engagement ring from the soccer star on the streets of London.

But as both rings have round cut diamonds, it’s also possible the rock just got a different setting.

Either way, Gorgeous! Here’s the new ring with a spiral halo pavé band –

      September 5, 2016 at 3:17 pm

      Yes, BN commenters at work, only thing is they didn’t get paid. Gosh, I’m not a big fan of people living their life based on others though. The whole thing seem fishy now. I prefer the smaller ring, it’s prettier to me. #kanye shrug#.
      Women’s motto now, big, bigger and biggest. With all the extravagant ring, weddings, this generation still has the highest divorce rate.

      You guys really do live in your little world here on BN, don’t you?

      It wasn’t just “BN commenters”, the comments were everywhere and on every popular blog. Even on Instagram, she was getting so much flack from that account @Instablog9ja that can boast of some of the most vile and uncouth followers in the history of social media.

      Jeez! Come out of your bubble guys, the world doesn’t revolve around the BN comments section.

      How about she herself didn’t like the ring ? Probably wasn’t to her taste. Many men don’t know much about rings so typically if they don’t have the girls friends or sisters help choose they get it wrong and a lot of times the couple will go pick another ring later where the woman can choose what she actually likes. That was probably the plan all along. Either way she likes her ring now so it’s all good and for people saying size isn’t everything and the smaller one may have been more expensive, in this case it wasn’t (not that it matters). No woman will go change her ring and choose a cheaper one and the truth is anyone who knows anything about rings knows that ring wasn’t it but he’s a guy so I don’t blame him and I don’t think it’s about stinginess but him not knowing much about rings . Guys if you can ask your woman’s friends or sisters to guide you in choosing what she’ll like or else you give her the option to change it later because many women just manage the ring so they don’t sound materialistic. However the ring is something she’ll wear everyday so it’s important she loves it, glad she spoke up and got what she wanted.

    • Cocolette

      September 5, 2016 at 3:35 pm

      So i see people saying maybe the BN comments got to them. Have y’all thought about it this way… Maybe the engagement was an actual surprise for the girl and Emenike wasn’t sure what she would like so he bought the first ring and then after she said YES, they went together to change it into one that’s to her taste?? *talking from experience*

      September 5, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      Did you see Mrs Chidukane’s comment about her exboyfriend who she exxxed because he bought her ONLY rice and chicken and went ahead to buy himself Rice, chicken, salad and Juice with moimoi and dodo and knowing Emma would be as stingy as him???

    The size of your Rock cannot guarantee the life of your marriage.


      September 5, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      ABEG TELL THEM;!!!

      Amanda, so the ring Emeinke gave you was not good enough? A man even came to ask for your hand and you are there listening to the toxic advice from women who do not even own a bronze ring sef,; to the point you had to ch

      I hope after this Emenike will not treat you bad o! This kind of thing you have done can hurt o.
      Maybe Emenike offered u a small ring just to test if your love for him went beyond ring size


      September 5, 2016 at 3:57 pm

      You had to flaunt another ring for what? To prove what?
      PRAY this ring wahala will cause crisis before or after marriage, these same people who were shouting ring size will be the same to laugh at your downfall. Why couldn’t you see beyond the bigger picture? Now Emenike will wonder all his life if your love is real….

      Nne, you listened to peer pressure, it was a trap to make you appear superficial and you fell for it for all to see!!

      Be wiser next time

      O god. Stop it. How do u know what happened. Keep blaming women. If the man said she should change the ring and ahe refused you will be the same ones saying she us not a submissive wife.

    • Mz_Danielz

      September 5, 2016 at 7:34 pm

      Nwokem, we know you are a riff raft but sometimes pretend to have self esteem now. So a proposal is a gift to a woman abi and we should take anything because they managed to propose to her. And what if he’s testing her and she failed, it’s simple, she doesn’t want a stingy man that will make her a laughing stock buying the most expensive cars for himself but buying her cheap things so yes she failed the test, he now knows he has to put effort, work up satisfy her desires. If he doesn’t want he should go. You might be a riff raft but some of us know we’re jewels

      Riff Raff, only 2% of couples marry for true love, we all have motives. A man who decided to marry an MGBN queen did so for her beauty. Otherwise, he would have asked any other lady for her hand in marriage. Nigeria is still a man’s world, stop judging her.
      The man knows her worth, so he changed it. I gave my husband clues on the ring that I wanted during courtship, guys will just buy you anything. In their eyes ring na ring. Some guys will research and asked other ladies about rings trends. @ Couple Congrats guys, Your second ring looks like Jennifer Aniston – Brad Pitt ring.

