According to the CEO of Ebony Films Production Nigeria Limited, he and Toyin have been dating ever before she knew her husband.
The CEO of Ebony Films Production Nigeria Limited told the entertainment magazine,
"First, I never snatched Toyin Aimakhu from anybody. Toyin and I have not just known each other. We have been dating ever before she knew her husband. That was about 15 years ago. Even before her husband started actiing. And recently, when we now met again, she wasn't with her husband anymore before we rekindled our romance."
Speaking on the kidnapping allegations levied against him, Egbegbe reiterated, Aimakhu was never kidnapped but returned to the house after she was done at the location.
"Why would they say I kidnapped my girlfriend? If Toyin wasn't on movie location, that means she was with me and anytime she's through at the location she comes back to my house.
Would I have kidnapped her and kept her underground? So those behind the story and those still peddling it as rumour, God knows what they really want to gain from that. But, left to me, I didn't kidnap Toyin and I will never do that."
In November 2015, Toyin Aimakhu started dating Seun Egbegbe as her marriage to Adeniyi Johnson started falling apart publicly.
Even though she was criticized for openly dating when she was still legally married to Johnson, the actress could care less. On Valentine’s Day she even publicly declared love to Seun Egbegbe.
The crack in their relationship started later that month when news started circulating that she had been kidnapped by Seun Egbegbe.
This started the drama between the two but it should be noted that last November it was reported that Seun Egbegbe allegedly beat up Aimakhu which the actress vehemently denied.
She has since gone on to issue a disclaimer disassociating herself from the movie producer.
