Yewande Biala Relationship Status
The 25-year-old black beauty is currently single but she has been in a few relationships before. Yewande appeared on the British dating series, Love Island in 2019. However, she couldn't find love and was eliminated on the 22nd day.
While on the show, Yewande had a brief romance with fellow contestants, Michael Griffiths and Danny Williams. However, Michael later coupled up with Amber Gill and Danny dumped her for Arabella Chi. Further, the show was won by Amber and Greg O'Shea.
The Irish scientist also briefly dated George Rains, but their romance quickly ended as Yewande found he had a girlfriend. It seems her right partner is still out there as Biala has been cheated on multiple times in the past.
Yewande's Struggle on Love Island
Fans were devastated to see Yewande left alone on the show. She was a strong contender but what was the reason behind her elimination? In an interview with MainOnline, Biala revealed that finding love in the villa proved difficult due to her skin color.

Yewande said any member who was either of mixed race or nationality found it hard to couple with a fellow male contestant. She further said: "How is it possible we all went on a show to find love and we've come out more single? How sad is that? I am still single. Isn't it insane?"
Shockingly, a person of such intelligence was mocked online after the news of her selection on the show was announced. Many people posted racially disturbing comments saying a person with black skin color couldn't be Irish.
