The love story of Shatta Wale, and fiancée, Shatta Michy, has played out under the gazing eyes of the public. While some have been sceptical about their fairytale, others consider it a ready reference for the expression “ride or die.”
Here’s a quick timeline of their iconic love story:
1.They’ve been together since 2012, when Wale still resided in Nima. To Michy (also known as Michelle Diamond), it was not supposed to be something serious: “when we met, we clicked immediately and we were best friends for a while. Our relationship was supposed to be a fling,” she told broadcaster Delay during a 2016 radio interview.
2. In July 2015, they welcomed their first child, a boy they christened Majesty.
3. In March 2016, Michy famously starred in the video for Shatta Wale’s “Chop Kiss.” The pair have, since then, regularly collaborated on music, the most prominent being their 2017 Afropop duet, “Low Tempo.” They have also shared stages on multiple occasions.
4. In April 2016, social media was awash with rumour of their breakup following reports of domestic abuse. These rumours were further fuelled by social media comments Wale and Michy posted on social media. The issues clearly seem to have been resolved.
4. On October 13, during their joint performance, Shatta Wale went on one knee to pop the question to Michy. A visibly flabbergasted Michy accepted the proposal, kissing him passionately.
