Expected to grace the occasion are his past teammates with the Super Eagles such as Nwankwo Kanu, Jay Jay Okocha, as well as his former teammates and top celebrity musicians and Nollywood personalities.
Emmanuel Emenike and Iheoma Nnadi’s romantic affair first came to public notice in 2016. Before now, Iheoma Nnadi had sparked their wedding rumour after she sent her boyfriend Emmanuel Emenike a stunning birthday message. The birthday message, left people thinking that probably a wedding had been done in secret.
“Happy birthday to the keeper of my heart, my husband, my favorite man and my only beau. Today I pray that God almighty bless you with long life, peace and prosperity. I Love you my king. Time to celebrate.’
Iheoma Nnadi made headlines in 2014 after she was accused of lying about her age, shortly after she clinched the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria title. Though her bio data then stated she is 19 years old, her critics claimed she was older than that. This controversy came from a picture posted on her Instagram page, which shows a throwback to 7 years ago, where she was looking matured.
“I posted a picture on Instagram 10 months ago, and people missed out the part where I said I think it was 2007, suddenly I woke up on morning and it was blowing out, people were trying to add my age together and say, if I was 11 then, how can I be 19 now, but then I never even stated what age, but am 19 and that’s not a lie,” she explained.
