Is Niyonizera’s ex coming to Rwanda?
It looks like drama has taken up permanent residence at the Safi/Niyonizera camp. Since the couple’s wedding, the two have barely had time to do what newlyweds do - bask in marital bliss. It started with Safi’s ex-girlfriend, Parfine Umutesi, who caused a social media stir after an audio of her ‘bad-mouthing’ her ex leaked. Fans of the artiste proved just how loyal they are, going by the hostility that came her way after the audio leaked on WhatsApp.
Now, word reaching our desk is that Rick Hilton, who is said to be the ex-husband of Safi Madiba’s current wife, Judith Niyonizera, is planning to come to Rwanda.
It is said that Hilton, who is based in Canada, was in a relationship with Niyonizera for some time during Niyonizera’s stay in Canada. However, after Niyonizera and Safi’s wedding, Hilton came out with allegations of theft concerning his ex.
To make the public believe just how angry he was, Hilton released semi-nude photos of Niyonizera just weeks after her wedding and he has told different media outlets that he filed a case against Niyonizera in Canada.
If the rumour about Hilton taking a trip to Rwanda holds any water, the question is, what does he plan to do? Sources speculate that he wants to file a case against her here. Is it true? We will definitely keep you posted.
