Nigerian-American actress, Yvonne Orji and her Nigerian American NFL Athlete beau, Emmanuel Acho who’s also an ESPN Analyst have broken up.
The 35-year-old Insecure star who began dating Acho in the middle of 2018
broke the news on her ‘Jesus and Jollof podcast’ with friend and author Luvvie Ajayi.
She said: “I am newly single. But before you start saying ‘Oh Nooooo!’ Guys, hey. You see me? I’m happy. I’m actually so happy. Luvvie I remember, Luvvie called me and was like, ‘It’s okay, you can be mad!’ ‘I was like, no I’m OK.’I was like, ‘no it really is alright and I’m about to go furniture shopping.’ I came back and I was like, ‘I got a couch.”
She continued: “I just have to say, the reason I am so good and so happy is because I know how God works,” she said. “I have seen God’s MO so many times, that like in the way that you can be like, ‘Aw man, I thought this was it! I thought this was the one!’ God be like, ‘Oh that’s what you thought? I got the goods for you.’ It happened in my career when someone offered me a show and I was like, ‘This is it!’ and then the show went to nowhere. I got borderline depressed. Cut to ‘Insecure.’ Cut to my life has changed.”
