On Sunday, Dr. Uzo Iweala tied the knot with his partner Lotte Elsa, in Heidelberg, Germany.
A video from the wedding ceremony of Dr. Uzo Iweala and his bride has emerged, showcasing the Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, shining with her dance skills at the wedding celebration of her eldest son Dr. Uzo.
In the video, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was seen joyfully dancing to a variety of Nigerian music alongside her new daughter-in-law.
The groom’s aunt Njide Udochi, shared videos from the event on her Facebook page on that same day of the event.
She wrote in part, “As Nigerians and members of the Igbo community, we consider a marriage incomplete until we commemorate our traditional marriage customs, known as Igba Nkwu Nwanyi. Hence, in Heidelberg, Germany, we celebrated their union.
The support of a community is vital, and Uzo and Lotte were blessed to have their community present to honor and rejoice in their love. Another day of celebrating love, honoring traditions, and uniting as a community. We are immensely grateful to all our extended family and friends who traveled from various parts of the world to honor our family and uphold our traditions today.
Congratulations to the entire Iweala family and Ndi Umuda Isingwu, as well as the Goos family of Heidelberg, Germany. To our newlyweds, Uzodinma Iweala and Lotte Elsa, we wish you an enduring, genuine happiness together. We love you both!”
