What defines a perfect relationship for you?
Maybe when both sides share roles and responsibilities. Maybe you see the man as the breadwinner,
and the woman as an exemplary housewife. Whatever the model, you’d probably agree that cooperation
and having each other’s backs is the key for a successful, genuine, working partnership.
In today’s Top-5, we’ll look at famous high-profile couples in Nigeria. The couples
are prominent in different spheres – from business to entertainment. Some of them are
newly married, some have only recently started dating, some have been through it all and
their love is as strong as ever. They have our attention, inspiring us to seek for what
satisfies our hearts and fulfills our souls. One. Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu.
For a hot second, it pappeared that Fani-Kayode was in deep, deep trouble when horrible allegations
emerged of him treating his wife in a terrible manner. However, the former aviation minister
and outspoken politician quickly reacted to nip the rumours in the bud. Whatever your
views on Nigerian politics are, you will agree that Femi Fani-Kayode looks very much in love
with his beauty queen, model, actress wife. And that the sentiment is returned by his
adoring spouse. They are obviously each other’s strength and support system.
Two. John Mikel Obi and Olga Diyachenko. We have faith in Nigeria’s proud son Mikel
Obi who will be playing in the team representing our country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in
Russia. Woo-hoo! He is Nigeria’s rock. But who is Mikel’s rock? Simple. His Russian
wife Olga and their twins. Olga appears to have a strong and witty personality. Really
fitting for a wife of a iron-willed athlete! Not to mention that the two look really great
together. Three. Folorunso Alakija and Modupe Alakija.
If you’re following Forbes Richest list or are genuinely admiring self-made Nigerians
who have won at life, you must’ve heard the name Folorunso Alakija. This Nigerian oil
magnate is one of the richest and most powerful women of African descent in the world. She
has been married to lawyer Modupe Alakija for over 40 years. The two are happy parents
and grandparents. This admirable icon proves a woman can handle it all: Her business empire,
her family. And that a marriage can indeed surpass the four decade mark and beyond.
Four. Pastors David Oyedepo and Faith Abiola Oyedepo. This Nigerian power couple are at
the helm of the Living Faith Church Worldwide. They have been married since 1982! Long-lasting
marriages are not a rare thing in Nigeria, of course. But it is nice to see a couple
set an example and show that it’s possible to combine personal life, spiritual calling
and hard work even after three decades and counting.
Five. Davido and new girlfriend Chioma. Davido is 25 and has two daughters with two different
women but is currently not married. Recently, he has been seen more and more frequently
with a beautiful girl named Chioma, a student. The two are the hottest new couple in Nigeria.
So what could it mean when a man announces he wants a baby from a woman he’s with,
or takes her to family events? Most probably that the man at least wants her in his life.
We’ll see if this new thing between Davido and Chioma stands the test of time. Maybe,
in 10 years’ time, they will be present in Naij.com’s Enduring Love list. Today,
let them enjoy their moments together. This was Naij.com’s our list of top celebrities
whose strongest support comes from their other half. Who’s your personal favourite? Subscribe
