BellaNaija presents 10 Nigerian Celeb Couples that Make Marriage Look Sexy



Gbenro & Osas AjibadeToday BellaNaija is sharing picks for ten of the hottest celebrity couples in Nigeria and they’ve made our list for many special reasons. We have a lot of fine celeb couples in Nigeria, some married longer than others, some with beautiful children already, expecting their first child, and about to have their white wedding.

This list includes two silver screen couples brought together by Tinsel, Osas Ighodaro-Ajibade & her husband Gbenro Ajibade (see their wedding here & here) and also Damilola & Chris Attoh (see their wedding here). We also have our favourite PDA couple, Ik & Sonia Ogbonna.

While we have evergreen couples who have been in the marriage game for years now like gorgeous actress Dakore Egbuson-Akande & her husband Olu Akande (see their wedding here), AY & Mabel Makun (see their wedding here), Naeto C & Nicole Chikwe (see their wedding here), 2Baba and Annie Idibia (see their wedding here and here); we also have Ubi Franklin & his wife Lilian Esoro-Fraklin expecting their first child! (see their wedding here and here) and Peter Okoye & Lola Omotayo-Okoye have two adorable children together (see their wedding here). And of course the voluptuous Toolz and her pilot hubby Tunde Demuren – see their traditional introduction here and traditional wedding here.

These couples make the effort to look great together on the red carpet, complimenting each other and exuding intense chemistry that gives us all #couplegoals. We know marriage is more than the glitz and glam but they make it look easy. And even though some of these couples have had children, they still manage to look hotter than ever.

These are our fave celebs that make marriage look sexy!

    Nice one but where is Timi Dakolo?

    • Jade

      May 16, 2016 at 2:31 pm

      Naijas are too critical, this is a light hearted article not to be taken too serious. It says sexy not the longest marriage or oldest couples. Beautiful, pretty, sexy mean different things sometimes. The way Americans use their words is different from Africans interpretation. For Americans sexy means sex appeal it’s based on appearance. For example, Angelina and brad are considered sexiest couple by Americans which is only based on looks and how it “seems” like they have active, kinky sex life. Will and jada are one of the sexiest couples, if not the sexiest, they look like they can’t get enough of each other, their PDA on red carpets says it all. But the Obamas won’t make that list because what they put out, how they carry themselves is on a different level and it’s beyond just being sexy. But no naijas will see it as, I’m older than you, I’ve been married longer therefore I’m sexier than you. This is a different list, honey.

      Therefore, the list makes sense. I have to picture the couples having sex and how frequent they probably have sex. Sorry, there should be no reason the Jacobs be on that list. It’s like imagining my parent having sex and talking dirty. Nah, I’m good.

      Osas and gbenro are both attractive, dress sexy, have nice bodies and that kiss at their wedding was smooth/passionate. Annie(the type that will strip for her man) and 2face(his lips looks like he eats p*ssy well) and they both have some kinky, adventurous sex life. What possible way will make Annie stay after babymamas and other kids. Damilola and chris judging from their hot magazine cover, I’m like yeah, they don’t play, it goes down in the bedroom and they are both attractive too. His body alone is a turn on. She has a nice butt.
      Dakore and hubby look like they have that grown and sexy marriage, put the kids to bed first and knock each other out to bed. And after children, Dakore still has a nice shape.

      Timi dakolo and Busola, his voice alone is sexy. And she’s a hot mama.

      Who read this? All this sermon for what na? God bless your ministry lol.

    • Naija noni

      May 16, 2016 at 5:51 pm

      NO MATTER WHAT THE CRITERIA FOR THIS LIST IS OMOTOLA AND CAPT EKEINDE SHOULD HAVE TOPPED IT. WE ALL KNOW THIS . Why do I have a feeling it was done on purpose? To drive comments cause it makes no other sense otherwise!!!

      You read my epistle right? Ok, so I can write whatever I want. I’m not overly critical. I see, you don’t know what that word means. It’s a response to other comments. I’m as calm as the sea. I don’t drink tequila. Let’s have some glass of wine. Cheers.

