She made this known during a chat with DailyTrust Weekend magazine while answering questions about their relationship.

"Yes, that news was from me. Former Head of State General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida was my boyfriend then but not anymore. However, we are presently friends and we respect each other. Currently, I have a boyfriend who is not in the entertainment industry and we are planning to get married, God willing," she said.

The movie star also used the opportunity to debunk the rumours that she tried to commit suicide.

"It is unfortunate that my social media post was wrongly interpreted. The post I made was in English and it was just a grammatical expression showing my bitterness on what had happened to me as a businesswoman," she said.

"The reason for my post was because I was duped by a business partner, and I lost a huge sum of money in the process. It was a breach of trust and it was so devastating that I took to my page and made the post showing my dismay at what had happened to me. The story went viral that I am contemplating suicide. I never said I was going to do that. Why should I even do that?"

It would be recalled that in April, the actress posted what many described as a suicidal note on her Instagram page.
