Nigerian sketch maker, Abdulgafar Abiola, popularly known as Cute Abiola, has denied being in a romantic relationship with Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo, popularly known as Omoborty.
However, in an interview with Nollywood actress Debbie Shokoya, Cute Abiola said they had only done a skit together and were both surprised when news of the alleged love affair made headlines on some blogs.
According to him, he did not respond to the report at the time to prevent an exacerbation of the problem.
He said, “We never dated. Maybe because we just created content together. So that content, the way we took photos. I held her, holding her back and her waist for the photo.
“The conversation wasn't real. Her photo was not in the chat. The name was covered. For what? I didn't know how that happened. That time she felt so bad about it. I felt so bad too. Because I never wanted her to experience things like that. And that time she was in so much pain that we stopped talking to each other. We've started talking now.
“The thing is, that never happened. I never dated her. We were just like she was my sister and I was her brother. I even give her influencing jobs and say: Mom, can you do this, someone wants to work with you. And the same as me. Nothing like that.
“When I saw it, I was surprised. The thing is, when the blog posted it, they said, “What's happening?” I was like, even me, I don't know.
'The more I talk, the more I fire. If they drag you away, if you talk, you don't want it to end. It remains a trend.”
