In July 2019, a video of the model and Nigerian music star, Runtown all loved up found its way to the internet. It became obvious that these two were up to something. It didn't take long before it became clear that the two were dating.
A few weeks later, Runtown shared a video of Akech showing off a ring on his Instagram page. There were speculations that the two had gotten engaged. The music star's team later cleared the air saying it was a promise ring.
