Celebrity marriages are infamous for their brevity, but not for these couples! From 33 year old marriages to newly weds, these Nigerian celebrity couples not only show us how fun marriage can be, they absolutely slay while doing it!
1. Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva
This veteran Nollywood couple got married in 1985 and are still carrying on strong! This is a major relationship goal for us because the entertainment industry is a hard community to stay married in but Olu and Joke have shown us that it is possible to be great Nollywood actors and still have a blissful marriage.
2. Fela and Tara Durotoye
Fela Durotoye is a business strategist and a corporate activator and Tara is the founder of cosmetic and beauty company, House of Tara. This power couple have all the qualities you would want in a marriage.They got married in 2001 and are parents to three amazing boys. The mutual love and respect these two have for each other is evident when you see the way they are with each other. They keep their relationship and family affairs on a low while leaving us in awe of their individual achievements.
3. 2face and Annie Idibia
TuFace and Annie met in 1999, started dating in 2002 and got married in 2013. The journey to nuptial bliss was a pretty long one for both of them. During that time, TuFace became one of Nigeria’s biggest artists and had five children from two different women. I mean, that is enough to break any relationship but it didn’t stop these two love birds from living their dream of being together. We give credit to Annie Idibia for being a great partner and a wonderful mother to her step children.
4. Gbenro and Osas Ajibade
One of Nigeria’s hottest actors, Gbenro Ajibade got married to one of Nigeria’s hottest actresses and beauty queens, Osas Ighodaro. The duo met and fell in love while on the set of Tinsel. Their relationship blossomed from friendship to love and although there were rumors early in their marriage that Gbenro was only with her for a green card, the couple have proved that their love is for real.
5. Banky and Adesua Wellington
We still have not recovered from #BAAD2017 and we don’t think we will any time soon. Banky and Adesua, the stars of the hit movie, The Wedding Party, surprised the world with their love story that seemed to come out of the blues. From a scripted wedding party to a real wedding party, we have kept up with the Wellington’s all the way! Their marriage is only a few months old but we look forward to watching Banky and Adesua grow old together. We’re super excited to be on this journey with them!
