Meanwhile, in similar news…

Nigerian relationship coach, Blessing Okoro, popularly known as Blessing CEO, has finally addressed the speculation that she is dating celebrity auto dealer, Ikechukwu Darry Ogbonna aka IVD.

It may be recalled that a few months ago, IVD tattooed Blessing’s initials ‘BCEO’ on his hand and this was what sparked the relationship rumours.

Around the same time, she was arrested and remanded in prison in March over her involvement in the case between IVD and his late wife, Bimbo Ogbonna.

She had defended the car dealer who was accused of being involved in the death of his wife. The influencer alleged that the late Bimbo was a violent person and suicidal victim.

However, in a recent clip shared on her Instagram page, Blessing clarified that IVD is just her client and friend.

The life coach said that he only tattooed her name to appreciate her for supporting him during his difficult times.
