Iyanya, a prominent stage name of Nigerian musician Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, has disclosed that his present relationship was almost destroyed by Yvonne Nelson’s alleged infidelity in her autobiography “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson.”
He said in a recent interview for the Taymesan-hosted podcast Tea With Tay that following the publication of the book, his love interest had second thoughts about dating him.
“That stuff [Yvonne Nelson’s allegations] is crazy, bro. That stuff almost made me almost lose a relationship, current relationship.”
According to Yvonne Nelson’s biography, an informant told her that Tonto Dikeh, a Nigerian actress, regularly visited Iyanya and occasionally slept over when she traveled back to Ghana.
She verified the accuracy of the material and admitted to being heartbroken.
Iyanya responded to the accusation via his Twitter account, expressing disbelief over the claims and pledging to address them later.
The ‘Ur Waist’ hitmaker admitted that while many people wanted him to respond appropriately at the time, he refrained from doing so because he didn’t want to face accusations of slut-shaming.
