Rotimi, who rocketed to fame via the cable blockbuster “Power” opposite 50 Cent and Omari Hardwick, posted the same photo for his 1.6 million IG followers with the simple caption, “HER.”

Mdee — who is wildly famous in her homeland — released her Money Mondays album last year and is an “East Africa’s Got Talent” judge, so revealing that she is going steady with the “Nigerian Buttascotch,” as Rotimi is affectionately called, is a big deal in Africa.

Mdee said she knew almost immediately that Rotimi was the one for her. “It took me two days … I said, ‘this is my husband,’” she disclosed in a radio interview.

“Yes, I am in love with him. I love him,” she added.

Further confirming their relationship, Mdee posted another photo of herself with this note: “Mrs. Buttascotch, 🍯 How u Dey.”

The Shade Room reported that Rotimi and Mdee were house hunting in metro Atlanta after last being seen together in South Florida.
