BBNaija’s Bella and Big Sheggz are getting the heat on social media. During an Instagram live session on Tuesday, November 28, Bella said only brands with deep pockets can afford her and Sheggz together as a pair. This comment didn’t land well on the internet, with some people suggesting they’re not the power couple they think they are.

The back-and-forth got us thinking about some of our Nollywood faves who’d have “run the world” if they’d ended up as life partners.

You had to be there in the early 2000s to see the chokehold this pair had on Nigerians with movies like My Love, Love Boat, Power of Love, Battle Line and Honey. Their union would rival all the first couples of Aso Rock.

Just imagine this couple at the helm of Nigeria’s affairs. They only need to give one of their iconic facial expressions, and world leaders would do our bidding.

Picture this: They show up at a crowded government office with no security. Edochie in his Isiagu, and Clarion with those oversized sunglasses so dark you can see your reflection in them. Are you getting the picture, or should I continue?

As individuals, they have an insane class and the pizzaz that holds everyone to ransom when they step into the room. Now, think of the effect when that’s combined. Beyonce and Jay might have to resign.

These ones will bend anybody into submission with juju. You will bow for the result whether you like it or not.
