The singer shared the news of her engagement on Saturday, first sharing a ring on her finger and flowers before sharing a photo of the engagement.
“The ‘King’ asked me to be the Queen of his Kingdom. On what basis could I reject his request?” Karasira posted on Twitter and Instagram before sharing another photo with a different caption.
“This is the one God created for me. A King I adore for his heroism, a warrior who stays true to the cause, a patriot who loves and works for his country, the one I love more than anyone else in life. I love you King Dejoie,” Karasira posted, adding a heart to the tweet.
