Ripe singles of nollywood

•As 2012 comes to an end, when will their day come?

BY JOSFYN UBA AND KATE HALIM

Just like the legendary story of a cobbler’s wife, who does not know when her husband’s payday will be since their source of income is dependent on people’s rough usage of their shoes and, until it goes bad, her husband is not sure of when the next income will come, so it can be likened to the story of these eligible Nollywood hotties.

As the year grinds to an end, the likely question on their minds is when, where and how their spouses will come. They seem to have outlived their single girlhood lifespan on the shelves. They are ripe and very ready. Yet, they are still hopeful that some day, perhaps, in 2013, their Prince Charming will emerge from any corner of the planet.

We present some of the hottest single ladies, who are still searching, not desperately though, looking forward to that blissful day, even as they desire to live happily ever after.

RITA DOMINIC

Rita is one woman you dare not look at once and walk away. She may have come in a small package but you just can’t discard her huge impact on others. She’s intelligent, talented and a power dresser any day. Rita has not been romantically linked with her colleagues or anyone in the entertainment industry but she has been in the news for allegedly having her heart beat faster for a popular Nollywood actor that loves to speak with American accent. Both have acted in many movies together but nothing seems to come out of the alleged affair.

Right now, the Theatre Arts graduate is happy with her life but not many know whether she sheds secret tears about not being captured by her Mr. Right. Fans and friends only hope 2013 doesn’t pass by without a ring on the fourth finger of her left hand.

GENEVIEVE NNAJI

Genny, as she is fondly called, is also described as the darling of Nigeria’s movie industry, known as Nollywood. One thing you can’t take away from her is her acting prowess as well as her classy dress sense.

Many feel something is lacking in Genny’s seemingly perfect life of fame, money and beauty – a man, who would capture her heart forever. Even though she is not known to be a sucker for love, Genevieve has been severally linked with some men both within and outside Nollywood. The height of it was when she was reported to be involved with the sitting number two man of the country during Olusegun Obasanjo’s tenure. Genny never came out to refute the rumours and neither did she state it was true. Perhaps, the one that resounded for long was her acclaimed romance with Koko master, D’Banj. She also maintained sealed lips about it too. She is beautiful, intelligent, classy and rich too. So, what’s keeping this 33-year-old mother of one from finding Mr. Right? No one knows. Nigerians hope to see her hooked next year.

BIMBO AKINTOLA

The history of Nollywood queens is not complete without mentioning Bimbo Akintola. She is one of the most versatile actresses Nigeria has produced. For those who know her, she is easy going. She is the third child of a family of six and a native of Oyo State, Nigeria. She started acting as a pupil with her peers for the school’s end-of-year drama events. One thing that mesmerises her fans is her ability to blend into any role given to her without qualms. But when it comes to relationships, not much is known about her. This is because she believes that age is no longer a barrier to marriage as it can come any time. But her fans feel she is missing the thrill of matrimony. Acording to her: “There is no such thing as an ideal man. There is no perfect man or woman. What you have is work in progress. Once you meet half-way, you just have to build from there.”

She is right but let’s hope 2013 will usher her into the journey of matrimony with an ideal man and one with whom she can build their future together. Even though she is not bothered about her marital status, well-wishers will be thrilled if she gets hooked with the right man next year.

CYNTHIA AGHOLOR

This busty Nollywood actress is not afraid to flaunt what she’s got no matter whose ox is gored. Cynthia Agholor’s ugly scar for being in Nollywood is being sexually harassed by many producers and directors in her early days in the industry. Starting out at the age of six with the popular kiddies programme ‘Tales by Moonlight’, Cynthia has been in the spotlight all her life.

She has had her share of love troubles when she dated a white guy. Years after the relationship hit the rocks, Cynthia is rumoured to be in a sizzling romance with a top Ghanian movie producer. The romance is altar-bound, according to the news making rounds. It is evident that the lovebirds are happy together and waste no time, flaunting their affection for each other openly. Nothing will thrill her fans more than to see the well-endowed actress get married next year.

