It seems rumours that Big Brother Africa winner Uti Nwachukwu is gay can now take a back seat, as NET has gathered that the TV show host and ‘man about town’ may be in a secret relationship with actress Beverly Naya.
Although many people have tried to link Uti to some women before now, no one has ever been able to make it stick, which then spurred the gay rumours, especially because of his closeness to his pal Alex Ekubo.
The NET’s sources say the romance between Uti and Beverly has been going on for a while, and although they’ve been spotted at the same events a few times, both have done a fantastic job of keeping their relationship away from the public.
Although we could not immediately independently confirm this, those close to him tell us that Beverly, who relocated to Nigeria from the UK, is known and welcome at Uti’s family home and is well loved by his family and friends.
The actress hit the limelight a few years ago after playing the lead role in the movie Home In Exile.
She also featured in EME act Banky W’s music video for the song Follow You Go.
At Uti’s birthday party earlier in the year, which he celebrated with a group of Nigerian widows at the Calabar Hall in Surulere, when asked when he would be getting married, he replied that it may just happen soon, as one could never tell.
Is it possible he’s found his bride? We’ll keep a tab on these two, to see what unfolds.
