In this post today, we’ll be revisiting one of our old lists for a little catch up session.
In 2009, we gave you a list of our Hottest Bachelors in Entertainment and that was 7 years ago, a lot has changed over the years. We’ve had countless celebrity weddings, hookups and breakups, so where are these hot bachelors now?
From OG members like Don Jazzy and Jim Iyke who have remained on the list to newly married men like Ebuka and those who have been in the marriage game for sometime now like Cobhams and Naeto C who just celebrated 4 years in marriage, here’s our catch up list of 2009’s Hottest Bachelors in ENtertainment.
We’ll do it in the EXACT order of the 2009 list, so let’s get started.

Aside from relationships, MI has become the CEO of Chocolate City Music. Watch his most recent interview here on Rubbin’ Minds with another guy on this list Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. We’re also very excited to here his new single with 2Baba, Babylon.
Since our last Hottest Bachelors in Entertainment list, Timaya has done so much in the music industry, sold our shows around the world and hit songs like I Concur, Jam it, and Excuse me.

Don Jazzy, the Mavin boss and extraordinarily talented producer who’s constantly dishing out some of the biggest hit songs Naija has ever heard, like Eminado by Tiwa Savage, Surulere by Dr Sid , Collabo with P-Square, I Concur with Timaya and so many others with members of the Mavin crew and those of Mo’hits past. He’s still on our hot list. We know he has quite the crush on Rihanna but we’re waiting to see the lady who will capture this bachelor’s heart. He also just aided Tiwa Savage in signing a deal with Roc Nation, maybe that’ll bring him closer to Riri!
Popularly known as ‘Nollywood’s bad boy’, Jim Iyke is still one of our Hottest Entertainment Bachelors.

Etcetera made the list in 2009 and he’s still a Hot Bachelor with those dreamy eyes. The guitar player is still single and can serenade you into falling in love! He’s also quite the writer… Poems and love letters anyone?
We’re not quite sure if he’s off our list or not, but married or single, D’banj is definitely one Hot Entertainer. Rumours went around recently about a secret wedding with Lineo Kilgrow, but sources close to the entertainer have still said nothing about this wedding. In other news, D’banj hosts Lip Sync Battle Africa and continues to give us some of Naija’s biggest hits like Emergency and Breaking News.
The rapper and actor was engaged to model and beauty entrepreneur Sarah Ofili in 2011. Today Ikechukwu is still single but he’s doing well in his different fields of interest like acting on Ndani TV‘s Gidi Up and he always remains stylish, he’ll definitely make one dapper groom *wink*. Ladies get in here!
The Nollywood actor made our 2009 list and he is still single today. Nonsi Diobi is known for his lover boy roles in some of our favorite early Nollywood blockbuster movies, we’re sure he’s a dreamboat just waiting for his Ms. Right.
Last but certainly NOT the least is Banky W, everyone’s favourite Hot Entertainment Bachelor as you ladies just can’t seem to get enough of him! Please stop claiming God sent you to be his wife. The singer continues to give us major hits back to back like Jasi, Yes/No, and make ground breaking business deals with Samsung and Even though most of his close friends around him have tied the knot already, we know great things take time.
