Following Annie Idibia’s comment on Solomon Buchi’s contentious Facebook post, she has come under the heavy backlashes of netizens.
Her comment has put her name first on the ranking table of the microblogging platform, Twitter.
Solomon, who recently proposed to his girlfriend Arike, shared a post about his future wife on Facebook that triggered mixed reactions from Facebookers.
He described his fiancee as not the most beautiful or intelligent woman in the world.
You’re not the most beautiful woman; neither are you the most intelligent woman, but like I’ve chosen to never find perfection in anyone else. I put my gaze on you, and with that commitment, we would mold ourselves for ourselves. Our perfection is in our commitment.
Stating that you’re not the most beautiful/intelligent might sound like it’s not a compliment, yeah? But it’s a realistic base for real love. Acknowledging that my woman isn’t the best, but I’m not looking for the best. I was looking for you and I found you. There’s no best, there is just someone you choose and see the best in them. This to me is the real love. Not the one that consoles itself in the faux reality that their partner is the most good looking, most intelligent, most successful person in the world. That’s disingenuous and doesn’t give room for love to thrive.
I love you, ayanfe. I’m committed to you. I miss you so much!!! But my love for you is stronger than distance. @arikeadeola.o
The post has received conflicting responses since becoming viral. It also sparked a discussion about “negging.”
