A man’s open letter to his fiancee – in which he essentially called her ugly – has elicited backlash from Netizens…and even South African star Bonang Matheba is p***ed!

Solomon Buchi has been dragged on social media after an open letter to his spouse went viral. In it, he claims that his partner – an actuarial science graduate is “not the most beautiful nor intelligent”.


In an open letter posted on his Instagram account, the Nigerian journalist and life coach attempted to flatter his fiancée.

Solomon Buchi popped the question to his girlfriend Adéọlá Àríkẹ́ – an actuarial science graduate from the University of Sussex – earlier this month, and she accepted. But the romantic proposal was a far cry from the IG post this week which has since gone viral.

And whilst he credits himself as a writer, Solomon indeed has a questionable way with words.

Read the full letter below:

“You’re not the most beautiful woman; neither are you the most intelligent woman, but 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 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. My love for you isn’t about you being the best, it’s about you being you. There’s just no other you”

Needless to say, the man attracted a ton of backlash from social media users, forcing him and his fiancée to ultimately turn off the comments on their IG pages.

The man’s letter was posted on gossip blogging site The Shade Room where thousands of readers slammed his choice of words.

And right there was Bonang Matheba who commented: ‘I would drop kick him. Tf”

Here’s what other ÏG users had to say:

@Masikakalysha: “I went to this clown’s page and his fiancé is breathtakingly gorgeous. He chose to gaslight this beautiful woman with insults to make himself feel superior. This man is an attention-seeking narcissist. I hope he goes through some serious personal therapy before becoming anyone’s husband”

@la_las_world_: “Imagine a not-so-attractive man calling his fiancé not so attractive …She’s supposed to be the most beautiful woman to you”

@yourfavekeesha: “The fact that he focuses on what she isn’t and not what she is, is very telling”

@guapo.lucciano: “He basically saying I can find someone better than you”

@laurencharday: “Why would you say that? Girl RUN”

@joynerlucas: “My man said ‘you not cute and you not smart and your pu$$y trash and I’m pretty much settling for you at this point but I love you though’. That’s comedy”
