Throw Back…Exhausting The Acting Spinsters List
THE emails have not stopping popping up. Enquiries, mostly from lustful fans on how they can reach some of the acting celebrities in the singles club that were profiled on this page last week. ‘’I want her for an everlasting relationship and I assure you that she will enjoy me’’ a fan declared. A fan who wrote in from Kano specifically asked for an actress that was not profiled last week but who sits comfortably on the singles ladder. “I can do anything to have her answer my name as husband”, he stated. So here is the last part of this diet of this series on their excellencies- a take on those considered to be sitting pretty well on the singles list.
Known more for her near nude poses than her acting skills, the alumnus of the University of Nigeria and University of Lagos respectively has since she joined Nollywood, always been in the news, but mostly for the wrong reasons. Her very obvious attempt to force observers (with her penchant for baring it all) to declare her one of the sexiest actresses of Nollywood has earned her a lot of attention from the gossip press and the public. Although she has not been clearly linked with anyone in recent time apart from the tale that she has found warmth in the arms of a popular comedian from the middle belt, not even those who claim to be close to the accountancy graduate, can tell where she stands as regards changing her status.
The Enugu-born actress and model is reportedly engrossed in pushing her debut album out into public space. She stated that much in a recent interview. She also disclosed there too that though she has received a number of proposals from men who are not disturbed by her bubbly personality, marriage will come when it come. Put differently, Cossy is not in a hurry to quit the singles club.
Beautiful, tall and rich, Lillian Bach is still very single. Though a single mother, it doesn’t look as if the Nollywood mullato is up
for grabs. Much of what was inked about the actress of dual nationality in recent time had nothing to do with her acting abilities. They bordered largely on her estranged relationships. Recent report about the actress indicates that she has reconciled with her long standing friend, a notable voice over. To many, Lilian’s decision to return to her voice over artiste lover may mean that ‘she prefers the taste of old wine to freshly brewed wine’. But will the old wine fill her enough for her to want to be pulled out of the singles club? Only time will tell.
This REEL, THEMA and Zuma Film Festival award winning actress and graduate of theatre arts of the University of Ibadan is by far one of the most revered actresses in the Nigerian home video culture dubbed Nollywood. Bimbo is deep as an actress and she possesses a great charisma that is felt on screen. But while her fans can vouch for her acting abilities, they say they cannot tell whether her status has changed. But the star of Out of Bounds, that Richard Mofe Damijo movie that gave her, her first major acting crest is still very much single. She inferred in a recent interview that she was still single and not searching and would not be pressured into ‘settling down for the fun of it’.
A good mixer and very personable, the acting bomb as a critic has always chosen to describe her, has had her own fair share of linkages with all manner of people. There was a time when all that was written about Bimbo outside her acting runs was her alleged relationship with a Lagos socialite. Later, she was linked with an Afrobeat crooner and much later a popular stage actor who made money as the face of one of the products of a leading telecommunication company. Friendly and down to earth, a source disclosed that Bimbo who is born to parents who are devout Muslims may be on her way out of the club of singles if pressures from her parents who is to be considered.
Star actress Rita Dominic has nothing against the marriage institution at least she has said that countlessly but it doesn’t look as though marriage is on the ready wish list the acting princess. The Imo state born actress doesn’t appear as one who will be ready to reduce by one this year, the names on the list of the single ladies in Nollywood. But there have been countless insinuations about her status.
It was rumoured some time past that she had quietly settled down with a fellow who works for a Lagos based oil company. But Rita has always maintained that even though she respects marriage as an institution, it was not something she wants to hurry into. ‘When the time comes, everyone will hear about it. It’s just not time yet’ she once told this reporter.
Ebube is a prominent member of the singles club. But for a misunderstanding between her and her footballer fiancée, which she blamed on undue interference by the yellow press, delectable Ebube would have longed bade farewell to her counterparts in the singles club. She had for a long time made up her mind to settle down but that dream crashed when the ex- Nigerian International who is a younger brother to another Ex-Nigerian international called the relationship off. She was later rumoured to have dated a singer who recently got married.
Since these two relationships packed up, Ebube has not told anyone that she has found a replacement and she has refused to even disclose whether or not she is in any ‘serious relationship’. Although she has severally been linked with a number of celebrities including a popular singer, nothing in the text of the interviews she has granted in recent time have suggested that she will walk down the aisles anytime soon. This leaves her for now, as a frontline member of the singles club.
The Other frontline members include: Empress Njamah, Tonto Dike, Alex Lopez, and Susan Peters
