Nigerian-American actor and singer, Rotimi Akinosho, has announced his engagement to his girlfriend, Vanessa Mdee, a Tanzanian singer.
Rotimi, who is also a model, took to his Instagram page on Thursday to announce the news with his followers as he shared a short clip of his fiancée showing off the engagement ring.
“She said yes! You are my everything. My angel. In 2015 I prayed that whoever my wife was going to be and wherever she was at the moment I hoped that she was happy, having a good day and receiving God’s abundance,” he wrote.
“Fast forward… You… you make me such a better man.. I’m in debt to GOD For you. I will pay him back by loving you & giving you everything that you deserve. Nakupenda.”
Mdee, on her part, shared the same video and wrote a lengthy caption describing Rotimi as one who “saved my life in ways only a man appointed and anointed by God could”.
“The answer is yes! yes to my best friend, yes to my soulmate, yes to the love of my life. Over and over and over again in every lifetime. How you located me in this time and loved me in ways only you could is a testament to God’s divine order of things and favor and grace. And suddenly it all makes sense. New initials V.A,” she wrote.
Newsmen write that Rotimi made their relationship public in 2019 after he shared a loved-up photo of himself and Mdee.
