You see, once in a while, weird things happen.
Two Actors who have zero chemistry and who clearly aren’t meant to be together in this world, in all the other worlds combined, in the great beyond or even in our imaginations are thrown together in a movie and BOOM! a very weird onscreen couple is created.
In case you don’t know, weird onscreen couples are usually a recipe for disaster in romantic comedies/dramas.
Here’s a list of the most ridiculous pair selling love to us in Nollywood history.
Segun Arinze and Genevieve Nnaji
It is no surprise that the Producers of the movie that paired this duo as a couple, decided to go with the title “Could This Be Love”. They just had to be safe because of the obvious criminal act they committed.
Weirdest relationship ever, having the Eyes Prince and the Queen Genny thrown together as lovers. Guys, this is the worst thing that ever happened to us, not the hike in the price of tomatoes. This right here is the worst. Ever.
Ramsey Noah and Funlola Aofiyebi – Raimi
In The Figurine, Ramsey Noah and Funlola Aofiyebi – Raimi somehow got cast as lovers. Asides from the zero chemistry they possessed, it was easier checking out the colors of the drapes than actually watching these two together.
We were very relieved when they didn’t work out. But hey, Funlola’s head wrap was a delight to see! That, if you ask me, is good chemistry; Funlola’s head and the headwrap of course.
Joseph Benjamin and Tina Mba
These two were actually supposed to have an affair in Tango With Me but it was really hard tangoing with both the relationship they had and the one Joseph had with Genevieve in this movie.
We just couldn’t tango. How could we have tangoed when now, more than three years after, imagining them as a couple alone induces migraine?
Baba Suwe and Funke Akindele
When Baba Suwe and Funke Akindele emerged as husband and wife in Baba Jayejaye, drinking bitterleaf juice instantly became more appealing.
In fact they got us thinking…
However, they did make us laugh. But that will never stop them from appearing on the list of weirdest onscreen couples in Nollywood.
Omotola and Jim Iyke
Last Flight To Abuja was the last straw that broke our camel’s back. This is not a competition but this
crime couple are hands down the weirdest onscreen couple ever!
How do you…
Omotola and Ali Nuhu
Before the flight to Abuja in Last Flight To Abuja, Ali Nuhu and Omotola were the initial couple. Does it make sense? Well, if you’re confused, so am I.
I still don’t understand and will probably never forgive this casting.
I will forgive the hike in spaghetti prices before this is ever forgiven.
There you have it – courtesy of whoever cast them together – the weirdest onscreen couples in Nollywood history.
