Tricia Esiegbe Denies Dating Footballers

I have never dated a footballer in my life and I remember that when I started Bold Faces, three persons – Joseph Yobo, John Utaka and Julius Agahowa – told me the show would be great and that I should respect myself so that I could grow.

Till today, those words are still in my brain. My image problem was caused by my friends who are envious of me and the achievements I have made so far through the programme.

They thought if they created unpalatable stories about me the footballers would leave the show since they are known to avoid scandals.

They said I was dating Super Eagles players, but ask yourself why didn’t they say I was dating the other bigger players that I interviewed – Didier Drogba, Rio Ferdinand, Samuel Eto and Ashley Cole among others.

I Don't know Who to Date- Actress Ebube Nwagbo

"Yes I am still single. The reason is that I am someone who has always believed in love. It is a big deal to me so if I have to do it, it has to be right. I am a strong believer of love. I get lots of proposals; it is so crazy I do not know who to give a chance. I think it is a price I have to pay for stardom. Sometimes when anybody comes my way, I do not know who wants to be with me for the right reasons. I believe when that day comes, I will definitely figure out who that person is. It is not easy. What I should be talking about is not relationship but marriage. I want to go into marriage and be in it for ever. No one goes into marriage thinking of divorce, but it happens. We try our best. I think I am kind of scared, but I just have to give it a try whether I like it or not. It just has to happen and happen right; at the right time"

Ladies Leave Shirts, Panties and Bras Outside My Door- Lynxx

No be small thing. Here is what Lynxxx told Saturday Beats;

“I am aware that they refer to me as the ladies man’. I think the reason behind that is the brand that I have created for myself. It is the brand that I came out with and maintained. I think it is the reason they label me with that. The core of my fans is actually ladies because I make songs for them. I have been coping with all the craziest of the ladies by the grace of God. My goal is always to remain focused. Ladies have done a lot of crazy things to me. Most times, when I am out of Lagos to perform, the ladies always find my room and leave certain items outside my door. I have got all kinds of items -shirts, panties, bras – name it,” he said.
