Actress Yvonne Okoro was last week spotted with famous South African actor Hlomla Dandala, at the La Beach Hotel, one of Ghana’s top class hotels in Accra.
The two stars looked like they were preparing for a dinner date, even though close aides say otherwise.
Hlomla Dandala is a South African award-winning actor, presenter and director best known for his television roles as Derek Nyathi in ‘Isidingo’ (1998-2001).
He is however well known in Ghana for his title role in award-winning ‘Jacob’s Cross’ since 2007.
NEWS-ONE could not verify his relationship with the Ghanaian actress but Hlomla, a husband and father, touched down in Accra sometime last week.
His arrival has sparked a lot of gossips among players in Ghana’s movie industry about Yvonne Okoro, especially when nobody knows who she is dating at the moment.
Earlier on, there were allegations on the Internet that Hlomla Dandala not only cheated on his wife Candy, but had four children with four different women in three years. Yvonne’s recent comments in a section of Nigeria’s media that it was no big deal becoming a second wife, judging by the fact that her mum wasn’t her dad’s only wife, have increased the gossip.
Efforts to reach her proved futile but she indirectly addressed the rumuors, a few days ago, on twitter.
“Day 1 on my movie set, and its exciting with the SA (South Africa) actor of Jacobs Cross Hlomla. Dude is a professional,” she tweeted with a picture of her and the actor on what looked like a movie set.
Close aides to the Ghanaian actress also told NEWS-ONE that Hlomla and Yvonne were working together on a movie project in Ghana.
Though details of the said movie are still sketchy, the sources said it was being directed by award-winning director Shirley Frimpong Manso and produced by Yvonne Okoro.
