Popular Lagos auto dealer and businessman IVD made it to the headlines again for flaunting his birthday gifts from his new lover.
Ikechukwu Darry Ogbonna (real name), lost his wife, Bimbo Martins, on the 15th of October 2022. She died due to an injury sustained from a fire incident that resulted from violence in her matrimonial home.
All these happened in their mansion in Megamound estate, Lekki, Lagos. IVD was charged with involuntary manslaughter by the Lagos state government. However, he pleaded not guilty and was granted bail.
Moral of the story: Na person wey die lose!
This time around, netizens are wowed by how soon he moved on from mourning the death of his wife, the mother of his 5 kids.
Blessing CEO, self-styled relationship coach, and social media influencer was suspected to be his new lover for two main reasons. First, she recently got freed from jail for issues IVD had with his late wife’s family. Second, she flaunted her man for getting her name tattooed on his wrist and IVD’s post confirmed he is the lover
