Second Wives of Nollywood: Mercy Aigbe, 3 other Actresses Who Got Married as second wives (PHOTOS)


The dating scene in Nigeria isn’t exactly encouraging but it’s even harder for those who find themselves in the limelight.

Those in the entertainment industry have come out on occasions to make jokes about how they all recycle lovers among themselves due to an unexplained shortage of partners.


It gets even more difficult for women in the industry as some of them often find themselves playing second fiddle to married men.

Interestingly, playing on the side isn’t always enough for these superstars as they often end up ‘snatching’ the man completely from his family.

Some female entertainers have also argued in their defence that the men only come after them due to problems in their homes, marriages. And who are they to reject a man when there’s a shortage of sorts?

We a look at some Nollywood actresses who have raised eyebrows due to their choice of husbands. Check them out below:
