Oritse Williams has confirmed his engagement to Kazz Kumar, after popping the question in a very elaborate way.
The JLS star explained he is ‘on cloud nine’ as he lifted the lid on the romantic scenes.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine, the Beat Again singer, 35, reveals that he staged a ruse for the proposal in October, while on tour with his bandmates.
He dragged his partner, 37, to a hotel in Wales for a Valentine-themed photoshoot, with Harley Davidson, which was actually just for them.
‘I went all in. I commissioned photographers, videographers and made up a timesheet and moodboards,’ the X Factor star said. ‘Harley-Davidson were in on it too and provided the bikes and jackets and lanyards.’
Not content with a unique proposal, he also had a ‘one-in-a-universe’ custom-made ring, with a pink sapphire flown in from Sri Lanka for the jewellery.
Oritse said of their engagement: ‘We’re on cloud nine – or should I say nine trillion?’
They already have plans in place for the big day, promising ‘good food, good music, good vibes and a great time’, with entertainment courtesy of his bandmates – Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes and JB Gill.
Spilling the beans on how they reacted to his happy news, he added: ‘The boys are over the moon for both of us.
‘They’re a big part of my family – and now Kazz’s family. They’ve got to bring some entertainment to the table.’
Oritse and Kazz started dating just before lockdown last year and first met on social media, after he was found not guilty of rape in 2019.
They made their relationship public soon after and have been inseparable ever since.
The Everybody In Love musician told the Sun recently: ‘We’ve kept our relationship real. It was important for me that there was no interference or distraction and we could experience something genuine.
‘We met through social media. She messaged me first.
‘She knew what she wanted and came right for it. She’s amazing.’
