Here are 10 Under-30 Nigerian Female Celebrities We’re Crushing On



We already spilled the beans on the top 10 male celebrities under 30 we are crushing on for 2017 and now it is time for us to accord the ladies with the same respect. Young, hot and successful at what they do, we have selected a list of women who are kicking ass in their field, and very easy to look at.

For one thing, most of them there are still somewhat new to the scene, but love them or hate them, they deserve their spots on the list because of their irresistible appeal. Sure, they sometimes have a team dedicated to making them ooze supreme sexiness, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be wiping off the excess drool from your mouth at the end of this post.

From the ones with the charming girl-next-door vibe to the ones with a sophisticated air, or the ones that possess that undeniable sex appeal…here is a round-up of 10 ‘Under 30’ Nigerian female celebrities we are crushing on!

Adesua Etomi

Nigeria’s No.1 sweetheart, Adesua Etomi is the genetically perfect human specimen. Funny, witty and sexy, she has a girl-next-door charm that is as alluring as it enviable. You either want to be with her or be her. And not only is she irresistibly sexy and talented (she won the Best Actress in Drama, award at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards for her role in the 2015 romantic drama film Falling), she’s also engaged to the irresistibly sexy and talented Banky W.

Sharon Ooja

Actress and media personality Sharon Ooja is best recognized for her role as Tiwa’s sister Shalewa in the Ndani TV series Skinny Girl in Transit. She simply lights up the screen – from web series to movies. She’s also quite the stunner. That electrifying body and sexy face — just stunning! She’s just one of those hot ladies you really want to hate on, but simply can’t because she’s so damn gorgeous and genuine. Ugh!

Beverly Naya

Too Much Sauce! Beverly Naya is Hot on the Cover of Magazine (8)
British-born Nigerian actress Beverly Naya has been on the Nollywood scene for some time now, but we simply cannot get over her! The ‘Suru L’ere’ and ‘The Wedding Party’ star has something about her that screams Melanin Magic. She is a head turner, but her acting skills is what has put her career on wheels. She also has a knack for showing impeccable style on the red carpet. We love Beverly Naya!

Zainab Balogun

Model, actress and TV personality, Zainab Balogun is a combination of raw charisma and talent that is impossible to ignore or deny. One of the most attractive ladies in the business, there is something about the young celebrity that keeps the camera rolling. From her style to her flawless and youthful looks, it feels as though the star can do no wrong. Who hasn’t been guilty of drooling over her really? We’d give our right arm to go on a date with this hottie.

Ini Dima-Okojie

There’s no denying the fact that Ini Dima-Okojie is just hot all-around. Her face, her body, the way she walks- talk about a bombshell! The actress who dumped the corporate world to pursue her passion for the arts has since appeared and done fantastically well in a number of interesting projects in Nollywood, including ‘On the Real’ on Ebony Life TV and ‘Battleground’ on African Magic. We have hope that this enchanting female will continue to pick great roles that she plays so effortlessly.

Nancy Isime

Nigerian actress, model and media personality, Nancy Isime has an irresistible appearance and we are totally here for it. Besides being known as the presenter of the popular show Trending on HipTV, she has appeared in several movies and TV Shows, including Ebony Life TV’s reality series “On the Real’. She seems to be on a one-way track to success. Her variety in acting and smoking hot body makes Nancy a rising hot star that we won’t be taking our eyes off of anytime soon.

Dimma Umeh

BN Beauty Summer Bride get in here Dimma Umeh shares Bridal Makeup tutorial
One thing is clear: Dimma Umeh’s beauty tips work. The fresh-faced beauty vlogger  is indeed one to get your attention. She is a really beautiful woman; and it’s not because of the amount of make-up on her face either. Behind the powder and blush, she has a strikingly pretty face and a great body. She also has a delightful personality too which has led her to have a great fan following. Look at her! She certainly deserves a spot on our list.

Delphine Okobah

The Delphinator is a model, graphics designer and a film and TV enthusiast.  She won Miss Amity in the 2011 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria beauty pageant. More recently, she has delved into the world of vlogging about Nollywood movies. The YouTuber who refers to herself as a “multi-layered media mogul” is a complete babe. She has been in the game of looking cute and getting Internet attention, for her points of view on film and television content. She always entertains her fans and audience at her best. Her charm stems from her lilt and mega-watt smile and of course, being a strikingly-attractive, tall lady with a super attractive body helps.

Temi Otedola

Can we talk a moment to just admire how beautiful fashion blogger Temi Otedola is? Pretty, sexy and cute; she could pass for real-life Barbie doll. Did we mention she is also heavily loaded (her father’s worth an estimated £650million) and is considered one of Nigeria’s elites? Although she is heiress to a billion-dollar fortune, she is determined not to live off her father’s success and constantly work towards establishing her own career as a blogger. Definitely, she is beautiful inside and out! The crush we have will perhaps be eternal.

