Let’s admit that we saw some of these breakups coming. But among the many listed, there were some we never imagined would come to a tragic end. We won’t judge (because we all have our failed relationships as well) but you got to admit that in some cases where the couple were all over social media flaunting their “perfect love” you did feel a little sense of satisfaction when it was over. Admit it!
- IK Ogbonna and Sonia La Reinaa:
Ik introduced his lovely wife Sonia to his fans in 2015 and everyone went gaga. Sonia certainly is a beauty to behold. This mix of hot Latino fire and hard Naija firewood burned all over social media. Unfortunately this year, the fire burned out. Sonia promptly took IK’s name off her Instagram page and the rumors of the breakup began. IK has since then taken to accusing and fighting his perceived enemies on social media who have mocked his breakup with his wife. It appears he is keen on winning back her love, but a recent hack on BBN Naija star, Nina’s Instagram that alleges that IK sent compromising pictures to Nina, does not help his makeup case with Sonia.
2. Iceberg Slim and Juliet Ibrahim:
What happens when you mix Ghana Jollof with Nigerian Jollof? The answer to this question was what happened between Juliet Ibrahim and Ice Berg Slim in 2018. First, it was sweet and had plenty of flavors, then after a while it was weird, then it just spoilt. The odd Ghanaian-Nigerian couple introduced themselves to fans last year and after that, not a day would go by without a post of how much they love each other on social media. Then the weird pictures of Iceberg grabbing Juliet’s booty. After a while, there was an odd silence from the couple before Juliet finally announced that it was over.
3. Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro:
Another marriage made in Tinsel went down like a soap opera. Trouble appeared to be in paradise when the “monitoring spirits” on social media noticed that the two were no longer following each other on Instagram. Gbenro also did not wish his pretty wife a happy birthday on her birthday, and so the rumors started. Well, it turns out that the marriage of almost four years which is blessed with a two-year-old daughter is all but over. The couple has since deleted all images of each other on social media and seems to have moved on with their lives.
4. Miracle and Nina:
Miracle and Nina are a couple made in Big Brother, the popular reality TV. The lifespan of such relationships has never been long, and this one seems not to be an exception. After a hot romance on BBN Naija that included alleged humping under the sheets on live camera, the relationship took a hit when Miracle emerged the winner of BBN and he kept avoiding addressing the status of the relationship in interviews. Finally, in September, Miracle released a direct statement on Instagram that he and Nina are not in Love and not in a relationship. The post obviously embarrassed Nina, and it seems Nina finally had it with him. No need bothering with a guy that cannot commit.
