Super Eagles and Everton striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni married Yvonne Lameen Ikhana last week.
“When I wake up everyday, I look at her face and she makes me happy. I go for training and play my matches with happiness in my heart. That is the motivation that makes me perform well. She often tells me: ‘Just go there and play well and score for me.’ That gives me more confidence and belief in myself,” Yakubu said after the marriage ceremony. Eagles’ striker and Yakubu’s team-mate at Everton, Victor Anichebe, was the Best Man at the historic wedding ceremony that Captain Nwankwo Kanu and his wife, Amarachi also attended.
Kanu praised Yakubu’s decision to ‘settle down’ and urged the couple to show love and commitment to their marriage vows.
Retired skipper of the Eagles, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha took time out to felicitate with Yakubu and Yvonne.
“It’s good that Yakubu is married now. I wish him and his wife a happy married life,” Okocha said.
Congrats to the Nomoreloss (Muyiwa Osinuga) and Phoenix Child (Adeola Ogunrinola).
All the best to both couples.
