The beautiful Victoria Lebene is one of Ghana's most famous actresses. Although she has made a name for herself through her career, Victoria is probably remembered more for having dated Kofi Adjorlolo. That was the onset of controversies with people claiming that she was in a relationship with a guy twice her age just for his money. She disputed those claims many times, but it appeared that she was fighting a losing war and eventually broke up with Kofi.
When Victoria Lebene Mekpah left Kofi Adjorlolo, many men celebrated because the list of single ladies had increased by one. Little did they know that Victoria was not going to be single for a very long time. It took her just about four months to get into another relationship. Even though she had always been hesitant going into marriage when she was with Kofi, her new relationship did not take long before wedding bells sounded. That said, Victoria Lebene Mekpah's biography has more than her dating history.

People became interested in the dating life of Victoria Lebene when rumours emerged that she was seeing veteran actor and producer Kofi Adjorlolo. She received backlash and criticism from people who could not understand why she went for a guy old enough to be her father.
Others claimed that she was in a relationship for money. She denied those claims indicating that Mr. Adjorlolo never bought her a house or car, so she was not in the relationship for money. However, she ended up the relationship due to pressure from her family and her fans. This is what Mrs. Victoria had this to say about the relationship:
I want to make it up to my father, and the reason is that he hasn't agreed with the wedding and the whole marriage thing going on between Kofi Adjorlolo and me. It is something that has always been at the back of my mind that my father is not in support of it. So I have decided to make my father proud and let him know that I have listened to him, and I don't want the marriage to come between my father and me because he is one of the reasons I am who I am today.
