Photos: Dirk Nowitzki weds and dances to Mugiithi in Kenya


By Antony Karanja

We ran a story on  a few weeks ago reporting that Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki had a traditional wedding Ceremony in Kenya.

Several sources denied it and the Dallas Mavericks denied it as well.  They should have realised that something was cooking with Dirk because his twitter and Facebook posts went silent during that period.

Now you can view some photos to prove that there was some ceremony geared towards their union taking place. It was a traditional kikuyu wedding ceremony commonly referred to as Ngurario.

The short version of the Kikuyu wedding, that is meant to announce to the community that the daughter is engaged, provided relatives from both sides with an opportunity to get to know each other and conclude ruracio (dowry payments) discussions.

When a couple goes through the ruracio phase, their wedding is officially recognized by customary laws.

There was plenty of fun and and plenty to eat and drink. The bride, Jessica was wearing a traditional Kikuyu garment and Dirk was in a dark brown traditional outfit with orange hues. Jessica was also presented with a kiondo by elederly kikuyu women. She had to demonstrate how she would go to the market and shop for her husband.

The NBA Star and Jessica Olsson held the ceremony over the July15th  weekend.  Jessica is born of a Kenyan mother and a Swedish father.

Later the couple together with the guests danced to mugithi tunes. Jessica is born of a Kenyan mother and a Swedish father who both live in Sweden. Her two brothers, Martin and Marcus Olsson play professional football in the English Premier League. She is the associate director of the Goss-Michael Foundation art gallery based in Dallas, Texas.

      golddigger americans no wonder you ass holes are all single parents ! divorcing like fleas

      • QueenPixidust

        First of all~ Not *ALL* Americans are gold diggers, single parents nor are they divorcing “like fleas”. At least Americans have some class and they don’t go around bashing other countries like you did. We could bad mouth you and your country after centuries worth of rumors to base our comments on, but what would be the point? I mean…a few bad eggs over the course of history doesn’t mean ALL of you are bad does it? Nawwww….of course not. Must be the way you were raised then. Quite sad actually. And if you just happen to be talking about this NBA player’s wife…Yeah, you must have been last in line when they handed out brains as well…because she’s not American. She is Swedish. So before you bash someone’s country, because of a person that isn’t even from here…maybe you should try brushing up on Reading Comprehension. I hear they used to teach it in schools, way back when you never went.

    Why do people have so much hate in the comments??
    The couple love each other and got married, and here people(read “Anus”, specifically) come to abuse the couple and others in the comments section??
    Shame on such people… Find out why you’re so bitter and fix yourself. Hating others will not sort out your problems or your life. At least do that much for yourself…
