Maybe for these guys it’s once bitten, twice shied. When these celebrities announced their decision to get married, it was the talk of the town for months.
It was even funnier when they walked the aisles in expensive tuxedos and designer wedding gowns, paying for some of the most exclusive event centers in the country.
Little did anyone expect that these marriages would one day fail or be preserved in the archives of “We Used to Be Married.”
Well, they did fail! In today’s list, we present seven divorced celebrities who have yet to say yes to each other after the failure of their last marriages.
1. Ini Edo
Ini Edo needs no introduction because she is one of the so-called Nollywood screen goddesses. Yes, she has had one of the most successful acting careers in the industry for more than two decades, but things haven’t exactly been perfect in the family.
In 2008, the movie star married Philip Ehiagwina, a businessman living in the United States. The marriage broke up in 2014 due to several allegations from both sides. The award-winning actress has been silent about her love life ever since and recently had a child via surrogacy.
2. Blossom Chukwujekwu
When Blossom Chukwujekwu started becoming famous in Nollywood, everyone wanted to know who the cute young man was dating. It didn’t take long before it became clear that he was in a serious relationship with Maureen Esisi.
The couple eventually got married and became the darling of social media. In September 2019, it became known that the couple had separated.
While blogs featured different reports about the reasons behind the marriage breakdown, the couple remained silent. Although Maureen made several cryptic comments about their failed marriage.
Blossom has remained a single prince and princess!
3. Tonto Dikeh
Tonto’s marriage with celebrity Churchill Olakunle remains one of the most talked about in the entertainment industry. Even worse was their breakup. Calling their breakup messy may be a euphemism if one is sincere.
The movie star overcame the messy breakup in 2017 and remained single until 2021 when she revealed that she is dating a self-proclaimed activist, Prince Kpokpogri.
While many thought the universe was working in favor of the mother of one, it turned out to be another messy and dramatic relationship.
The relationship lasted only two months and the actress has been single again since then and has no plans to find a new love.
4. Dr. Sid
At the height of his career with Mo’hits and later Marvin, Dr. Sid was one of the most eligible bachelors in town. He proved all the naysayers wrong when he walked down the aisle with lawyer Simi.
The wedding ceremony of the two was one of the most beautiful in Lagos. Problems in their marriage were first reported in 2017, but the couple stayed away from any public drama. In January 2020, Simi announced on her Instagram page that their marriage was over.
Sid has not commented on his divorce to this day. He continues to be single and many of his fans are waiting for the champagne to pop at his next wedding.
5. IK Ogbonna
When IK Ogbonna and his former wife Sonia Morales started tearing each other apart on social media after their relationship went on the rocks, it was obvious that it was only a matter of time before the inevitable would happen.
In August 2019, Morales announced that their marriage, which produced a son, was officially over. The formerly sweet celebrity couple moved on with their lives.
Ogbonna hasn’t been embroiled in any major controversy since and hasn’t exactly hinted at getting married again.
6. Toke Makinwa
Toke Makinwa’s marriage to Maje Ayide fell apart before she even became famous. The accusations of infidelity from Ayide didn’t exactly do him justice, especially since Makinwa was everyone’s favorite media girl.
In 2017, an Igbosere High Court in Lagos dissolved the marriage between Makinwa and Ayide, citing Maje’s adulterous lifestyle as the main reason for dissolving the marriage.
The fashion designer had been involved with several men but remained divorced.
7. Mofe Duncan
The divorce of Mofe Duncan and Jessica Kakkad was one of the most obscure breakups in the history of the entertainment industry.
The former couple has continued with their personal lives and refused to deal with the shocking split.
Ducan only recently revealed that he is dating someone. Perhaps he will be the first graduate of the Listicle.
