In 2016, picture of Cynthia Morgan kissing Banky W surfaced online, with speculations that the two musicians were an item, but it was later discovered to be untrue.
Tax and rent debt scandals reportedly hit Madrina in 2018 while she was on music hiatus. She was charged to the Ikeja High Court for failure to pay her rent at her Omole apartment. It was learnt that on the same day the artiste was served court papers for defaulting on payment of rent, she was also served with court papers for evading tax.
A source close to the owner of the apartment where Cynthia Morgan was charged to court told Saturday Beats she owed N1.3m. When a call was placed across to Cynthia Morgan’s phone, her representative who identified himself simply as Maze denied the fact that she owed money.
He said, “I do not know of anything like that and I would say that it is a lie. I do not know about any court papers, so I would say that it is a lie. To the best of my knowledge, I am not aware that she owes her landlord any money. I believe that if they claim she smokes, entertains strange guests and leaves the gate open at odd hours, they should have proof. In my book, none of this statement is factual. I don’t know about these details and I would say that it is a lie.”
Little is known about Cynthia Morgan’s personal life. She has been linked to dating Dammy Krane and Burna Boy, but she later debunked the rumours. Cynthia confessed that she has a crush on Davido. She considers him to be a hardworking and persistent person. Madrina isn’t married.
