The music industry was dominated by the adventures of the former Psquare brothers who thronged different parts of the world in what many have described as an unhealthy competition over who will succeed more.
Davido and Chioma’s love story also overtook other private issues of celebrities especially with his release of “Assurance”. In the latter parts of the year, Davido in many ways proved his loyalty to Chioma thereby heightening indications that they may tie the knot in 2020.
In the Nollywood industry, certain trends were observable such as attacks and death of some prominent Nollywood stars.
The celebrity marriages that took place in 2010 were overshadowed by actress Regina Daniel’s controversial marriage to billionaire Ned Nwoko because of the wide age difference between them.
But 2020, may witness some monumental shifts in the entertainment industry. Many people expect that the relevant state authorities may clamp down on the notorious cross-dressed Bobrisky who was nearly arrested in 2019.
His arrest may also be followed by the travels of Naira Marley and other unconventional celebrities who appear to be a torn in the social fabric of Nigeria.
