One half of the multiple award-winning P-Square, Peter Okoye, last Tuesday, shocked many of his fans when he finally proposed to Lola Omotayo, his long time friend and mother of his two kids (Cameron and Aliona) with a diamond ring and a brand new white Range Rover Vogue worth N15 million.
The proposal put to rest the widespread criticisms that have trailed their relationship over the years. Lola, who said ‘Yes’ to the proposal, reportedly was close to tears when the musician slipped the diamond engagement ring into her finger, and handed the car keys to her.
Peter, who didn’t give Lola prior notice of his plan, visited her residence with the car and parked it inside her compound. On the bonnet of the vehicle, he also dropped a rose flower and a love card with the inscription, ‘Please say Yes.’ This drama was followed by a long passionate kiss from the love birds.
Minutes later, the musician posted on his Instagram and Twitter handle saying, “It’s about time,” and shortly after, he also posted that “she said yes.” He later updated his Blackberry status with “Officially, she’s now Mrs. Okoye…”
Speaking on why he decided to propose to Lola, Peter said: “it is something I had always wanted to do and I knew I would definitely do this to Lola one day, but I needed to wait for the right time. Honestly, she deserves even more from me.” he said.
On her own, Lola said, “it is a day the Lord has made. I’m excited the way any woman in my shoes would.”
The romance between Peter and Lola started many years ago, even before Peter became a celebrity.
Their relationship is already blessed with two kids; Cameron and Aliona Okoye.
A Public Relations expert said that, Lola met Peter while she was working with FKG2, an advertising company.
