Iyanya is one of the most successful Nigerian singers currently, and yes, you are right, he is rich and famous but is still unmarried in a country where men come under scrutiny for remaining single after acquiring wealth.
The Kukere singer recently set social media abuzz when he disclosed that while performing at Davido’s Timeless Concert, a lady caught his attention. He asked the woman to identify herself on Twitter.
In a recent interview with high-profile media personality Chude Jideonwo, Iyanya discussed his personal life and disclosed that he is scared of doing forever with anyone but is optimistic about finding love soon.
The Jombolo crooner said his fear of marriage is a result of childhood experiences, though he failed to discuss it further.
“To be real here, I pray to God for a beautiful home. It’s not easy because my experiences as a child has made it difficult for me to just settle for anything. It’s not that I don’t want to get married or be in a serious relationship, but marriage is scary for me. At the end of the day, you just have to do it, but I don’t stop praying for a beautiful marriage and a beautiful home.”
Iyanya is 36 and is still single without mentioning any woman as a girlfriend or fiancée. He is credited for hit songs like Kukere, Away, Le Kwa Ukwu, and more. He is rumored to have dated Nollywood stars Tonto Dikeh and Yvonne Nelson in the past.
Will he settle down anytime soon?
