I HAVE FOUND LOVE –Becca Confesses

Songstress Becca, who got married over the weekend, wants everyone, including those who are wishing doom for her marriage, to know that she has found love.

According to her, she is in love and loves her husband equally as she loves herself.

Becca got married to her Nigerian boyfriend, Tobi Sanni Daniel, on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at a secret location in Ghana.

Tobi Sanni Daniel, 41, has been described as a ‘rich’ Nigerian banker and an 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 such as the Nigerian Ministry of Sports, Nigerian Ministry of Youth Development and Ovation Carol (under Ovation International Magazine).

The marriage ceremony attracted different reactions, with many people congratulating them for their union. However, some people have started predicting doom for their marriage basing their arguments on relationships by other Ghanaian entertainers with Nigeria partners that never worked.

But Becca is not perturbed. “I found love in you and I’ve learnt to love me too…,” she said in a post to her husband on Instagram on Monday. The post came with a beautiful picture of the two lovebirds staring at each other.

Becca joins entertainers like John Dumelo and Sarkodie, who all got married this year.

In the past, her closeness with highlife artiste Bisa K Dei gave birth to rumours of a possible love affair between them but they both denied ever being any relationship.

BECCA SET TO MARRY ON AUGUST 18

Ghanaian Afropop Singer, Becca is reportedly set to wed on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Reports earlier had indicated that the Songstress, Rebecca Akosua Acheampomaa Acheampong, will be walking down the aisle with her “Mr Right” this year. The venue, though, was not disclosed but we gather it will surely be held in Accra.

In the runup to the big day Becca celebrated her birthday on Thursday, August 15th and actress Yvonne Nelson who is Becca’s close friend sent her an adorable birthday message which all but confirms that the nuptials are indeed coming on.

Writing on Instagram, Yvonne said: “I call her BECS happy birthday superstar @beccafrica can’t wait to see you this Saturday. I’m gonna smile soooo hard. God bless youI’m def cooking yn* jollof for you.”

That definitely makes it clear something special is going down Saturday and it’s Becca’s engagement.

The “Nana” song hitmaker had disclosed in an interview with Sunyani-based Suncity Radio’s Showbiz 971 that she will also be getting married as most of her colleagues are now taking that path.

Now, the question on most people’s lips is which man she would be getting married to. The musician had once shared a photo of a man she called the love of her life and covered his face so that nobody would recognize him or know who he is.

She was spotted wearing a ring sometime back and fans wondered if she had secretly married her ‘faceless’ man but it seems Becca is now gearing up for that.

The singer was recently in South Africa to promote her new song, “Nana” featuring Sarkodie and she shared a lot of videos on Instagram showing her boogying skills in one of the studios she granted an interview.

So congrats to Rebecca Acheampong — both on her birthday and her upcoming retirement from ‘all over the place’ association of Ghana.

BECCA UNFOLLOWS EVERYONE ON INSTAGRAM

Afro pop songstress Rebecca Acheampong popularly known as ‘Becca’ has deleted most of her pictures on Instagram and posted black and white pictures of her on Instagram following bleaching rumour.

Could it be that the 33-year old singer is just a lover of monochrome or it is a deliberate attempt to sway people’s attention off her alleged skin bleaching?

Well our guesses might be different, but the Ultimate entertainment desk has seen a sudden change and trend on the “African Woman” hit singer’s page on Instagram @BeccaAfrica

As much as any individual cannot go without noticing the hourglass-shaped of Becca, we cannot also go without noticing that Becca with over ten years experience in the music and entertainment industry, has deleted most of her pictures on her page leaving her with just 43 pictures.

The singer who prides herself as a humanitarian now edits her pictures into black and white.

Her fans have been wondering if it’s an attempt to avoid people from comparing her old pictures with her new pictures.

Another change noticed is that Becca has unfollowed everyone leaving her with 1.1 million following.
