Lupita Nyongo’s younger brother, Junior Nyong’o has finally tied the knot with his long-time Australian-born girlfriend, Wanja Wohoro.
The two exchanged marriage vows in a private wedding ceremony held at Zereniti House in Limuru, Kiambu County on Thursday.
The wedding came about eight months after the couple held a low key engagement party attended by friends and family members on November 16th, 2019.
Junior and Wanja shared their wedding photos and publicly declared their love on Instagram.
“You are a fixed point in my universe, and the best friend I’ve ever known. Not the wedding we planned originally, but ultimately even more perfect and intimate than we could have ever imagined,” wrote Wanja.
Junior posted: “I will walk for miles to water your roots every single day until you are too tall and impossible for anyone to ignore.”
Wanja is known to be a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and freelance writer while Junior is an actor.
Wanja was born in Australia to a Kenyan dad and an Aussie mum and permanently relocated to Kenya three years ago.
Lupita could not travel to Kenya for her brother’s wedding to the Covid-19 travel restrictions but she followed the event online.
“Yup, he is off the market, folks! Sharing a moment of joy in my family’s life when my sweet, gentle, loving baby brother @juniornyongo made his declaration of love to his new bride @wanjawohoro this week. I still cannot believe I was not physically present, but thank God for technology! Welcome to the family, Wanja!” Lupita said on Instagram.
Lupita and Junior are children of Kisumu Governor Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o.
