Bust out the tissue paper because this video of a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha proposing to the love of his life, a woman of Delta Sigma Theta, is too good!
Kornelius Bascombe, a television producer and member of A-Phi-A, had fallen in love with his girlfriend of 4 years, Rachel, a member of DST, so he decided to surprise her with proposal that would blow her away.
Kornelius contacted a blogger who had worked with Rachel on a past photo shoot, photographer Myron Rogan and Signal 13 Productions and tricked Rachel into thinking they were going to do a blogger shoot with them in Los Angeles.
She showed up looking AMAZING as Deltas do and he popped the question when she least expected it — on a helicopter pad on the top of a building.
We reached out to Kornelius and he opened up to us about how the couple met at North Carolina State University:
“I was a campus leader and hosting an event, I spotted her in the crowd and immediately had a crush on her. I called her up on stage during the pep rally to play a game with me , at which point she didn’t know that I liked her. She wouldn’t find out until a few days later when I spotted her on the brickyard again and asked her out to a date to the fair during the annual NC State fair.”
Kornelius is a member of the Eta Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha and crossed Fall 08.
Rachel is a Fall 13 initiate of the Mu Omicron Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta.
We would like to commend this brother for his Grade A proposal. He truly did the smooth brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha justice with this one.
