Nigerian content creator and actor, Kehinde Adams, also known as Lege Miami, has dispelled speculations that his online dating platform promotes ‘hookup’.

Lege Miami said he launched the matchmaking programme to bring people together for serious relationships that could lead to marriage and that is what he’s been doing.

He made the clarification in an interview with Saturday Beats, adding that he’s gotten testimonials from people he matchmade and ended up getting married.

He said; “If you check my YouTube channel, you will see that it is not meant for hook-up, but matchmaking for people who actually want to get married.

I have never done ‘hook-up’. My platform is for people who are serious about getting married. I also have testimonials from people who got married through the platform, and are living happily.”
