February 14 has become the universally accepted day for couples to celebrate their love even though we can all agree that love should be shown every day.
The Nigerian entertainment industry has been blessed with couples who prove that love indeed exists, especially in showbiz. This is worthy of celebration considering the high rate of separation that many stars seem to face.
Sometimes, these celebrity couples do not only show their love on social media, they also express it in their craft. There have been cases whereby both husband and wife appear in the same movie or music video, thereby strengthening the bond they have for each other.
Seeing as Valentine is fast approaching, Legit.ng has decided to shine the spotlight on some Nigerian celebrity couples who have appeared on screen projects together.
