Ex-beauty queen, Anna Banner has revealed that she is still in love with Nigerian singer, Favour.
Favour and Anna Banner
Flavour’s babymama, Anna Banner has confessed in a new interview with Punch that she is still in love with the singer even after she called off the relationship. Banner was in a fierce battle with ex-beauty queen, Sandra Okagbue for the singer’s heart before she lost out.
The 2013 winner of Miss World Nigeria pageant also addressed claims that she got pregnant with the singer’s child for fame.
“I couldn’t have purposely got pregnant because I wanted to hook a star. I was already a star too. I wasn’t looking for fame; I was even running away from fame. But I got pregnant for somebody I really loved. It wasn’t planned. It was my mistake but I wouldn’t call my child a mistake. I was careless. But I thank God it happened with a man who I loved and who didn’t turn his back on me,” she says.
While confessing that Flavour is her first love, she said: “When you love someone, it is hard to fall out. You cannot fall in love today and fall out of love tomorrow. Love is strong. Before you tell somebody you love him, you have to be sure. Flavour was the first man I fell in love with. I still love him as the beautiful soul he has and as the father of my child. I don’t know what the future holds but we are just taking things one step at a time.”
She also sets the records straight about her pregnancy:
“Some people have got it twisted. It wasn’t because of the video that I had a child for him. We didn’t start dating because of the video either. It just happened and it happened,” she says.
“I was demoralised. I was finished! I was frustrated! My parents were disgusted at my sight. It was my cross, so I had to carry it. I decided I was going to keep the baby even if I wasn’t married. It turned out to be the best decision I have made.”
Asked if she is jealous of Flavour’s relationship with Sandra Okagbue, she replies, “why should I be jealous? We are all humans but what will be will be. If you get jealous today, where will it lead you to? All I want is for my child to be happy.”
