A Nigerian footballer, Mayi Amanzah Ademe Seth, has proposed to his girlfriend, Blessing Karimu, on the pitch at the New Jos Stadium in Plateau State.
The Akwa United midfielder asked Blessing to marry him just before the kick-off of Plateau United vs Akwa United 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match-day 15 game on Sunday, February 27.
Mayi, who went on his knee to pop the question, rocked a T-shirt with the inscription “Will you marry me?” while his colleagues wore shirts that read, “Blessing Karimu, please say yes.”
The official Twitter account of the League Management Company (LMC) issued a statement about the proposal.
“In Jos before #PLAAKW kickoff today. Akwa Utd star Seth Mayi proposes to his sweetheart Blessing Karimu & she said YES. A wedding party coming up in Jos soon.” the statement reads.
