Former MBGN Tourism, Diana Odiaka gets engaged

The 24 year old ex-beauty queen got engaged to her boyfriend of nine months, Funsho Peters, an I.T Solutions architect and CEO of Infinion Technologies limited (pictured above with her) on Monday August 27th.

Diana is former MBGN Tourism 2009 and former Miss Tourism Africa 2009. Read about how Funsho proposed to Diana after the cut...



The pair who had dated for 9 months now got engaged in the most dramatic matter as Funsho proposed to the former beauty queen on the 27th of August 2012, just two days after her 24th birthday. According to a visibly excited Diana, "he had actually tried to do it on my birthday at the Federal Palace hotel, he had arranged a dinner but when he came to get me,I was wit my friend Nkiru Achukwu and didn't feel like stepping out so we ate in.". She went on to give an account of how her dream night came through like it was scripted in a manner typical of a Hollywood love story.

"Every Monday is movie night for us, and as usual we were meant to hook up sometime after he gets off work, usually he comes back home to get me. But I had other plans with my friend Amaka, she's working on opening her spa in a couple of weeks and needed my help, so I was shopping with her. When we were done, I tried to reach Funsho but he wasn't picking up his cell, I assumed he was still in the meeting he said he would be in, Amaka and I were at city mall which isn't very far from his office so I decided to drive down. On getting there his car wasn't at the parking lot so I knew he wasn't back. We then left for the galleria as Amaka said she wanted to see a movie.

Funsho called on our way there and we agreed to meet up at the galleria. We got tickets for "The watch" for 8:10pm and Amaka got a ticket for "Dark knight Rises" for 5:50pm. The time was 5:30pm, he and I had seen "Dark Knight Rises" already but instead of waiting around doing nothing we decided to go see it again till it was 8pm and time for our movie. Funsho said he was hungry and was gonna go get something to eat. Amaka and I then went into the screening room. Minutes later Funsho joined us, then he left again at about 8:07pm.
When Funsho wasn't back, I left Amaka and headed out. Once outside I saw him talking with Tosin Olukuade (Facuade Clothiers) and Omena Daniels (Bloke Magazine). I said hello to them, gave him his movie ticket and he said he would get the popcorn and drinks that I should go ahead, so I went back into the screening room. The movie hadn't started, Ads were rolling, Tosin came in and asked me to change sits because Funsho had a headache and would have to be going in and out so I should sit at the edge so people don't get disturbed. I obliged him, he went back out, few seconds later Omena and Tosin came back in and sat down beside me, I asked where Funsho was and was told he was coming. I was trying to contact Amaka on my blackberry and only looked up when I heard a song on the sound system "Runaway" by the Corrs and saw on the screen "you have conquered the world with your beauty and charm and my heart along with it...", I was wondering if I was in then wrong screening room until when I saw my name on the screen "DIANA ODIAKA" my heart flipped, I turned to Omena and Tosin asking "what's going on? Where is Funsho?". Then again on the screen, I saw my pictures and the words "please make me the happiest man on Earth..." "...will you marry me?" people started screaming and clapping, the lights came on and Funsho walked down to where I was seated, knelt down and brought out the ring. I was so stunned, I was speechless, I was just staring at him until Tosin screamed "take the ring". I stretched out my left hand and he slid the ring in. We hugged and kissed, people were screaming and clapping and kept chanting "kiss....kiss....kiss"...we obliged. I was so overwhelmed. I am so very happy. It was then I discovered a few of my friends were involved in the planning. Hossam and Ruby Dabbour (caliente), Angela Okparavero (angie's glam), Amaka Oguchi (miss commonwealth Africa), Francis Adeoye, Denrele Edun, Wale George (@walenut) Shola Ajayi ( @littleville of Reel Radio)".
 
The lovebirds will make an announcement for the wedding dates soon.

Lol@ btw when is omena Daniels getting married. I have it on good authority that he has had a crush on Linda Ikeji for the longest time. Ironic innit?

ChichiLuv said...

Is she wearing the engagement ring on her middle finger? I dare say that is the wrong finger, nne unless you are planning on flipping off all your single girlfriends LOL.

Anonymous said...

Lovely proposal....l think in all the excitement they placed the ring on the wrong finger. Your engagement ring goes on your 4th finger, same as your wedding ring finger. Congrats Diana and her bloke.

Truth is all this story really doesnt matter.At 24 in my very opinion i'd say she is still very young to get married.I believe they need to spend alot more time together.And please nobody should dare yarn anything bout me hating cos i dont hate on people i only give the best advice that i can.I know females 24/25 married n still cheating .Kindly read the piece i wrote on francisruff.blogspot.com about why most marriage's in our generation fail even after saying i do in the presence of God and share your thoughts. Anonymous 9 40am i read your comment n in my opinion i think u were too quick to ur response.Yes congrats to them but there is really notin to be happy bout in terms of the whole story i av attended wedding ceremonies every weekend for 3 months straight before n currently two of the people that married back then are seperated at the moment which brings me back to my earlier statement about her being quite young venturing into marriage not to say that everyones portion is the same ooo just a word of advice.

Cute one,she could wear it where ever she feels comfortable,she must't where it where others wear.How ever my advice it that they take some time to discover more of themselves before any marriage.

Anonymous 6:35 AM Yes i repeat 24/25 is still pretty young to get married aving dated for just 1 year.But hey wah do i know right but its so sad that whimps like you aint bold enough to write thier names instead of actually making an anonymous comment which leads me to think that you aint bold enough to step up to the table.Weak ass people like u usually end up at the very end of the line.Back to the situation it totally doesnt mean in all cases it all depends i only gave an advice n didnt expect to get insulted by any1 buh its sad that dumb ass nigerians do not understand the basis of a friendly arguement instead they result to using foul words.Btw u r very dumb to think my advice relates to absolutely everyone.

Yes I was rather agitated by the extra long tale and hyping of bs business as well but think that's the xact reason y this boy is carrying her.bcoz she helped his business or with contacts and guys always fall for such. Girls like her will easily kpansh for contract nd they wud bcome successful.

I'm surprised there iis only one post like this. I guess hercodings were outside of LIBers market. About the Gbenro I m not sure weda it was him or her doing the following either way they r both scenesters

Finger,then she's not beautiful,it's stale,he's quiet so he most be deadly,she's dating Ruby's brother(really,moron,Ruby doesn't have a brother) now she's sleeping around to help his business(how dumb are you really?)people please go and look for something to do and leave them alone.
