On her part, Mdee shared the same video and accompanied it with a lengthy caption wherein she described Rotimi as one who “saved my life in ways only a man appointed and anointed by God could.”

“The answer is yes! yes to my best friend, yes to my soulmate, yes to the love of my life. Over and over and over again in every lifetime. How you located me in this time and loved me in ways only you could is a testament to God’s divine order of things and favor and grace. And suddenly it all makes sense. New initials V.A,” she wrote.

Rotimi had made their relationship public in 2019 after sharing a loved-up photo of himself and Mdee.


The singer made his way into acting with the role of Darius Morrison, a drug dealer in the movie ‘Boss’. He has also starred in other films like ‘Power’, ‘Divergent’, ‘Black Nativity’ and ‘Battle Creek’.

50 Cent, an American rapper, signed Rotimi to G-Unit Records, his music label, in 2015. He later released ‘Jeep Music Vol.1’, his debut EP, in 2017.

In June 2019, the singer had narrated how his father made him save all the proceeds he earned from staring as Andre Coleman, in ‘Power’, a popular American television series.