Makida Moka

Makida Moka

Model and actress, Makida Moka is insanely adorable! She gained a high popularity after she emerged the Face of Sleek, at the maiden edition of the competition. She has since walked on runways -both local and international, featured in two seasons of the hit web series “Gidi-Up”. She also landed roles in drama series including ‘Taste of love’ and ‘Battleground’. She also has a beautiful, tempting look, and a great body. She certainly is one of the hottest ladies under 30 we are legitimately crushing on.

Over to you BellaNaijarians, who would you put on your list of 10, under 30 sexy and successful Nigerian women? Share your thoughts!

      Chai, naija people and their complaining spirit. You can’t win with them mschewws Where are you when naija women in academics are celebrated all the time on this blog. You won’t comment then but your fingers get itchy to bash this post. After all, this is an entertainment blog.

    @yammie …no be small yawns…lol..i was like is this the best they can offer….grasping at straws…even Ngozi okonji iweala and dora akunyili generation is 100% better than this slay queens,online feminist generation we have today …the highest entrepreneurship they know is make -up and weave business or blogging and as usual modelling what no one knows about ….and please what the hell is TV/media personality?..Naija women won’t kill me oo

    • momo

      November 4, 2017 at 12:39 pm

      @daddy John of BN…i suspect somewhere in that rage is a deep love for Nigerian women ..if not you won’t really be bothered about commenting on their matter every time….and yes i believe their are young beautiful ladies under 30 in the medical , corporate , government and NGO space that are doing great things….but lets be honest people don’t really want to see those they rather comment about Toke and Toolz and the like ..and its a world wide thing not only in nigeria e.g. the kardashians

    • Smh

      November 4, 2017 at 5:06 pm

      Also what’s your obsession with calling Nigerian women olosho? Is your mother an olosho? Did she recently let you know that you are indeed not your fathers child? Or is it the poverty that is worrying you that is making you jealous of Nigerian women? Or is this a Bobrisky situation? See if you want to be a woman, bobrisky has paved the way for people like you no need to hide in the shadows and be posting vitriolic comments about Nigerian women because we have what you want. Come out John! Live your truth!

    This is a very stupid list.

    Powede Lawrence should make d list

  9. Lobaton

    November 4, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    This is not my definition of success.
    My definition of success are those who have made a bit of change and MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE’S OF LESS PRIVILEGE AND MAKING AN IMPACT ON SOCIETY in various ways. Why are you BN always talking about entertainers only. Same repetitive bullshit enough. I am bored

    Not Instagram famous I’m always posing for camera or attending red carpet bunch

    Bellanaija your exclusivity and partiality is DISGUSTING to the Highest order but this has encouraged me to start a better blog that celebrates “BN the nobodies” in society who are successful and making great impact yet not social media famous

  10. Dee

    November 4, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    Nice list but where are the non acting/model/tv/YouTube women? Where are the business entrepreneurs, the scientists and engineers, the legal practitioners, the tech geniuses?

    • John

      November 4, 2017 at 2:24 pm

      Where are the business entrepreneurs, the scientists and engineers, the legal practitioners, the tech geniuses?………..

      Dont blame BN…the truth is that they are fact , it is but tgey are few…theis generation of women are a bunch of oloshos in sheep clothing…that is the simple truth.. Female intelligence is highly celebrated because it’s rare… …behind any co called successful woman in nigeria there’s an Alhaji, a politician,pastor or a yahoo boy…simple and short

    • Smh

      November 4, 2017 at 5:00 pm

      John, I put it to you that you are highly and severely retarded. Really and truly. How would you know the doctors and the lawyers and the engineers when you yourself and are a nobody Alaba boy? Where would you meet them abi where would you hear of them from ? Even when BN posts about them we won’t see you there because you are a street urchin.
      As for those of you talking about this is not your definition of success please refer to igwe Tupacs song “shove it up your ass”. There are millions of Nigerian women succeeding in every field and they are killing the game. If you’re so interested in them a quick google search will help you. Or go on twitter sef. This list said CELEBRITIES!!!! When did lawyers doctors and scientists become celebs ? BB has done multiple features of those types of people but you never open them because you don’t truly care, your just messy! If they did an American list we would expect to see the Kim Kardashians and co so what is it? Why is the idea of beautiful women living their lives and chasing their dreams paining you? Abi is it their beauty paining you? Abeg take seat and relieve yourself of bitterness, the year is about to end.

      the post said celebrities, are there any engineer celebrities you know of, gosh you people like to complain about the stupidest things

    Adesuwa etomi is over 30

  12. Olapeju

    November 4, 2017 at 1:31 pm

    Uhm BN… I don’t think my Adesua is under 30 though. If I am correct, she was 31 in February. Kindly verify.

    • Tiramisu

      November 4, 2017 at 1:53 pm

      Yup, she is over 30!

    • Weezy

      November 4, 2017 at 2:06 pm

      Its hilarious. BN thinks only under 30 is worth celebrating, meanwhile they jejely slipped in an over 30 woman in the list. So BN are you going to remove Adesua now that she is no longer “young”?

