Though she captioned the picture quoting that she is not afraid to catch feelings, it is hard to state is she is dating the man, or the image was just for a shoot.
AJ thinks that the Nigerian community is quite conservative, but as her mom wants her to be a part of Nigerian family, she might come up with the news of tying a knot with the Nigerian partner soon!
