Meet Nkiru Sylvanus’s Husband, Riches Sammy


Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus found love again after many years of being single as a result of a failed marriage.

The former Special Adviser on Public Affairs to Rochas Okorocha walked down the aisle with her beau last week in a star studded wedding which took place in Enugu State.

Her husband, Riches Sammy is also an actor, though based abroad, Japan to be precise.


They have been an item for about five years and the actress has been fronting for his business in Nigeria. Sammy is a YouTuber, actor and entrepreneur. He runs a vibrant YouTube channel and also has his hands in the night life business. The actor has featured in many action related movies about crime and depression in Japanese Television dramas and movies.

Some of the movies he has acted in include, ‘Dance with the Police’, ‘Death is an End’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’. His interest in night life business led to the birth of a Japanese joint, H2 International Bar and Restaurants. The spot offers football viewings, karaoke and clubbing experiences to its clients. He replicated the business in Enugu State where the actress fronts for him as the brand ambassador of the business and influencer.

Known as 7th Planet International Ltd, a restaurant and bar located in a housing estate in Enugu State. The center also doubles as an amusement park and game center. The building house a unisex salon and also offers live entertainment.

Sammy is also a sports lover. He played for the England team in the Japan Rugby World Cup TV Promo in 2019.

This is not the first time that the actress would be getting married. Sylvanus was once married to Stanley Duru, the ex-husband of her colleague, Oge Okoye. They got married in 2014 but the marriage didn’t stand the test of time before it packed up in 2019.

Her marriage created a rift between herself and her fellow actress, Okoye.
