You certainly want to read all about how this love began and how the proposal went down, so keep scrolling to read it all. The undeniable joy and love evident in these photos are sure to make your day.
Enjoy the beautiful proposal photos and their love story just how Motun tells it below.
Their love story as shared by Motun:
It started with an Instagram DM at the beginning of 2021. For context; he’s been in my DM since 2019 lol. The day it all began was when he sent a text that drew my attention. He said, ”I’m going to get in trouble because of this”. I didn’t respond until 3 days after.
It feels like forever ago when I told him that he had to patronise my business before he’d get my WhatsApp number. Something about him just drew me in. We spoke constantly, talked about our future and he slowly became my best friend and confidant.
I remember when my business wasn’t doing so well and this man literally called me every morning to pray for me and my business. He even got me to join pastor Bolaji’s prayers on IG live. We just fell into step with each other, it’s pretty easy to do with someone like him; so thoughtful and caring. Intentionality at its finest.
We’re always on the same wavelength so nothing feels forced or overcomplicated. We simply exist in the purest form of love. I can barely comprehend it myself, but you guys have no idea the gift God has given me. I’m so grateful to God for giving me, my own person. He makes me feel like the best version of myself. My one true love, my perfect match, the best decision I ever made is saying yes to you.
Here’s how Jibola popped the question:
It was supposed to be a date night with my girls. At least that’s what they made me believe lol. So we all dressed up and went out. When we got there, I was surprised because the lights were off and when the lights came on, I was handed flowers.
I was overwhelmed with excitement and so many other emotions. I couldn’t even cry ( partly because I didn’t want to ruin my makeup). Everything was just beautiful. Old friends came, my parents came. My mum was looking like she was the one being proposed to. The whole evening was perfect and is forever engraved in my heart.
