Iyanya dismisses engagement rumours

Pop musician, Iyanya, has dismissed reports that he got engaged to a Liberian woman named Georgianna Weah.

Rumours that the 29-year-old was engaged spread after an online medium wrote recently that a ceremony took place on July 15.

According to the blog, Iyanya and the woman started dating in April and an engagement followed in July.

Addressing the issue on Wednesday, the 2008 MTN Project Fame West Africa winner simply wrote “Apparently I’m engaged and I didn’t even know lol”

Iyanya has long learned to keep matters of the heart private.

He went public about his relationship with beauty specialist, Freda Francis, in August 2015, after posting a photo of them cuddling on social media.

The two attended events as couples and filled their Instagram pages with photos.

By January, the relationship was over.

Iyanya deleted all the photos he took with Freda from Instagram and unfollowed her on the photo sharing platform.

She responded by temporarily deactivating her account.

Before then, the ‘Kukere’ singer was in a relationship with Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson.

So bad was their breakup that the heartbroken screen goddess declared in an interview with Genevieve magazine that “Nigerian men can lie for the whole of Africa.”

On the possibility of dating him again, she said: “Never! It’s like eating your vomit. No way! It’s not happening ever. As a matter of fact I’m not interested in anybody in the arts, because it is not the right place to invest time and emotions.”

There were also reports that Iyanya had a six-year on-gain/off-again relationship with a-mother-of-one named Magdalene.

That too ended in acrimony after the musician accused his ex of leaking information about the affair to the public.
