Kenya Moore’s Mysterious “African Prince” Revealed as Nigerian Singer D’Banj?

While Kenya Moore has referenced her embarrassing on-screen split from Walter Jackson as the reason she hasn’t introduced her “African Prince” yet on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, we’ve always assumed it was because she was storing him up for a bombshell reveal. And if the recent tea being spilled on the gossip sites proves to be right, we’re in for a doozy.

According to’s Bravo insider, Kenya is planning to unveil her mysterious boyfriend at the upcoming RHoA reunion. And the lucky guy who gets to date the former Miss USA? That would be award-winning Nigerian singer D’banj!

The site says that the the African chart-topper — who has won such awards as Best International Act: Africa at the 2011 BET Awards and was previously signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label — will appear alongside Kenya at the reunion, when the rest of the Housewives are joined by their respective men (including Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida!).

Meanwhile, MTO’s insiders also say that Kenya actually hired D’banj to appear as her boyfriend on the reality show, and they aren’t actually in relationship. And while it doesn’t surprise us that Kenya would be plagued with such rumors after what she experienced with Walter in her first season, we’re not sure we’d believe she’d risk that kind of information getting out. We’d like to think she’s just found herself a successful man that she’s keeping under wraps.

So you tell us: Do you think this is the guy that Kenya has been hiding from us? And do you think she would hire a guy to appear as her boyfriend? Tell us in the comments below.
