Nigerin track star and Africaâ€™s fastest woman Blessing Okagbare is married and off the market. She finally said “I Do” to fellow athlete Igho Otegheri over the weekend at a traditional wedding in Sapele, Delta State.
On her marriage being a distraction to her career, she says:
“Getting married wonâ€™t in any way stop me from doing the usual things on the track,â€ said Okagbare. â€œI have been looking forward to this moment and by the Grace of God, we will celebrate it with everything.â€
â€œBut one thing I want to assure my fans and all Nigerians is that I will continue to work hard to put smiles on their faces as long as my body allows me to run and jump on the track.
â€œThere (is) lots of work to be done and I have started training well ahead. I will return to the track soon after my wedding and I pray God to continue to guide me and my husband as we commence the journey of our married life,”
She also had nice words for her husband whom she described as nice, God fearing, kind and a wonderful supporter.
