A popular saying goes, “Love is beautiful, and anyone who finds a lover has found a good thing.”

Some celebrities, however, are not left out of this love affair. So far this year, celebrities, particularly those in their forties, have found love and committed their lives to it.

From the music to the film industry, older celebrities found the love of their lives and, surprisingly, took the risk of walking down the aisle with them.

So, let’s take a look at a few Nigerian celebrities who got married at the age of 40 in 2022;
