are still single. Are men scared?
Genevieve Nnaji

celebrated her 37th year birthday today, May 3. Star actress,
Genevieve Nnaji has been romantically linked with every man including
sensational act, DBanj. Not even her producer friend, Ishaya Bako, the
director of her latest movie, ‘Road to Yesterday,’ was spared of these unending
rumours of Genevieve’s dates.  She possesses a face and body
that not only sell movies, but make the opposite drool at any appearance.

Indeed, Genevieve Nnaji rates as one of Africa’s most desirable actresses. But where is her
Mr. Right? Many men complain of Genny’s arrogance—she is finicky about her man.
When she relocated to Abuja two years ago, everyone thought she would find
succour there and get married to a rich politician but it is still a surprise
that there are no signs that she is heading for the altar anytime soon.

Rita Dominic

woman by now.
is very single. Though rumoured to be dating some guys including actor Femi
Jacobs, why is Rita not married? This celebrated actress has shrouded her love
life secretly. One of  the reasons why she is single is that she is married to her job and doesn’t want to be hindered by the challenges of marriage. It is only hoped that she hooks up with a husband this year.

Yoruba and English movie industry
. But months later, the marriage between Funke and Kehinde Almaroof crumbled

have friends who feel that they have got to a certain age and they are not
taken. These days, there are 30 women to a man. There is no pressure on me for