QUEEN NWOKOYE

For this innocent-faced Nollywood actress, simplicity is her way of life. She has remained scandal-free since she joined Nollywood in 2004. This Sociology and Anthropology graduate of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, has endeared many to herself with her sweet girl roles.

But many wonder when this Nollywood good girl is walking down the aisle with a man after her heart.  And if you think she is not keen on getting married, then you are wrong. Marriage is on her mind but she is not in a hurry to settle down.  This pretty lady considers marriage a serious issue and not something one just jumps into.  She says: “If you jump in just because you want to change status, you will jump out of it in no time. That does not mean that I don’t have people who have proposed and are still proposing. There are even those who have been pestering me.” Queen only desires a lifelong matrimony. Let’s hope 2013 makes her wishes come true.

EBUBE NWAGBO

Despite Ebube Nwagbo’s flawless beauty and talent, she wasn’t spared the heartbreak of watching her ex-boyfriend, Kingsley Okonkwo of KC Presh, make a lasting commitment to another woman. Ebube’s journey into Nollywood has spanned over 10 years and yet, no man has been able to capture her heart for life.

Right now, this Nollywood diva and Mass Communication graduate from Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, is enjoying her status as a businesswoman. She owns Posh Hair and has directed her energy into building her brand. When it comes to marital issues, Ebube says most parents don’t want their sons to marry actresses or female musicians for fear that they would make bad wives. Of course, being a victim of such stance, her would-be husband should then know how to tread with his family, regarding her career. Perhaps, that is why she is taking her time, regarding marriage.

Ebube is not still single because she is an actress; she is waiting for the right man, who will love her, acting and all. But Nigerians just wish this Nollywood sweetheart would walk down the aisle next year despite the odds. Many pray she would find a man, who will trust and believe in her as well as appreciate her job as an actress.

HALIMA ABUBAKAR

You can call her Nollywood bad girl but she doesn’t care a hoot. Halima Abubakar took Nollywood by storm years back and there has been no stopping this never-say-die actress. Her rise to stardom wasn’t a bed of roses, given the tough times she experienced growing up. Her persistence paid off in the end and today, she is one of Nollywood’s darlings.

Although she has been in the centre of some scandals, Halima doesn’t bother herself any more about bad press. Her only concern is to keep forging ahead. On relationship matters, Halima believes in love but has restrained herself from making a lasting commitment to one man because some married people are running out of marriage. Halima believes that when the time is right, she will say yes to the one. She doesn’t believe in joining the bandwagon of ladies, rushing into marriage just to get a ring. She is not in a rush because she wishes to remain married for life like her parents, who have been together for over two decades. Fans just wish that the right time for Halima is 2013, as they are expecting to know who will finally steal Halima’s heart for life.

SUSAN PETERS

Susan Peters recently adopted a child and that singular act sent tongues wagging and brought to fore again her single status. Susan is a multiple award-winning actress and also a star of Nigerian TV. Her remarkable talent has paved a way for her in Nollywood and her dedication is equally infectious. She started acting in Nollywood movies in 2002 and despite increasing pressure for Nollywood actresses to perform raunchy love scenes and appear with little or no clothing, Susan has not followed suit.

Although Susan Peters is discreet about romance and has rarely been linked with any particular man in the press, marriage is definitely on her mind. She is one of those that have added finesse and glamour to Nollywood but she is not ready to jump into any marriage without working hard towards it. Susan confessed sometime of developing a fantasy on handsome fellow Nollywood star, Ramsey Nouah, but nothing has been heard about her love life. Nigerians just pray luck smiles on her in 2013 so that the child she adopted can have the love of both parents.

COSSY ORJIAKOR

This busty Nollywood actress is controversy personified. Her flagrant display of her God-given boobs have gotten her more haters than fans. But in all these, Cossy is hard to erase from one’s mind easily. Like her or hate her, she lives her life the way she deems fit. One question Cossy should answer is if she is ready to settle down soon.

