People get so caught up in work most times that they forget to make human interactions geared towards marriage and long term goals sometimes.
But imagine how cool it was if you could be at work and still meet the love of your life and live happily ever after. Seems like a fairy tale. But it actually isn’t.
Nigerian actors, just like their foreign contemporaries have met on set and everything good has blossomed from that relationship. Here are a few work relationships that have led to marriage:
1. Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro
Gbenro and Osas were both cast members on popular Africa Magic TV show, Tinsel. They got engaged in 2014. Gbenro played the role of Soji and Osas was Adanna on the show. They got married almost a year later in the United States.
2. Gloria Anozie and Norbert Young
In an interview conducted by Vanguard, Gloria Anozie attributed her marriage to the fact that she was seeing her husband very often. The duo got married in 2002 and still waxing strong till date.
3. Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite
Tinsel apparently is such a love nest because Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite also met on the show. They played the roles of Kwame Mensah and Telema Duke respectively. They got married in 2015.
4. Isaac and Nneka Moses
Isaac and Nneka Moses met on the set of a movie in 1996 and have looked so damn good on each other ever since. They look alike all the time we see them on their culture and tourism show, Goge Africa.
5. Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva
No way we would have left the real relationship goals that Olu and Joke give us all the time. Olu met his beautiful wife at the casting of a Wole Soyinka novel – Jero’s Metamorphosis at the National Theatre and they’ve been living happily ever after since then.
6. Iyke Okechukwu and Florence Uwaleke
The first Tinsel wedding took place between Iyke who played Chuks Obi and Florence who played Ene. They got married in April 2013 and have been together since then.

8. Iretiola and Patrick Doyle
