Ivory Coast Social Media has gone in overdrive and viral, over the sudden split this week of the Ivorian "barbie" Emmanuel Keita and her Vlogger beau Peter 007.
Less than a year ago, on the Muslim Tabaski festival (Eid al-Adha/festival of sacrifice), Peter 007, a former Ivory Coast law enforcement officer turned Video logger was on his knee with an engagement ring to woe the Queen of Ekland, Emmanuel Keita.
Millions of fans applauded the engagement, but many did not believe it would last. Nearly four months later, the two lovebirds have ended their fairytale union to the tune of dirty laundry and disparaging comments about one another.
In Ekland, the make-believe empire she built on Social Media, Emmanuelle's fans are adamant: Peter is just a loser who could not cope with the fame of the beauty. In Peter's camp, fans insist that their champion was seduced by a "con-woman" who only played games to boost her notoriety.
As for the neutrals, the split is just another Ivorian media "buzz" to sell the remaining tickets of the much-publicized conference of December 4th 2021, by none other than EK. No one wants to believe both sides. After the engagement party at Paris Fouquet's restaurant, Emmanuelle Keita swore by video: "I am a mother of four, including a teenage daughter. My love life cannot be a "buzz". I have been raised like a Queen. In our household, we don't play with this kind of thing".
