12 of the shortest Nigerian celebrity marriage crashes ever seen

You know that vow the man of God asks the bride and groom on their wedding day - "yes, that very one that features the words 'till death do us part'? Well, it is not only death that can do people apart anymore. In fact, the rate of marriage crashes and divorces is alarming and a huge cause for concern. It's like people no longer respect the vows or regard the marriage union as a scared institution. They jump in and out like kids skipping rope for fun; very sad and unfortunate.

Some of the worst hit marriages are the celebrity related ones. It could be because their life is out there for the public and they couldn't withstand the pressure that comes with being well known. It could also be because one party cheated and the other couldn't trust them anymore. It could also be for many other reasons they feel is irreconcilable hence the need for the breakup. Over the past years, we have heard of some celebrity marriages shorter than the raining season; some even only lasted for a month. These breakups surprised people so much that it inspired me to gather together a list of those noteworthy unions that crashed like the Titanic. Without further ado, here they are:

Yvonne Jegede and Olakunle Abounce Fawole - 1 year
