5) 2face and Annie
The love story between 2face and Annie is one like no other. They have been together for a long time and when Tubaba realized that Annie was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, he decided to propose in such a unique way that would bring tears to most people’s eyes. In an interview, Annie’s account of how it all happened revealed that 2face had called her up to go clubbing in Lagos that fateful night and she had obliged his request. She said:
When we got to the club, the place was totally empty. Obviously confused, I asked him, baby, what are we doing here, it’s empty” and before I turned back, my brothers and friends showed up. I was so perplexed that I had to ask what everybody was doing around there and they said they heard we were there and they came.
“Just about few minutes after, Tuface picked up the microphone and I thought he was going to do all the normal hypes he does when he goes to the club. But he shocked me. He started saying things about how I have always been there for him since day one. How I have sacrificed alot for him. How I have cried and stood strong during his trying moments.
The truth is, he said so many things I can’t remember now. He said so many wonderful things that sent me into another world and I couldn’t even hear the other things he said.
“I didn’t even know when he walked up to me and he said “Please, will you marry me?” And I was like, “Can you imagine? What’s going on here?” he was saying so many things that I can’t even remember. It all blew my head.
