#Throwback Thursday: Kanu Nwankwo and his wife Amara's wedding pictures

Our throwback wedding of the day is Kanu Nwankwo's wedding. Nicknamed "Papilo" by his peers, the Nigerian footballer and former Super Eagles captain got married to Amarachi in a lavish ceremony (it was very lavish at the time) in Owerri in 2004. I remember how the media was reporting Kanu's wedding then, it even made national news. Dignitaries from far and near came en masse to honour the footballer.

The marriage is blessed with three children.  See the wedding pictures
