Nse Ikpe-Etim & Clifford Sule at their Civil Ceremony

On Valentine’s Day – 14th February 2013, Nollywood superstar Nse Ikpe-Etim married her first love, Clifford Sule.

The couple completed the Civil Ceremony (Registry) wedding, therefore they are officially married. The next day, close friends including Rita Dominic, Waje, Thelma Ojiji, Uche Jombo, Dakore Akande and Michelle Dede celebrated with the couple at the swanky Sky Lounge penthouse restaurant & bar at Eko Hotel in Lagos.

We all know Nse is a talented actress, writer and cook; so we just had to find out more about her beau. We googled Mr Sule and discovered that he’s a senior lecturer at a UK University. Beautiful and talented meets Handsome and smart!

Congrats Nse & Cliff!

We hear their traditional and white wedding will take place later on this year.

Such a lovely couple.

    Whoooooop!!!! I love her hair!!! I’ve recently done the big chop on the way back to natural hair and Nse’s lovely lovely hair just tells me (even though I already knew) I’m doing the right thing!!! Plus she knows how to work her hair into every outfit! Beautiful woman!

    Her beau looks really good too, in a sexy, rough, Jamie Foxx kind of way… Chocolate and cream (imagining their cuuuuuutte kids in my mind already)

    She looks really happy, and I think that you can either be happy for/with her, or be quiet. Really.

    February 18, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Yay! Congrats Nse. I love her acting eh! I got to know her when I saw a preview of the movie produced by her very good friend(can’t remember her name) which had Desmond Elliot and I think Monalisa. She spoke Pidgin and the way she did it got my attention; she was so funny doing it.

    I love her hair, natural bride for once! See her glowing and grinning. Kai! Lofe good oh…
    @Amy, I concur with you; they look alike.
    @Will, she said that because of the heartbreaks she had gone through. Like we all know, nothing is constant except change.

    I had a mate in school who didn’t want to marry. She made it clear to her mom that marriage was out of her agenda and would focus on her career.

    I later found out she was in a relationship with a guy working in the University we attended. When she was asked why she agreed to date him, she said she was just dating him for dating sake and wasn’t really into it.

    Before we all knew it, they were like 5 & 6. His pictures all over her laptop. They were engaged before we graduated and got married after NYSC. She’s happily married with children now.

    So you see, man proposes, GOD disposes!
