Bestie Goals: 5 of The Cutest Industry Friendships

If there is anything we can all see eye to eye on as humans, it is that we all need someone in our corner. We all crave someone we can share our lives with, wins, losses and everything in between. And although for most people, the answer is a romantic relationship with the opposite sex, for some, it is a good friendship. Not many things compare to a good friendship, especially one that sees both parties glowing in their individual lives and careers. Within the Nigerian entertainment scene, a few friendships have stood the test of time. Here are five of the cutest celebrity friendships to celebrate International Friendship Day.

1. Enioluwa and Hilda

Since announcing herself on the world stage courtesy of her globally televised Guinness World Record endeavour, Hilda Bassey has been frequently seen with beauty and fashion influencer, Enioluwa Adeoluwa. Their friendship has caught the attention of fans online, most of whom are envious of Hilda for having a friend in Eni, especially through her rise to stardom.

2. Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme

Perhaps the most obviously befitting friendship on this list, Aki and Pawpaw, as they are widely addressed, have been consistently involved in each other’s lives since they both got their Nollywood breakthrough, perpetually acting as brothers-in-mischief. Although they drifted apart from starring in the same projects, they have maintained a friendship away from the camera.

3. Basketmouth and Buchi

Ace comedians, Basketmouth and Buchi, have nurtured one of the long-lasting friendships in the comedy industry to date (alongside Basketmouth and Bovi). The duo can be seen on each other’s social media fooling around or on comedy tours together, performing at each other’s specials.

4. Waje and Omawumi

The most sonically gifted friendship on the list, Waje and Omawumi’s relationship in the industry go as far back as the 2000s, the era they both got their breakthrough. Almost two decades later, the close-knit sorority is still soaring as the RnB duo have consistently shown up for each other through the years.

5. Akah and Bolanle

Besties Akah Nnani and Bolanle Olukanni both own and co-host a podcast called The BFF Show, where they talk about friendships. A friendship that is easy on the eyes, Akah and Bolanle’s energies balance each other out whenever any of their interactions surface online. In her birthday wishes for Akah, Bolanle captioned on her Instagram, “Happy birthday to the brother I never had. I appreciate our friendship, Akah—the laughter and honesty is cherished.”
