Augustine ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, former Super Eagles midfielder, and Nkechi, his wife, have taken to social media to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.
The 48-year-old marked the occasion with a loved-up photo of himself and his wife on his Instagram page on Tuesday.
In a terse post accompanying the photo, the football star hailed Nkechi, who he described as the “wife of my youth”.
“Happy 25th wedding Anniversary to the wife of my youth,” he wrote.
The lovebirds tied the knot in 1997. Their union has produced two children namely Daniella and A-Jay.
Okocha, who spent nearly thirteen years with the Nigerian national side, won the 1994 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) with the Eagles.
He also featured in five AFCON tournaments for the three-time African champions and was part of the Olympic gold medal-winning side in 1996.
