She admitted she used to be romantically involved with IBB - who lost his wife, Maryam in 2009 and he has not remarried since.
According to her, they are just friends now and she is in a serious relationship of her own.
In her words:
“Former Head of State General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida was my boyfriend then but not anymore."
She however, maintained that they are 'presently friends and that they respect each other'.
"Currently, I have a boyfriend who is not in the entertainment industry and we are planning to get married, God willing.”
