Zambian gospel musician, Chaka Nyathando, known professionally as Pompi, has surprised his long-time girlfriend, Ester Chungu with a romantic proposal that has us reaching for the tissue box. In a double celebration on Friday, 27 November 2020, the singer chose to commemorate his birthday with a proposal to his sweetheart.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, 28 November 2020, Pompi shared visuals from the proposal, which saw him getting down on one knee in front of a romantic set up which saw red roses sprinkled everywhere. Written in the roses was “Marry me?”, which was displayed in a wood cabinet that also came decorated with candles.
The gospel singer captioned the post with, “Yesterday was my birthday but it also marked the death of "self", birthing a new being called "us". @itsestherchungu I love you my queen and I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you. #SheSaidYes”. Ester immediately commented on the romantic post with, “And I love you my King! God bless the amazing human you are!”. The images showed Ester dressed in a floor length red dress whilst Pompi donned a dashing blue suit. The first picture caught the moment where he had gotten down on one knee, whilst the second saw them embracing one another lovingly.
Ester took to her personal Instagram page to honour the moment as well, captioning her post with, “I SAID YES!!! Last night I said yes to spending the rest of my life with my best friend. Looking forward to this new journey and I pray that God alone continues to be the pillar of our love and story. I love you Mr. Chakachadza Nyathando also known as Pompi.”
Congratulatory messages came flooding in, and even saw fellow media personality, Salma Sky, sharing visuals of the day on her own page. She captioned the posts with, “’m So Happy For You My Sis. @itsestherchungu. I Cried Like A Baby Watching It Back Because I Know What Joy This Moment Brings To A Woman And To You In Your Own Journey. Your Smile Says It All. @therealpompi You’re Going To Be A Great Husband, Are We Together. Chivalry Exists. Well Done @therealpompi A True Display Of The Selfless, Sacrificial Love That Marriage Requires. Welcome To The Best Club Family.”
Ester commented back with a message of gratitude, stating, “HahHaha you were crying so hard! I thank God for you my dearest Salma! Thank you for the love! And a huge amen!!! We love you too!”.
