How great is it to find that partner that you not only love, but you are able to do everything with them. These power couples exude confidence, are impeccably put together, complement each other and have so much clout, both socially and politically.

From the perfect appearances and the projects they tackle, to the good they do for others and the community at large, we did a little digging and found the power couples in Nigeria. Take a look. 

2Face and Annie Macaulay


The singer and songwriter and the Nollywood starlet’s romance is anything but typical.

Their love story started during the 1990’s, before 2Face was the big star he is today, after Annie appeared in his music video for African Queen.

Their relationship took several detours, with other relationships and 2Face fathering children with other women, but it’s clear their relationship was meant to be.

2Face and Annie are both superstars in their own right, and when you put them together, they shine even more bright. They’re committed and supportive of each other, and always sharing their love notes to each other on their social media pages.

Banky W and Adesua Etomi


The singer and actress are a true Nollywood story – they met on a red carpet just before a glamourous event.

Their 2017 society wedding featured a guest list of Nigeria’s A-listers, in fact their wedding was the most talked about event of the year.

When they’re together, they radiate – their fashion style screams sophistication, fun and regal and their matching outfits always look so effortlessly put together.

Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs


Nollywood’s royal couple and acting legends have been married for decades.

Although Joke wasn’t initially interested in Olu when they met at a theatre, romance was soon on the cards, the couple said “yes” and their marriage has been blessed with two children.

The couple, who have several acting awards between them, serving as an inspiration to the younger celebrities, and their relationship and marriage has been void of scandal and rumours of infidelity.
