Joseph Yobo & Uche Iwuji: Before Yobo became an-almost permanent fixture on the Super Eagles bench and back when Uche Iwuji still had a career, the pair were as tight as Ini Edo's lace wigs. Their on-again/off-again type relationship notwithstanding, the couple were often spotted at clubs on a night out in town. Eventually, they succumbed to gravity and went their separate ways.
Linda Ikeji & Dan Foster: Linda Ikeji and Dan Foster may make headlines for different reasons now but once upon a time, this pair were as solid as Davido's gold chains. If our diggings and memory serves us right, the pair dated sometime around 2006/2007 and it was quite the high-profile relationship. We're talking red carpet events, Lagos high society parties, the works.
Stephanie Okereke-Idahosa & Chikelue Iloanusi: Once upon a time, before the fairy tale wedding in Paris and everything else after, Stephanie was the chair lady of WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends of Footballers Association), Nigerian chapter. The Nollywood actress didn't just date, but was engaged and traditionally married to former Super Eagles player, Chikelue Iloanusi and the two enjoyed a hot 'n' heavy relationship.
Ebube & KC: Now this pair have more history than an archaeological dig site. The two were on and off over the years and even got engaged at some point. But in 2010, they went off el permanente as KC got married and Ebube became a fixture on the social scene. Sources alleged that the pair may have come back together as they had been spotted together severally, but KC later denied the reports.

Jim Iyke & Steph-Nora Okere: Jim oh Jim, who survives a relationship with the tornado called Jim Iyke? Nadia Buari seems to be though...but we digress. Now the Jim/Steph-Nora hook-up would have probably slipped our radar if Steph herself didn't draw our attention to it. In an interview with Encomium magazine in April 2013, Steph admitted that she had infact dated Jim and shock of shocks, she was still in love with him!
Iyanya & Yvonne 'Vixen' Ekwere: In the days before Iyanya sold his R&B soul to the god of Kukere, and when Vixen was still the queen of the red carpet, the duo found love in a not-so-broken place. Unfortunately, this fizzled out faster than the etighi dance. Iyanya went on to lust after Yvonne Nelson's waist and Vixen, well she went on to develop a male alter ego - what a man can do....
Cobhams Asuquo & Lala Akindoju: Long before there was Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz, there was Lala and Cobhams. They were a match made in music heaven with Lala's golden voice and Cobhams' mastery of music. We're talking red carpet events, attending church services hand-in-hand, Lala accepting awards on behalf of Cobhams...it was as hot 'n' heavy as you could get. Unfortunately, things fizzled out amidst speculations of one party's family not being in full support of the union.
