How my husband proposed to me – Funke Akindele O.

Popular movie producer and actress,
Funke Akindele-Oloyede in an interview 
with Genevieve Magazine has cheerful disclosed how her husband
romantically 

proposed to her. 
 According to the report, “Funke Akindele and Almaroof met
in 2007 but 

remained just friends until about eight months later. All that time
she was

playing hard to get and hardly gave him her time. But Almaroof was
patient, 

always keeping in touch and regularly checking on her to know how she
was doing. 

By 2011, they eventually started dating.”
Funke said “I wasn’t surprised
when he proposed because I am a writer and 
I am used to thesuspense, twists
and plots of romantic scenes.  
Secondly,
if you’re dating someone who plans to marry you, you would know”
Now,
this is how he ‘romantically’ proposed to her…

“I was on set filming in Abeokuta
when he called to ask if we were done. I said ‘No’ and

reminded him we were
filming for five days and asked why he was suddenly asking and 
he said he just
wanted to know.
Then he started asking for my exact location in Abeokuta because he wanted to
send me 
something. I didn’t attach too much meaning to that and just gave him
the address. 
“I called him just before I left for my hotel and he asked for its
name. 
Later in the evening at the hotel, my PA lured me to the lobby saying a
big fan had a
 gift for me. On getting there I saw my husband. He said he wanted
to discuss some 
things with me and … with that, he brought out a ring and
slipped it into my finger.”  
Awwwwwwwwwww,
Love in the air!
 Funke says she feels a deep sense of satisfaction because she married her
friend; 
someone who makes her happy, and for her that is the most important thing.

“We talk about everything. I can talk to him about my job. 
Since we became
close in 2008, he has always encouraged me as far as my career goes. 
Sometimes
when I want to turn down some roles because the money offered isn’t much, 
he
encourages me to weigh other advantages like the calibre of the other actors 
I
would be working with. He’s very supportive,” she says.
