I didn’t know Yvonne Nelson wrote about me when I endorsed her book – Iyanya

Afropop singer, Iyanya Mbuk, has said he endorsed the memoir written by his ex-girlfriend, Yvonne without knowing she spilled details about him in it.

It may be recalled that the Ghanaian actress, in a chapter titled, “Iyanya And My Love Life”, of her book ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson,’ alleged that he cheated with actress, Tonto Dikeh.

Iyanya who sat down for a chat on The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, said he endorsed the book without knowing the content. He also said they are still in good terms and communicate regularly.

The ‘Ur Waist’ crooner who had promised to address the allegations last year, however, said he is still not ready to share his side of the story.

Iyanya said; “I endorsed Yvonne Nelson’s book without knowing I was in the book. We were cool, we still talk to this day, so I didn’t know that I was in the book. When the book came out, everywhere was buzzing. People were telling me I am in the book. But I have not read it till now.

“I know I promise to address the allegations she made in her book, but I’m not ready to respond. I’m not going to respond to stuff like that, being me comes with a lot of madness.”

CorrectNG recalls that the music star challenged Nelson to reveal the identity of the person that said he cheated with Nollywood star, Tonto Dikeh.

In her book, Yvonne said that she received an anonymous call from an inside who informed her that a popular actress used to visit Iyanya’s house when he left and that person turned out to be Tonto.

She wrote part; “One can therefore imagine my shock when I went to Ghana after one of my visits to Nigeria and someone called me from his house. The caller said anytime I left Iyanya’s place, another actress came over to him and sometimes slept over.

The person felt strongly that there was something going on between them and thought I should know. That actress turned out to be Tonto Dikeh of Nigeria, one of the female celebrities Iyanya named in his “Ur Waist” song.

When I was convinced about the authenticity of the information I received, was heartbroken. I took to Twitter to rant and vent. Tonto Dikeh responded on Twitter, saying people changed and so did feelings, so I should move on.”
