Sometimes it's crazy to think about how it wasn't too long ago inter-racial marriages were not only frowned upon, but criminalized. It was dangerous, forbidden, to be hidden.

Today, that door has been broken, burned, and shattered. People from all different races, nationalities, and ethnicities are getting together. While some people still choose to raise their noses or frown upon this intermingling of people, for the most part, the world today is cool with it.

Nigerian celebrities have their pick of Nigerian men who are willing and ready to give them a liver if they asked for one. A lot of men idolize their celebrities. They fantasize about them, they pray for them, you'd think they're dating them.

But for the 12 women on this list, despite all of the attention from the men here in Nigeria, the men who caught their eyes and hearts just happened to be people who were not Nigerian.
