Michael Essien Dated Nadia Buari
Initially, rumors circulated that former Ghanaian international Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien was dating Nadia Buaria.
Later events revealed that the two lovebirds were ‘chopping’ themselves.
Michael Essien and Nadia’s almost perfect love affair ended in 2010 when the center of their relationship could no longer hold.
Their breakup was said to have been caused by Michael Essien’s then ‘personal managress,’ Mrs Akosua Opuni, who would later become his (Essien’s) wife.
There were rumors of the former lovebirds reuniting in July 2012 when new photos of them posing together at the birthday event of Ghanaian media personality, Nana Aba Anamoah, held at Villaggio Primavera surfaced on the internet.
Nadia Buari, on the other hand, denied that her shattered relationship with Michael Essien had been rekindled.
“We were trying to take pictures and the media paparazzi were also taking pictures. We were to take just two shots but they were still taking a lot [of] pictures and I was really shy so I tried to leave and Essien was just trying to cover my face that’s all,” Nadia Buari explained.
Jim Ike Dated Nadia Buari
Following her breakup with Michael Essien, Nadia’s ‘hit list’ included Nigeria’s ‘bad boy,’ Jim Ike.
On May 23, 2013, the two lovers, who couldn’t keep their love affair a secret any longer, confirmed it on Twitter, with Jim Ike writing, “She calls me Skittles. I gave her the name Space. The gift of laughter, companionship, and trust is priceless. BFF. Love is a f***ing beautiful thang!”.
Nadia Buari also shared her thoughts:
“There comes a time in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will.
Skittles is his name, and Space is mine.”
The couple then went on a European vacation in November of 2013.
Whilst in Rome, the Nollywood ‘bad boy’ actor hired a mariachi band to perform while they dined at a restaurant.
Jim Ike got down on a knee and proposed to his then girlfriend, Nadia Buari.
Unfortunately for Nadia in that same year (2013), her relationship with the Nollywood actor could not withstand the test of time as rumours of Jim Ike having a bad temper, being a womanizer and not paying attention to her (Nadia) surfaced online.
