Iyanya and Yvonne Nelson reconcile

Sources close to the couple told me that they are somehow back together and seriously working on their relationship. Yvonne and Iyanya had a heart to heart talk while Iyanya was in Ghana over the holidays. The Ghanaian actress was later seen dropping Iyanya off at the airport in her car.
