Nollywood movie star and model, Alex Ekubo, has proposed marriage to his girlfriend, Fancy Acholonu.
The 2010 first runner-up for Mr Nigeria made the announcement via his Instagram page on Monday, with a picture of himself and his fiancée captioned, “I asked the love of my life @fancyacholonu to marry me….”
Fancy also took to her Instagram page to announce her engagement with the star in a caption which read, “… I said yes to the love of my life @alexxekubo”
Despite enjoying the Nollywood spotlight, the actor has managed to keep his relationship private from public view, hence a comment by his colleague Omoni Oboli which read, “Congratulations darling, now we don’t have to keep this a secret anymore.”
Fancy Acholonu is a US-based model and entrepreneur with a popular jewellery brand. The online accessories store, Zodiacaa, caters for lovers of astrology.
Ekubo and Acholonu first sparked dating rumours back in 2018 with sizzling pictures for her jewellery brand campaign. The rumours were, however, left unconfirmed till the announcement of their engagement.
