Nigerian musician, Iyanya has clarified that he has no intention of taking the young lady he was linked with after Davido’s Timeless concert away from her boyfriend.
It can be recalled that Iyanya went on a lunch date and boat cruise with Florence, a lady who was admiring him during his performance at the concert.
However, he received negative comments from social media users who criticized him for not considering how Florence’s boyfriend would feel seeing them together.
On Tuesday, May 2nd, Iyanya decided to set the record straight and explain why he went on the date with Florence.
He revealed in a Twitter thread that Florence was depressed because one of her close relatives was battling cancer, and he only wanted to put a smile on her face.
He shared photos and emphasized that he only met her on the boat, and there was no ulterior motive.
He explained how he sighted Florence at Davido‘s Timeless concert, and after tweeting about her beautiful smile, she reached out to him.
When he learned about her situation, he felt that it would be nice to give her a treat in Lagos. Therefore, he had his team contact her and make plans for her to come to Lagos so he could help make her happy.
