Tiwa, Tonto And Toke. Similarities In The Marriages Of These Celebrities!

Celebrity marriages! What do they have in common? While a few celebrities (Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs, Tunde and Wunmi Obe) have beautiful marriages, a lot of celebrities marriages are in trouble.

Watching women go through such stress is actually heartbreaking. No woman, I repeat, no woman deserves to be treated like a piece of rag. Here are the similarities that exist among the marriages of these three celebrities. 1. Tonto dike's husband cheated on her, Roseline wa...
