Genny, as she is fondly called, is one of the princesses of the movie industry in Nigeria that many fans would be happy to see finally married this year. She has severally been romantically linked with many men within and outside the industry. The list of reported romance with top guys in Nollywood is almost endless. The height of it was when she was reported to be lubricating then with the sitting number two man of the country during the reign of Baba Iyabo. What is keeping this 32- year-old and mother of one, screen goddess waiting is still a mystery to her fans. Will 2012 be the lucky year for Genny? All fingers are crossed.
For Rita Dominic, not much of her being romantically linked with colleagues has been reported except for the Nigerian fine Nollywood actor that loves to Americanise his talks. This high-heel shoe lover is really happy with her present status. When she was recently asked by a reporter on when she would be getting married, she simply told the reporter to do that for her. It’s very certain that anytime news get to the public that this well over 30 years old light skinned actress is getting married, it would make headlines of many papers and bloggers. Fans only hope 2012 doesn’t just pass by without a ring on the fourth finger of her left hand
Funke Akindele has been in the game for a long time now, but was thrown into limelight around late first decade of the new millennium through her blockbusting flick, Jenifa. She has since then moved into the A-list category of her section of the profession. Jenifa, as she is fondly called by fans, is in her late 30s and is still very much single. Her love life is mostly not of the Romeo and Juliet type as we reliably learnt that she loves enjoying herself thoroughly. Before now, she has been reportedly linked with seeing the married Femi Adebayo (Jelili) to the extent of almost breaking up his marriage. She is one of those actresses fans would be happy to see get married in 2012. Will the bell toll?
One of the actresses that would be expected by fans to walk down the aisle is surely going to be Uche Jombo. Her 10 years romance with Super Eagles player, Ikechukwu Uche, who she has denied of ever having any romantic feelings for or ties to, was recently reported to have hit the rocks. Though no reason has been given for its failure, feelers however, have it that that event made it impossible for Uche to tie the knot with Ikechukwu in2011. What her fans would be happy about is seeing their role model finally geting someone to say ‘Do’ to in 2012.
For this Kanekalon and LG brands ambassador, getting tied to a man is not on her mind as we were hinted by a close source. After crashing out in her former marriage, she is taking her time to get into being a man’s wife. She is also enjoying the fun her jara job is giving her. She has been linked to some men in the past, especially with some in the presidency, which pitched her against another bigwig in the business. This Imo State 2002 runner-up of Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria has since 2007 after three years of marriage, when she officially dissolved her marriage to former fringed Super Eagles player, Chikelue Iloenuosi, been without a steady man as a husband. Will 2012 change her status?
For Queen, her innocent look is really working for her in the industry. When the bad girls of the industry are called, she is surely not going to be among the number for now. She recently won Scandal Free Actress of the Year, after staying in the industry since 2004 without any scandal attributed to her. But what is surprising to the fans of this Sociology and Anthropology graduate of Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka is the fact that she is till not married. When recently asked about her boyfriend, she said she was single but not searching. Some of her fans have wondered when this gentle and good girl of Nollywood would get married. When would the right time, as they always say, come? 2012?

Her romance with 2 Face produced Isabella. What is still making Annie’s friends and fans wonder is the fact that Annie fights any woman wond that dares come close to 2 Face. Some have asked if Annie still thinks she has a future with Tu Baba, after having five children with three different women. Some close associates of Annie said that what is baffling them is the fact that Annie doesn’t want to open the security tight and locked the door of her heart to any other man except the father of her daughter, three years old Isabella. The prayer of her friends and fans is for them to see 2012 change for this actress by be coming a wife.
