VIDEO: Okonjo-Iweala celebrates as son marries in Germany
A video has surfaced showing the Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, showing off her dance moves at the wedding ceremony of her first son, Dr. Uzo Iweala.
Iweala tied the knot with his partner, Lotte Elsa, on Sunday in Heidelberg, Germany.
Okonjo-Iweala, in the video, could be seen dancing to an array of Nigerian music with her new daughter-in-law.
Aunt to the groom, Njide Udochi, shared videos from the ceremony on her Facebook page on Sunday.
She partly wrote, “As Nigerians and Ndigbo, there is no marriage unless we as a community celebrate our traditional marriage rites, Igba Nkwu Nwanyi. So, in Heidelberg, Germany, we married our wife.
“It takes a village, and Uzo and Lotte had their village there to honour and celebrate them. Another day of #celebratinglove #HonoringTraditions #celebratingcommunity
“So grateful to all our extended family and friends who came from all over the world to honour our family and tradition today.
“Congratulations to the entire Iweala family and Ndi Umuda Isingwu. Congratulations to the Goos family of Heidelberg, Germany.
“To our newest couple, Uzodinma Iweala and Lotte Elsa. May you continue to find true happiness in each other. Love you both!’’
