The South Sudanese-born model made this known while answering questions from her fans via her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
A fan asked the model if she was single and she gave a rather shocking reply, saying;
Yes, ma’am single and ready to mingle or whatever they say. Jokes but I’m single.
The couple sparked off relationship rumours in July 2020 after a video of the two all loved up made its way to social media.
They confirmed the rumours when the music star gifted the model a promise ring during their trip to France.
The model also confirmed that she is dating the musician on his birthday on August 2020 in Greece with a series of photos and video of them enjoying life – really.
She had said;
Happiest birthday to my person, my G and lover boy. I’m grateful to be spending this special day with you. Wishing you more life, success and happiness, love you baby.
