8 Nigerian Couples Who Met On A Movie Set

People get so caught up in work most times that they forget to make human interactions geared towards marriage and long term goals sometimes.

But imagine how cool it was if you could be at work and still meet the love of your life and live happily ever after. Seems like a fairy tale. But it actually isn’t

Nigerian actors, just like their foreign contemporaries have met on set and everything good has blossomed from that relationship. Here are a few work relationships that have led to marriage:

1. Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro

Gbenro and Osas were both TTY cast members on popular Africa Magic TV show, Tinsel. They got engaged in 2014. Gbenro played the role of Soji and Osas was Adanna on the show. They got married almost a year later in the United States.

2. Gloria Anozie and Norbert Young

In an interview conducted by Vanguard, Gloria Anozie attributed her marriage to the fact that she was seeing her husband very often. The duo got married in 2002 and still waxing strong till date.

3. Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite

Tinsel apparently is such a love nest because Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite also met on the show. They played the roles of Kwame Mensah and Telema Duke respectively. They got married in 2015.

 

4. Isaac and Nneka Moses

Isaac and Nneka Moses met on the set of a movie in 1996 and have looked so damn good on each other ever since. They look alike all the time we see them on their culture and tourism show, Goge Africa.

 

5. Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva

No way we would have left the real relationship goals that Olu and Joke give us all the time. Olu met his beautiful wife at the casting of a Wole Soyinka novel – Jero’s Metamorphosis at the National Theatre and they’ve been living happily ever after since then.

6. Iyke Okechukwu and Florence Uwaleke

 

7. Chacha Eke and Austin Faani

8. Iretiola and Patrick Doyle

Ireti and Patrick Doyle met her husband while working at the production company as a part-time staff. Patrick Doyle who is a veteran broadcaster was Ireti’s boss at that time and one thing led to another and here they are. They have beautiful children and look so good together.
