Some of the Nigerian Female celebrities that are single parents are also those who are currently the most famous faces in Nollywood.
And today we shall be adding a topic on this matter to our Nigerian Celebrity Stories archive.
It is not easy living a life of single parenthood in Africa and Nigeria in particular.
Especially for a woman. And it doesn’t matter how rich or popular your person. The environment makes sure that it is a social position every Nigerian woman finds impossible to settle into.
But no matter the taboo signature to the whole situation, more and more Nigerian women are becoming the faces of that reality.
But our concern is with those women of high status via their trade or profession mainly in the entertainment arena.
These Nigerian Female Celebrities That Are Single Parents are like every other human being, in that they are also exposed to certain stigma and difficulties.
One of which is the whole sad story of being single despite all that they are blessed with as beautiful women.
One would have thought that that much fame could have at least landed a permanent man in their lives.
Maybe the package is still on its way.
Anyways we shall be compiling some names of female celebrities that fall into that category.
Some of which you might have heard about in recent Nigerian Celebrity News on issues of immorality and engaging in sexual relationship with a famous Nigerian singer who many Say, is way too younger than her.
Truth be told apart from that unconfirmed rumor of Waje and M.I dating.
I am yet to hear of any such relationship gist on this female singer who is a mother to beautiful daughter who is all grown up.
And her daughter is just so pretty that many perverts are already of the opinion that Emerald (her name) is already a complete threat to her mother’s sexual value in the market.
2. Genevieve Nnaji
Her baby girl is no longer a baby as she is now all grown up and is already a married woman.
Genevieve Nnaji gave birth to her daughter Theodora Chimebuka Nnaji at age 17.
As to who the father is, a mystery it remains.
Unlike her mother who is a constant reference point on many Nigerian Celebrity News, Theodora is almost unknown (facially) by many.
But here she is.
3. Tonto Dikeh
She was married to Churchill and ended that marriage with so much hate and malice that it came to a point where even her followers became her opposition in the matter.
The marriage made her a mother, which obviously she is happy about.
4. Tiwa Savage
Tiwa Savage is that name among our list of Nigerian Female Celebrities That Are Single Parents whose reputation is hanging on obvious threads of immorality.
That is if we are to go by the moral standards of Nigerians.
She was married to Teebillz. Their marriage suffered a terrible break up with both of them throwing shades left and right.
She was called out for infidelity by her ex husband who had at that time seriously contemplated suicide.
These days she is the topic of “old woman banging small boys”, a reference to her alleged relationship with wizkid.
She was blessed with a son from that broken marriage (Jamil). And has since stayed far from the marriage arena.
5. Shan George
She is one of the most famous names from the old era of Nollywood mentioned on this list of Nigerian Female celebrities that are single parents.
She is a mother of two sons from her first marriage.
She has suffered two marriage breakups already but is still a believer that one day she will meet her Mr. Right.
6. Fathia Balogun
She was formerly married to veteran Nollywood actor, Saheed Balogun. They have two kids together.
Like Shan George, her last marriage was the second that just couldn’t stand the test of time.
7. Bukky Wright
She is the one with the most failed marriages with an accounted 4 failed marriages and a rumoured 5th.
She is a single mother of two sons, Eniola and Gbenga.
8. Mercy Aigbe
She is a mother of two, from her marriage to Nigerian hotelier, Lanre Gentry.
Who she got separated from because of domestic violence.
She is currently living her best life, as it was recently rumored that she bought her new property for 200 million.
9. Lilian Esoro
This beauty is as single as it can get even though she just recently called it quit with TripleMG CEO Ubi Franklin who she got married to on 1 November 2015 and had a son for.
According to some, she was already a mother to two kids from a previous marriage before Ubi.
But since there is hardly any fact to that claim, I consider it false.
10. Kate Henshaw
She was married to Roderick James Nuttal. The couple was together for 12 years but the union shattered in 2011. The actress has a daughter, Gabrielle Nuttall with her ex-husband. Roderick Nuttal is the Managing Director of Ledrop Nigeria Ltd. The company is an agency for Jack Daniels and Piper Heidsieck Champagne. He has moved on with his life after their divorce and has remarried.
11. Anna Ebiere
Hers is a story of unrequited love as far as that emotion is concerned. She was never married to her baby’s daddy.
It is no longer news that Nigerian celebrity singer Flavour is a lover for beautiful women, especially celebrated models.
A fact that is evident when we look at his two baby mama’s who are both beauty queens.
She was crowned the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria by 2012 MBGN Queen Isabella Ayuk in 2013 and represented Nigeria at the 2013 Miss World pageant.
She should be the youngest mum on this list. She is now a single mother of a beautiful daughter and that is all thanks to Flavour.
12. Yvonne Jegede
This particular melanin beauty recently returned to the singles club, along with the living proof that she was once married.
Which is a baby boy!
Her failed marriage with Olakunle ‘Abounce’ Fawole lasted for one year.
13. Clarion Chukwura
She is the mother of music video director Clarence Peters.
These Nigerian Female Celebrities That Are Single Parents have all endured the long road of being single and alone as far as public projection is concerned.
But no way are they to be considered FAILURES
