Nigerian athlete Blessing Okagbare would soon be walking down the aisle with her boo, Igho Otegheri, an ex-Super Eagles star.
According to report from News Break Nigeria, the lovebirds will be getting married in the month of November in Warri, Delta State.
Speaking on their romance some time back, Blessing had said she knew him first as a friend and then they got closer as time went on.
She said: “Igho is the man I love so much because he possesses all the qualities of the kind of man I want in a man and the fact that I’m a star does not get into his head, but he sees me as the woman he loves which is one thing I want.”
The 25-year-old athlete who hails from Delta state won a bronze medal in long jump events at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. She also won gold for Nigeria in the 100m and 200m athletics event at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
She is a nominee for award of the Sports Woman of the Year award by the Nigeria Sports Award.
On the other hand, Igho Otegheri is a 3-time capped ex-Super Eagles player and former champion of the Heartland Football Club of Owerri.
