I’m not dating IVD— Blessing CEO opens up

SELF-acclaimed relationship expert Blessing Okoro, aka Blessing CEO, caught a lot of flak when it was alleged that she was dating a businessman, Ikechukwu Ogbonna, aka IVD, who had recently lost his wife in controversial circumstances.

However, the mother of two has stated that the fact that IVD tattooed her name on his body was not proof that they were in an intimate relationship. 

She said, “One can tattoo anybody’s name on one’s hand. I have Denrele’s name on my hand; does it mean I am dating him? I have more than five people’s names on my hand, and we are not related. IVD also has his (late) wife’s name, her face and names of all his children tattooed on his body. I did not know IVD as of the time the matter was trending. I defended him innocently. If I had something to do with him, I would not even say a word.”

Speaking on her controversial outfits, which critics have described as ‘tacky’, Okoro said, “I dress very classy. Many are just looking for something to talk about. You can say my outfits are a bit controversial, but I wear clothes depending on where I am going. You do not expect me to wear a suit to the beach, or call me tacky when I wear a bikini.”

Shedding light on her latest encounter with the police, Okoro stated that she was tricked into their net. She said, “I was ambushed and taken to court. The woman who made a complaint against me accused me of contributing to the death of her younger sister, but that is not true. I never knew or met them before. I talked about the case like every other topic on social media. I don’t know why she picked on me. She was just looking for clout, but I did not give her that attention.”
