Early Life

Alex Ekubo-Okwaraeke, aka Alexx Ekubo (born April 10, 1986), is a Nigerian actor and model. Ekubo is a native of Arochukwu, Abia State.

A talented actor born in Abia State, he has appeared in many movies, playing key roles flawlessly and showing a high level of professionalism that helped make him one of the most sought-after actors.


He attended the Federal Government College Daura, Katsina State. He studied law at the University of Calabar and later got a diploma in law from Calabar Polytechnic.


Alexx Ekubo wasn’t known to the public before coming into the entertainment industry. As an undergraduate, and a law student at the University of Calabar, he was more focused on his studies and wasn’t really into any engagement outside his academics. Towards the tail end of his first-degree program in 2008, he gradually discovered himself as an actor. Opportunities to carve a niche in his acting career started coming.

The genesis of his career started when he was an undergraduate; he was partially involved in Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen’s film titled “Sinner in the House,” where he played a minor role. Emerging as the 2010 first runner-up of the popular Mr Nigerian contest also helped expose him to a wider audience which is a big advantage for a young, emerging face on the screen.

Many years after he first featured in a movie, his major role came in “Ladies Men”, where he perfectly brought his character to life. This made him become a popular face on TV and thus marked his rise to fame in the industry. He followed up his first main role with other high-class movies, where he played the principal role as a major character.

Personal Life

Even though many female fans have their eyes on Alexx Ekubo, he is a mature man who may soon be getting married.

For now, however, Alexx Ekubo has not officially announced himself as a married man. We have no evidence to suggest that Alexx Ekubo is married.

Failed Marriage

On 10 May 2021, Alexx Ekubo and his fiancee Fancy Acholonu announced their wedding dates on Instagram. Their traditional wedding was supposed to hold on Saturday, 20 November, in Imo State, while the white wedding was on the upper Saturday, 27 November, in Lagos State.

In August 2021, Alexx Ekubo’s fiancée called off their engagement with Fancy Acholonu releasing a statement that their relationship had ended. Alexx’s fiancée cited incompatibility as the reason for the breakup, stating that after careful consideration, they had concluded that their relationship was no longer beneficial.

The situation was similar to a boat that had been at sea for many months; after a long voyage, it was clear that the original destination had been a long time ago. The boat was spinning in circles, going nowhere.

The couple realized that they could no longer stay together and needed to part ways to find fulfillment.

Apology after Breakup

Nearly two years after the breakup, ex-fiancé of Nollywood actor Alex Ekubo, Fancy Acholonu apologized for the ‘breakfast’ she served Alex a few months before their wedding.

On December 29, 2022, she said on her Instagram:

“As our shirt says, Nothing makes sense when we’re apart, @alexxekubo. You still have my heart. I miss you, I love you, and I’m genuinely sorry for all the hurt & pain you and your family went through with our breakup.

“My actions in how I handled things were out of my character. I should have controlled my emotions and not been so overreactive. I said too much; I did too much. Please forgive me; I’ve learned my lesson on how to handle situations better.

“I haven’t expressed myself properly. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable and say you, your family, & friends still mean the world to me. Losing you has felt like grief. Love heals”

He forced me to make the apology and I fell for it

Fancy Acholonu, an American model and ex-fiancee of Alexx Ekubo, has provided additional details about her public apology to the actor.

In response to a fan’s question, Fancy clarified rumors about the reason for her apology and rumored reconciliation with him.

Fancy Acholonu confirmed that she was forced to apologize and that she accepted it. Her eyes are now fully open, and she is fully standing.

Fancy stated that there isn’t any truth to reports that the American model and Alex Ekubo have reconciled.

The fan wrote, “Did Alex convince u yo make that apology post? I saw something on the blogs. If he did. Sis that is extremely manipulative you should run for your life. He only wanted to use you for revenge”.

Fancy replied,

“Yes he did. It’s true. I fell for it. My eyes are now fully open. I’m at peace & now have full understanding”.

