3 Black Couples That We Love
Whether you’re a lover or a hater, there’s no denying that getting wined and dined and treated to roses and chocolates on Valentine’s day is something that every girl has wanted at least once in her life. Valentine’s day may seem like a made-up holiday to some, however, what’s clear is that the day is full of people sharing the love. Although we can’t all be lavished in diamonds and crystals, there’s nothing wrong with admiring other people’s luxuries.
Love comes in every shape, colour and size but something special tugs at our heartstrings when the couple is drenched in melanin. We’ve compiled a list of a few of our favourite loved up Celebrity couples. Check out the list and let us know which couple is your favourite.
Maya Jama & Stormzy
There’s no such thing as the perfect couple, but Maya Jama & Stormzy make being in love look so easy. The pair don’t need to constantly flaunt each other on social media to show their love for each other. Instead, they stay strong by making time for each other.
Stormzy constantly shows that you don’t have to spend big money to show affection and appreciation, he generally involves his loved ones in his work. An example of this is his song “Birthday Girl”. The grime artist dedicated the entire song to Maya and the video couldn’t be cuter. But what we couldn’t get over is when Stormzy took out Maya’s weave. Our boyfriends have a lot to learn.
Cardi B & Offset
2017 saw Cardi B and Offset take the crown for being the hottest Hip Hop couple of the year. The buzz around the two began when Offset proposed to Cardi in Philadelphia back in October.
The pair are not shy at all when it comes to media attention. Positive or negative, Cardi does not hold back on the truth about the two’s relationship. She is known to publicly speak about her status with Offset even with rumours floating around about him cheating. They still remain strong throughout it all and we just love how they don’t let rumours and irrelevant opinions get in the way of their love.
The Hip Hop duo have no limits when it comes to showing each other affection. Between the romantic Instagram posts or rapping about her boo on her tracks, Cardi B isn’t shy when it comes to her man. Offset isn’t slacking either when it comes to their relationship. The Migos star has Cardi’s name tatted on his neck and spent an estimated $500,000 dollars on her engagement ring. The duo have both definitely been through a lot, but we are rooting for them.
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
Will and Jada have to be one of our favourite couples of all time. Not only because they are absolutely adorable together, but because they’re bond is everlasting. The pair started off as friends and developed a love that is admired by all.
The couple first met in 1994 on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, where Jada auditioned for the role of his girlfriend. Unfortunately, she lost out as she was considered too short. However, they began dating in real life the following year and got married two years after that. They now have two talented children together Jaden (19) and Willow Smith (16).
Although there are constantly rumours about the two’s relationship status, it’s admirable that they continue to do what works for them and prioritise what benefits their relationship and their family.
Relationships can be extremely difficult at the best of times especially for loved up celebrities. But what all relationships have in common is that they need trust, communication and a lot of love. So don’t stress if you haven’t found “the one”, or if your relationship isn’t where you want it to be at this stage. Every good relationship takes time and patience. So use your time wisely to better yourself and all your relationships will benefit.
