Love Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is apparently related to a famous rapper and following weeks of theories we asked the villa queen herself if she's related to Central Cee - here’s what we know.
Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is said to be related to a famous rapper - but is it Central Cee?
The Turkish actress, who won Love Island 2022 with Davide Sanclimenti, already boasts a career as a pop star after a music video recently made the rounds online, with many fans not realising the 27-year-old was an all-round performer.
As Ekin-Su became a villa favourite, one fan asked the person who ran her TikTok account to let slip 'a fact about Ekin that no one knows', to which they responded: "She's related to a rapper. Any guesses?"

When Ekin-Su and Davide stopped by the Capital Breakfast studio with Roman Kemp, Sian Welby and Sonny Jay, we pulled them for a chat – and to ask Ekin once and for all if she's related to Central Cee.
Seemingly seriously confused about the rumour, Ekin responded: "If people are saying that why not, but no I'm not related!"
But which rapper is Ekin-Su related to?

Ekin-Su firmly shut down the rumour she's related to Central Cee, after weeks of rumours the Turkish actress had a famous family member.
After some wild guesses, fans became convinced that 24-year-old drill rapper Central Cee is a relative of Ekin-Su’s after the actress’ account seemingly confirmed the relation.
Putting fans out of their misery when guessing which rap star she was related to, the account simply commented with Central Cee’s real name, Oakley Neil H T Caesar-Su.
However, some fans were left unsure over the claims.
