Five top Nollywood actresses who married other women’s men

Funke Akindele

Popularly called Jenifa, the 40-year-old Ikorodu-born funny actress’s marriage to Mr. Kehinde Oloyede can be said to be one of the shortest marriage in the history of Nollywood.   Everyone, aside the actress knew the marriage was bound to end before it even started. A superstar in the Nigerian movie industry and a University of Lagos graduate, walking down the aisle with a man who already has about six children from three women?

Talking about how the union went awry, the ever funny actress said: “I was abused emotionally and verbally. Really, I felt we could work things out when the trouble started two months after the marriage, but I made up my mind and shut the door of the marriage at him when the trouble was coming to me too much. I stooped to conquer him; buried my fame and name to make him my husband, but it did not work.

Ini Edo

 Sultry actress Ini Edo got all blogs buzzing when news came out that she was getting married in 2008 to her American-based hubby, Phillips Ehiagwina. A year earlier, a woman, Ruth, who was said to be Phillips’ wife (as at that time) allegedly wrote an open letter to the actress, warning her to steer clear of her husband.

Mercy Johnson

In 2011, one Mrs. Lovely Okojie sent out an open letter to Mercy Johnson to please release her husband and find a single man to marry. According to the woman, the man in question is the father of her two children and he was still legally married to her at the time.

All these did not stop the wedding from taking place. Although it caused a bit of delay, the two lovebirds exchanged their vows at a Christ Embassy Church, Oregun, Lagos on Saturday, August 27, 2011, amidst tight security. They are still together, waxing stronger and have been blessed with kids.

Nujella Njubigbe

Not many Nigerians knew Nujella until news went around that she broke her colleague’s home.

The fast rising actress was however quick at discrediting the news that she was sleeping with ace Nollywood producer, Tchidi Tchekere. Tchidi was married with 3 kids to Sophia Tchekere, another beautiful actress. The oga producer later ended his six years marriage to Sophia and moved in with Nujella at a new apartment in Ajah. They have been blessed with a baby and they are still very much together.

Stella Damasus-Aboderin

This particular actress is on the list because of the kind of bad publicity she generates when it comes to men. Reports went viral that the beautiful actress and mother was harbouring another actress, Doris Simeon’s husband, Daniel Ademinokan, but she debunked it, calling it an absurd and senseless report.

Fast forward to few months (abi nah years) later, the lovebirds are on our social media, professing love for each other, with the poor Doris Simeon living her life as it comes. life has been shattered. Doris Simeon and Daniel Adenimokan had a kid, while Aunty Stella has three girls from her first husband. Did we miss anyone on the list? Do add in the comment section!
