Ninalowo and ex-wife
It is common knowledge that celebrity marriages in Nigeria have always been a popular issue among many.
This is owing to the rate at which these marriages have continued to fail.
Although many have thrived, others have regrettably ended, leaving their fans in disbelief.
Here are four celebrity marriages that have sadly ended in 2023.
Fans were stunned to learn that the 17-year marriage of popular Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo and his wife, Bunmi, had ended.
Ninalowo announced the breakup on his Instagram page on September 1, saying the split was for the benefit of everyone involved.
This won’t be the first time the couple would be making headlines for their relationship hitting the rocks.
In 2017, the actor in an interview with Genevieve Magazine revealed that after 12 years together, he and his wife had decided to divorce. They did, however, reconcile in 2018.
Yoruba actor and producer Yomi Alore aka Yomi Gold, announced the end of his second marriage to his wife, Meenah, in January 2023.
While announcing the divorce, Gold took responsibility for the marriage crashing, calling his wife a ‘good person’.
Nigerian Musician, Adebayo Adeleke aka BRed’s marriage to Faith Johnson ended in a split in 2023 after charges of cruelty and adultery.
The split couple, who shared a baby boy named Adetayo Oshioke Adeleke, who was born in 2019, have now unfollowed each other on Instagram and have continued to slight each other on social media.
Sobowale and her husband Odulaja tied the knot in June, the marriage however crashed in August.
The Lagos socialite attempted to end her life following the crash of her two-month-old marriage to her now-estranged husband, Demola Odulaja.
Sobowale was rescued from jumping off the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
Odulaja, who confirmed the rumours, said his two-month-old marriage to Sobowale failed due to alleged infidelity.
