Looks like the couple is focused on keeping their relationship private basing on the period it has taken the songstress to make the announcement.
It is said that the two have been dating for a while but have always tried to keep their relationship away from the public eye.
This proposal has proved to fans that the Boom Party singer acknowledges the importance of having a family.
Cindy was once in a relationship with Italian, Mario Brunnete for nine years and the two share a beautiful daughter. Atiku has also been linked to fellow actress Dollyiantha Phiona Mukasa in the past with whom they have two children.
He is famously known for his role in famous movies like ‘The Mercy of the Jungle’, ‘The Bad Mexican’, ‘November Tear’, ‘Battle of the Souls’, ‘I am Slave’, ‘Kony: Order from Above’ and he also featured in Queen of Katwe.
Congratulations Cindy and Atiku
