Kalu Ikeagwu’s unconventional proposal story will make you smile


A few days ago, we brought yo the romantic pre-wedding photos of actor Kalu Ikeagwu and his woman, Ijeoma Eze who is a makeup artist (HERE).

Now we have got their love story!

His proposal story is not our usual everyday story yet it was adorable.

In a chat with Kemi filani blog, he disclosed thus:

When you say romantic, I get scared. Like ‘Oh my God I have to get down on my knees, buy flowers everyday and all that. It’s scary am not that romantic. I proposed indirectly and under pressure and I put her on the spot. Immediately it occurred to me that I cannot let her go, that she is a keeper and someone I cannot afford to loose. At my uncles funeral, when we were about to start the funeral. I was speaking with one of my uncles when she came to me to collect my car key and I held her by the waist and told my uncle that she is the one I want to marry. He looked at me and said, “are you sure? I said I was very sure. He turned to her and asked her if I was her choice and she shyly said Yes. That was very manipulative of me because I chose to kill two birds with a stone. I wanted to tell my uncle how serious I was and I also wanted her to say how serious she is about me in front of my uncle. To me that was more important than any romantic proposal. I am not romantic. I am boring if that’s how you and many others see me. No apologies whatsoever. I may learn in the marriage. She is not that Romantic herself……””

On not marrying someone in the entertainment industry, he said:

“Someone asked me that question before. He asked who would I marry? Would I marry an actress? And I said if that is the person for me, I would marry an actress. The person I am getting married to is from the entertainment industry as well. She is a make-up artiste amongst other things that she does. I got to a point in my life where I was trying to get the perfect person for me. I found out that maybe I was the problem and not the women. Because all the women I dated before were very wonderful women. They had good character. I got to a point where I told God to make a choice for me because I recognized that I am flawed as a human being. I had two conditions that I cannot compromise on. First, the person has to love God more than I do and the second is that I want a companion throughout my years, whether she is beautiful or ugly, local or sophisticated; thin or fat, I did not care. All I wanted was a companion that I will be happy with and God answered my prayers.

Their wedding comes up on the 25th of June and we shall bring you live updates from it!
