It’s always something with relationship people, whether they are together or long departed. This time around, the drama is between ex-celebrity lovers, Iyanya and Yvonne Nelson.
They’re both driving our Twitter timelines crazy, with scandal-inclined excerpts from Yvonne’s memoir I’m Not Yvonne Nelson dropping every other minute. We don’t subscribe to the drama, but here’s why we think they might both be in on it.
It’s giving publicity stunt
Both Iyanya and his ex, Yvonne Nelson, have new projects (an EP and a book) out at the moment and don’t African celebrities do anything for clout?
Yes, they once dated
If you didn’t know, Iyanya and Yvonne were a thing. The singer even gave the Ghanaian diva a shout-out in his 2013 hit song, Your Waist, and tattooed her initials on his waist. God, abeg. The union sadly came to an end in 2015, and in her memoir, Nelson claims Iyanya was nothing but a lying cheater.
Iyanya and My Love Life
There’s an entire chapter in Yvonne Nelson’s memoir dedicated to Iyanya, and who is drumming it in our ears?
Nelson is naming names
The drama keeps getting messier because how did Tonto Dikeh come into the picture? Yvonne Nelson claims the Nollywood actress was in fact the one cheating with Iyanya. An excerpt from the memoir reads:
“When I was convinced about the authenticity of the information I received, I was heartbroken. I took to Twitter to rant and vent. Tonto Dikeh responded on Twitter, saying people change and so did feelings, so l should move on.”
“There’s no proof sha” — Iyanya
This is the hill Iyanya is willing to die on. The singer asked Yvonne Nelson to name the source in his camp who hinted about his “thing” with Tonto Dikeh.
Tonto Dikeh is typing… or not
She hasn’t said jack. This either means she’s not part of whatever Iyanya and Yvonne have going on, or she doesn’t consider it worth her time right now.
The tracks in Iyanya’s new EP
Apparently, track 1 and 6 from Iyanya’s new EP are titled Love and Trust and Breakfast. If you ask us, too much going on here to be a mere coincidence.
The exes are working twice as hard
Amid the entire chaos, guess who’s jumping on every sub tweet to reroute the discourse to his new music project? Yvonne, on the hand, seems to have started a book tour.
They’re both winning, and we love it for them.
