5 things Yoruba Nollywood actresses have in common that will blow your mind

Toyin Aimakhu and Mercy Aigbe might not be seeing eye to eye at the moment but these beautiful women have a number of things in common.

Few hours after the incident, Aigbe took to Instagram to insinuate that Abraham's comments was a publicity stunt for her new movie, "Ghost and the Tout."

She eventually deleted the post from her page and days later, both actresses unfollowed each other on Instagram.

Pulse has put together a list of what these beautiful ladies have in common, despite this new rift.

Check them out:

1. They are both Edo beauties

This has got to be the closest similarity between Mercy Aigbe and Toyin Aimakhu a lot of people might not know. They are both from Edo state in south-south Nigeria.

Yes, guys, they are not Yoruba ladies, they are from the Niger-Delta with Mercy Aigbe from the Bini speaking tribe of Edo state, while Toyin Aimakhu is from the Northern part of the state, which is generally called the 'Afemai.'

2. Their marriages never worked

When you talk about celebrities whose marriages didn't work out in the entertainment industry, two celebrities whose names readily come to mind are Toyin Aimakhu and Mercy Aigbe. Aigbe had one of the most controversial marriage scandals in 2017, which till date still has the actress and her estranged husband,

For Toyin Aimakhu, her failed marriage to actor, Adeniyi Johnson broke the Internet a few years ago and since then they have gone back and forth on who was responsible for the collapse of the marriage. However, Toyin has moved on and so has Adeniyi as they are both engaged to get married soon. Toyin recently announced her engagement by showing off her beautiful rock engagement ring.

3. They have a thing for Yoruba men

Lol! and Aimakhu, when it comes to their choice of men, have something in common: Yoruba men. Let's break it down for you guys, Toyin was once married to a cute looking Yoruba guy, Adeniyi Johnson, who is also an actor.

Aigbe, even though she didn't settle for an actor like Aimakhu, was once married to a businessman, LanreGentry, who is of the Yoruba descent. They both had a beautiful marriage until things went south.

4. Talented movie stars

Even though these ladies are very controversial, we cannot ignore the fact that they are quite talented as actors. Over the last decade, we have seen Aimakhu and Aigbe grow in their career. The list of entertaining movies featuring  these beautiful a

They are also among the few indigenous actors, who have successfully broken into the mainstream  Nollywood industry.  In a span of two years, Aimakhu has produced two commercially successful comedy movies, "Alakada Reloaded" and "The Ghost and the Tout."

5. Product of the same higher institution

Digging deep into the similarities between these two women, we found out that they both attended the same higher institution, The Polytechnic, Ibadan. This is just a coincidence, but it goes to show that we live in a very small world.

While Toyin Aimakhu bagged a Higher National Diploma in Marketing for the institution, Mercy Aigbe received an Ordinary National Diploma in Financial Studies from the same institution.
