Àríké said YES. We are engaged and we will get married! On June 20, 2022 (our first dating anniversary), I asked the most amazing woman @arikeadeola.o to marry me after a year of dating, one that came with some rebuilding, intentionality, and obedience to God.

Adeola(@arikeadeola.o) – Àríké Mi, from the first week we spoke by video call, I knew you were my wife. We have grown in the last year more, we have done hard work, we have had extremely difficult conversations, we have struggled, we have unlearned and relearned and we are still growing in graceful imperfection.

Healthy relationships/marriages are not a walk in the park, but it is easier with you because you put in the effort. I have been beset by much pain and heartbreak in my 26 years of existence, but with you, my worries are dispelled.


Literally. The longest I’ve gone without a panic attack was around you. Your love heals. You are my favor and you fit in me forever. I am proud to be your future husband. I am beyond captivated with you in my life.

I choose you, Àríké. In the crowd of others, na you. You are my favor and I never knew how much I needed the beauty you brought until God gave it to me. Life is full of uncertainties, but I promise to keep loving you every day, even when it’s hard and inconvenient.

I promise to put you first and exemplify divine leadership. With me you will be the best version of yourself because I am submitted to God, and in Him I will not lead you astray. I’ve been a shrewd provider of marriage values, and I can’t wait to experience reality with you by the grace of God. Now, I can show it to the world.

Finally. I eagerly awaited this moment. I’ve been your fiancé for 16 days, and man, I can’t wait to build a godly marriage with you. Ife mi. Ayanfe my. Iwo o shey litemi, mi ni yin e nu naye naye, moshe Ileri ko e fi ife mi a to e.

Ah, you have made an Igbo man learn Yoruba. Not only Yoruba but Ondo. My princess Ondo! My London baby. We have a wedding to plan.
