She met Junior Nyongo back in 2015 when she had come home for a vacation from Australia. The cute moment happened at a New Years Eve party, where hearts fluttered.

Wanja is a musician and Junior is an actor cum DJ, so their love for music was a uniting factor.Junior Married

She told Vogue magazine that “He made me a drink, and we got to talking about music and that was that, really: Love,” Wanja says. “From that day, things just progressed and grew despite us both going back to study in Florida and Sydney, respectively.”

From that magical moment they dated until 2019 when Junior proposed and speaking of their four year dating.

He also planned the proposal to have her family surprise her the moment she said yes in Tigoni. He inscribed her favorite poem in the ring. Cute!

Their wedding was to happen in May, but they postponed it owing to covid 19. It took place in July.

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, 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.”

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.

The man did it in the most controversial way possible; his choice of clothes reflected his loud and proud attitude he had adopted the past few years.

The younger brother of Lupita decided to wear a dress to the event, stealing the show with his blue and white floral skirt. This isn’t the first time that the fashion-forward Junior has rocked a dress.

In November 2018, the artsy thespian had the internets in a rage when he wore a red dress to a public.

If you thought the backlash he received for the dress would make him quit that style, you were in for a surprise. The man wore yet another dress and this year that showed that the man lives his life as he feels, haters be damned.