    • seriously

      May 17, 2016 at 9:14 pm

      This is funny. Your description of the couples, I had to go back and picture what you commented. [email protected] lips looks he eats – well. Bella naija is getting R rated in a second but I love it.

    toolz?? omotola and hubby should be topping the list

  3. Cutie

    May 16, 2016 at 10:00 am

    Abeg add omotola,before she commit suicide biko. .

    • Prince

      May 16, 2016 at 11:46 am

      What would make her commit suicide, your brain don sawa. Meanwhile, Bellanaija or whoever put this together need serious brain reset. Where’s Stephanie Linus and her hubby. Where’s Joke Silva & Mr. Jacobs. What on earth is tools and the Esoros doing here, who dem be sef, na when them marry.

    • Abk

      May 16, 2016 at 1:35 pm

      Why will Omotola commit suicide because of this pathetic list?
      It’s a joke that people like IK and Sonia, and Ubi and Lilian are here, and the likes of Olu Jacobs & Joke Silva, Isaac & Nneka Moses, Zack & Nneka (?) Orji and OmoT & Captain aren’t here.

    • ATL's finest

      May 16, 2016 at 4:02 pm

      @ Cutie even a dead person can tell this list is WACK from the jump. Omotola can’t commit suicide cuz tbh, she’s been holding that marriage down forever & been a celebrity, we all know how that is. Ola Jacobs isn’t on here, but Ubi & Lilian? Mtchew give me a break. Cutie hun U can either get a brain replacement of which it ain’t possible or U can receive some sense ✌.

    Lola Okoye and that red dress equals class!!


      May 16, 2016 at 11:23 am

      The Ogbonnas and those their toes tho’….
      But from the bottom of my heart, i wish u and the Okoyes lasting married life. Interracial /Cross-cultural marriages are the hardest ones to maintain. Too many misunderstandings as a result of too many differences, It gets worse when your spouse ‘s family don’t accept u and strain u till u finally back out only to say ” aha, we always said it naah, so and so has always been a bad choice”
      All the best to the Ogbonnas and the Okoyes.
      In my dreams, i see Lola and Sonia being friends

      @RIFFRAFF What are you on about with your ‘riff raff’ comment ? ( no pun intended ) . So in this age , you still got issues with inter-racial marriage ? really ? It’s obvious you don’t know what love is . Please take several seats .

  5. Patience Jonathan

    May 16, 2016 at 10:06 am

    Thanks BN for sharing. Lets celebrate good things in a while eehhnnn…..I dont like hearing bad gist.

    Incomplete List.

    May 16, 2016 at 10:16 am

    Lmaooo! I hate to bring this up but you see this life ehn? A few weeks ago and Tiwa would have been top of this ambiguous fickleass list?
    BN team! I just love you guys….your level of shamelessness is increasing by the day…but abeg carry go, who shame don epp in blogging??
    I’m not even sure if this is abosi (shade)….but it is something alright ??

      BN does anything to get page views up these days.

  8. Niola

    May 16, 2016 at 10:17 am

    BN Please these are honest questions. No Hating. What do you call a celeb? Is it transmitted by sex? Is it by how many posts you have of them? i.e If ones’ spouse is a celeb, will that make the other a celeb? I am getting confused, I see a pilot, a run away Cambodian or Columbian, a very rich son etc

  9. Ify

    May 16, 2016 at 10:23 am

    If this article had been written one month ago, Tiwa and Tbillz would have been your number one couple (complete with links to see their wedding “here” and “here”. my point is, these are all nice people, I’m sure, but their marriages are the same with any other, including the joys and sorrows. when you put them up on such a high pedestal, the fall is always more injurious.

  10. Lucinda

    May 16, 2016 at 10:28 am

    Osas and Gbenro, Ik and Sonia, Damilola & Chris, Peter and Lola. 2 face and Annie- maybe. Basket mouth and wifey should replace AY and Mabel. All others should be on another list, not sexiest list abeg. Plx and plx nobody should mention Omotola. If vintage nollywood had a list, Joke and Olu Jacobs should have been there.

