Last year, an online publication claimed Benoise Actress and singer, Ella Martins was reportedly in a ‘relationship’ with Genevieve Nnaji after they took a picture at an event.
The singer, Ella has finally refuted the claim in her latest interview with Vanguard newspaper.
On how the allegation came about, she said:
What happened is that Genny and I were in a club in Lagos and her phone got missing.
Later, I think a paparazzi or someone got hold of it and started sharing some contents about me and Genny online. I don’t see anything abnormal in the pictures but people started talking that we must be lesbians and all. As normal persons and friends, we do take normal pictures at home and in other places, but I don’t know why the online magazine showed Genevieve and I kissing, I am surprised and don’t know where they got those pictures from. We kissed, but it was nothing extraordinary. It was normal kiss between girls. I mean girls do kiss each other normally, even guys do too. When I was dating Fally Ipupa we used to kiss and now that we are separated and are good friends, we still continue kissing like we used to. My fear is I receive strange calls saying that in a few days’ time they will be releasing more pictures about us.
Clearing further about her relationship with Nnaji, she said:
We have been good friends since 2004. We met when Kennis Music organised an award, and since then, we have been good friends. We talk often and whenever I am in Lagos, we meet up and have fun as friends. I have had no peace since the pictures leaked online. Everybody now calls me Genny’s wife back home. I am neither a lesbian nor is Genevieve. We are just two close friends, showing profound emotions for each other by kissing.
