Nigeria’s most eligible bachelorettes on parade (2)


RAVISHINGLY beautiful, high-flying and outgoing.  Rich and stable, but very much single and searching.

ENCOMIUM Weekly unveils the second part of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelorettes.



Ebube Nwagbo (2)


Pretty actress, Ebube Nwagbo is still very much in the market.  The screen goddess has done well for herself in the make believe industry.  Blessed with brain and good physique with a rick pocket, she is the toast of handsome dudes.

She has had her fair share of romantic woes.  She was linked to Super Eagles striker, Emmauel Emenike.  Her celebrated romance with Limpopo crooner, Kcee crashed after a couple of years.  Fans were disappointed because they were already expecting a fairy tale wedding.

The actress cum entrepreneur once said this about her relationship status, “I am someone who has always believed in love.  It is a big deal to me, so, if I have to do it, it has to be right.  I have a lot of proposals, it is crazy I do not know who to give a chance.  I think it is a price I have to pay for stardom.  Sometimes, when anybody comes my way, I do not know who wants to be with me for the right reasons.  I believe when that day comes, I will definitely figure out who that person is, it is not easy.  What I should be talking about is not relationship but marriage.  I want to go into marriage and be in it forever.”

We are waiting for her to say ‘I do.’





One of the dazzling OAPs with sexy, sweet voice and killer hips.  Though happily engaged, she is every man’s dream.  The host of Midday Show on Beat FM, has had a fair share of real and rumoured romances.  She was once linked with popular producer and Don of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy but they hurriedly denied it.

Also on the list is Lynxxx, even if it wasn’t denied, it is evident that it was just a tale.

When the news of her romance with Tunde Demuren went to town, the duo were quick to deny it.  In fact, they denied it on several occasions.  Now, they are happily engaged, waiting to walk down the aisle.






Controversial but loved actress, Tonto sure has made a name and fame for herself in Nollywood.  The bold, successful and pretty actress was known as Nollywood lead girl before she decided to take a break.

Quite unpredictable and tough, this has not deterred men from wooing her.  Currently in a relationship with Mr. X, if she does not come out tomorrow to deny it.  The relationship seems to be heading the right way.

Tonto has put her critics to shame time and time again by sticking to her words that she was going into music.  Her song, High, broke the records by having 3.2 million download in 24 hours, that is the highest in West Africa.  Sometime back, she said, “For now, I have no plans for marriage.  I just concentrate on my work and make myself happy.”  We hope she will change her mind some day.



Linda Ikeji

Linda Ikeji

Reputed to have made a career out of a hobby, Linda Ikeji is the most celebrated blogger in Nigeria right now.  She has made a fortune out of blogging.

Pretty and rich, she is still very much available in the market.  Since her much publicized relationship with popular American on-air personality, Dan Foster, she has kept her romance a top secret and concentrated on gossips.

Already in her mid 30s, we hope she will change her surname soon.





Yetunde Alabi, popularly known as Sasha P has made a fortune out of the music industry.  She defied all odds and made a name for herself in a genre only the bold can tread.

The first lady of hip-hop seems not to be in a hurry to settle down.  Sasha’s talent lies not only in music, she has also made a success with her clothing and shoe line, Eclectic by Sasha.  A lot of celebs take pride in adorning that label.

Sasha was rumoured to be dating Naeto C years back but they both denied it.

For reasons best known to the law graduate, she has managed to steer clear of dating regimes.  We hope it wouldn’t be long before she gets snatched by a prince charming.




Kemi Adetiba

Music video director, cinemato-grapher and presenter, Kemi Adetiba exemplifies the saying that hard work and persistence pays.  She is that spinster any mother would be proud to have as a daughter-in-law.

With her level of success, it will take a man with equal charm and pedigree to approach her.  She launched to limelight when she anchored Maltina Dancehall, TV reality show a job she did so well.

The beautiful, charming and talented film maker has built around her love life, a wall of secrecy, that alone has secured her position as the ideal lady to take home.






On-air personality, Gbemi Olateru started her career with Cool FM before moving on to Beat FM, there is no gain saying this lady is enjoying a flourishing career, her distinct voice has given her an edge above others.

The leading on-air personality has several awards to her credit.  Gbemi also doubles as master of ceremonies for high octane events.  She is a proud owner of a shoe line, Gbemisoke.  Gbemi is still very much single, despite her success.  She is in the league of celebs who guard their love life with all secrecy.

So far, she has not been linked with any eligible bachelor.




Oge Okoye

She started acting early 2000, though she has taken things slowly now, focusing more on business and motherhood.  With the level of Oge’s success, she is sure the toast of many suitors.  Rumoured to be in another romance now which might eventually lead to the altar soon.

Oge joined the list of eligible bachelorettes when her first marriage packed up.  Despite the fact that she was once married, this has not deterred suitors from coming around.