    • Osa

      November 6, 2017 at 12:55 am

      @Weezy you cracked me up.

  13. Emegwoako Ikechukwu

    November 4, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Their real age weren’t mentioned in any of the articles, how sure are you that they’re under 30?

  14. Mrs chidukane

    November 4, 2017 at 1:59 pm

    The descriptions are lack luster and repetitive. Hot body,hot body for everyone.

    • Honestina

      November 4, 2017 at 4:19 pm

      The overuse of sexy and hot body made me uncomfortable.

  15. Mamamia

    November 4, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Adesua is beautiful but please get your facts right and stop relying on Wikipedia for information, do your research before posting. She is over 30 and not under. Pretty women by the way. I have a girl crush on Zainab Balogun.

  16. Weezy

    November 4, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    Sexy. Sexy. Actress. Model. Melanin Magic. Blogger. Rich family.

    This is your crush Bella Naija? The original men’s list was stupid, but this one goes even beyond.

  17. Livie

    November 4, 2017 at 2:09 pm

    Adesua Etomi isn’t under 30, she’s actually 31! Also Zainab Balogun is under 30??!!

  18. DavinaRose

    November 4, 2017 at 2:22 pm

    With the way you guys keep reducing Adesuwa’s age I’m sure she will be celebrating her big 30 by next year..

  19. Jemimah

    November 4, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    BN! You people have finally sold your souls to the devil for pay per click traffic. What a mumu post.

    • Ese V

      November 5, 2017 at 1:32 am

      really a mumu post!

  20. Busola

    November 4, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    One can’t help but notice that all these women have the same body build……Also, why is their beauty and body even relevant in a post about success????

  21. Grace

    November 4, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    Hmmm, is Adesua under 30? I thought she celebrated 32 or something. Please this is an honest question.

    That said, these women are doing their thing but does it mean once you’re part of a certain it crew, your name gets here. I know 28 year old women heading marketing teams of multinationals, etc and they never get mentioned.

    Miznwanneka that sells hair and owns a lounge should also be mentioned or does her being married disqualify her?

  22. Tee

    November 4, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    Her name is Adesua though. What’s with the W? This is such a crappy list, overall.

  23. tunmi

    November 4, 2017 at 4:47 pm

    why is there an age cap?

  24. Emmanuel

    November 4, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    Any successful blogger in the house please….

  25. DK

    November 4, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Hmmm… this list!
    First of all, people who I feel shouldn’t be on the list: Ini, Makida, Nancy and Sharon.

    How about Foza (entertainment lawyer), Claire Idera(fashion illustrator and arts and design tutor at Oxbridge), Jemima Osunde (medical student &actress), Powede Lawrence? (Not sure about their ages though?

    Why does this list also predominantly have “fine face, hot body, sexy” as the standard of beautiful and successful? What does the word “successful “ even mean???‍♀️??‍♀️ Hmmm

  26. Muyiwa

    November 4, 2017 at 6:51 pm

    Is there a reason why the men had their age written alongside their name but that of the women are excluded?

  27. Emmanuel

    November 4, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    What I meant was, is there any successful blogger in here or is there any you know of and do you have his or her contact..

  28. Zee

    November 4, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    BN please my adesua is not under 30. She turned 31 in February this year…. crappy list btw Biko don’t drag my fav into this mess again, next time do research

  29. Brizola

    November 4, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Please what has Powede achieved? She studied nursing at Niger Delta university and also went ahead to South Africa to learn how to fly planes.. What else or am I missing something?

    • the real ibinabo

      November 4, 2017 at 11:57 pm

      With the 2 things you have listed she has surpassed the ‘achievements’ of everyone on this list. Btw why is Temi Otedola on this list? BN is trying to famz I guess, hopefully Mr Otedola will pay for ads on this site #hiss.

  30. Hedx

    November 5, 2017 at 1:50 am

    So much bitterness!
    Everyone seems to be in a ‘complaining mood’

  31. bush man

    November 5, 2017 at 8:12 am

    where is LAURA IKEJI????

  32. Nancy Pedro

    November 5, 2017 at 3:38 pm

    Bellanaija is getting dumber and dumber each year. With your no effort research on anything always copy cut and paste from people’s Instagram and zero content blog. Just go thru all the bellanaija post and tell me where they put any effort in. None whatsoever

    . Extremely overrated blog just like Linda ikeji. It’s disappointing that mediocrity instead of excuses praised these days

    Stick to borrowing wedding photos to post here.

  33. TA

    November 6, 2017 at 9:54 am

    I thought Adesua is 29 years

  34. heiress-say-what

    November 6, 2017 at 9:58 am

    “Although she is heiress to a billion-dollar fortune, she is determined not to live off her father’s success and constantly work towards establishing her own career as a blogger”.
    I have a question, does that mean she completely lives off her blogging career?
