Contrary To What Is Fast Becoming Popular Belief, There Are Fine Men From Edo


It’s no longer gist that, Edo State now has a new governor after eight years (two tenures) of having Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole at the helm of affairs.


But before results were announced, some people started to worry, not for fear of post-election violence, but for this…


Eventually, the Independent National Electoral Commission announced  Godwin Obaseki (aka G.O.) of the All Progressive Congress(APC) as winner of the elections.


… and the internet went wild, congratulatory messages and all.



My pure mind was still assuming the similarity was only party-related when I saw this:

Who else thinks the similarity has to do with their skin tone?

…then the lamentations



Shortly after, I saw a friend’s personal message on BBM which read thus:


but it was only a matter of time before someone asked.


I’m sure Abimbola is not the only one that is beginning to wonder, so I thought it nice to clear the air with this compilation of handsome men which to be honest were hard to find from Edo state. Note that this list is restricted to popular men.

IK Osakioduwa

Media personality who you probably know as host of Big Brother Africa and recently, his own show ‘Highlites With IK’ is without a doubt, a good looking man.


Dadaboy Ehiz

The MTV Base VJ, whose real name is Ehizojie Okoeguale is also popularly known as Slim and hails from Edo state, most likely the Esan-speaking part.


Peter Osaze Odemwingie

Footballer. ‘lai-skinned’. Father of 3. Fine boy.


Odion Jude Ighalo

Ighalo is a Watford FC player. His fine-boy mileage continues to increase, much like his rise from Ajegunle’s Maracana Stadium.


Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Even with his curly hair, the President of Believers’ Loveworld is without any doubt, a sight for sore eyes.



Remember “If you help me see Ego, make you tell am I don go, she no look me and so…” ? That’s Osayamen Nosa Donald.


Need I say more?

Oriri Osayomore

Son of popular music artiste, Osayomore Joseph and star of ‘Sisi Eko’ fame, Oriri is one good-looking brother… Jackson Five nostrils and all.


Mai Atafo

With his signature ‘abolo’ (clean shave) and thick-framed glasses, the Lagos-based designer whose full name is Ohimai Atafo is easy on the eyes… and he probably knows it.


Efex The Entertainer

Efex is a comedian whose real name is Efosa Iyamu. He was also a Special Assistant to Adams Oshiomhole while the latter was governor of the state.


With these few names, I hope I have been able to convince you that indeed, there are good looking men from Edo state. Otherwise, here’s what my dad said when I brought up the topic with him:

“An ugly woman is a blot on the fair face of creation; but as to the gentlemen, let them be solicitous to possess only strength and valour. Let their motto be:- ‘Hunt, shoot, and fight’. the rest is not worth a flip…”(Original quote is from Charlotte Bronte’s book, Jane Eyre).

In plain terms, a man does not need to be handsome. Feminists, not today please.
