Big Brother Naija star, Bisola, who recently announced her relationship with 2015 MTN Project Fame winner, Jeff Akoh insist her declaration wasn’t a publicity stunt.
Bisola who had tongues wagging when she publicly declared via her Twitter handle that she was in a romantic relationship with Akoh, recently revealed in an interview with Saturday punch that it wasn’t mere publicity stunt.
Bisola wrote “It is official guys, Jeff Akoh and I are in love and in a strong, loving relationship. Your girl B is taken #ageaintnothingbutanumber.” on twitter and many of her fans believed it was a publicity stunt for Jeff’s new album.
But in a chat with Saturday punch, the singer and actress said it was not a publicity stunt.
“When I posted on my social media account that I was in love with Jeff Akoh of Project Fame, it was not that we were an item. He just finished performing without rehearsing with the band that was there and his vocals literally blew me away. I was really impressed because he had not rehearsed with the live band that was playing. I was so impressed that I yelled, ‘Jeff I love you. You are such an amazing singer.’ Then I tweeted it. People that really know me are aware of the fact that I joke a lot. I put a hash tag with the post #ageaintnothingbutanumber and I knew the post would stir up a controversy. It was not planned, neither was it a publicity stunt. It was a spur of the moment thing. I had listened to him and I fell in love with his vocals. People just took it out of context,” she said.
According to Bisola, “For me, I don’t have anything against dating someone younger but I would rather date someone who is older than me. It is my choice and I don’t have a particular reason. I am not in a relationship at the moment because I am focused on being successful. Love would eventually come but there are some bills that need to be paid staring me in the eyes. I cannot say my love interest would come and pay for it.”
