Once Upon A Time These Celebs Were Friends
Friendships, unfortunately, have a limited lifespan. Sometimes we disagree with our day one buddies, and other times they aren't who you thought they were.

Celebrities have said farewell to long-term friends and cut ties with them. Some of our celebrities had public quarrels, while others simply stopped speaking to one another. In case you missed it, here are a few celebrity friendships that have come to an end:



Genevieve Nnaji And Omotola Jalade


These two beautiful ladies who have been in Nollywood for decades have been sworn enemies for a while and we do not understand why.

Genevieve is a seasoned actor who has taken up a director role in the film industry. She directed the movie Lion Heart, which was the first Nigerian movie to be streamed on Netflix. This girl has no time for games.

Omotola is also a veteran in Nollywood and has featured in over 300 films. She is also the first African who has received 1 million likes on Facebook. You better believe that Omotola is a big deal in these streets.


The reason for their enmity is still unknown and Nigerians only wish that they would get along. They are hardly seen together.

Imagine a movie featuring the two queens of Nollywood. It would be epic, right?

Alex Ekubo and Uti Nwachukwu


This duo was once so tight that people thought they were actual brothers. They were always seen together.

They are both talented actors who have proved their way to the top. Alex who is also a model is always featured as prince charming in Nollywood films. The same also stands for his ex-friend Uti who is also Mr. Handsome. He is the winner of BBNija season five and also a Tv personality.

Once news broke out that they were no longer friends it was heartbreaking to their fans. We still don't know why they are not best friends anymore but it is speculated that Alex betrayed Uti.

What handsome friends they were!


Tonto Dikeh and Toyin Lawani


Toyin who is a famous fashion designer and owner of Tiannah's Empire, was once Tonto’s best friend but is now her enemy. It is rumored that Toyin once snatched Tonto’s boyfriend and since then they have not been able to see eye to eye.

Tonto Dikeh is a seasoned actress whom we don't get to see on Tv nowadays. We are not sure if she will go back on the screen but we know for a fact that she has become a successful social media influencer. 

There were a lot of speculations surrounding their breakup that emerged. It was alleged Tonto had credited Toyin’s work to her other friend Jeremiah Ogbodo who is also a fashion designer. 

Toyin was Tonto's stylist, and instead of Tonto giving credit to her then-best friend, she chose to betray her and give it to someone else. Toyin wanted to take legal action against the individual who stole her work, but Tonto did not seem bothered by the threat.

Nigerians wish the ex-friends would come out and clear the air on what exactly happened between them and make-up.

Regina who was at the time undecided distanced herself away from Mercy after she felt that her advice was not very good.

Since then their friendship has deteriorated and the two popular actresses have not been seen together. Regina Daniels used to be Mercy Johnson's understudy throughout her acting career.
