Becca, born Rebecca Acheampong, on Saturday August 18, 2018 got married to her Nigerian boyfriend, Tobi Sanni Daniel.

They tied the knot on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at a secret location in Ghana without media attendance.

Tobi Sanni Daniel, 41, has been described as a ‘rich’ Nigerian banker and entertainment executive. He owns the company, State of the Mind Entertainment, which manages artistes like Ice Prince Zamani and manages entertainment accounts for major institutions.

His photos on social media showed him posing with superstars Jay Z, Snoop Lion (Snoop Dogg) and others.

He studied Business Administration at the University of Ilorin (BSC with Honours) and has an MSC in International Business & Management University of Bedfordshire, Luton, UK.

He is also an economist and worked as banker for a period of 10 years in Triumph Bank, Liberty Bank, Equatorial Trust Bank and the Bank PHB from 2000 to 2010.

His company manages the entertainment accounts of the Nigerian Ministry of Sports, Nigerian Ministry of Youth Development and Ovation Carol (under Ovation International Magazine).

Becca has managed to keep their relationship out of public eye until a few days to their marriage in Ghana.

Their marriage ceremony was strictly-by-invitation and was attended by celebrities from Ghana, some of whom were bridesmaids. Among them were Yvonne Nelson, Joselyn Dumas, Jackie Appiah, Zynnell Zuh, Soraya Mensah and a host of others.

Ghana’s Tourism Minister, Catherine Afeku, was also present as well as Becca’s former manager, Kiki Banson.

Becca, who is currently signed to Zylofon Music, recently released new songs, including ‘Na Wash’, which has huge Nigerian influence. It is now making sense to her followers why she has done that. In the past, her closeness to highlife artiste Bisa K Dei gave birth to rumours of a possible love affair between them but they both denied they were going out. She now joins the likes of rapper Sarkodie and actor John Dumelo as celebrities who have gotten married in 2018.
