Enyimba Football Club’s forward, Daniel Essien Etor, on Monday surprised many, after he dramatically expressed his marriage proposal to his girlfriend Simi Silas, right at the centre of the pitch of the Area 3 Sports Complex in Abuja at the end of a match in memory of his late father on Monday.
With his teammates from Enyimba – Chinedu Udoji, Emmanuel Anyanwu, Razak Aliyu, Moses Ocheje, Kelly Kester – watching on, Etor knelt down before asking the pretty model and geography graduate of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria for her hand in marriage.
“I said yes,” said Etor’s Adamawa State-born girlfriend. “I love him. I am so happy, I don’t even know what to say.
“We became friends four years ago and I knew this day will come but I did not know it will be here. It was shocking!”
