Singer Tessanne Chin got more than a pleasant surprise yesterday afternoon when her beau, Michael Anthony Cuffe (Jr) got down on his knees in front of her family and his and asked for her hand in marriage.
This happened at 3:00 pm at the home of sister Tami and her husband Wayne Marshall, and a few hours later social network sites, Twitter and Facebook, were blowing up with the reports of the engagement.
Friends, fans and associates quickly spread the news while congratulating the happy couple.
Of course, there were some who expressed surprise, as they weren’t in the know that Tessanne and Cuffe were an item … and have been for quite some time. There have been speculations, as the two have been sighted around town on a few occasions, but “with some people, it’s hard to tell”, as one fan remarked.
It was an elated Cuffe who last night directed friends to Facebook and Twitter, where he said pictures had been posted.
Tessanne, the younger sister of singer Tami Chynn, — who last year wed deejay Wayne Marshall in a fabulous ceremony— is best known for songs such as the hauntingly beautiful, Hideaway, Broken Melody, Messenger and her curent single, Loving You, recorded with Trinidadian vocalist Kes. She has also collaborated with diamond-selling Reggae act, Shaggy, on the track, Never Let Me Go.
Michael Anthony Cuff (Jr) is the son of veteran broadcaster of the same name.
