Last weekend, former Super Eagles’ Coach, Samson Siasia’s daughter, Sanita Siasia walked down the aisle with her heartthrob, Jamell Barret, at the prestigious Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Atlanta, United States.
Vanguard reports it was really an emotional moment for the ebony skinned Nigerian, whose soccer team won Nigeria’s only medal in the Rio Olympic Games.
It was gathered that as soon as it was time for the traditional father/daughter dance, Siasia stormed the dance floor, sliding in rhythmic moves to the admiration of the audience while the young beautiful Sanita, danced and giggled to encourage her father to different dance styles.
Speaking on his daughter’s wedding, Siasia reportedly said;
“This is one thing every father looks forward to and I thank God for this day to be able to walk my daughter down the aisle for marriage,” Siasia enthused. He was very emotional about the traditional assignment of handing his daughter over for marriage.
In an emotional-laden voice, coach Siasia said, “I still remember her growing up and just being my baby and now that she is starting another great chapter of having her own family with Jamell, I give God the glory and express my sincere gratitude to my better half Eunice, because together, God has used us to raise a wonderful young woman.”
The wedding reception which took place at the Marriot Hotel in Atlanta, attracted a large crowd including Siasia’s former team mates like Paul Okoku, Alphonsus Akhahon and Aniete Effiong. Other former soccer players in attendance included, Ikem Udeh, former Falcons goalkeeper Judith Chime and Bob Ubanwa. Daniel Abumere who was personal assistant to coach Siasia came from Nigeria for the event.
