Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has many people talking about her new biography, which gives an inside peek at her personal life and many romances.
The award-winning actress has revealed details about her previous romance with Nigerian Afropop musician Iyanya, including how he cheated on her with Tonto Dikeh.
Yvonne described their relationship as “dreamy,” revealing that Iyanya would always give her breakfast in bed and had the assurance that her love for him would last forever. Iyanya took their love to new heights by tattooing her initials ‘YN’ on his wrist.
“We had a decent relationship breakfast in bed and all the niceties of a dream relationship one could think of. I had the assurance that he was someone I could be with forever. He tattooed my initials, YN, on his wrist, and I thought that was a big deal. If he wasn’t serious about it he wouldn’t do that. In his song, “Ur Waist”, he mentioned how he lusted over me”.
Unfortunately, their relationship hit the rocks after Yvonne got wind of his affair with Tonto Dikeh.
She claimed that she started receiving calls from an unknown person each time she left Iyanya’s place informing her that another actress, which happened to be Tonto Dikeh would visit and sometimes even spend the night.
“One can therefore imagine my shock when I returned to Ghana after one of my visits to Nigeria and someone called me from his house. The caller said anytime I left Iyanya’s place, another actress came over to him and sometimes slept over. The person felt strongly that something was going on between them and thought I should know. That actress turned out to be Tonto Dikeh of Nigeria, one of the female celebrities Iyanya named in his “Ur Waist” song”.
She added that when she was convinced about their affair, she had gone on Twitter, with Tonto responding to her with, “People changed and so did feelings, so move on”.
Yvonne further added that she heard more stories about what Iyanya did with some of his female crew members which convinced her that what happened between him and Tonto wasn’t an isolated incident. It was a pattern, his way of life.
As such, she didn’t see the need to keep fighting for him especially when she knew Tonto would end up with a similar fate.
Recall that Iyanya and Yvonne began dating in 2012, but the relationship hit the rock in 2015, after 3 years.
