Safaree Lloyd Samuels, simply referred to as Safaree has proposed to Erica Mena of the Bronx on Monday evening while in the company of family and friends in Mena’s home in Atlanta, Georgia.
The 37-year-old hip-hop Safaree began dating the 31-year-old Bronyx beauty at the beginning of the year. He proposed with a 14-carat platinum ring worth about $175,000 and insiders revealed that he had a hand in designing the ring.
Safaree made a colorful romantic scenery, going down on one knee to propose to Mena who dazzled down the aisle to meet him in a room lit up with 200 candles and filled 20,000 rose petals and 200 candles. And there was a topping, the R&B sensation group 112 were singing “Cupid” and “Crazy Over You” with a live band in the background, and as she said “YES” there were fireworks going off outside.
Safaree must have been looking forward to that moment as he tweeted some time back about buying an engagement ring for a wife to be to his followers. In the tweet, he was excited about icing the wife to be up with the “baddest rock”.
I’m seriously about to buy an engagement ring and pray that will bring the spirit of bringing my wife to be into my life!! Who ever she is will have the baddest rock a finger can hold‼️ I just wanna ice her up ❤️
