Her acting career also got a lift as she starred in several movies. Isime is our hottest female celebrity of the year.
2. Saskay (Reality TV star)
Every season of Big Brother Naija, Nigeria's most popular reality TV show, new stars are born and this year's season wasn't left out with the emergence of Saskay.

6. Seyi Shay (Musician)
Let's be honest with ourselves, the reason the music talent show 'Nigeria Idols' trended and got Nigerians watching was because of one of the judges, Seyi Shay.
Her appearance as the blunt judge on the show got her trending for months on social media and improved the show’s ratings.
Aside from cashing out as a judge from the show, the music star has continued to remain one of the sexiest celebrities in town. She has not for once failed to share her racy photos on Instagram.
