When you think of a rare combination of beauty and brains, Eniola Ajao is one of the Nollywood actresses that fits the profile. This stunning actress has gradually taken the Nollywood (Yoruba) acting scene by storm and there is no recovery from this bundle of talent. One of the reasons she remains the most sought-after actress in the industry is the versatility with which she delivers her roles.

Moreover, she has never revealed any of the people she has dated in the past. She just speaks about her mystery man whenever she talks about her relationship. She has strived to keep her private life away from the scrutiny of the media and has done well at that.

On her alleged relationship with Odunlade, Eniola has reiterated in several interviews that the relationship between her and Odunlade is that of a boss and apprentice and nothing more. She shared that there are several caucuses in the movie industry and it is natural for actors to align with a particular group.
