2 Chainz is ready for two to become one.
Amid all of the lavish outfits wore by fashion, film, and music’s elite, rapper 2 Chainz took it up a notch and created one of this year’s most memorable moments when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend Nakesha Ward.
While walking the red carpet in an embellished Versace jacket and bandana, the rapper got down on one knee on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and said, according to USA Today,
“I want to marry you and be with you forever.”
Despite having been together for quite a long time and sharing three children, Heaven, Harmony and Halo, together, Nakesha was still stunned at the proposal in her white Versace gown.
Ward of course said yes and immediately started flashing the substantial ring to the crowd and flashing cameras.
Just after the proposal took place, the two were caught by the E! cameras and asked what had just happened. Ward said,
“I don’t know! He just gave me this and I just…I’m so proud! I’m so happy!”
When asked why he chose the Met Gala for his proposal, he simply said, “It should have been happened.”
Though Nakesha has been called his wife for years, its more due to the longevity of their romance rather than the formality of it. This special moment will see that change and bring the two together in matrimony.
Rap and hip-hop artists were some of the most well-dressed attendees this year.
In addition to 2 Chainz and his fiancee in Versace, Donald Glover rocked a lilac Gucci suit with a bedazzled Illuminati symbol sparkling across his back, Migos also in custom embellished Versace suits, Nicki Minaj in Oscar de la Renta and Cardi B was glittering in gold Moschino.
Keep up with music at Salute.
