For those who never knew that one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelor in the person of Seyi Tinubu, is a hopeless romantic, going by what just happened last weekend, the dandy lawyer as affirmed that he is one in many ways. This is going by how he serenaded his heathrob and jewel-Layal.
The son of the Governor Emeritus of the state of aquatic excellence, better known to all as Lagos, who is also the National Leader of the reigning party in Nigeria (the APC), the one and only Jagaban of Borgu, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; took matters into his hands when he decided to cast away the tag of the ultimate ladies man by presenting a ring to his jewel of inestimable value.
Seyi, on Friday, November 6, 2015 in far away Ghana, in the Aburi town in Akuapim South Municipal District, in the Eastern region of South Ghana, about 45 minutes from Accra the capital, more precisely at the picturesque Lansdown Resort, over a private candle lit dinner with his super gorgeous heathrob as the center of attraction, Seyi apparently from what we heard went on one knee while presenting a major sparkler which he had hid all day, asking the very suprised but highly elated Layal to marry him.
According to someone privy to the whole she-bangs, Seyi all through the week prior to the weekend had been thinking about the different romantic ways and how best to pop the question, so on Friday last week, he just felt that the best way to go about it, without over thinking it, was just to present the sizeable diamond ring as a way of professing his undying love to the lady who meant the whole world to him and just ask her to be his love for ever ever .
For those who might not know Seyi that well, he is the law graduate son of the former Governor who had his LLB degree from the well known University of Buckingham in the United Kingdom. He had come home a while back to do the compulsory Law School in Nigeria, which he flunked at the 1st attempt before sorting it out at the 2nd attempt. He then left back for the UK after working with his dad for a whole year, for his Masters in Corporate & Commercial Law at the same university (University of Buckingham) where he came out with Merit.
And for his hearthrob, who many might not have known too well until now, she is the deliciously gorgeous and stunningly beautiful Layal J. Holm, who is of Lebanese and Nigerian descent and said to be a brilliant Consultant at one of Nigeria’s & world’s foremost auditing firm Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC for short).
She is 25 years old from what we learnt, and a graduate of Political Science and African Studies at the SOAS (School of Oriental Studies) University of London and also has a Masters in Entrepreneurship & Business Management from the University of Surrey.
Seyi is presently as we speak the CEO of a group of Companies that we hear are all doing very very well.
Baring any unforeseen circumstances, what has begun now with this beautiful and romantic proposal would most likely lead to a talk of the town summer wedding that would most likely span Lagos & the UK or a destination wedding somewhere else around the world in 2016.
For now we say congratulations to both Layal & Seyi…….
Now that the news is out, bad belle & naysayers are expected to go on rampage with saying plenty plenty nonsense yarns!!!
