Love was in the air for a Nigerian man, Egwu Benjamin Lotanna, who decided he didn’t want to wait any longer and would propose to the love of his life, Vivian Claire, mid-air, on an Air Peace flight.
Lotanna, a former President of the University of Benin Students’ Union Government, popped the question to his longtime lover on Friday, during a flight from Benin City to Lagos State.
In a video obtained by source, While Claire was already seated on the aircraft, Lotanna got in position in the plane aisle with a flower and special ring in hand.
Passengers also teamed up to help him by holding up the, “Will You Marry Me?” sign, while the shout of “Say Yes!” rented the air.
Others held up their cellphone cameras expectantly to capture the beautiful moment as it unfolded.
The bride-to-be appeared stunned, placing both palms over her mouth, covering her eyes in tears.
Once Claire stood up, Lotanna was already on one knee, holding up a flower and open ring box.
He didn’t need to say more as Claire took in the scene, and quickly screamed, “Yes!”.
After Lotanna placed the ring on her finger, they embraced, and their fellow passengers cheered and clapped for the couple as they took their seats.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with source, Lotanna said it took the whole Cabin crew of the Aircraft to plan the surprise proposal for his girlfriend.
The Anambra-born former UNIBEN Students’ Union leader thanked the Air Peace crew members and the Airline’s Chief Executive Officer, Sir Allen Onyema for their support.
