Former beauty queen and Miss Charismatic organizer Ronke Tiamiyu a.k.a Roney, who was engaged before now has addressed the controversy surrounding the proposal.
28-year-old Ronke Tiamiyu who admitted that she doesn’t love the man whose proposal she accepted, noted that she made a mistake. She also noted that no amount of pressure will make her marry the man she doesn’t love, as she is fully aware that her mates are married with kids.
This is not the only time a Nigerian beauty queen will be in the news for dumping a man she is engaged to. In 2016, a former beauty queen called off a serious relationship with her late friend’s husband after the man was charged to court by the EFCC over allegations of fraud.
Dr. Bright Echefu was arraigned before Justice S.C Amadi of the State High Court, Port Harcourt, Rivers on one-count charge bordering on Issuance of Dud Cheque and Obtaining by false pretense.
He was said to have received a computer accessories, laptops and stationeries which were delivered to his business premises at Touchville Hotel, Ada George Road, Port Harcourt by the victim. After the supply, he issued a post dated UBA cheque of N1.165m with a further agreement to pay the balance of N150k on a later date.
But the cheque was returned unpaid due to insufficient funds in his account. All efforts made to recover the money by the victim, were futile. Justice Amadi adjourned the matter to 25th January, 2016 for hearing of bail application and ordered that Echefu be remanded in prison custody.
Echefu made headlines after getting engaged to Florence Esu, a friend of his late wife, Cindy Nzeribe, barely 4 months after she died while pregnant with their 3rd child. Echefu and Florence were berated him for not mourning Cindy long enough before kicking off their romantic relationship.
However after his arraignment, Florence Esu announced that they’re no longer together. She however claimed that their engagement was a prank, as she is very much single and also ready to mingle.
