Big hearts for fans but where are their sweethearts?

By Kemi Lawal


They are either musicians or stars of the movie industry. With a huge fan base, theirs can be likened to a cult. Some have been around for several years, while others climbed the ladder of fame faster than you could imagine.

Their looks, carriage, style, deep pockets in addition to their talents have endeared them to the hearts of many. But why are they still single despite this large following? Here are a few of these artistes:

Banky W

What could endear Banky W to the ladies? His sonority or his disarming looks? Born Olubankole Wellington, Banky W as he is famously addressed, was born in the United States of America.

He got his big break a few years ago when he made his presence felt on the music scene with the release of his album, Mr Capable, which won him several awards.

Thus began his reign and he ultimately became a ladies’ man. Raking in millions of naira from album sales, performance fees and endorsements, he also doubles as a record label owner/producer. But Banky W remains one of the hottest bachelors on the showbiz scene.

Tiwa Savage

Kele Kele Love crooner, Tiwa Savage is one of the few female artistes who made it to the top faster than most of her peers. Another overseas returnee, Savage, who honed her music skills overseas, has worked with notable artistes-Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child, Chaka Khan, Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Kelly Clarkson, Andreas Bocelli, Sting, 50 Cent, The Black Eyed Peas, Eminem and Robbie Williams, to mention a few.

Also a professional writer, she has got good looks and a svelte body. In fact, her stylish dress sense makes her a winner any day. Since men can’t take their eyes off her, why does she remain single? Her love life has remained a no-go area and is still under wraps.

Genevieve Nnaji

Dark skinned and lovely actress, Genevieve Nnaji has been variously described as Nigeria’s own Sharon Stone for her ability to interpret roles.

Perhaps Nigeria’s most celebrated actress, Nnaji, who began her acting career as a child actress has acted in over 100 movies and still counting.

Alongside her acting career, Nnaji also has a thriving modelling career that has seen her receive several endorsements. The single mother of one also had the honour of being featured on CNN, a rare feat among her colleagues. Widely believed to be in a relationship with celebrated music act, Dbanj, it has not lessened the number of those lusting after the single mother of one. As others, she is still very single.


One of the earliest female rap queens to emerge in this part of the world, Sasha, who was born Yetunde Alabi, has blazed the trail for several years with her style of music.

A winner of several awards, the law graduate from the University of Lagos is one of the rap stars that make hearts of the opposite sex skip several beats, all at once.

Flaunting a good build and a trendy disposition, which puts her on the list of best dressed elites, Sasha is a winner any day.

Rumored to be in a relationship with fellow act, Naeto C, the duo has denied the claim many times.

Naeto C

Of a laudable pedigree, Naeto C is one of the very few artistes who had an almost smooth climb-up the ladder of success perhaps owing to his talent and background.

He has successfully made a name for himself among his fans and the ladies inclusive. A master’s degree holder, Naeto C has punctured the claim that he is romantically involved with Sasha.

He was one time alleged to be in an affair with a well established model, all of these allegations have not robbed him of his sex appeal.


Identical twin sensation, Peter and Paul of the Psquare fame are just as hot as their music among ladies. The duo that have won awards locally and internationally are still the delight of the opposite sex many years after they made their debut on the music scene.

Also celebrated dancers, Peter became a father when his older lover, Lola Omotayo, gave birth to their son, Cameron. Almost four years after the birth, the pair is yet to tie the knots. Paul on the other hand, has confessed to being in a relationship with an unnamed lover for several years.


The brightest of the lot by industry standard, Innocent Idibia has come a long way in the music industry. One of Nigeria’s biggest exports, the Benue State born act is renowned for his music skills and in his exploits with women.

Still unmarried, he has a long and interesting history with ladies. A father of five children from three women, speculations have rent the air over which of these women will be his bride. But he has on several occasions, maintained that none of them will make it to the altar with him.


Real name — Dapo Oyebanjo. Dbanj has been touted to be the richest musician in Nigeria but that claim is still under contention.

The kokomaster, as he is called, is one of the biggest acts. His debut album No long thing which was released in 2005 yielded several singles including Tongolo which was a massive hit.

He followed it up with several albums that did well than its predecessors. His successful debut also led to collaborations with other artistes like Darey and Ikechukwu.

His energetic and charismatic performance is said to make him a sure winner with ladies.

Having publicly professed his love for star actress, Genevieve Nnaji, they are not deterred as a huge section believes the purported romance is a mere media stunt, which exists only on the pages of newspapers.

Don jazzy

A close ally of Dbanj, the walking-stick- wielding Michael Collins Ajereh, aka Don Jazzy, is a gifted producer/song writer. Still single, he has a charisma that ladies can’t get enough of. Till date he has not been linked to anyone but silent whispers have it that an undergraduate of the University of Lagos called Lara Animashaun, might be one of his favourite ladies. - Nigerian news, entertainment news, nollywood, naija, Nigeria, West Africa
