Aisha Mohammed Buba Mashio, the Nigerian artist, has dismissed online rumours claiming she planned to wed Mai Mala Buni, the Yobe state governor.


In a now-deleted post, an X user claimed he had gotten wind of the proposed wedding on Facebook and also wished both of them a “happy married life”.

“I saw on Facebook that my Gov Mai Mala Buni is getting married to the talented young painter @Sumayyah_mashio,” he wrote.

“I wish them a happy married life. Please take care of this young lady, Your Excellency, sir. One of the biggest projects of his second tenure. Allah bada zaman lafiya.”


Reacting in a post via her X page on Friday, Aisha shared a picture of the supposed wedding invitation while labeling it as “fake news”.

The Yobe state-born painter also asked the public to “disregard” the news, adding that she was not “getting married”.

“Disregard any fake news, I AM NOT GETTING MARRIED!!!” the artist wrote.


Born Aisha Mohammed Buba, Sumayyah is a self-taught artist and a 200-level student of Public Administration at the Yobe State University (YSU).


The 20-year-old started painting from a tender age as a hobby but officially made it a business in 2021.
