7 Successful Celebrity Marriages in Nigeria

Getting married to someone is a huge deal as it indicates that one person will be your lifelong companion, so you should be prepared when you agree to marry anybody.

Mide Martins and Afeez Abiodun

Mide Martins, daughter of late Nollywood actress Funmi Martins, has been married to actor Afeez Owo for almost 14 years, and they have two daughters together. Taking a good look at their marriage, never think spending 14 years with the same person is an easy task, it isn't. But they have managed to pull it off.

Fela and Tara Durotoye

Every great guy is accompanied by a brilliant and accomplished lady. Fela Durotoye is a best-selling author and one of Africa's most successful motivational speakers. Fela's wife is an attorney, a revolutionary beautician, and the owner of her own beauty line. Together, they appear to be a perfect match, and they have possibly one of the most beautiful stories to tell.

In addition to being a beauty entrepreneur, she is also a mother of three who is always using social media to provide relationship and marital advice. Being someone from shattered homes, this couple is determined to make each other happy and make it work.

Tunde and Wunmi Obe

After more than a decade of marriage, Tunde Obe and Wunmi Obe are still going strong today. The two lovebirds met in the 1990s and began their music careers as undergraduates.

The duo was also featured in a Charley Boy Show back then. The seasoned musician and father of three explained that he found a woman who understands his aspirations and assists him in making sound plans for the future.

Peju Ogunmola and Sunday Omobolanle

Sunday Omobolanle, a well-known humorous actor, dramatist, filmmaker, and director, and his spouse, actress Peju Ogunmola, have been married for almost three decades and counting. However, because actress Peju Ogunmola is the only familiar figure amongst them, few people are aware that Aluwe was a polygamist. 

Richard and Mofe Damijo

Mofe Damijo was betrothed to deceased Nigerian reporter May Ellen Ezekiel. Following his death, Mofe-Damijo tied the knot with a former AIT reporter Jumobi Adegbesan. They've been through a lot together, and there have been rumours of infidelity on both ends. Despite this, the love and security of their marriage appear to be growing in strength day by day. They have 5 kids in all, 4 from her marriage and one from Richard's former spouse.

Iretiola and Patrick Doyle

Iretiola and Patrick must have considered themselves fortunate to have met. They've been married for nearly two decades and their love is still blooming. They have been able to enjoy a close relationship without any interference from outsiders because their lives revolve around each other. Despite the glitter and popularity, the pair prefers to be grounded, loyal to one another, and concerned with the development of their 6 kids.

Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva

Olu Jacobs as we all know is among the actors we have in Nollywood. Together with his gorgeous wife Joke Silva, they have been labelled as Nigeria's most charming pair. When they first met on set, Joke Silva had no intention of marrying Olu Jacobs, but she was seduced by his charisma and married him. She is now the mother of their 2 kids. Olu and Joke, like any other couple, particularly those in the same sector, have been able to keep any potential problems in their relationship at bay.

Infidelity rumours haven't been levelled at them yet, and they serve as role models for other Nigerian celebrities and even quasi couples in Nigeria. They have also thrived in their careers as entertainers, winning multiple honours in the process.
