Shortly after the engagement, Rotimi shared a close up of the ring on his Instagram.  He captioned the video:

“She said YES! You are my everything. My angel. In 2015 I prayed that whoever my wife was going to be and wherever she was at the moment I hoped that she was happy, having a good day and receiving GODS abundance.

Fast forward… YOU… you make me such a better man.. Im in debt to GOD For you. I will pay him back by loving you & giving you eveyrhing that you deserve. Nakupenda…”

Vanessa shared the same video of the ring, professing her love for her fiancé, telling the world how Rotimi saved her life.  She wrote,

“The answer is YES!!!! 

A year and a half ago the world laughed at me when I said I knew YOU were my husband only days after spending time with you. I didn’t blame them, after all it’s an uncommon and inexplicable feeling when you meet your soulmate. ( Also they’d met the Vee who had no plans to be married).

On my 30th birthday my plans for the years to come were so different from where we are now, but GOD laughs when we are making plans.Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for YOU, they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give YOU a future and a hope.

Honestly, my future was feeling bleak and I was losing hope in what I thought was a perfect plan.

And then I met YOU.


She continued:

… YOU saved my life in ways only a man appointed and anointed by GOD could. There are no words to describe the power of surrendering to GOD and in this case to LOVE. GOD IS LOVE! I spent my whole life searching for joy and peace in things and places that couldn’t offer nothing but a temporary high. With your love I bask in abundance. For everything I did right GOD blessed me with YOU.

The answer is YES! YES TO my best friend, YES to my soulmate, YES to the love of my life. Over and over and over again in EVERY lifetime. How you located me in this time and loved me in ways only YOU could is a testament to GOD’s divine order of things and FAVOR and GRACE.

And suddenly it all makes sense.

New initials V.A…”


The couple made their relationship public in November 2019.

During an interview, Vanessa Mdee confirmed their romance and referred to their attraction being instant and how,

“It was love at first sight.”

Vanessa Mdee adds,

“Rotimi has more knowledge than I do. He is a guy who advises me. Advice that I have not been given by anyone. Sitting with him can make you think ‘What have I been doing with my life?’ It is like I was doing nothing with my life.”


Recently, the two seemingly spend some quality time on set of the sequel of ‘Coming 2 America,’ where Rotimi is set to have a role. Vanessa shared a flirty moment behind the scenes while sitting in Rotimi’s trailer. In the photo, she’s seen giving a huge grin with the actor slightly in the background. She wrote:

“He made Wednesday bring bae to work day.”