She cried out at one time that she was tired of married men chasing her and sending her messages. At 37, no one knows for sure if the controversial actress is giving marriage a serious thought. Her fans wish her well in 2013. Many are actually pleading with her to settle down and raise children rather than continue displaying her boobs in public all the time.

EJIRO OKURAME

Pretty Isoko actress, Ejiro Okurame, joined Nollywood eight years ago and she has been able to hold her own in a highly competitive industry. Her role in Clinic Matters is so impressive and she has won many hearts with that feat.

At one time, it was rumoured that she was in a hot romance with fellow actor, Segun Arinze, but she clearly refuted it. Those in the know insisted that the two had a flame but kept it discreet. Ejiro Okurame is definitely thinking about settling down. Her fans wish her the best of luck next year.

  1. hey, i find this article as a mere gossip. after all, these ladies never cried out they needed husbands, so why pray for them to have one.
    i do not think they need life partners, so please leave them alone to live their lives

  2. it is outdated to think a lady needs a man to be complete. pls guys upgrade & update your psyche. most brains still holds to 20th century notion of a good life tht is oudated. ask the repu blican party in america who used 20th century idea for 21st century issue. they lost! who wants to play slave to any man when you have enough money & education to be independent? there are many ways to mop the floor these days that men may soon not be needed (lol)
    pls. ladies, if you ever decide to marry let it be a 50/50 mutual respect & responsibilty.

  3. my people, guys are not ready to go for out dated pomped breasts and hips like this one, she do not know what she is displaying yet till when the stuff got expired, then she will be jumping from one church to another,i am very much sure that any lady that keeps her self decent must surelly got married on a very good day,i rest my case.

  4. I here by apply for the hands of Queen Nwokoye in marriage.I so much love the girl right from the first day i watched her movie.But first of all let me get a good job lest i should be a liability on her.However,she can contact me through this number 07060788827

  5. Latifa, I can see you’re not thinking properly. Maybe your sister will stay without a man. No matter the amount of money a girl has, she’ll never be complete without a guy. As for me, I don’t think I would marry any actress.

    • U are the one not thinking properly-#stuckinthe20thcentury!
      Not every1 is destined to be married, so we the unmarried ones should stay miserable?

  6. This indecent exposure is disgusting, it is only a common prostitute that can expose her body this way to attract more blind customers. Soon she will start jumping from one deliverance church to another looking for solution – daughter of devil.

  7. U guys are just absolutely crazy. U call responsible ladies doing a job whores?I just don’t get it how some people just get online and say irrelevant things. That they are actresses in no way makes them wayward.I’m terribly disappointed in whoever it is that called dem whores. Its embarrassing

  8. As a man that appreciates the masterpieces of God ‘s creation,i will never condemn any Nollywood star practising her craft. Their popularity all over the world attests to their acceptance. But it is a job. Some of our men by their comments showed they lacked the wisdom to differentiate between acting and real life.Some of these beauties are mature and won’t let their success derail their home as long as the husband is comfortable. It is really sad that these beauties are opting for single life because our culture views successful women as a threat. They are really assets and it is time we appreciate their contribution to society.And to the shallowminded ones like Latifa,who thinks she needs nobody,lets hope you didn’t get old enough to need somebody to bathe and wipe your ass.

  9. People like latifa will decieve other girl to remain single but will immidiately get herself married once she gets a proposition from a guy.hipocrite,i’m sure u’re the type that suck dick.slut.

