Sometimes love is made to last but other times the sweetness of romance has an expiration date. No one knows this truth more than Nigerian celebrities.
Here are five celebrity couples who lost the sparks and called it quits.
Yvonne Nelson and Iyanya: Once upon a time, Nigerian musician, Iyanya, was so smitten by Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, that she inspired a line in arguably the biggest song of the musician’s career. Things did not stay rosy in their love garden for long as their eight-month-old relationship came to an end in the face of infidelity rumours.
Uche Jombo and Ikechukwu Uche: It seems like forever ago when actress, Uche Jombo, and Ex Nigeria Super Eagles star, Ikechukwu Uche, were the hottest couple on the scene. The celebrity duo went their separate ways in 2011 after years together.
Kate Henshaw and Sammie Okposo: Cheating allegations brought yet another altar-bound relationship to an end. Although Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, and gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, have moved on, there was a time when they had the hots for each other.
Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin: Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin not only fell out of love but also had quite a sour and nasty breakup. Franklin has since moved on and married actress, Lilian Esoro with both currently separated.
Genevieve and D’Banj: Theirs was a match many thought was made in Nollywood heaven. Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji, and musician, D’Banj, made Nigerians go ‘aww’ when they kissed in the music video for D’Banj’s ‘Fall In Love’ video. But, it wasn’t meant to be.
