- The relationship between a 21-year-old lady, Esther, living in the UK, and a Nigerian man that started online had a lot of dramatic turns
- After Theo refused several times to have a video call with her, Esther suspected that he could actually be fake
- During an investigation, she discovered that he is London-based and he is actually who he said he is
A 21-year-old young lady, Esther, living in the UK fell in love with a Nigerian man, Theo, after they have been constantly talking for a year.
She, however, suspected that he may be a catfish when Theo said that he did not want to rush their relationship because he is a Nigerian prince, Daily Mail reports.
The lady investigated his identity
Esther wanted to solve her suspicion so she went on a popular show called MTV’s Catfish UK after her friend, Anita, contacted the show on her behalf that she has been having suspicion about Theo.

Though they had always talked since they met on Instagram, the young man had never at any moment agreed to FaceTime with her.
Despite signs that Thoe may really be a catfish, the lady soon discovers that he was really who he said he is - a Nigerian prince, Daily Advent reports.
We're both from the same tribe
The 21-year-old was really excited that Theo is from the same Tribe as she is, telling the show host that she was glad everything turned out well despite her earlier misgivings.
"But he's always in a meeting, whenever I try to video-call he doesn't pick up. We were on the phone once and I tried to switch it to FaceTime and he hung up."
During the inquiry, they had to investigate his profile and contacted some of his friends to get to know where he really is.

Esther was surprised
At a point, they sent Theo a link to know his location. Esther was shocked to find out that he has been in London all the while they have been dating. She thought he was staying in Nigeria.
When they finally met, the man told them he runs five businesses in the UK and it is practically impossible to have a video call of five minutes.
How it started vs how it is going
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian couple who met on Facebook walked down the aisle and stunned the internet with beautiful photos from their traditional wedding.
Captioning the post ''how it started vs how it is going'' the man identified as Okello Peters Izuchukwu shared on Facebook how he met his wife.
Izuchukwu shared two screenshots from his first conversation with the lady named Udo Dirim. Udo had approached her man first in a familiarization attempt which turned into a relationship and now, marriage.
