In life, things don’t go as planned and those things include human relationships. People outgrow relationships or find themselves in situations that make them jeopardize what they both share but there is room for reconciliation at a later time when both parties are in better positions to have a go at it again or just stay friends.
In this article, we will talk about Nigerian Celebrities who went back to their ex years or reconciled with them after they broke up.
Let’s have at it below:
1 Bolanle Ninalowo
Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo’s love for his wife Bunmi Ninalowo began like a whirlwind. The pair moved in together two weeks after meeting but things went south a few years after Bunmi traveled to the United States with Bolalnle Ninalowo who was based there at the time.
In 2019 confirmed that he was separated from his wife after 12 years of being together. Not long after his stardom in Nollywood, the actor reportedly made up with Bunmi after getting tired of many advances from women who thought he was a single hotshot in the movie industry.
In an interview with Genevieve magazine, Ninalowo disclosed how he took his wife to the United States of America and married her on paper hoping that he will officially marry her sometime later but things didn’t go according to plans.

He said in 2017, “I am separated from the mother of my kids. I have an 11-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy from her and they live in Atlanta. “We met here in Nigeria when I visited 12 years ago. I took her, with me, to the States and filed for her (married her on paper) with the hope to someday getting married officially, but things took the wrong turn. So, for now, I am married to my hustle.”
But things took a good turn in 2020 when the actor on his 40th birthday posted on Instagram that it would be his first birthday to be celebrated with his family in 10years. Sharing a short video of himself and his wife, Ninalowo wrote ;
“The Dream came true 🙏 Am gonna be spending my 40th birthday with my wife & kids 😇🙏 My first in 10years!!! You think you know!! Naaaaaaaa 😂 Omode o mo ogun, o pe le foh!!! Thank God for Grace 🙏 Conqueror 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿 May7baby TaurausKing”
Bolanle and Bunmi have two grown-up kids, Aliyah and Morakinyo together and never stop gushing about each other on social media.
2. Faithia Balogun And Saidi Balogun
Nollywood actors, Saidi Balogun and Faithia Williams got married on September 7, 2000, in an elaborate ceremony in Lagos. It was the second marriage for Saidi and the first for Faithia. All look fine and dandy in The marriage produced 2 kids until the pair suddenly ended things in 2006.
In 2014, it was resurfaced that Fathia and Saheed were getting back together. Faithia dispelled these rumours, stating in one of her interviews that, technically, she was still Saidi’s wife since they hadn’t completed their divorce proceedings. Nevertheless, Saheed came out and debunked them once and for all, which destroyed any chances of them getting back together.
Saidi said: There is absolutely no truth in it; we are not back together and have not in any way discussed anything of such. It has not crossed my mind and I am sure she is also too busy to be thinking of something that idle”
3. Chacha Eke And Austin Fanni Ikechukwu
One of the biggest celebrity news in 2020 was the divorce saga between actress, Chacha Eke, and her husband Austin Fanni Ikechukwu.
In an emotional video on Instagram, the actress announced that she is walking away from her marriage of 7-years. She said in the now-deleted video:
”You will say I am crazy but I am not. This video is to let the world know that I am done with the marriage. I don’t have a lot to prove that I am done with him but I am done. I’m done. I am leaving with my life finally. I can’t say a lot now. You will hear my story’.
After a series of back and forth and media reports of Chacha being mentally troubled, the divorce rumours were quelled and the couple got back together, welcoming a child soon after.
4. Don Jazzy And Michelle Jackson
Ace Nigerian producer and label boss, Micheal Ajere, otherwise known as Don Jazzy reunited with the wife of his youth earlier today and it kept the media abuzz. Reports from different quarters have it that the former couple is on the path of getting back together after they broke up over 20years ago.
Don Jazzy had revealed that his first shot at marriage failed because he chose his career over his partner. The UK-based model, Jackson also corroborated the Mavin boss’s claim in an interview with Naija FM.
“He just needed to go and be himself and go and do his music. Music got in the way of the relationship. We were very young as well,” Michelle said.
She added, “If I were in the same situation now, it might have been very different.”
Her comments give enough pointers to the fact that a reunion is in the offing.
