Why D’banj and Genevieve Nnaji Broke Up


Some of you think the relationship between D’banj and Genevieve Nnaji was a publicity stunt…it wasn’t! The sexy stars dated off and on between 2009 and early 2012. D’banj recently opened up to Toolz on the Juice about his relationship with Ms Nnaji and said he doesn’t know who dumped who.

Genevieve was a friend…(but now) I haven’t seen her…I don’t know who dumped who.

One could tell for certain that Genevieve did the dumping. Not necessarily because she wanted to, but because she had no choice. There were just too many women around D’banj. It seemed at a point, a lot of women wanted a piece of the Kokomaster, including a close friend of the actress who allegedly began an affair with D’banj behind her back. Genny decided she’d had enough and ended things in late 2011.

Genevieve and D’banj briefly reconciled in early 2012, but ended things for good after D’banj started flaunting his relationship with Ghanian actress, Nadia Buari.

The relationship which began in late 2009 after the two met at the airport, became public after D’banj granted an exclusive INTERVIEW to Stella Dimoko Korkus in March 2010, expressing his feelings for Miss Nnaji.

D’banj said:

“We have been trying to keep this quiet but yes, I am dating Genevieve Nnaji. I am in love with her. It’s been long I felt this way about anyone. I don’t know what other words to use to qualify my feelings. She’s my baby, she’s my every thing and I love her.”

People in the know claim that it wasn’t only the other women in D’banj’s life that ended their relationship but also because Genny herself was not committed to the relationship. D’banj was said to have been hurt after he heard that Genny had also allegedly dated another popular Nigerian singer.


  1. Genevive is by far an older, more experienced gal to date Dbang. If they actually dated then its just the thing abt women when such a famous chap is all over her. But a relationship between these two can never work. @genny needs a very strong, reserved quiet man as a husband. Not a very popular guy like the musician.

  2. Its rare for celebrities relationship to work out. From the onset I just knew that nothin good will come out of the relationship, not even when D’banj featured Genny in his Fall in Love hit song. Genny cannot just compete with those hundreds of gals milling around D’banj. Kudos to Charlse Johnson’s comment.

  3. I think Genevieve should find someone older and more matured. D’banj is just young for her especially in our present naija. The case is like when tonto was dating wizkid. All these are just mere publicity stunts. Celebrities never date themselves successfully. It is hard to see such.

  4. It is the habit of every celebrity 2 go after women, after going 2ru dem dey dump dem n that d reward of doz who money is dey put in dia mind first interms of dia relationship. I believe if D banj is a polper she wunt hav date him

  5. if they were ment for each other, definitly, they must get back together, whether celebrity or not.
