Rufaro wins Boyfriend of the Year award

HARARE - Popular Harare pub and grill restaurant Rufaro Shisanyama owner Rufaro, also known as Mr Shisanyama has won the Boyfriend of the Year on microbloging site Twitter, following  a massive parade of his romance with his girlfend Mikey Ngaakudzwe Chindiya.

Their love and what they do for each other broke the Zimbabwe Twitter trend bar with Rufaro and Mikey becoming the ultimate couple goals.

Some businesses including Road Angels and Manna Resorts even took it as a chance to advertise their services using the Rufaro and Mikey storyline.

And Road Angels@roadangelszim said: “A #Rufaro is great but is he going to retrieve your keys from your car when you lock them in? Or change your tyre when you have a flat in a different city? Luckily, you still have your #RoadSideBae. For just $5 monthly you have access to all this and more Call us on #122122.”

Among the things they do for each other are surprise trips to Johannesburg for live shows, champagne at eyebrow threading appointments, an iPhone just because it’s a different day, spa treatment and a whole lot of flowers.

“A thread about all the cute things my boyfriend has done for me black men can be romantic, love is not dead lol,” Mikey’s story on what Rufaro does began.

“He sends me flowers when I’m at work, the time he sent me flowers and ribs from my favourite restaurant in town, food and flowers how can a girl not fall in love, he even had flowers delivered to me while we were in the club once.”

“The time he cooked dinner for me to cheer me up after I’d told him I’d had a bad day, the time he took me for a pedicure and ended up taking over from the nail lady and gave me an amazing foot rub in the salon, the time he bought me roses to  match my dress, the time he helped me untangle my weave while I got my hair done, this was a smasher when he set up a romantic bath; I swear I almost cried when he did this,” she continued.

“The time he dropped everything at work to come and be by my side when I was ill and stayed with me till I was discharged. When he touches up my make up for me, I hadn’t blended in my make up too well. The time he took off his shoes and watched a whole Migos concert barefoot because my heels were hurting and he know I’d be more comfortable in his shoes, imagine attending a whole Migos concert barefoot . The time he delivered champagne to my eyebrow appointment so I could sip on some good food while I got my eyebrows threaded.

“Mans had a whole two bottles of Veuve delivered to Vault just in time for my threading appointment don’t know how he thought I’d finish two bottles but hey #forcontrol.

“The time he made burgers for me from scratchstuffed them with cheese and everything cause he knows how much I love my cheese, I could eat cheese with everything else.
My man can cook and sometimes he cooks for me ,”

Among the other things that she gloated about was a party Rufaro threw at Shisanyama to celebrate her birthday.

“Don’t ever allow anyone to make u feel like you’re asking for too much. Cause one day you’ll meet someone who’ll make you realize that you never were asking for a lot. So to round it all up, not all men are trash, chivalry ain’t dead, love is real and thank you @F_aro for showing me what love is. I love you my sugar muffin. And yes this is coming from a black African man, and YES he was born and raised in Zimbabwe yes they are capable of being loving and affectionate,” Mikey wrote.

And it seemed the romance was reciprocal as Rufaro also gloated about the things Mikey does for him.

“One time we went out she got me a bottle of Ace at Pabloz not because I wanted it but because she couldn’t make it for my birthday.

“She also got me the Red iPhone 7 just because she wanted me to separate work from her and family. She would take me out for champagne, cheese and cracker dates at the flame...

“She bought me a full on recording studio because I told her making music is my passion. She goes on random dates with my mom and treats her like her own mother. She often takes me for massages every other month just so I can relax. If you don’t know I suffer from bipolar disorder and she always takes me to all my appointments and makes sure I take all my medication,” he wrote including a whole of other things.

Their affair drew a lot of comments, including from popular social media characters, some making jokes about it.