  7. Darius

    September 5, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    I don’t want to believe she pressurized Emma into buying another engagement ring because of the nasty things people said on social media. Or did he propose a second time? Don’t ever let public opinion dictate how you live your life. People are entitled to their opinions. You mustn’t let what they say get to you. Be immune to destructive criticisms and live your life.

    September 5, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    I duff my hat for BN commenters! una try o… you guys could change something as private as an engagement ring. But this makes me scared o. should the opinion of people we don’t know on social media have so much effect on us? It seems these days we now live our lives to get validation from people (even the ones we don’t know). that seems to be the idea behind the big wedding’s, extraordinary engagement ceremonies we see. As if we have a point to prove to people. My fear is simple where does this end? I cant live the rest of my life trying to show everybody i have arrived and how successful I have become. I pray I find a wife who understands. so I don’t spend half of my investment buying a ring to prove a point to people who wouldn’t care when it matters most!

      Youth of these days with a lot of misplaced priorities. So myopic, so vain…..

      So you expect a man to give you a promise ring, engagement ring, traditional marriage ring, then go ahead to buy you matching wedding bands again.

      Just to marry you; the man need 4-5 rings!

      Mark, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, William, etc didn’t have to buy their wives 4-5 rings. Ring is a symbol of commitment, not the actual commitment.

      Their wives have helped them in various pursuits to success and Hv been successful themselves. MarriAge, life and the future is more than the size, stone, manufacturer, numbers and or type of ring.

      Whatever rocks your boat!

    September 5, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    Ehya social media and the need for public validation. It bothers me that in 2016 people yield to so much pressure from the unknowns who do not care about you one bit. The funny thing is that the smaller ring may have better clarity and probably more expensive than the bigger ring but what am I saying, our people and their love for ostentatious things, the bigger the better they say. May God help us all…….

  14. L3M

    September 5, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Everybody saying the comments got to her should please take a sit. How about we all think for a second that maybe she didn’t like the first ring and that she voiced her complaints to her fiancé who got her a replacement more to her taste out of love? He probably didn’t know what she liked before and now he knows.

Oya lemme save myself sharp sharp and lemme don’t be like her ex boyfriend that bought her rice and chicken but bought rice, chicken, salad and juice for himself”
    He will now turn to Iheoma and say “Bae biko come let us go and buy a huge ring o before this people will kill me” and Iheoma will say “yes boo, once the huge ring enters my finger, I will post it immediately on my IG for them to see and know that you are not stingy”?

    Nawa for this generation, things like this makes me thank God for my upbringing. Imagine how people can be directly and indirectly influenced by social media. This girl obviously didn’t complain about her ring until people started complaining and in one day she had ran to social media to show off another ring. So what happens next. That is how a girl my younger brother wants to marry has been sounding to him the type of ring she wants, right now he is having a second thought on her because he feels that a girl should show some humility to accept a ring for her engagement which is only for a while after which you can contribute for your wedding because it is supposed to last forever. Sometimes we girls do not realize the signals we send and one day your partner will use it against you. Intimate relationships should be based on what the two people involved wants because you can never satisfy your neighbors let alone Bellanigerianas. It also sends a message that you do not easily conform and you can be patient even when you may not love the situation at the time. I personally find this very childish and living a life for the media. They had better get ready to Wed twice as people will also have something to say after the first. What a life!

    • Ade

      September 5, 2016 at 6:35 pm

      What’s wrong with the girl telling your brother what type of ring she would like? What’s all this accept with humility like men are doing women a favor by proposing? And you said the engagement which is only for a little while, yes but she’ll wear that engagement ring forever. What kind of man wouldn’t want a woman he says he loves to have the type of ring that she actually loves and would be happy to wear everyday of her life ? Sorry but any man holding a grudge or judging a woman based on her telling him what kind of ring she would like is petty as hell. If women were in charge of getting wedding bands for men unseen I can assure you many men would let the woman know their preference but you lot act like she should just be happy with anything since he’s doing her a favor !

    Wow! Now I see why many opt for halo rings. It gives the illusion of a bigger ring centre stone. Solitaire diamond rings are actually more expensive than halo rings of the same size. Aww! the poor couple ran back to their jeweler to get a halo ring because of the opinion of a third, fourth, fifth……… party. Imagine! they are already listening to what people are saying and they are not even married.

My sister had to guide him through the selection. He ended up getting the exact one I would have picked. Well i have not seen it yet since he seems to be waiting for some sort of moment.. Above lady probably picked another ring cos olodo(but sweet) boyfriend didn’t quite get her preference.

    if sh had a problem with the ring personaly, she would ve jejely changed it without showing it off to the whole world…. any one dat lets the public validate your opinion on issues is not ready for marriage….. if i was the one , the reason pple dont like the ring will make me wear it even more. okbye bowshalle2017