I endured lies, cheating, and more from Alex Ekubo

Fancy Acholonu, Alex Ekubo’s estranged fiancee, has continued to speak out about their failed engagement.

This year, the model is letting it all hang out, and she has finally revealed why she called off their engagement. Fancy claimed that Alex was attempting to ruin her and her reputation because she left him in response to Fab jewels’ request that she keep things private.

She emphasized how much she had to put up with Alex, from his cheating to his lies and so on. But forcing her to constantly apologize to him is wrong.

“No I won’t. Alex has succeeded in trying to ruin me and my reputation just because I left him. Grace you slightly know me I’m calm quiet dance, play work, and mind my business. I endured everything a Nigerian women typically does from her man which is lies and all the cheating etc. But to make me apologize constantly publicly. It is WRONG! I never revealed why I left. I never bashed him. I only said sorry for making a statement. I am someone’s child, someone’s future wife. I need to speak up for myself. Don’t tell me to stop. Silence is why many people are depressed. Alex needs to stop is manipulation! His ego and wanting me to say sorry all the time is a problem NOT me! Everytime I’ve made its a statement is because of HIM! Don’t tell me to stop. Tell him”.

We dated for 5 years, he refused to be intimate with me

Fancy Acholonu, Alexx Ekubo’s ex-fiancée, has made another shocking revelation about his sexuality.

This comes just days after the Nigerian model apologized and sought reconciliation with her ex-fiancé, Alexx Ekubo.

While the former couple got engaged in May 2021, Acholonu abruptly canceled their wedding in August of the same year.

On Friday, the model apologized publicly to Ekubo via Instagram, stating that her heart remains with him.

Ekubo reacted to the apology with a comment which read, “I appreciate the apology. May God bless us all.”

The post has since been deleted.

In an unexpected turn of events, Acholonu took to Instagram on Monday to declare that she is “free” and that “the chain is broken.”

“Happy New Year everyone. 2023 will be my year of strength, being fearless, speaking up for myself & FINALLY no longer under anyone’s control. I’m free, the chain is broken. May God bless us all. #SimplyFancy,” she captioned the post

In an interview with Stella Dimoko Korkus, Fancy Acholonu revealed that for the five years they dated, he never had intimacy with her.

“I tried my best. He wanted to get back with me as much as I did. We’ve been at this for one year. But he felt since I broke up with him I should do more of the work. I was fine with that but his methods are cruel and constantly public. His sexuality is not the reason I broke up with him. I’m very open minded so regardless of what he prefers, love is love for me.

I loved him for his personality and heart nothing more. He didn’t want to be with me intimately which was confusing and difficult for me to understand especially for 5 years so it did affect my self esteem as I kept myself for him and when he would cheat with curvy women he wouldn’t perform with them either so I don’t know, I can’t confirm or deny his sexuality but for me, I loved him despite all and he still found ways to hurt me.”

“When I met him I didn’t have much experience so it was easy to convince me that his decision was because of religion. But as he would constantly cheat and yes I caught him, it would hurt me because that’s not part of the religious believe he made our celibacy to be. Honestly this whole thing has been complicated beyond words so it’s unhealthy for me to continue this relationship. I guess I needed this post he begged me to do so that i can see his intention was just to clean up his image.”

When asked to say something to Alexx Ekubo through this interview, Fancy Acholonu said: “Honestly I don’t know what to say to him. This has to be the most devastating thing I’ve ever been through, and for it to be so public; I pray we both find healing and peace because it won’t be an easy journey. One breakup statement shouldn’t have led to all this.

I wish I never said anything but I am human; I was fed up with good reasons. I pray he doesn’t only focus on people’s reactions but evaluate his actions too. I also pray he learns to be real and more forgiving with his next person and not be so consumed with having the perfect image because it’s draining to keep that up. My mental health can’t tolerate our relationship anymore.”
