I don’t know how I feel about this story… We all know by know that Lupita’s younger brother Junior Nyong’o got married to his long-time lover, Wanja Wohoro yesterday at a surprise wedding.
The couple had one of the prettiest weddings that have happened in Kenya with the ceremony having a unique feel and quality in it that will surely go down as goals for some. And remember that the wedding wasn’t even what the couple had had planned initially!
And the uniqueness of the wedding didn’t end there as it seems that Junior might be taking his wife’s name as his last name, a departure of old patriarchal norms that most cultures have followed for ages.
This is if a tweet posted by his brand new wife is anything to go by. In a tweet seen by Classic105.com, the beauty revealed that her new hubby had taken up her last name: “Oop! Mr Wanja”. The beauty accompanied the caption with photos of their big day. Love is sweet.”
🧡 oop! Mr Wanja 🤗

Junior has already shown a penchant for a man who dances to his own beat and if indeed he has taken her name as his own, this would be par for the course for him.
Her comment was met with a lot of joy and mirth from her fans and followers with many congratulating the couple as they entered a new phase in their lives. Some of those comments are below:
