Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo has made his first return to Instagram after messy social media drama with his ex, Fancy Acholonu.
The actor has been off all social media platforms after his ex-fiancee mercilessly dragged him for manipulating her. Kemi Filani reported that the last time the actor posted on his Instagram page was on December 30, 2022.
Taking to Instagram to make his first post for the year, Alex wished his fans a happy new year. The role interpreter revealed that he wouldn’t be sticking to his yearly ritual by giving his fans pep talk this year.
To comfort them, he created an hashtag where they can read his previous pep talks.
“Happy New Year Everyone.
Usually, I start the year with #AlexEkuboYearPepTalk. This year there will be none. Pls click the hashtag to read from previous years. Everything I’ve said before is still VALID.
Feel free to comment any line from the previous years that resonate with now.
God Bless us All”.
Alex Ekubo and Fancy Acholonu’s social media drama
Recall that Fancy Acholonu, had a public apology to the actor earlier this year after she embarrassed him in 2021 by calling off their wedding on social media and asking him to “live his truth” which had many insinuating that he is gay.
Interestingly, days after she made the public apology, she claimed that Alex forced her to put the apology post to save his face. She was upset that he didn’t live up to his end of the bargain after tendering the apology.
Hell-bent on exposing him, Fancy Acholonu further revealed that in their 5 years of relationship, he never touched her.
It got messier when an audio recording of Alex and his Fancy in a heated conversation surfaced online.
In the audio recording, Alex Ekubo clearly told his estranged fiance that he wouldn’t be posting anything on his page, in reference to her apology. However, he would acknowledge her post and leave a comment under it. Read more here.
