The Nigerian international midfielder tied the knot with his fiancée Sandra Ogunsuyi, at the marriage registry in Ikoyi, Lagos on December 29, 2015 in a private ceremony.

Among the few guests that joined the Italy-based midfielder and his 23-year-old bride included former Super Eagles striker, Ayodele Makinwa; the groom’s brother, Thompson Onazi, alongside close friend, Ifada Ighodalo, among others.

“I thank God for such a special day. Getting married is a milestone in the life of a man; to get married to a woman who you love and who loves you makes it even more special,” Onazi said in a brief chat.

At the registry ceremony, the bridegroom opted for black suit with a matching bow tie while Sandra preferred a low-cut white lace gown with a matching hat.
