Lets analyse all of this :
There was a secret engagement in January, there is no smoke without fire. where did 9ja flavor get his gist from- he sounds like he knows her very well.
The baby also happened in early in January ( she is almost at the end of her second trimester)
Its is either she the baby inspired the engagement or the engagement inspired the baby. she specifically said i want it all, baby, husband and all.
The mystery man is obviously really successful. she has said repeatedly she wants a man she would look up to, a man that has his own. He definitely has his own place, her parents live in her house so i dont see them getting busy with her parents under the same roof ( that would be weird)
Her parents live with her- and obviously influence her decisions. its possible the man done some of the traditional rites quietly, they may even insist she does her court wedding before the baby comes.
So what do you think- comments down below
