As fans may know comedian Blackson has the reputation of being “The African King of Comedy” (via World Celebs) and now stars in Hollywood movies like Coming 2 America. It was not an easy road for the now celebrity though. He moved to Philadelphia from Ghana in 1987, starting to perform at comedy clubs in 1992 until he was noticed by Ice Cube.
The rapper gave him a role in his 2000 movie Next Friday, and from then on what followed is history as they say.
On the other end of the rainbow we have his girlfriend, well now fiancé Rada, is a real estate agent and model, and with 175k Instagram followers, her fame is only growing. Rada recently revealed that she comes from a Cambodian descent . Although there are not a lot of details about how exactly Blackson and Rada’s relationship got started, a Valentine’s Day Instagram post proves they’ve been together for over two years.
Rada captioned a since-deleted photo with “I’m glad we both swiped right,” suggesting that the pair met on a dating app. And from that swiping right there have been a lot of ups and downs and public breakups.
But all of that is water under the bridge as the comedian invited on The Breakfast Club popped the question. Definitely an event that has not happened before Club history!
During today’s interview , after throughout he spoke multiple times about the possibility of getting married and not getting married until 2039, Michael brought his girlfriend into the studio so she can meet the crew. Charlamagne asked if he would propose to her and taking everyone by surprise, Michael then reached into his bag, grabbed a ring, and proposed on the spot.
The comedian said he decided that this was finally the woman he wanted to be with for the rest of his life , he expressed that her loyalty was the thing that really made him want to pop the question. While still in shock Rada had one thing to say, “Bye side b——” to which Michael replied, “90% of the side b—— bye bye”.
