Ogbonna Kanu is the brother of Ex-super Eagles footballer Kanu Nwankwo and he is married to the sister of Linda Ikeji the blogger Laura Ikeji.

The brother of the ex-footballer is famous for his braided hair and I can’t remember spotting him without a braided hair.

From the recent revelation which he posted some photos online, it is the first time he will be going out forgetting his braids.

Ogbonna has shaved his hair off and he has attributed this to his wife Laura being the reason, it is a birthday gift for her.

Could she have been complaining over the former looks or was he just tired of that same all time fashion? From the wife’s post she liked the braids so it was just a personal motive.


Accompanying the photos was this writes up;

“This is for you my wife, it’s never enough to say what I feel for you, I adore you. You’ve always been my strength; I want to thank you for being my wife. @lauraikeji #newlook #support”

In response to accepting the gift, the wife said

”it’s her best birthday gift ever “Dude cut his braids for me!!!!! Haaaaa, best birthday gift everrrrr!!! My baby for life! kinda liked the braids too.”

The wife of Kanu Nwankwo is not in good terms with the family of Ogbonna Kanu saying he is only trying to rip her family apart.
