Ever since we first found out that former and present Love and Hip Hop stars Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels were dating back in November, their relationship has moved at warp speed. After going public in matching furs, posting risque images together and fawning over each other on social media, he proposed to her on Christmas Eve. They have the type of whirlwind relationship that people are either skeptical about (if not downright negative) or admire. If you’re part of the latter group, then you might want to know the secret behind how the two found each other, or as folks like to say today, the prayer she prayed for him. Everyone certainly wanted the tea when Ciara found love with Russell Wilson, and according to Mena, a number of people have asked her to spill on her own solemn request for Safaree.
“I’m getting a lot of you queen’s wanting to know what prayer I used lol,” she wrote on Instagram. “No lie my days were becoming longer than my nights. Praying all the time for everything I have now. But my prayers weren’t answered until I got rid of the devils work and really stepped up for everything I’m truly worth. Don’t question the timing — just understand that settling will be your down fall.”
“I was settling and really that almost ruined me,” she added in her message to fans. “Don’t be that girl! Stop settling for basic when you aren’t basic! Period! No prayer can be answered if you don’t know your worth.”
Whether or not you think they’re going to last, one can’t deny that the couple definitely have a lot of chemistry. They even wear matching outfits:
Mena most recently dated a rapper named Clifford Dixon as recently as October, right before she was first speculated to be seeing Samuels. She was also engaged to rapper Bow Wow, and they were together from 2014 to 2015. Samuels is most known for his long-term relationship with Nicki Minaj, which lasted more than 10 years.
