Iyanya replies Yvonne Nelson

Following a recent interview she granted to Bella Naija, where she opened up on how her sizzling romance with Nigeria’s music star, Iyanya started and crashed after eight months of dating, the Kukere crooner has replied Sexy Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, declaring, “She can say whatever she wants to say.”

WG caught up with Iyanya during the week, but rather than refuting Yvonne’s claim, Iyanya simply muted, “I don’t want to talk about it please. She can say whatever she wants to say. It’s her business not mine.”

The “Kukere” and “Ur waist” singer once denied neither dating Yvonne Nelson nor any known female celebrity, insisting, “the thing about dating celebs is that it would most likely not last.”

Meanwhile, pouring her mind in the interview, Yvonne accused Iyanya of laying the bed of their relationship with lies, adding that while they were dating, he was also dating several other girls.

According to heartbroken Yvonne, “We dated for between seven to eight months. We had something and I thought it was special, like he was a wonderful guy but it was all lies. He had other girls and other things he was doing. Aside the actress that was in the picture, there were a lot more. That is how bad it is.”

“We were in a relationship and he lied throughout and he was able to do all those things because I wasn’t living in Nigeria. But aside from the distance, I feel if you’re a genuine person and you’re loyal, you would still not do that. I feel it’s disrespectful to start mentioning other people’s names.

I am talking about Iyanya because we had a thing; I don’t want to bring in a third person. There were a lot of names that people know. There was a girl from South Africa, I’m not going to mention names but she was part of Big Brother Africa last year. ”

When asked why she decided to keep the relationship away from public eye until their breakup, she replied, “I also don’t believe in putting my relationships in the faces of people. We both had our careers and were trying to protect our fan base and that’s cool. But if you go through my Instagram page, you’d see a couple of pictures of us together. I wasn’t shy about anything but he could not say he’s dating Yvonne Nelson because he had different people he was seeing so it was very hard for him to bring it out.”
