3. Innocent “2Baba” and Annie Idibia
Despite being together for a very long time and all that multiple baby mama drama 2Baba was involved in over the years, these lovebirds are still gaining more attention in 2018. Starting from the different videos they shared on Instagram like Annie’s twerking video, 2Baba serving Annie breakfast in bed, Annie taking in all 2Baba’s kids from his other baby mamas, need we forget the beautiful coca cola “Mama Di Mama” commercial with the whole family and more, these love birds have definitely made history on the internet and are still the talk of the town. With their latest Genevieve Magazine cover, new movie, “Power of 1” which was inspired by 2Baba’s protest rally story, it seems that this couple’s reign won’t let up anytime soon!
4. Linda Ejiofor-Suleiman and Ibrahim Suleiman
These Tinsel characters are still one of the latest couples in town, showing us that love really does exist on set. Like some of the celeb couples this year who surprised us with their wedding announcements when so many had no idea they were dating in the first place (Looking at you Lala Akindoju and Chef Fregz, you too Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi and Femisoro Ajayi), these love birds blew the internet away with their wedding news. Their beautiful outdoor wedding photos, emotional videos and more got people wishing to be in love. This pair did not stop at their wedding in showing affection towards each other, they are regularly seen looking adorable together at events and like most new couples, keep everyone drooling with their lovey-dovey captions on social media.
5. IK Ogbonna and Sonia Lareinaa
Actor, IK Ogbonna and Sonia looked like a match made in heaven, flaunting their love and affection towards each other to the delight and envy of others. They were definitely each other’s ride or die, ready to defend and clap back at any internet troll that came their way, and their jabs were always epic! Who would have thought that such a “perfect” union would come to an end? It’s still not clear what happened but guess not every love story ends happily ever after. They could still come back together, you never know.
