One thing Nollywood gets right is the romantic pairings, from Ramsey Nouah and Genevieve, to Jim Iyke and Rita Dominic, we’ve always lived vicariously through their onscreen love. These new Nollywood couples are no different.

Okey Uzoeshi and Bisola Aiyeola

It might be the banter or the intense looks after they’ve done the silliest things. We don’t know what it is, but these two have the chemistry of an older, married Nigerian couple, and we love to see it.

Uzor Arukwe and Ijeoma Grace-Agu

In the hierarchy of Nollywood work husbands and wives, after the old nolly baes and beaus take their spots, these two are next in line. Doesn’t matter what storyline or world their characters are placed in. They always have the most insane chemistry.

Kunle Remi and Bimbo Ademoye

Do you and your co-star really have great chemistry if everyone and their daddy doesn’t think you re dating? These two have such a believable relationship on-screen, people think they’re real off-screen. Producers have decided they won’t rest until they cast them together in everything. We’re here for it.

Nengi Adoki and Baaj Adebule

These two have such great chemistry everyone thinks they’re dating in real life. Doesn’t matter how many times they refute it, there’ll always be a little sliver of doubt in everyone’s mind. They’re just that good together.
