Top 12 Most Publicized Nigerian Celebrity Relationships That Failed
Celebrity relationships are usually made public and we get to see so much PDA photos and this makes the fans believe these relationships might end up in marriage.
Several celebrity relationships have been publicized to the extent that we couldn’t help but feel like both parties were meant for each other. Today, we’ll be taking a look at some relationships we had high hopes for but didn’t meet our expectations and it ended when we thought it was a forever thing.
Here are some of the most publicized Nigerian celebrity relationships that failed;
1. GENEVIEVE NNAJI AND D’BANJ
D’banj is one of Nigeria’s biggest music stars, so when he announced that he was in love with popular actress, Genevieve Nnaji and he gave us a really big hint when he featured her in his ‘Fall in Love’ video, every fan of both celebrities took it as a stunt but with time it appeated that they both actually shared something special.
They were both superstars at the top of their individual careers and it was thought that who was better for D’banj than Genevieve Nnaji and vice-versa.
After being spotted outside several times, it appeared both called it quits quietly and we didn’t get to learn about that later until D’banj spilled some truth in an interview.
JJC in a recent interview even revealed that Genevieve Nnaji loved D’banj so much and they shared something special together.
