Ycee was not joking when he put up the photo of Genevieve Nnaji in April 2016 just to declare her his woman crush.
In a new interview with LIB, the Jagaban rapper opened up for the first time about how he feels for the 37-year-old screen goddess, because when he was asked if there was any female in the industry he wishes to kick off a relationship with, the 24-year-old rapper said: “Genevieve Nnaji of course.”
Asked why her name easily jumped out of his mouth, he said, “I didn’t have to think about it. I like her so much because she’s beautiful, she’s smart and successful too.”
And Ycee isn’t worried about the age gap because to him, she doesn’t look 37. “It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t even look like she’s older than me.”
However, Ycee clarified that he doesn’t like ‘cougars’.
He said, “I only like and love Genevieve Nnaji. Yes, she’s older than I, but she still looks amazing.”
Ycee is not the first artiste to crush on the actress.
For singer Skales, his declaration of love for Nnaji backfired, because sources revealed that not long after he dropped the song ‘No Time’ where he mentioned Nnaji as one of the stars he would like to date, the actress threatened to slap him for disrespecting her in his song. Reportedly, EME boss Banky W had to step in, noting that he had asked Skales to apologise to the actress.
Now, Ycee is not only crushing on the legendary actress, he wishes for a relationship. “Sometimes, I do question myself if she’s actually older than me. But on a serious note, I’d love to date her; I know she can give me motherly care,” he told LIB.
And asked if he would marry the actress if she accepted him, he said, “I have never really thought about that part but if it’s meant to happen between us, it’s fine. There are situations where younger people marry the older ones. But if my mother watches this interview, am so dead.”
