Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has lost her chance of marrying this year because her secret lover has called off their wedding.
Unknown to many, the pretty Nollywood single mother sparked off a secret romance with Ugochukwu Udezue, a wealthy NBA basketball agent based in Denver, Colorado last year.
He reportedly proposed to her around the time she was seen flaunting a huge engagement ring on her official Instagram page.
Miss Nnaji and the Mr Udezue were supposed to get married in Milan Italy about two weeks ago but the groom cancelled the wedding at the last minute and returned to Amsterdam, dumping the actress and her guests. On why he cancelled the wedding at the last minute, Udezue reportedly told his friends that he doesn’t trust Miss Nnaji after she chose to make the wedding private.
Secondly, his father has refused to give his blessing because of Genevieve Nnaji’s suspicious demand of not wanting close family members at the wedding.
It was further disclosed that Ugo’s dad also refused to attend the event nor give his blessing.
Months before the wedding, Genevieve Nnaji reportedly begged Udezue to keep the wedding ceremony a low-key one. She even went as far as not telling any member of her family nor her colleagues.
She only left Nigeria with her best friend Oluchi Orlandi and few other friends.
According to sources, Mr Udezue thought Miss Nnaji has something to hide that was why she didn’t bother to invite her parents to the wedding ceremony scheduled for Milan.
This and his father’s refusal forced Mr Udezue to call off the wedding.
The source said Miss Nnaji was put to shame on her wedding day and was forced to return to Nigeria without the wedding ring she’s been dreaming of. Mr Udezue is the founder of African Basketball League. He is one of the most popular Nigerian NBA agents in the United States. According to our source, Udezue has four kids from his previous marriages.
It is still unsure if Genevieve Nnaji and the wealthy Basketball agent have called off their relationship.
Meanwhile, the actress is currently in Canada where she is attending the TIFF with other popular actors and producers.
