Some months back, the news broke that Flavour had put beauty Queen, Sandra Okagbue, in the family way. She put to bed in US on September 27, 2014, but since then Flavour has not made any concrete statement denying the child or accepting it, instead, he has started sharing pictures of himself and another beauty queen, the 2013 MBGN winner, Anna Banner.

It was gathered that both met at a function few months back and hit it off immediately. That casual fling has developed into a full swing affair.

On Thursday, October 2, 2014 we contacted the Ada Ada crooner on the rumour but mum was the word from him and his management. We equally sent them a text, but still they kept sealed lips.

Anna, on the other hand, has been sharing their pictures tagging them with romantic and suggestive lines like “My Boo”.

This has since fuelled the notion that Flavour could be using and dumping beauty queens.

Some of the delectable women he has been romantically linked with are, Beverly Heels, BBA’s Dillish Matthew, Sandra Okagbue and now Anna Banner.
