The couple only allegedly recently started dating but social media users are casting their doubts on their relationship due to reports that Pol was paid by Timamu TV as part of Ebitoke’s comedic acts.
However, Pol has denied those claims and said whatever transpired between them was authentic. Ebitoke on the other hand in a radio interview revealed that they are keeping their relationship discreet. “Right now Pol and I are keeping things private, I won’t say anything negative about Bentoke, because he does not post photos of me on social media,” she told Times FM.
