When news filtered all over about Toyin Aimakhu's romantic affair with Tinsel actor, Adeniyi Johnson, it took many by surprise. This may have been as a result of the furore Toyin's last relationship with ex-boyfriend, Kunle Soyombo had caused when both ended their relationship some months ago.
Tales of their romance is the latest gist in the Yoruba movie industry and the two love birds tell whoever cares to listen that theirs is a relationship ordained from heaven.
Though not many people know when the relationship started ,sources close to them informed Nigeriafilms.com that they met several months after Toyin’s 2-year romance with her ex-lover Kunle Soyombo crashed. Since then it has been a lovey-dovey affair, except when they are busy working on different locations, they are together sharing great moments together.
One of the new lovebirds, Adeniyi, fondly called Niyi, has opened up on his sizzling romance with the top Yoruba actress. For him, keeping his relationship with Toyin will make him be blind and dumb to many negative stories that would be written about his actress sweetheart. The handsome dude agreed to speak with Nigeriafilms.com on how he met the actress. “We met on locations of ‘Ade Owala’ and ‘Osas Omoge Benin’ That was early in the year. I have always loved the way she acts in movies. I appreciate her delivery and intelligence. There is more to Toyin than what she does in movies but unfortunately stardom has made all of these not to be visible. Toyin is an intelligent lady that I have admired several years before we met. I had wanted to be her very good friend. So meeting her, I was determined the only thing I could do was also let her realize that ‘I am also an intelligent person. We only exchanged phone numbers then. So I called and sent text messages to her.”
how did he eventually make his intention known to her?
“Interestingly, we were paired as boyfriend and girlfriend in a yet to be produced movie, ‘Oro Omo’ produced by Funke Akindele. I was meant to kiss her. The production crew expected me to fidget but in my mind it was an opportunity to properly express myself to her. Eventually she came to the location we saw each other and that was going to be the third time of getting close to her. We eventually acted the role but she didn’t kiss me! But I kissed her for the first time on her birthday.
Asked if he is not bothered about Toyin’s stardom. ‘Niyi smiled and said, “I see her as Toyin Aimakhu and not as an actress. Though sometimes I deal with like an actress but ‘am not carried away because of the fact that she is a star. She is my woman and I love her.”
How were they able to keep the relationship away from the public ?
“It was a decision we both took and I believe that has helped us. I kept reminding her we had to keep the affairs away for months and she complied.”
Like every other actress Toyin has to deal with rumours and negative stories about her.
How does Niyi react to these false negative stories and rumours?
“To date an actress, a man needs to be blind and dumb. I have heard several stories which I know are not true. For instance, a lady worked up to me on a movie location to tell me, “I heard you are dating Toyin. She has dated all members of Adebayo Salami family who are actors.” I told her, “You forgot the eldest son who is not an actor who resides in Abuja? Toyin has also dated him.” The lady was so cold that she shamefully walked away from where I was.”
There are strong indications that the love birds are planning a family introduction for December.

He has also acted in a few Yoruba movies like, Jenifa, Hajia Jemila, Ami Agbara and several other yet to be released movies.
