Favour Ibex, a native of Imo state, expressed his distress on Facebook after Amaka Gift, his gospel singer girlfriend of nine years, ended their relationship. A post that has since been deleted circulated on social media, showing images of Favour and Amaka during happier times, alongside pictures of Amaka with her new partner. Favour recounted their journey, revealing that he introduced Amaka to gospel music and helped establish her online presence.
Favour clarified that he took down Amaka’s social media accounts after realizing she tried changing the passwords upon discovering their income-generating potential. He mentioned that he made the decision due to feelings of betrayal, stemming from their years of trust, love, commitment, and his substantial investments.
Describing their history, Favour shared that they dated for three years before he introduced Amaka to gospel music in 2017, originating from her involvement in a local church choir. He was instrumental in setting up and growing her social media profiles. He financed efforts to propel her music career, investing in newspaper ads, radio promotion, CD production, outfit branding, and even organizing concerts. He revealed he furnished her living space and established a studio for her to comfortably focus on her music and studies. He emphasized that his dedication to her comfort and success was driven by his plans for their future together.
Favour mentioned that their relationship was known to their parents, who had offered blessings. He noted that even when Amaka’s father was ill, he requested that Favour be treated well when paying her bride price due to Favour’s significant contributions to her career.
Favour expressed his pain that despite his restraint in pursuing physical intimacy to honor their faith, Amaka chose to end their relationship. He highlighted how he kept their relationship private to support her career, even acting as her manager.
In a conversation, Favour confirmed the authenticity of his story.
Various internet users shared their opinions on the situation. Some suggested that sexual intimacy is crucial in a relationship, while others criticized Amaka for quickly moving on to another partner. Some speculated about allegations of mistreatment, and others advised against investing heavily in a non-marital relationship due to potential disappointments.
This case serves as a reminder to exercise caution in relationships before formal commitment, considering potential outcomes and being prepared for unforeseen changes.
