The whole world buzzes about the ones that bite the dust, so why not the ones that have made it through many years unscathed by the media scrutiny and unshaken by what the world thinks.
Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs
Their marriage has being in existence longer than Nollywood itself and the two of them have been actively involved in the arts in Nigeria for over two decades.
Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs have two children and what clearly seems to be a strong bond that has kept them together over the years.
See people? Your spouse does not need to have the password to your phone before y’all stay together forever.
Peju Omobolanle and Sunday Omobolanle
Probably one of the least media-hyped marriages in the Industry, Peju Omobolanle nee Ogunmola and her husband, Sunday Omobolanle have been together for over twenty years.
And even though Peju is not the Comedian’s first wife, she’s the wife who shares the same career path with him and is said to be the major influence on Sunday’s son’s (Sunkanmi Omobolanle) acting career.
Maybe not your regular Jay and Bey relationship, but this union is worth celebrating.
Iretiola Doyle and Patrick Doyle
The graceful Iretiola Doyle has been in the Industry for quite sometime now but before she was the favorite on our TV screens, there was her husband, Patrick Doyle, who played Pastor in the early Nollywood movies.
Iretiola and Patrick Doyle might not strike you as the regular picture perfect couple, but their relationship is one of the strongest in the Industry.
And who wouldn’t love them?
Henrietta Kosoko and Jide Kosoko
Henrietta might not be a constant on your TV screens and it would be okay if you have to hurriedly google her name before returning to complete this article. But, no be today yansh don dey for back with this woman.
The actress who sometimes goes to movie sets with her husband just to support him has been in his life for a very long time now.
And we can boldly say Jide Kosoko is one of the most celebrated Yoruba actors and one of the few most successful ones in the Yoruba arm of Nollywood, to have appeared on the big screen in the past few years.
They say behind a successful big man is a big great woman and we couldn’t agree more.
Diane and Charles “Charly Boy” Oputa
The couple has been married for over thirty years and even though the nude pictures Charly boy shares with Denrele might reign supreme in your mind… up until the point you can’t block it out… forever… and you want to seriously cuss them out for it… or just deposit yourself at the nearest MFM for deliverance…
They have kinda been married for over thirty years.
Inarguably one of the most unconventional couples in the Nigerian entertainment industry (oh yeah, your mind can travel back to those cringe-worthy Adam and Eve themed shoot now… sorry!), Charly boy and his wife have been able to spice the marriage up for years being… er… unconventional and fun.
Anything to keep it together abi?
