“It takes a village, and Uzo and Lotte had their village there to honour and celebrate them. Another day of #celebratinglove #HonoringTraditions #celebratingcommunity

“So grateful to all our extended family and friends who came from all over the world to honour our family and tradition today.

“Congratulations to the entire Iweala family and Ndi Umuda Isingwu. Congratulations to the Goos family of Heidelberg, Germany.