  10. Latifa is a wounded lion and she is seriously in need of natural medicine to cure her wounds. The onus fact is that she is out of the system and seriously in need. Probably she lost out because of her arrogance that can be smelled from her comment. Whatever a woman acquired, she still questionable to her husband and it is no 50/50 regardless of her education and wealth.
    She knows what she going through physically, psychologically, bodily, emotionally, and financially. My candid advice for you is to go and marry rather than finding unlawful and illegal solution to mob the floor. Use the best way to mob the place in order to produce blessed products. It looks ironical but you deduce points from my statement. Go and find responsible man in your life and desist from any sorts of pontification.
    Thanks Baby Latifa

  12. ITS NOT ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, FAME, NOLLYWOOD AND BEAUTY.

    ITS ALL ABOUT SAVING THE YOUNGER
    GENERATIONS FROM SELF DESTRUCTION. I BEAT UP MY YOUNGER ONES EVRYDAY BCOS OF MERCY JOHNSON AND OTHER CRAZY HOME MOVIES AND GHANA.

    PEOPLE HAVE BN ACTING MOVIES B4 WE WERE BORN & WILL CONTINUE EVEN WHEN WE ARE GONE.
    THIS MADNESS CALLED NOLLYWOOD CAN’T BE OF ANY HELP TO US IF WE DON’T SEARCH OUR CONSCIENCES .’

  13. AND TO U LATIFER,
    U SEEM TO BE A SELF PERVERTED EGOIST, I DON’T KNOW WETHER U BELIEVE IN GOD, BCOS U DONT EVEN BELIEVE IN YOURSELF FROM THE WAY U COMMENTED.
    GOD MADE ADAM & EVE FROM THE BEGINNING THUS GAVE US D COMMAND. AND ANY OTHER PERSON OR IDEA TELLING U DAT U CAN USE A -MOBING STICK TO ACHIEVE A DIVINE WILL
    IS DEFINITLY COMING FROM D DEVIL !
    THERE4 MY SISTER WE LOVE U DATS WHY WE WORRY.
    PLS DESSOCIATE URSELF FROM DAT GROUP OR IDEA OF URS DAT IS AGAINST HUMANITY.

    ALWAYS READ UR BIBLES
    SOME OF THESE PEOPLE U WATCH ON UR SCREENS ARE SERVING D DEVIL, IT IS NOT 21st CENTURY TREND AS U TINK. BE WISE
    SO MY SISTER TAKE HEED

  14. Their arrogance will not guarantee them good and responsible husbands. They are only good to quench guys thirsty when they are available, Latifa is a frustrated lady, so you can not blame her for such devilish advice in her comment.
    I wish them best of luck in the new incoming year.

  15. lafia is nothing but a slut.no man/woman is complete without the other sex.the celebrity believe is killing even the American society.most of their celebrities are either gay or heterosexual;having kids from three to four partners.tell me slut lafia- is that the kind of life you prayed for? if you believe a woman is complete without a man,why do date a man? and if your answer is no; why do you finger yourself/masturbate-whore?Get down to reality and look/beg for a man to love and fuck you.this is my candid advice to you.

  16. The truth is that Latifa is fraustrated, may be due to stiff competion from the rampaging teens in the society. Ladies like Latifa have outgrown beyond the marriagable ages therefore they need no man in their lives any more. Possibly her ‘honey well’ has dried up and must have suffered a lot from her hit and run lovers! It’s a pity. What Latifa fail to understand is that no other object(s) is suitable for her ‘socket’ than the ‘plugs’ made by God and handed over to man for woman’s corrective surgeries.

  17. I no fit mary actres. Can u imagine a situatn wia ur childrn r watchn movie wia dia mum is makin love. Tufiakwa, alu. 4 rita dominic, a smoker. 1st let ha giv up smokn

  18. There are Nollywood actors who have married and remain happily so. Those who are not married are in a better position to know why. Why, for instance, should one spare a thought about marriage concerning a ’33 year old mother of one’? Give me a break please and let us discuss more important issues. Didn’t you remember those who had gone in and out of marriage among the artists?

  19. Count me out of those that will marry an actress. Ashawo, shameless people. God 4bid. I will rather remain single 4ever than marrying any of them. In fact I have stopped watching their movies bcos I hate seeing those actresses.
