Don’t we just love when our Nigerian celebrities set it off and fall in love (or lust) with each other? It has come to our attention that beauty queen turned rapper Munachi Abii is romantically involved with Pop group, L.O.S band member Olade Brisbe better known as Briss.
The couple, we are told, have been in a hot romance for the past few months and they’ve managed to keep it under the wraps with only very close friends in the know.
We are also told Muna has confided in her close friends, telling them she’s in love with the 18-year-old rapper. Briss, an upcoming rapper started gaining buzz when the Urban-Pop music group L.O.S (the group consists of three other members – Yung, Tomi and Bridge) signed with Storm Records and released their popular single ‘Bad guy P’.
Briss who is currently an undergraduate in a Dubai university spends time shuttling Lagos and the U.A.E but his schooling hasn’t stopped the ‘lovers’ from hooking up – sources tell us Briss, (who is from quite a wealthy family) has on several occasions flown Muna over just to be with her.
Briss last April posted a photo of himself and Muna cooling off in a Dubai beach. ‘At the beach.. Ofcourse Muna being a mess lol #dubai’, Briss wrote as he posted the photo on his Instagram. Muna in turn has been quite supportive of Briss and his group’s music. If she’s not tweeting about their new songs, she’s chatting up with the other band members.
Some dated tweets between Muna and Briss also suggest there’s something holding on between them:
@muna01: ‘@BrisB_LOS duuuude wen r u back?
@BrisB_LOS: very very soon muna! booked a flight already tho. How you now?
@muna01: @BrisB_LOS: chillin boo.
@BrisB_LOS: hope your good sha.
But speaking with NET over the telephone Muna denies being romantically involved with Briss. ‘That sounds ridiculous, I’m in a relationship with someone else’, Muna told NET.
Muna turns 26 this November. In 2007, she won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria beauty pageant.
Before the MBGN crown, she had however shown interest in music, rapping under the name Babyrella. She recorded a rap duet with Terry tha Rapman whom it is rumoured she dated at that time.
In 2010, she changed her name to Muna and signed a management deal with Ayo Shonaiya’s RMG Company, launching her music career.
She has gone on to feature with the likes of Waje, Kel, Michael Word, Banky W, DJ Jimmy JATT andPsquare.
And Briss is not the first Nigerian artiste Muna has been rumoured to be involved with. We are told she has also allegedly been involved with several other acts including D’banj, M.I, Wizkid and Peter Okoye. Of course the sister continues to – vehemently – deny these unconfirmed reports.
