Love and colour have the letters ‘O’ and ‘L’ in common, and there is no segregation when these two words want to work together. The ratio of inter-racial marriages in recent times double the frequency as at two decades ago. Most Nigerians (male and female) are now getting more comfortable exchanging vows with white skins, although not all of these marriages are without negative intentions. A couple of Nigerian celebrities have given inter-racial marriage a try and we’ve noticed they are not doing bad at it. Finding love in strange lands is fast becoming a trend. This shows it is not about the container but the content that matters, so skin colour is certainly the least criteria to look out for when picking a spouse. Meet these only Nigerian celebs whose husbands are white.
1. Ufuoma Ejenobor McDermott
Gorgeous ebony Nollywood actress Ufuoma Ejenobor is happily married to her whitey, Steve McDermott. The Delta state born actress and former beauty queen met her European husband through his friend while she was filming ‘Everything It Takes’ for Wale Adenuga. They got acquainted, started feeling each other’s company and finally tied the knot in 2010. In 2012, the couple welcomed their first child, Isio Jared McDermott and their second in 2015.
2. Uche Jombo
Just when fans of the bold and beautiful actress were beginning to give up on her ever getting married, Uche sneaked away to northeastern Caribbean to wed her American-Puerto Rican born husband, Kenny Rodriguez. The Abia state born actress recently welcomed her first baby with her husband in May 2015, three years after their wedding. Kenny says he met Uche through his close Nigerian friend for business purposes, but when he discovered her passion and drive for movies he was open to learn from her and that led them into a love nest. He says he is glad Uche chose him.
3. Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi
Popular Nigerian international supermodel and once Face of Africa, Oluchi Onweagba, got married to her Italian husband, Luca Orlandi in 2005. Her husband is a popular Italian fashion photographer and they have two sons together. The young ambitious lady has grown from a model, to a wife, mother and owner of model Africa in South Africa.
It is difficult to believe that the raunchy and controversial singer, Caroline Sam, popularly known as Maheeda, is married. But it is believable to know she married a white man, because an African does not have the tendency to cope with a wife who loves posting nude pictures of herself online. Maheeda wedded her Dutch husband, Robert in 2012, and he moved her and her teenage daughter to the Netherlands where they live happily ever after.
5. Anita Hogan
Former Nollywood actress and last woman standing of the Guilder Ultimate, Anita Hogan has been missing in action for a long time now. She has been busy taking care of her Dutch husband, Ted Mak, and their two cute sons. They got married in October 2006 and from their recent picture updates, they seem to be having a happy relationship.
6. Regina Askia
Regina married American Rudolf Williams and they are blessed with two children, aside her previous ones and his too. The ex beauty Queen (Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria 1988) relocated to the US with her husband and is no more into acting but medicine. Regina is now a practicing nurse in the United States.
7. Chioma Toplis
Nollywood actress Chioma is married to Andrew Toplis, a UK Engineer. Sometime in 2013, there was a debate on whether her white-man husband exists or not since no one knew what he looked like. She silenced everyone by suddenly releasing photos of her husband along with their three children.
8. Ashionye Ugboh-Raccah
MIA singer and Nollywood actress, Ashionye Ugboh, met her husband Carl Raccah in Lagos in 2001. They became friends for a long time and finally exchanged vows in August 2009. The couple are enjoying their marriage and have a cute son together to add to their bundle of blessings.
