Amara Nwankwo: ‘I Was So In Love To Consider Age When I Married Kanu’

Amara Nwankwo, wife of ex-Nigerian international, Kanu Nwankwo has revealed why she got married at the age of 18.

Though Amara isn’t the first celebrity WAG to get married – Omotola Jalade Ekeinde got married at the same age – she disclosed that she was so in love with the ex-Arsenal legend to consider her age when she got the marriage proposal.

In an interview with Punch Newspaper, she said, “I wasn’t scared; I felt it like it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I was in love, so there was no time for a negative feeling like fear to come up. I think the love I had and still have for my husband was all I needed to feel comfortable and good.

Speaking further she said, ‘Marriage is a growth process and I learn on a daily basis. I got married as a teenager. I was young. I think I jumped into the deep end and I simply went with it. It takes a lot of determination to keep things going because irrespective of your age, marriage throws a lot of curves at you. The main thing is being able to bounce back after being hit with a surprise or what you do not expect.

When I was getting married, I was not ready to be thrust into the limelight. I didn’t even know what I was getting into. I wasn’t a football fan and I knew nothing about the Premiership. I didn’t know I was getting married into that level of limelight as I was young, vibrant and in love. I am now a football fan,‘ she said.
