Matched up in coordinating outfits and same Virgil Abloh sneakers with the kitchen serenity as their props, one of Ghana’s most admirable couples of all time celebrated their 10th anniversary of marriage and 14 years of literally knowing each other yesterday, January 16.
In as much as we fell in love with their released anniversary photos, our hearts also melt down reading the captions of love and gratitude pointed directly to one another from the other’s post. Mrs Okyeame, who went for the video service, posted one with Okyeame Kwame fixing her radiant natural hair. Seated with smiles and enjoying her husband’s affection the caption read, “How you love me is beautiful and selfless…for 10 years now, you have kept your promise to hold and to cherish and most importantly, to stay faithful to the end…cheers to us…And many more years ahead. Happy 10th anniversary my superstar and a great 14 years of knowing you.” She ended with three green emoji colors, just like their outfits.
The first out of Kwame’s triple post, he also disclosed how good the wife has been to him for 10 years and as a best friend for 14 years. He wrote, “Happy Anni-versary (her Instagram handle mentioned) You have been good to Me for Ten Years as a Wife and 14 years as a Best Friend. Enjoy today With All My love 😍. I am going to work, so expect Your Poem in the evening. I love You like Life. And I want you to know that I love me better when I’m with you ❤.”
The second post started with “Thank U is enough” as premise and ended with the loving guy attribute to his right-hand lady, “Me chic y3 hot Ruff.”
The third phase of the affection display by Okyeame came with a lengthy post long enough to fill a page of a person’s thesis, but entertaining and revealing enough to keep one’s eye locked to the screen. In some part of the caption, he disclosed how the ‘ass’ of his dear wife carries his wahala. Bringing all to a close ‘I LOVE YOU’ typed by the man himself was transcribed in three local dialects, twi ‘me d) wo’, Ewe, ‘Melo wo’ and Ga ‘Me sumo bo.’
Happy Anniversary to them!
