Popular highlife artiste Chinedu Okoli aka Flavour is telling those it may concern to leave his fiancée alone. Flavour made this appeal through a track on his recently released album titled ‘Blessed.’
On Wednesday, October 24, 2012, Flavour launched his nightclub in Enugu called, ‘2nite Club’ and his new album ‘Blessed.’ Although it was a successful launch, what seems to have caught the attention of many is a track on the album titled ‘Beverly’ which he dedicated to his fiancée Beverly Heels; the song isn’t just a love song, but also a story, a message and a warning.
The song goes…
‘When I went to America, I met one girl, her name na Beverly. All of a sudden, I get enemies. Within within enemies. Tell Nneka, Tell Onyinye, Tell Benjamin, to leave Beverly alone. What did I do to them? Many bad things dem ma talk about her. Many bad things dem ma write about her. Too many people flex say they know her. Everyday I’m always reading on Twitter, Facebook dem ma talk about the matter, say I wanna take Beverly to altar. Within, Within enemies. Tell Nneka, Tell Onyinye, Tell Benjamin, to leave Beverly alone‘.
We were unable to ascertain the identities of the other names mentioned in the song, as Flavour and his manager were unavailable as at press time.
However, what we do know is that on Valentines day this year, Flavour proposed to his girlfriend Beverly Ngozi Ukegbu, aka Beverly Heels, and a day after, the excited model/singer confirmed the engagement on twitter, saying ‘My best Valentine gift was my engagement ring and something also very special .. Good Night everyone and enjoy tonight #XOXO.’
Flavour’s manager Benjamin later told NET in a telephone conversation that the engagement was indeed true and both artistes were preparing for marriage. He however refused to comment on the rumours that Beverly was pregnant, which many claimed was what she meant by ‘…and something very special’ in her tweet.
The couple allegedly began dating after they met at a gig in Houston, Texas in December 2011, where they both performed separately, and met again in January 2012, when Beverly was said to have paid him a three-week visit.
According to Flavour’s comments in the ‘Beverly’ track, it appears that some people close to the artiste, which also includes his manger Benjamin, are unhappy about his relationship and are trying to break them up. But, he seems to have made up his mind regardless, to marry her and wants them (Nneka, Onyinye and Benjamin) to get off her (Beverly’s) case.
Beverly Heels (aka B.Heels) is aspiring Pop singer who currently resides in Houston, Texas. Her nickname ‘Heels’ was created because she always wears heels.
