For celebrities dating cannot be very easy. When you have a whole nation of people who already know who you are, finding genuine people who like you just for you and not for fame or a role you acted in or the quality of your music isn’t very easy. This is why a lot of times, celebrities end up dating and even marrying fellow celebrities. I guess the reasoning for this is that fellow celebrities understand the expectations, pressures, and hardships of dating in the public eye. It could also be because they tend to run in similar circles and so setting up something or starting a relationship becomes a lot easier.
Here are ten Nigerian celebrities who opted to get married to other Nigerian celebrities. Some of these are lesser known and may come as a surprise to some.
