Since Nana King, the Ghanaian-born international rap music star, featured in one of the tracks in Gba, the album of Nigeria's crossover actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, pressmen in his country have been on his neck. Nana King, a former member of Tupac Shakur's Thug Life band, has been having a tough time with Ghanaian journalists over his real relationship with the sultry mother of four. While the chubby rap star insisted that his relationship with Omo Sexy, as Omotola is otherwise referred to, is strictly on a professional level, the news about the two song birds' sizzling romance has spread like wild fire in John Kufuor's country.

Speaking with NollywoodReel during his visit to Nigeria recently, the happily married Nana King confessed that the scandal almost made his cordial relationship with wife, Nana Queen, to hit the rocks. “But for the trust that my wife has in me, it would have been a different story entirely. My home was almost broken because of Omotola. But unknown to my people, there is nothing intimate between me and her, apart from the music stuff,” King stated. According to him, “maybe because we are very close, she visits my studio whenever she comes to Ghana, and the people there know that I'm working with her. But sincerely speaking, I can tell you there are no other strings attached to the relationship.”

However, King has made his intention to join Nollywood known. According to him, “it's an industry I have been admiring for a very long time, and I watch their movies a lot. Though I have been acting in Ghanaian movies, coming to do that in Nigeria will be a dream come true. “I have personally studied the likes of Teco Benson, Zeb and Chico Ejiro and their works, so I hope to work with them soon.”
