Iyanya Mbuk, Nigerian Music act, has opened up on why he os still single at age 31.
The ‘Kukere’ crooner who came to limelight when he won 2008 Mtn
project fame stated that he ‘’ is running from women.”
Iyanya made the revelation in an interview with Punch, where he explained why he has chosen to remain single.
He said, “How do I miss the attention of women when I am running away
from them? Check me out, even without music, you think I would not get
“Girls are not an issue, they flock around me and it is even happening as I speak with you. I am not in love with anybody at the
moment because I am focused on a lot of things. When the time comes,
nobody would know.
“When I fall in love again, I am definitely not going to inform the
press and the reason is simple, anytime I step out to tell the world
that this is my girlfriend, I end up losing the girl.
“Over the years, I have learnt to keep it to myself. I would show the world my videos
and shows but not my girlfriend. I would not show the world when we
are kissing. I have learnt from my past mistakes.’’
When asked about people’s concern about his dwindling fame, Inyanya replied: “I feel nothing when people say I am not the Iyanya they used to know
because everything is in their head. What you think about me is not
what is happening in my world and you think such because of what you
see or hear. I am fine, I am blessed and I am still touring the world.
I am happy. So, if you are over there thinking that Iyanya is not who
he used to be, then that is your thought and has nothing to do with
