Female celebrities in Nigeria are always expected to get married at a point in their career.
And that is largely due to the societal expectation of a woman.
And even though a woman does not have to do that, neither should she be forced to settle down at a particular age, some of our favorite stars actually did meet/get married t0 their husbands at a young age.
You would be surprised to know who made the list. Check on it…
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde
The hot mama of four is a successful actress, entertainer and one of the few celebs who have given back to society.
But before the fame, a very young Omotola met and married her husband at 18.
Four children and a huge empire after, she still remains one of our ultimate Nollywood crushes.
Before her two adorable sons and a huge followership on Instagram, Adaeze was the winner of the 2008 MBGN pageant.
As at the time she won, the former beauty queen was 18. Then, she started dating Football star Joseph Yobo who prior to that time had been in a romance with Nollywood actress Uche Iwuji.
By 2010, Adaeze and Joseph Yobo had made it official by tying the knots. They welcomed their son, Joey months after.
Adaeze was just 20.
Annie Idibia might have married her Superstar husband Tuface when she was in her late twenties but the pretty ebony actress met him way before then.
Back in 1999, Annie was 15 when she met Tuface. And according to an interview she granted sunnewsonline, the pretty actress did not start dating him until 2002 when she was 18.
Tuface is ten years older.
Y’all gon free Tyga now? LOL.
However, even though Annie and Tuface did not get married until years later, their initial relationship began when she was just a teenager.
The Nollwood actress and producer has been around for a while and she is undoubtedly one of the hottest names in the business.
But before stardom, came a woman who married at the age of 21.
And even though Iyabo and her first husband have been over for a while now, she did go in early.
