A post by writer Solomon Buchi appreciating his fiancee, Arike, has generated mixed reactions on social media.

Solomon who is a gender-rights activist announced his engagement to Arike earlier this month.

In a post shared on his Facebook page over the weekend, Solomon while appreciating Arike stated that ”You’re not the most beautiful woman; neither are you the most intelligent woman”. 

”You’re not the most beautiful woman; neither are you the most intelligent woman, but like I’ve chosen to never find perfection in anyone else. I put my gaze on you, and with that commitment, we would mold ourselves for ourselves. Our perfection is in our commitment.

Stating that you’re not the most beautiful/intelligent might sound like it’s not a compliment, yeah? But it’s a realistic base for real love. Acknowledging that my woman isn’t the best, but I’m not looking for the best. I was looking for you and I found you. There’s no best, there is just someone you choose and see the best in them. This to me is the real love. Not the one that consoles itself in the faux reality that their partner is the most good looking, most intelligent, most successful person in the world. That’s disingenuous and doesn’t give room for love to thrive.

I love you, ayanfe. I’m committed to you. I miss you so much!!! But my love for you is stronger than distance. @arikeadeola.o”

His post rubbed off on some people the wrong way as they felt he humiliated his fiancee by stating that she is not the most beautiful or intelligent woman in the world.

” This is so cringe worthy and you just succeeded in humiliating her. Meanwhile she’s a 10. Your woman should be the most beautiful person in your eyes despite her flaws and imperfections. Your writeup shows you’re just managing or settling for her until you find your “most beautiful, most intelligent, most endowed woman”. Ewwww, it’s giving narcissist vibes. Sick!!!”

Another Facebook user, Alanya Kolberg, said it was ‘rude, humiliating and completely unnecessary” for him to have written about his fiancee in that manner.
