Nigerian singer, Iyanya, has disclosed how he was on the verge of losing his relationship with his current partner when Yvonne Nelson’s allegations against him went viral.
Speaking on the latest episode of Tea With Tay podcast hosted by actor, Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, Iyanya revealed that after the release of the memoir, a lady he was asking out became skeptical about dating him.
He said, “That stuff (Yvonne Nelson’s allegations) is crazy, bro. That stuff almost made me lose a relationship. A current relationship. Before this book [Yvonne Nelson’s memoir], I was talking to one innocent girl who is not famous but immediately that book came out, everything became shaky. The girl was feeling like, ‘Omo, this guy, have you changed? Are you sure you won’t do me the same?”
It will be recalled that that Yvonne Nelson in her memoir, ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson’ launched on June 18, 2023, narrated how she found out her then boyfriend, Iyanya, was cheating on her with Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh.
Yvonne also detailed how Iyanya, who was the love of her life, painfully shredded her heart into pieces with lies, unfaithfulness, and deceit.
Iyanya had agreed to provide his side of the story following the allegation, but he changed his mind a few days later.
He stated at the time that while many people wanted him to respond appropriately, he would also be chastised for slut-shaming if he made a statement.
