Love So Sweet! BellaNaija presents 13 Hottest Celeb Couples of 2013



“In a land plagued with envy, betrayal… and haters, we find two people who get through it all by standing tall, as one. Introducing the 13 ‘two people’ who stand tall among the rest in an industry where relationships have a bad reputation for longevity.” 

Pardon me, I was just practicing my movie voice-over introduction. Everybody has a celebrity couple that they’ve grown to love just by the mere way we perceive the couple. For some, it’s Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; others, it’s Karreuche Tran and Chris Brown; Oh! and need I mention Kanye West and Kim Kardashian?

For us, we’ve got a list.

Here are our 13 Hottest Celeb Couples of 2013!

2Face & Annie Idibia

She’s his African queen and he’s the man she’s always been waiting for. 2Face and Annie have got that forever love.

    • Adedayo

      June 3, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      I think thats exactly what happened…. they are/were desperate for content

    • Tiki

      June 4, 2013 at 12:39 pm

      what makes a celebrity, oh-ye-all-knowing?

      A well-known OAP is a celebrity, and Toke and Toolz are well-known, else you wouldn’t know enough to comment about!

    • lola

      June 4, 2013 at 1:58 pm

      Oh? they became celebs by constantly shoving themselves down our throats. They can all learn from Oreka Godis and shoudnt complain if they get bashed by the public. If you dont like the heat stay out of the kitchen.

  16. mama

    June 3, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    i pity monalisa, i hope lanre has changed ooh if not she is in for another hard time…no need jumping from one bad relationship to another

  17. Truth Diva

    June 3, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    ………..So many suffering and Smiling marriages you can ask the Ekehindes, lovely list but the yet to marry should not be found on the list + so many other hot celebrity couples that dnt make noice…oh sorry it is just 2013 couples…okies

  18. Truth Diva

    June 3, 2013 at 2:23 pm


  19. Toolz ni

    June 3, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Who made the list abeg?….I say no to tiwa,wiz kid,toke,Toolz and Lanre ,abeg…..

  20. Naveah

    June 3, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    BellaNaija Staff – make I ask una one kweshion o abeg indulge me small small, what was the criteria for this list? From what I see o with my own koro koro eyes which may be wrong o since said koro koro eyes na four I get – the wan wey God give me and the wan wey eye doctor give me – I see that SOME of these couples are on this list because they are ALWAYS featured on BN for one thing or the other. It isn’t that they are necessarily hot by virtue of both being hot commodities in their chosen field of work OR the story of how they got together or how they compliment each other on various levels.

    For instance, when was the last time Caroline Ekanem Danjuma was in a movie? And when did Danjuma become a celebrity? And if na by style una take judge, take a good serious look at the man’s dressing and honestly tell me that this guy is hot? The only think hot about this puffy faced dude is his money which Caroline immediately quit acting to spend.

    Again, I ask what was the criteria?

    I do believe it is just about those you guys like and whose life you follow often because it is about JUST ONE HALF the celeb being hot which is the case in every single one of these couples then we will see the likes of Desmond Eliot and wife, Stephanie Okereke and husband, Majid Michel and wife, Uche Jombo and her Boriqueno man, Ini Edo and hubby, Mercy and hubby etc. How come they didn’t make the hot list?

    The only couple this applies to might possible be:

    Tuface and Annie Idibia – their story is tacky and fascinating at the same time so they are hot.

    Omotola and her husband – hot talented wife, hot shot pilot plus an affair that started when she was only 15 which culminated in marriage and four kids.

    • zsa zsa

      June 4, 2013 at 12:50 am

      your comment had me in stitches!
      -Mr Danjuma is hot o! dey there nah…ask Caroline and she can testify to his hotne$$.
      -You no lie about 2face and Annie…it is naijas version of a fairytale ending.

  21. Naveah

    June 3, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    *because IF it is about JUST ONE HALF…*

  22. Adedayo

    June 3, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    I think its a very disrespectful to put Wizkid’s relationship in the same category as Some of these “Married and/Or Engaged”/More Solid couples who has gone thru blood and sweat to preserve what they have…

    I mean Bella Naija,come on,Wiz kid relationship on the same list as The Ekehindes,The Makuns,Danjumas…hahaa,.BellaNaija,You people take style rude small sha….

    Even Mrs Idibia,after all the kukere movement she has taken from Tuface,along with his “Determined to impregnate ,no sense of direction sperm” (That guy is extremely fertile mehn) you will now put her on d same list as wiz..chia,am upset on her behalf..#Rudeness

    Wizkid n his girl needs a new list for “Young n Cute” or “puppy love” or “Could this be LOVE???(Lol)” or “Only time will tell” ..along with people like Shaydee-who’s girl is very gorg ,by the way,,Olamide n his mystery girl, Davido n his numerous girls/groupies n co n co n co…
    .I think that would be more befitting list for Wizkid…Give these children chance to grow

    four couples needs to be removed from this list abeg…..

    June 4, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Chineke these comments have damn near killed me choi. But BN you guys need to stop overexposing the likes of Toolz and Toke. You will make us start getting irritated anytime we see them. Pls just go on a Toke/Toolz fast abeg!

  44. lol

    June 4, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    BN really surprised me negatively with this list. What is Wiz kid doing there. Paul Okoye should have made the list if we are choosing to go that route. What are Toolz and Toke Makinwa doing there. Oh common be serious! Akandes, Ekeindes, Idibias, Agwu’s and AY yes. Please if you choose to do a piece like this do your research properly. As for Lanre Nzeribe and confused Monalisa lets not go there, i would rather see Charlie boy and lady D!

  45. Nora

    June 4, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    June 16, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    It’s better that these celebrities don’t recycle and marry each other like hollywood(the land of nonsense). And, being a celebrity now is easy. The same people crying about the non celebs in s list are the same ones worshipping Kim k and all these reality stars. Now, u want to hate on ur own. Why do we do that to ourselves? Anyway, my favorite is olu Jacobs and joke silva , the skein des, Yomi and Liz then the Akandes. I like Tiwa but that man/manager of hers has too much drama surrounding him.

  52. Breanna

    June 18, 2013 at 6:01 pm
