Genevieve Nnaji | Dakore Akande

Our female Nigerian celebrities are so beautiful.

Whether they’re in a music video, chatting with our favourite stars on talk shows, or playing a character in a movie, we can’t help but crush on all of them.

So, in honour of #WomanCrushWednesday, we have selected 10 beauty photos of 10 gorgeous TV stars that makes crushing on them all too easy.

Check them out!

Dolapo Oni
She looks so lovely here! Her makeup look was created by celebrity makeup artist Joyce Jacob of Joyce Jacob Beauty, and we are loving the satin finish. With a nude and sultry face, her makeup was completed with a red lip, dulled down with brown lip liner.

So beautiful!

Genevieve Nnaji
This photo is a little dated, but we couldn’t help ourselves, it’s Genevieve!

With makeup by Jane of Flawless Faces, we love this fun and cutesy photos of the A-list actress. Jane created a simple look on Genny with a dark waterline, a lightly contoured face and matte red lips.

We are also feeling her mane which features romantic curls that have been pinned up.

Seyi Shay
Right Now” singer, Seyi Shay, attended the 2Face “FORTY”fied event rocking this bold look. We are seriously feeling her electric blue lip created by Oluchi Onuigbo, which finished her simple makeup look.

Her hair stood out in grey, and complemented her all-white outfit and makeup.

Omoni Oboli
Naturalistas love their weaves too!

We usually see actress Omoni Oboli rocking her natural hair in a cute way, but this time, with makeup by Joyce Jacob Beauty, she’s rocking something different – a fab weave with tight waves.

Her makeup is uber-pretty with sultry eyes, shimmery tear ducts and a bold fuchsia pink lip finished with a gloss.

Talk about Aso-ebi fab!

Singer, Mocheddah rocked this pretty makeup look created by Doranne Beauty for her sister’s wedding. With sultry eyes and a pretty pink lip, we love her finished look.

Mbong Amata
Can we just say Mbong Amata’s natural hair looks so cute here!

Her makeup look was created by Faceville Makeovers, and we are loving it. Mbong’s makeup featured dark sultry eyes, flirty false lashes, and perfectly nude skin and lips. So beautiful and natural looking.

Dakore Akanda
We’re starting to think Nigerian celebs really love their smokey eyes.

Dakore Akande looks amazing in this photo with makeup created by Joyce Jacob Beauty. We see the actress in a bold red lip and deep sultry eyes, completed with bombshell curls in her hair.

Kate Henshaw
This is such a picture perfect photo! A-list actress Kate Henshaw had her makeup done by Oluchi Onuigbo, and it played off Kate’s pretty features – her lovely eyes and signature smile.

Her hair had pretty defined curls which framed her face beautifully.

Rita Dominic
What would this list be without the lovely Rita Dominic?

Looking pretty in pink, her makeup was created by Oluchi Onuigbo, and featured a light pink lip, sultry eyes and a perfectly highlighted face.

Osas Ighodaro
TV personality and actress Osas Ighodaro is one beauty we are always on the lookout for.

Her makeup here has been created by Jane of Flawless Faces, and features a deep purple matte lip and eyes lined with black liner. Her look is very subtle yet bold, and we love her straight long bob.

    Favourite – Mbong. Lovely eyebrows too.

    Osas is more beautiful than the make up suggests.

    September 23, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    I dont like Mo cheddah’s makeup… OSas was looking old here. Others are good.

  12. Carphy

    September 23, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    Mbong Amata is one beautiful lady, she is even prettier without make up. Osas make up made her look 10 years older and she looked cake up. God bless Rita, my look alike????

  13. ATL's finest

    September 23, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    Rita, Dakore, & Kate did it for me! What’s up with Osas’s eyes n face? I know she’s pregos but she looks funny lately. @ Omoli there’s sth about that lady I can’t place my finger on it.

    They all look nice,bt wasup wit d every1 on closure.hmmmm

    • Wiglover

      September 23, 2015 at 8:17 pm

      My dear majority of dos women are wearing wigs hence the closure, atlst it looks like Kate,OSas, Jenny and Rita are wearing wigs. I cld be wrong dou. Since I started wearing wigs I haven’t looked back. D only problem is when boo gets intimate. Praying doesn’t fall off……….LOL

    • Anon

      September 24, 2015 at 10:36 am

      No, they are not. Where have you been? You can now have a weave with a closure. They sew the closure on in front instead of leaving the hair out or instead of an invisible parting.

  28. Tee

    September 23, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    I cannot see any work done. This are regular makeup I see in my office without the airbrush. All I see is ‘Yeye instagrram’ wey dey confuse all of una. Hmmmm, Mbong Amata and Dakore are the only ones that can come out right from the bathroom. If you doubt me, ask their make up artist.

    Omoni looks a lot better with her natural hair as does Kate.

  30. Fade to Black

    September 24, 2015 at 1:27 am

    Genny and Rita ….Genny is effortlessly gorgeous ..just any day and Rita made me smile….beautiful lady!

  33. Mostest

    September 24, 2015 at 3:33 am

    Whenever I see pics of Genevieve, I just wonder why she is not doing anything in the film industry. No production, no roles, she’s just comfortable with endorsements. She has to be one of the most uninspiring celebrities

    • Amina

      September 24, 2015 at 12:01 pm


      Genevieve is busy with her other role as a mistress. That takes a whole lot of work too.

  34. Dee one

    September 24, 2015 at 3:44 am

    Mbong was my best, next is rita just because I’m not a fan of heavy makeup and mbong is pretty even without makeup anyway. The worst however is osas; she’s prettier than that without makeup.

  35. chuks

    September 24, 2015 at 5:35 am

    Osas looks funny here. I go for JJB

  36. Tosin

    September 24, 2015 at 7:15 am
