Nigerian movie star Alex Ekubo and his American-born fiance have called it quits, cancelling their engagement.

Barely a few months after the duo publicised their relationship and got engaged, their relationship has now ended.

Alex’s fiance took to her Instagram page to confirm their breakup.

“Hey guys, I am writing to inform you all officially that I have ended my relationship and engagement and I have called off the wedding with Alexx Ekubo.

“I am aware this may be a shock to many people. I made the best decision for myself, because it is important that everyone finds happiness and lives in their truth. At this time, my family and I ask for you all to please respect our privacy” she said.

The reason for the shocking separation is yet to be confirmed.

The couple has now proceeded to unfollow each other.
