Rapper Guaynaa got down on one knee during his July 31 performance at 2022 Tomorrowland for YouTube personality Lele Pons.
In December 2020, the couple disclosed they had started dating in an Instagram post.
Who is Guaynaa?
Rapper Guaynaa, whose true name is Jean Carlos Santiago Pérez, rose to fame in 2019 with the reggaetón song ReBoTa.
Guaynaa surprised fans who watched his music videos and discovered the clean-cut, sophisticated artist to be contrary to what they had imagined by introducing his own sound and look into his songs.
Guaynaa stated to POPSUGAR in 2020, “You’ll never know who an artist truly is when you give him artificial teeth, or a necklace that will likely slap his abuela in the face when he asks for la bendición.”
He claimed that he had always stood out among musicians who performed in related musical genres, including many of his friends.
He claimed, “I was always surrounded by rappers, or pals that dressed like rappers,” and claimed they started referring to him as “el Guaynabito” because of the way he dressed and appeared to be from Guaynabo.
According to local proverbs, the wealthy populate Guaynabo in Puerto Rico, Guaynaa said to the outlet.
Regardless of what his outer appearance might suggest, Guaynaa’s family was not wealthy.
His mother came from a history of trying to escape poverty, while his father was a sugarcane cutter from Puerto Rico.
“When my mother was six years old, she travelled to Puerto Rico with my Cuban grandfather, who was a political prisoner. Only $10 was in my mother’s, grandmother’s, and grandfather’s possession “explained he.
“In essence, my family worked extremely hard to earn what they have. I don’t claim to have come from a golden cradle, but occasionally I do.”
When Guaynaa recorded a freestyle about the hurricane that ravaged Puerto Rico in 2017, he became famous for the first time.
He became aware of the influence reggaeton could have at that precise moment.
Following the success of ReBoTa, he released his debut EP, dubbed BRB, in 2020.
“I want this EP to make people happy. I want everyone to take these songs and create beautiful memories with them,” Guaynaa told POPSUGAR at the time.
“I want them to perrear, to enjoy, to laugh, to have fun with it, to feel that warmth that brings us together.”
When did Guaynaa and Lele Pons start dating?
Lele Pons, whose real name is Eleonora Pons Maronese, and Guaynaa first met in 2019, but suspicions of a romance started to spread after the two worked together on the urban tune Se Te Nota.
When Pons promoted their new song in August 2020, the first post hinting their probable romance came.
A video shows Guaynaa and Pons having fun and being behind the scenes at the studio was captioned with the words “fire” and “heart.”
However, the two didn’t formally declare their relationship until December 2020.
Pons captioned an Instagram snapshot of the couple kissing in the snow with the phrase “MINE (It’s official)”
After going to Puerto Rico together in January 2021, the couple’s relationship strengthened. In August of that same year, they bought a house and moved in together.
When did they get engaged?
On July 31, 2022, Guaynaa moved their romance forward by proposing to her on stage at the Tomorrowland music festival in Belgium.
Guaynaa got down on one knee as Pons finished her performance and got a joyful and emotional “yes.”
The proposal was the first to take place on stage in Tomorrowland’s history, according to DJ Steve Aoki, who was playing at the time.
“We’re tying the knot! @guaynaa, I adore you with all of my heart! I can’t wait to be with you for the rest of my life! 100x YESS!!!” On Instagram, Pons posted.
