Alexx Ekubo, Nigerian actor and model, has announced his engagement to Fancy Acholonu, his longtime girlfriend.


The lovebirds took to their individual social media pages to break the news on Monday.

Ekubo shared a loved-up photo of the pair on his Instagram page with a terse post reading “I asked the love of my life @fancyacholonu to marry me…”

Acholonu also confirmed the development in a short note, saying “…& I said yes to the Love of my life @alexxekubo #Falexx.”


Acholonu is a model and actress born in Los Angeles to Nigerian parents.

The entrepreneur has inspired several business outfits including ‘The Fancy Kidz’, an establishment which puts together modelling and acting classes for kids.

Ekubo has also established himself in the Nigerian movie landscape since he made his film debut in ‘Sinners in the House’, a 2005 movie by Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen.


In 2019, the actor had said Nigerians should tolerate those who want to be homosexuals, adding that people should be allowed to be “free & comfortable with their sexual preference”.

“Learn to live & let live, if a person wants to be gay, let them gay in peace, personally I’m not, have never been, & will never be, lets allow pple to be free & comfortable with their sexual preference, stop the name calling & shaming,” he had said.
