When a pretty singer and a handsome actor, both young and single, come together for a make-believe wedding scene on stage, it provides fertile ground for their numerous fans to make guesses about whether they are romantically linked.
That’s exactly what has been happening since Saturday, October 29 when John Dumelo, spotting a smart dark suit came on to carry away Becca in a gorgeous wedding dress at the end of the singer’s Forever song during the Red Lipsticks concert at the Dome of the International Conference Centre.
“He kissed her for real,”; “She seemed so excited about it all,”; “I’m sure there is something secret between them,”; “They look so compatible” were some of the comments passed by the fans.
The two, however, say though they have known each other for about 10 years, there is no secret fire burning in their hearts for each other and that they are simply good friends.
According to Becca, she first met Dumelo when they attended vacation classes at Achimota School in Accra. She was then a student at Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast and Dumelo was in Achimota School. “He was already my big brother’s friend and we got along well when we met,” the singer pointed out. “Forever is a love song and my management decided at one of the rehearsal sessions that we should incorporate a wedding bit to thrill the audience. “There were options on which actor to call but we settled for Dumelo because he is good-looking and a good actor with an appreciable following. He fitted the role best. We were both acting so we had to make it look as real as possible. I’m sorry to disappoint our fans that there is nothing romantic between us.”
Dumelo also stated that he did not hesitate to play the role when contacted by the singer’s management because of his friendship with her. He said though some people say they look compatible, he was engaged to someone else but Becca remained a very good friend.
“My fiancée did not get angry on hearing all the rumor about my supposed romantic links with Becca because she was already aware of our close friendship.”
Becca denied that she was in a relationship with her manager, Kiki Banson. She said since Banson was the only man people saw around her in public, she understood it when rumors flew around that he was dating her. “The truth is that there are other people in my life but I’m a very private person and I like to keep my love life away from public glare. The public would know who I’m dating at the right time,” the Afro-Pop singer said.
