While the entire world was fixated on the Champions League final match between Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid on the Night of Saturday, May 28, 2016, popular Lagos lawyer and PR guru Ayokunle Odekunle a.k.a Oddy left Lagos for the ancient city, Ibadan with about 15 friends. It was to propose to Oddy’s beau, Halimah, and the venue was the VIP lounge of Latitude Bar, Ibadan. But how was the proposal done?
Oddy and his friends decided to prank Halimah by telling her they were in Ibadan for the proposal of one of his friends, Edward to his girlfriend.
Totally oblivious of what was in the offing, Halimah attended the event, excited about the prospect of witnessing romance bloom.
Then it was execution time.
Edward got on his knees to profess eternal love to his girlfriend, and Halimah could be seen clapping and watching with keen interest.
Then Edward said, “Before I proceed, I want my friend Oddy to say something”.
Cue Oddy who proceeded to drop his glass, walk towards his beau, and get down on one knee.
Visibly shaken and getting to the edge of her seat, Halimah gave Oddy the “What in heaven’s name are you up to!” look.
Not to be dissuaded from his goal, Ayokunle set off by confessing his love and loyalty, and proceeded to ask for her hand in marriage.
Teary eyed, and with her face in her palms for minutes, not believing what was happening around her, she allowed the lovely Celeste 18kt gold engagement ring on to her finger, and as Oddy asked her to be his wife, forever and always in front of his closest friends, she said yes.
