Nigerian artists being in a relationship with their managers is no longer a secret in the music industry.
These Nigerian artists found love right in their own backyard by dating their managers. You can find love anywhere. Their lives are public because they are in the spotlight. They appear to have lost the right to privacy because whatever they do is usually public knowledge. The public is not exempt from prying into their love lives.
Here are some Nigerian artists that have a relationship with their managers.
1. Niyola and Bank W
Banky W was romantically linked to his record label signee Niyola long before he proposed to his missing rib partner, actress Adesua Etomi. Banky W, who also served as the singer’s manager, was said to be more to her than just a manager.
However, Niyola and Bank W denied the allegations, insisting that they were simply colleagues who got along well.
2. Yemi Alade and Taye Aliyu
Singer Yemi Alade is on the list because of claims that she was having an affair with her manager, Taiye Aliyu. The two, who have worked together for a long time, have stayed silent about the reports.
3. Wizkid and Jada Padlock
It is no longer rumored that singer Wizkid and his manager Jada Padlock are in a relationship. It did not take long for them to confirm it after Wizkid disclosed he and Jada had welcomed a baby boy, Zion.
4. Tiwa Savage and Teebillz
When Tiwa Savage returned to Nigeria, Teebillz took on the role of manager, and the two of them collaborated closely to develop her brand.
