Fikayo’s Proposal Is One Of The Sweetest Proposals Ever, So Thoughtful!

We covered Fikayo and Abiola’s love story yesterday and we must say it is one of the sweetest one on here. Imagine finding love at the very place you refuse to go to. There really is no telling cupid what he is to do, he goes anywhere and wherever. Fikayo, the groom-to-be shared how he met his stunning Abiola and how he proposed to her. Everything is just so surreal with these two. Read his story below and their love story as told by Abiola here.

It all started with a simple Instagram page. I have a friend who randomly sends me different pages of girls since he knows I’m not on Instagram. Abiola’s page immediately caught my attention, she looked absolutely radiant in all her posts. I’m not easily impressed, but I lingered on her page a little longer than I would like to admit. I even started telling myself she would be too high maintenance. However, I saved the link to her Instagram page and I would open it once in a while but I just left it at that.

Fast forward to a few months, I was at a baseball game with my roommate at the time and we started talking about our dating lives and if either one of us were interested in someone. Of course, I pulled out this saved Instagram page and it turned out to be the smartest decision I’ve ever made. My then roommate immediately recognized her because they were childhood family friends. This was my opportunity, so I sprang into action. The next few days, I plotted with my roommate about getting in touch with her through Facebook. Long story short, my plotting was a success and we chatted over the phone a few times (for hours).

We finally met, I planned a bomb first date and like they say the rest is history! Abiola, I thank God every single day because he created you just for me. I’m incredibly lucky to have met you, you’ve had my heart since day one and you will have my heart forever. You’re kind, compassionate, thoughtful, loyal, sophisticated, intelligent, sexy and absolutely gorgeous. I love you and I am counting down the days until you’re my wife.

On the amazing he said: “We both love to travel and Abiola randomly mentioned she would like to go to Greece. I’m very spontaneous when it comes to so I figured a trip to Greece would be the perfect graduation gift. At this point, I’ve been thinking about proposing so the graduation trip was a great cover-up and she wasn’t expecting it. I had some options but ultimately settled for a photo shoot/tour of Santorini proposal. I sent a lot of emails back and forth to finalize the details.

 I hid the ring for about 10 days while we were in Greece until the day of the proposal. I was extremely nervous when the day finally arrived. The photoshoot/tour lasted for roughly 3 hours, the photographer played along and he gave me the signal at the final location of the tour. I got down on one knee and popped the question. I was able to enjoy the rest of the trip after she said YES!
