Juliet Ibrahim exposed in an interview that she had ended things with Iceberg Slim, without clearly stating the reason for the decision. Iceberg Slim later gave a cryptic post on his instagram handle saying: “When toxic person can no longer control you, they’ll try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will see the truth, just like you did.” This was the end of a relationship that looked so perfect.
IK Ogbonna and Sonia La Reina (Nigeria)
Rumours started flying around that IK Ogbonna and Sonia were in bad terms when the latter dropped his last name from all her social media accounts.

AKA and Bonang (South Africa)
Sometimes in September 2017, AKA claimed he lied about his brief breakup with Bonang. He said it was just a publicity stunt; but fast forward to 2018, it’s more of a reality than a stunt.

The main reason for the breakup is still unknown.
Asamoah and Gifty Gyan (Ghana)

Vera accused Otile of being a parasite siphoning her money. She wrote on her handle: “Otile Brown and I are no longer in a relationship. I know it’s not important but since social media was involved it’s good to just speak my mind about it here. To avoid y’all tagging me on posts, sending me videos and all that stuff. I’m human. Feel free to judge. Feel free to share this post with your friends & gossip about it, feel free to Mock my situation. It’s okay, I’m human and I’m gonna be true to myself.” I WAS FAITHFUL 100 PER CENT. I was in this purely out of love and I was there for him anytime and every time he needed me. I gave him full support love and care, I supported his dreams, and I was ride or die for him. I was faithful 100 percent.
