Yvonne Nelson, a Ghanaian actress, has told how she discovered her Nigerian ex-boyfriend, musician Iyanya, was cheating on her with Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh.
She revealed this in her memoir, ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,’ which will be released on Sunday, June 18, 2023.
In a chapter headed “Iyanya and My Love Life,” the actress discussed her adventures with Iyanya and how she subsequently discovered he was cheating on her.
Nelson stated that she believed the singer’s gesture of tattooing her initials “YN” on his waist and giving her a shoutout on his popular song ‘Ur Waist’ was a guarantee that they would be together forever.
She said she was shocked when someone called her from Iyanya’s house after she returned to Ghana and broke the shocking news to her.
“The caller said anytime I left Iyanya’s place, another actress come over to him and sometimes slept over. The person felt strongly that there was something going on between them and thought I should know. That actress turned out to be Tonto Dikeh of Nigeria and one of the female celebrities Iyanya named in his “Ur Waist” song. When I was convinced about the authenticity of the information I received, I was heartbroken,” the book partly reads.
She, however, said she knew she would have eventually left the relationship even if Tonto Dikeh hadn’t come into the picture, adding that she didn’t see any reason to keep fighting for a man she had lost.
