Ignatius and the love and relationship programme itself, have been trending on social media since its last episode on Sunday, May 3, 2020.
This follows an interesting stunt he pulled after came up on stage and turned down interests from beautiful ladies. As the game goes, a man comes up on stage and 10 female participants will show their interest in him by turning their rush (light) on.
When a guy gets more than one rush, he goes through a process to select the one he would want to go on a date with. Rarely does a guy get more than two rushes on.
On Sunday’s edition, Ignatius swept almost everybody off their feet getting seven women, including Freelove who is known to rarely turn her rush on, drooling and wanting him.
But in unprecedented fashion, Ignatius refused to take any of the girls as he turned off all of their rushes leaving one of them, Freelove, furious.
Following Ignatius’ antics, many social media users started hailing him and described him as a legend.
Not long after his newfound fame, reports started surfacing on social media that Ignatius was already in a relationship. While some claimed he was already married with two children, others also said he was about to get married.
Photos of a lady alleged to be his girlfriend and their supposed wedding invitation have even been circulated on social media.
But the handsome-looking Ignatius has suggested that the reports about those love relationships were false. In a post on his Facebook page, he did not know he was married with two kids or had so many exes on social media than reality if not for his appearance on Date Rush.
“If no be date rush like I no kwn say…I marry with two kidsdate rush have also made me kwn say I had more ex’s on social media Dan reality…be true to your self n always be real…love goes where love is…have a blessed week…don’t try to be who you can’t be…
“A Good Samaritan did this photo for me…where ever u are bossu you are blessed.. Still keep your comments n insult coming,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Ignatius has defended his actions and explained why he took such a decision, especially in the case of Freelove.
According to him, he rejected her because he was not looking at the programme alone but what was going to happen in real life.
For him, Freelove was only fantasizing about him being the kind of man that she wants but was going to give him stress in real life.
