See What Nigerian Business Mogul Who Proposed To His Wife 20 Years Ago Without A Ring Bought For Her

When Ubong King, a Nigerian business Mogul proposed to his wife in 1997, he had nothing to his name, not even a place to live.

Today, twenty years later, the fully accomplished security expert tells us grass to grace story while appreciating his wife who made the choice to stay with him.

In a post on social media, King wrote:

“#WHATDRIVESYOU: I proposed to my wife sometime in 1997 without a ring, while squatting in a friend’s house in #Uyo, #Akwaibom state. She said YES even when she knew that I had nothing. She was discouraged by many to change her mind and was asked a question which she told me “why stay with Ubong when he can’t buy you a bottle of #Coca-Cola”. When she told me I looked up and down, I looked at her and said the choice to stay was her’s… she stayed.

We got married in 2002 and still started by squatting in another friend’s house out of Lagos for about 1yr till I got my #mindset right to get my own house in Alagbado. We had to start with one mattress on the floor, second hand carpet, a ceiling fan and our windows were covered with old newspapers since we could not afford curtains. I worked as a security coordinator in NBC Apapa, bottlers of #Coca-Cola drinks and all i wanted to do was to be responsible to be able to buy my wife a bottle of #Coca-Cola. The drive to be able to refresh my growing family has helped me to be able to buy my wife and kids Coca-Cola drinks at anytime… In 2015, I decided to buy a vessel from that drive and named it after my wife MV IVYKING. Thank YOU @unyimeivyking for starting me up my drive.

    • You said it, one of the very few. Women are doing this everyday, but when the breakthrough comes, she becomes not good enough for d new status or too old bla bla.
      God bless him more for appreciating his wife now.

  • Good story but not a yardstick for others to follow. Be prepared and plan your life extremely well. Have a house before you can be a responsible man.

  • Good story but not a yardstick for others to follow. Be a responsible man and plan for your life and family not squatting with your wife in somebody’so house. Young men should be hardworking then plan your future.
