While members of the human race were busy making resolutions they had no intentions to keep, and partying into the new year, 2016 had other plans. From the local scale of the Olamide-Donjazzy Headies rift that opened the year, to the global scale of the US presidential elections and everything in between, it is safe to say that 2016 will be ushered to the front row of memorable history.
Despite all the hullabaloo 2016 came with, a few moments warmed our hearts and caused some of us to purr “aaaawwwwnnnn”.
Gucci Mane’s Proposal
American rapper Gucci Mane made us googly eyed with love when he popped the big question to his long time bae on kisscam at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game. What’s there not to love about these 2? Rumours have it that Gucci left Keyshia Ka’oir with $2million before he went to jail and she tripled it before he got out. She definitely deserved the tumour excuse for a rock she got as an engagement ring!
Blac Chyna’s Birth Mannequin Challenge
The happiness that overflowed from Blac Chyna’s labour room made the sun shine brighter this year. After welcoming her second child (Dream Renee Kardashian), the ex exotic dancer cum reality tv star alongside some friends and family pulled off the most beautiful mannequin challenge ever!
Falz and Simi’s Chemistry
The “Chemistry” these 2 have is as questionable as it is undeniable. Fans swear that they are a match made in heaven and have even implored them to date. Although they regularly ward off insinuations that both of them have a lil’ sumn’ sumn’ going on, they went ahead to release a body of work that had us feeling otherwise. As part of the campaign for their project(Chemistry), the duo released intimate pictures that had everyone drooling and talking for quite a bit.
The Mcclure Twins (One Minute Older)
We agree that children are adorable by default but the Mcclure twins raise the word “cute” to the power of a hundred. In one of their youtube videos, we see one of them crying and the reason is the sweetest and most hilarious thing. She was unhappy that she is the younger of the duo and didn’t like that the other twin is “one minute older”.
Serious-faced baby Jake
Our last entry is a sweet little baby whose stern looking picture turned into numerous hilarious memes. Baby Jake( as we later found out was his name) was devotedly drawing in an arts class when Solomon Adufah (the arts director)took a timeless picture of him. Besides the many memes, Solomon opened a Gofundme account for Jake and his friends, aimed at their education. The account has since received over $13,000 in the space of one month!
We eventually got to catch a glimpse of some of Jake’s works!
