In recent years, award-winning Nigerian actor Timini Egbuson has not only been on the news for his career achievements but for having a colorful love life. Widely regarded as the ladies man, the handsome actor has won the hearts of many ladies with his looks and charisma. Most of his fans are females, and they occupy about 85 percent of his fanbase. As a result, many weren’t surprised when Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend was being trolled on Twitter by his alleged side chick in September 2020.
The actor’s escapades with women landed him the No. 1 spot on the microblogging platform at the time. Despite the buzz his romantic life caused on social media platforms, Timini appeared unbothered and never replied to his critics. He has moved on with his love life and has recently been linked with many gorgeous ladies in the entertainment industry. As one of the eligible young bachelors in Nollywood, many are curious to know who Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend is. Here is all the gist about his love life and the controversies it has courted.
Timini Egbuson Might Possibly Be Single
The Skinny Girl in Transit star was known to be in a relationship that went public in 2020. However, he later got involved in a heavy controversy regarding his romantic affairs and then stated that he is still searching for the right woman to make his fiancée in an interview with Tribune Online in December 2020. Subsequently, Timini Egbuson was romantically connected to some of his female colleagues, with the recent link-up being with the 2018 Big Brother Naija first runner-up, CeeC.
The pair sparked dating rumors in April 2021 when they were spotted sharing a smooch in a viral video. However, they are yet to comment about the rumored love affair. Even though many currently assume that Timini Egbuson and the reality TV star are dating, a few believe that the video is one of CeeC’s stunts. In March 2020, Cynthia Nwadiora, professionally known as CeeC, pulled a stunt on her fans by posting photos of passionately kissing Ghanaian actor Mawuli Gavor on her Instagram handle.
It was later revealed that the romantic photos were ad campaigns for her clothing line, Cegar. At the moment, it’s quite unclear whether the loved-up video with Egbuson is one of her stunts or an insight into their love life, as both haven’t cleared the air regarding the viral video. As a result, we won’t conclude yet if CeeC is Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend. It’s quite possible the actor is still single and was only having a good time with the social media influencer.
Why The Actor’s Love Affair With Lydia Agahan Caused a Media Uproar
Timini Egbuson was discovered to be in a relationship with Nigerian model Lydia Agahan in April 2020, as he was frequently commenting on her Instagram posts. The love affair went public, thus facing heavy scrutiny due to the age difference between the lovebirds. Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend was 20 years old (though she was reported to be 19 by several media outlets), while the Tinsel actor was 32.
Following the age gap of 12 years between the two, some feminists backlashed Egbuson, citing that he was too old to date Lydia. Others criticized the relationship based on their belief that Lydia Agahan was very young to be dating someone of Timini’s age. Some people, however, still supported the relationship, stating that Lydia was no longer a minor and had well past the legal age of consent in Nigeria, which is 18.
At the peak of the controversy on social media, the former couple replied to their critics by sharing a loved-up video on Instagram. They continued going strong until the relationship hit rock bottom due to a side chick saga in late 2020.
The Cheating Scandal That Allegedly Ended His Relationship With The Model
On September 13th, 2020, Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend tweeted a cryptic message that the actor’s side chick, Toju, claimed to have been directed at her and replied the next day. In her tweets, she stated that Lydia had threatened to fight her for having an affair with her man, whom she referred to as “one for the streets.” In one of her tweets, she revealed that she had slept with Lydia Agahan’s boyfriend multiple times, and Lydia won’t do anything about it. Toju’s friends also joined her in dragging Lydia on Twitter.
They alleged in their tweets that Timini had many side chicks and advised the model to focus on herself and stop fighting for a man meant for the streets. Also, Toju threatened to destroy Lydia’s face if she calls her out again in public. Consequently, Timini Egbuson’s girlfriend reportedly sent Toju private messages about taking legal actions against her for threatening her in public. With Lydia threatening to sue her boyfriend’s alleged side chick, she deleted her tweets. At present, all that is known about the Fifty actor’s side chick is the name she bears on Twitter, Toju (@Toritse_).
Following the revelation about Timini Egbuson cheating on Lydia, their relationship became sour as they reportedly unfollowed each other on Instagram afterward. When asked about the cheating scandal in his interview with Tribune Online, he stated that anybody could just cook up stories and start writing things they want to write, and it’s not meant for him to start affirming or denying them. He also stated that his relationship with Lydia didn’t work out, and they have parted ways.
