Akinola, 27, is keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to which girls he'll be chasing, but he's got some good advice from his friend and "Love Island" alum Dami Hope from the 2022 series. "He said, 'Do your thing, be yourself and everyone else will get to know you, and get to see why we're friends.' He was saying, 'You tell the boys on a night out, "This is how to talk to a girl", now go and show them how it's done.' I was like, I can do that!" the software engineer from Dublin says.
Akinola saw sparks fly with Tanya, and the two recoupled post Casa Amor. After a very fiery few days, with Tanya caught in her feelings with Shaq, he was left single and dumped from the villa.
