“The love was deeply felt, thank you,” he wrote in a terse post.

Umoh was one of the finalists during the sixth edition of the reality TV show titled ‘Shine Ya Eye’.

While the show lasted, he was in the news over his seemingly romantic relationship with Liquorose, the edition’s runner-up.

Since the show ended, Emmanuel, who is the CEO of Hairlab Salon in Port Harcourt, has continued to enjoy fame in the fashion landscape.

The development also stretches the trend of fans donating cash and other gift items to their favourite housemates from the show on their birthdays.

In April, Liquorose also received a brand new Mercedes Benz and the sum of N14.5 million from her fans to mark her 27th birthday.
