A ‘romantic’ tweet by a Malawian man on July 8 went completely south after shocked netizens mocked him over ‘bizarre’ reasons he was getting married to fiance.

In four separate tweets, Bob Phondo listed 10 things he needed the world to know about the woman who ‘stood by him’ when he had nothing. The woman he was going to marry.

Many could not hold back their thoughts on whether Bob was talking about his fiance as the qualities mirrored those of a mother.

“I wanna share 10 things about this woman before we wed this weekend,” he started by saying.

1. When I met her I had no place to stay. I was sleeping on a couch at a friend’s house. And she knew.

2. I found a place later on, and she helped paying my rent for months

3. She got me my first car ever.

4. My laptop got damaged and I needed it so much at the time so I could work on my things in order to earn something. She gave me hers.

5. She covered most costs for our dates for a year.

6. She invested in our first two businesses together. And opted for me to run them full time

7. I never met her mom until when I brought my family to meet hers

8. She celebrated and congratulated me for any penny I made at the time, even when it was as little as $10

9. She supported everything I was trying to do to make ends meet. Whether it earned us money or not.

10. Though I’m very stable and all that now, I know she doesn’t really care about those things. She cares about me solely. I know she’d give me anything in the world if she had to coz she has proved it over and over again.

Ladies and gentlemen, that’s the kinda woman I’m marrying,” wrote Phondo.

"What about other qualities that do not involve your coming up?" one netizen posed.
