Top 5 Nigerian Celebrity Breakups

 So sad how fast love can turn to hate. I guess the saying 'there is a thin line between love and hate' really is true. Today I would be showcasing a list of Nigerian celebrity couples that broke up after the world thought they were going to be together forever. Let's get right to it.

5.  Jim Iyke and Nadia Buari
Although Nadia Buari is Ghanaian, she was very prominent in Nollywood movies in the past and still continues to appear in Nollywood movies till this day. Jim Iyke and Nadia Buari were Nollywood sweethearts when they dated between 2013-2014. They were even engaged at some point. But it all ended in 2014.

4.  Ice Prince and Maima 
This is another Nigerian-Ghanaian connection. Ice Prince is a Nigerian rapper, and Maima is a sexy Ghanaian video vixen that spends more of her time in Nigeria than in Ghana. Ice and Maima dated for a while through the early part of 2015, until one day when news of her cheating on him with an Abuja big boy hit the internet. Even after picture evidence of Maima and the guy in several places together hit the Internet, Ice Prince still stood up for his girl. But some time this year, he secretly ended the relationship with Maima. 

3.  Saheed and Fathia Balogun 
These two were married for a whole 7 years (they separated in 2006). Fathia still uses Saheed's last name even though they have been celebrated for more than 9 years now. Saheed a great actor and movie producer in the Nigerian Yoruba movie scene, and Fathia a lovable actress in the same industry. They had two kids while together.

2.  9ice and Toni Payne
9ice quickly rose to fame in the music industry in 2007. The juice behind him was none other than his manager, Toni Payne. She gave him all the push he needed for success, and his talent did the rest of the work. They fell in love along the way, and in 2008, they got married. Two years later, shortly after the birth of their son, Zion, they were separated.

1.  Tiwa Savage and Teebillz
This is definitely the most controversial breakup on our list. Tiwa Savage is most definitely the biggest female artist in Nigeria. Like 9ice, she also got a lot of help from her manager on her come up. She later fell in love with that manager (Teebillz- Tunji Balogun), and sometime in 2014, they got married in Dubai. Their wedding ceremony still is one of the biggest celebrity weddings in Nigerian history. They were the Jay Z and Beyonce of Nigeria. Two years down the line, and they are separated. From the 45 minutes long interview Tiwa gave Pulse in aApril of this year, she revealed things had already ended between her and Teebilz a year into the wedding.

She had caught him doing cocaine; he had been stealing from her as a manager and she had to fire him; he had also been cheating on her with an 'edible caterer.' Teebillz side of the story was that she cared more about her career than their marriage, and that she never cooked for him. They have one child together; a son called Jamil.
