Ultimate Love, the 24/7 romantic reality television show on DStv and GOtv, has delivered its first surprise with Uche’s voluntarily check out of the Love Pad on Monday.
Uche expressed his dissatisfaction at being coupled up with Chris after the live show. He communicated his dissatisfaction to Aunty and requested to be checked out of the Love Pad immediately.
However, that did not happen as Aunty needed him to be sure of his request. She then gave him 24 hours to reconsider his decision which would also provide time for certain modalities to be put in place.
Nevertheless, Chris was still fixated on leaving and after a brief visit to the Love Pad on Monday night, Aunty gave her consent to his request.
A visibly sad Aunty said this was not what she would have wanted but that the essence of the show was to create a space for couples to find love, willingly. With that said, Uche bade farewell to the love guests and made his way out of the Love Pad.
After leaving the Love Pad, Uche explained the rationale behind his decision – in a Twitter thread.
He said he has “nothing against against Chris in all honesty, I see her as a very intelligent & wonderful person but that was all. I admit that for the sake of her emotions I could have been more polite, for that I apologise”.
Uche added that he “didnt want to give her any suggestions nor lead her on in anyway. When people are close to me, I treat them very very specially. I dont want Chris to get drawn in & eventually get heart broken. I know that u all will vilify me even more then. I acted in good faith.
“My regrets are not speaking with Chris about this before leaving the house, & disappointing my friends who already mobilized to support me”.
