Okonjo-Iweala’s first son weds in Germany

Uzo Iweala, son of the director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has wedded Lotte Elsa in Heidelberg, Germany.

The lovers got married on Sunday.

In a viral video, Mrs Okonjo-Iweala is seen showing off her dance moves at the wedding ceremony.

The WTO DG danced to an array of Nigerian music with her new daughter-in-law.

The groom’s aunt Njide Udochi shared videos from the ceremony on her Facebook page on Sunday.

She 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…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!”
