Nollywood actor, Alexx Ekubo proposed to his girlfriend, Fancy Acholonu and she said yes.
The actor broke the news on his Instagram account with a picture of himself and Fancy.
The picture shared by Alexx was captioned: “I asked the love of my life @fancyacholonu to marry me…”
Confirming Ekubo’s announcement, Acholonu responded in a separate post on her official Instagram account, “& I said YES to the love of my life @alexxekubo.”
Fancy Acholonu is a model and actress born in Los Angeles, to Nigerian parents.
She was raised in Nigeria and educated in the USA.
Fancy Acholonu is an entrepreneur who has inspired several business outfits including ‘The Fancy Kidz’, an establishment which puts together modelling and acting classes for kids.
Alexx Ekubo has also established himself in the Nigerian movie landscape since he made his film debut in ‘Sinners in the House’, a 2005 movie by Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen.
There has been rumour that the actor and his longtime buddy, Ik Ogbonna were gay partners.
However, Alexx left his fans in shock when he took to his Instagram account on Monday to share the good news with pictures of his engagement.
In 2019, the actor had said Nigerians should tolerate those who want to be homosexuals, adding that people should be allowed to be “free & comfortable with their sexual preference”.
“Learn to live & let live, if a person wants to be gay, let them gay in peace, personally I’m not, have never been, & will never be, lets allow pple to be free & comfortable with their sexual preference, stop the name calling & shaming,” he said.
The news is coming weeks after Ekubo took delivery of a brand new 2020 edition of Toyota Landcruiser jeep valued at over N35 million.
Celebrities and friends of the actor have been felicitating with him after the announcement.
Do2Dtun, IK Ogbonna, Bisola, Chioma Akpotha, Yvonne Jegede, Real Warri Pikin, BBNaija’s Khafi, Lisa Omorodion, Deyemi Okanlawon, and Venita Akpofure have all gone to wish Alexx and his fiancee a wonderful life together.