    • Squad

      May 16, 2016 at 5:51 pm

      Just accept the fact that omotola shld be toppin that list. Which of omotolas colleague at her status has held a marriage down like hers? At her age?! At the age she got married. At that age when her mates where still catching fun but was mature enuf to hold a home and became one of nollywoodtop!! Abeg lets be sayin the truth and push aside sentiments

    Dami and Chris Attoh ,such a cute couple. my man and woman crush!

    Hmmm. Me I don’t Base my idea of marriage based on social media. They all look beautiful like they have great marriages but no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

  13. Tosin

    May 16, 2016 at 10:55 am

    ehn just kidding 🙂

    very fine people o, and like someone said, the feature is needed after the anti-marriage shock of the past few weeks got people re-examining, questioning, crying…all sortsa feelings across the land, males and females deeply upset, so bad that even church had to step in and focus on the matter for a while to meet people at their point of need.
    (Hmm, how many of you believe in Santa Claus? Heard of the tooth fairy? Kwantinu.)

    mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the SEXIEST of them all? I’m biased, but let’s hear from you…don’t diss anybody o, just choose the sexy

  14. Eve82

    May 16, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Articles like this puts unnecessary pressure in these celebrity marriages. We have heard/seen enough. BN pls desist from putting up articles like this cuz they are so tongue-in-cheek!

  15. Valentina

    May 16, 2016 at 10:58 am

    Annie, Dakore and Osas that’s all I can see.

    May 16, 2016 at 11:05 am

    Pls abeg epp us ask dakore to do an article on the products she uses for her skin. That lady glows. Trust me BN, that article will have loads of hits

  18. Pelumi @Cutie ignorance is. not a virtue

    May 16, 2016 at 11:10 am

    Omotola is a successful mother of four,nothing to commit suicide about,the most successful and most bank able celebrity,You and your negative life won’t end well unless you change your hateful mind,#Happy Goat

  19. Dakore on point.

    May 16, 2016 at 11:23 am

    Dakore’s product is called enough pepper and sabi husband,if you have them you will surely glow,they give peace of mind and Joy,with both of them life will be worth living each and everyday.

    Omotola is a veteran in marriage,twenty years in marriage and still going is no joke,she can only be mentioned along Olu Jacob and joke silva,that joker that want to commit suicide please take note#Ode.

    May 16, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    the Akande – claps hands 🙂

  23. Omotola is a class apart.

    May 16, 2016 at 12:17 pm

    Twenty years of marriage with four children,Omotola can’t be compared with some of this newly weds.A mother of four with great life cannot think of committing suicide,negative trolls specialist grow up or you will perish.

    Whoever put this list together is very shallow minded and really not intelligent.

    @ December Wind.
    The hypocrisy of it all….
    Kindly provide those seats , settle my issues for me, then show me what love is all about..

    Are u not the ones who go beserk here , whenever “useless” naija guys u don’t even want (who are all dogs by the way,) go foreign???
    Your comments scream “HE’S THERE FOR THE PAPERS!!! HE HAS ANOTHER WIFE BACK HOME, IF HE WERE A BEGGAR WOULD SHE HAVE LOOKED AT HIM??? as if u yourselves look at beggars.
    Is that not how you all bashed Mikel Obi’s russian girlfriend??? Just cos she’s white???ah c’mon!!

    When it was Tosyn Bucknor, you all hi-fived her as if her marrying a white guy was some form of pay-back to these “demons” u put up with on a daily basis

    Sweetie, i come across interracial couples all the time, i even got some in my family, They say the same thing: Coping with someone who is RADICALLY DIFFERENT FROM YOU IN EVERY ASPECT is tough and some families unfortunately don’t make things easy at all!!!
    That’s why i’m wishing these ladies especially all the best…
    You get my drift now???

      @riffraff , what you just wrote is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read . At no point in your poorly written incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought . Everyone on this page is now dumber for having read your comment. May God have mercy on your soul

    LOL, i knew there was going to be a huge backlash about this post.

    Calm down people. This list is titled “Couples that make marriage look sexy”, and not “Best Married Celebs in Nigeria” or “Our Favorite Married Couples”. A sexy looking marriage does not guarantee anything. Stop reading too much into post people. Sheeeshh

    There is some ageism here. So no older couples…
