Why I haven’t addressed Yvonne Nelson’s cheating allegation – Iyanya


Singer Iyanya has explained why he has not responded to an allegation made by his former girlfriend actress Yvonne Nelson that he cheated on her with her colleague Tonto Dikeh.

Yvonne made the allegation in her explosive book I Am Not Yvonne Nelson launched in June 2022 in Ghana.

Iyanya’s romance with Yvonne hit the rocks in 2015 after the pair began dating in July 2012 and were spotted together at functions.

Responding to the actress’s claim, the musician said in a tweet that he would speak on it at a later date but not in a book. He however went silent on the matter.

But in a recent interview on The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, Iyanya said he endorsed the book without knowing the content.

The singer, who had promised to address Yvonne’s allegations last year when the book came out, stated that he is still not ready to respond to his ex-girlfriend’s infidelity allegations.

He noted that they are still on good terms and communicate regularly.

He said, “I endorsed Yvonne Nelson’s book without knowing I was in the book. We were cool, we still talk to this day, so I didn’t know that I was in the book. When the book came out, everywhere was buzzing. People were telling me I am in the book. But I have not read it till now.

“I know I promise to address the allegations she made in her book, but I’m not ready to respond. I’m not going to respond to stuff like that, being me comes with a lot of madness.”
