Alexandria Ikomoni: They were a great couple. They’re great. 

Alexandria Ikomoni: No matter how you feel politically, they are a great couple. That’s Black excellence. And they’re doing a lot of great things. More power to them. I really love what they do. 

Alexandria Ikomoni: If I go with someone else,  I’m going to say Ciara and Russell Wilson, of course. 

Dozie Ezemma: They are a great pick. 

Alexandria Ikomoni: You know, he owns a space in the sports world. We know Ciara in the music industry. She’s gorgeous. Everything.

Alexandria Ikomoni: And you know that Ciara prayer. The people still want that till this day. They are couple goals for a lot of people. 

Alexandria Ikomoni: So those are my three. 

Dozie Ezemma: All right. You did pick three really good ones.

Dozie Ezemma: So my top three power couples, right? Mm hmm. I’m gonna have to start off with Magic Johnson and Cookie.

Dozie Ezemma: That man, Magic Johnson, owns everything. He’s a very successful businessman, and his wife is supporting him. They are a great couple together.

Dozie Ezemma: No. 2, I’m going with Steph and Ayesha.

Dozie Ezemma: You can’t miss with them. She has a whole cookbook and cookware line. You know what Steph is doing in the game of basketball.

Dozie Ezemma: Last but not least, I’m going with Lebron and Savannah.

Dozie Ezemma: They’ve been in love since high school. Like they are a power couple.

Dozie Ezemma: LeBron just scored the most points in NBA history. Like he’s going to go down as the greatest of all time. So for sure, that’s my top three.

Alexandria Ikomoni: Yeah, I remember seeing them do like a little handshake that they have with each other. They’re so cute.
