There is no doubt that Bolanle Ninolowo, aka Nino B, is one of the male actors that many female fans find attractive. During the week, the recently separated actor posted a video of himself and actress, Damilola Adegbite, and added the caption, “That hateful energy— too pricey! Love don’t cost a thang”. This led to speculation among fans that the duo are now in a relationship.
Recall that Ninolowo recently got separated from Bunmi, his wife of 19 years. Announcing the end of the marriage, he had written on Instagram, “Finally, I accept the reality of the end to a road! My wife and I have decided to go our separate ways and headed for an irreconcilable marriage dissolution.
“Please respect our privacy and pray for us during this process as we heal and move on with our independent lives, while jointly taking care of what we love most— our children! God bless all.”
The couple had two kids before their separation.
An actress, Damilola Adegbite, got married to a Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, in 2015. She got engaged to Atto after they met on the set of the soap opera, ‘Tinsel’, in 2014. Their marriage later ended in 2017.
Adegbite had given an indication that all was not well with their union when she stopped using Attoh’s surname and deleted all photos of him from her social media account.
Adegbite, who finally opened up about the marriage crash in an interview with media personality, Jude Chinowo in 2021, noted that she had no regrets. She said, “Love is not enough. When you meet somebody and want to spend the rest of your life with them, love is just one of the qualities you need but it’s not everything. The only regard that I would have for him right now is that he’s the father of my son and of course, the past experiences. Because like I said to you before, I don’t regret anything. Everything that happened was for a reason.”
However, it is not in doubt, that the actress has not had a shortage of admirers, with some fans even stating their desires to date her.
Funke Akindele is one woman who is loved by many, especially as she has set exemplary standards in the film industry through her numerous achievements.
She got married to a songwriter, rapper and director, Abdulrasheed Bello, aka JJC Skillz, in May 2016. The couple later welcomed twin boys in December 2018. However, their marriage hit the rocks in June 2022.
Informing fans that they had separated, JJC Skillz wrote on Instagram, “Dear friends and family, I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted, we shared a lot of things and have created two beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now.”
Meanwhile, that was the actress’ second marriage. Her first marriage had ended in a similar manner when her then-husband, Kehinde Oloyede, announced the separation between himself and the actress via a Facebook post in 2013, after about a year of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
The actress has obviously moved on and has continued to break new grounds in her film and political careers. Many would also give an arm and a leg to be in a relationship with her.
A popular actress and TV host, Osas Ighodaro, does not hesitate to flaunt her sexy body and eloquence, especially when on the red carpet, and this has won her the admiration of many fans.
Ighodaro got married to a fellow actor, Gbenro Ajibade, in July 2015 and their wedding was attended by many celebrities. Unfortunately, the marriage barely lasted four years, as the duo went their separate ways in 2019. Since then, the actress has continued to put in much energy in her career.
Actress, Tonto Dikeh, met her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, in 2014 at Escape Nightclub, Lagos. Dikeh became pregnant six months after they started dating and they got married in August 2015 in her hometown in Rumukani, Rumukwuta, Rivers State. In 2016, they had a son together but unfortunately divorced the following year.
Though the marriage ended controversially, Tonto Dikeh did not let that affect her looks. The actress has remained the dream girl of many male fans, and she was in another well-publicised relationship with a socialite, Prince Kpokpogri, which crashed in controversial circumstances in 2022.
Kate Henshaw is 52 years old but her looks belie her age as she has done a great job of keeping herself fit despite her age. Henshaw cares deeply for herself and this has made her attractive to many fans.
Henshaw tied the knot with her British husband, Roderick Nuttal, in 1999 and they welcomed a daughter the following year. However, the couple got divorced in 2011.
Actress, Yvonne Jegede, got married to her ex-husband, Kunle Fawole, aka Abounce, in February 2017. The couple welcomed a son in November of the same year. Jegede and Fawole later went their separate ways two years after in 2019.
