UBA and Transcorp Tony Elumelu

Businessman and philanthropist Tony Elumelu on Thursday posted to social media rare photos of his traditional wedding to Awele.

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, a social media term for sharing old photos, the group chairman of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc said it felt like yesterday.

“Throwback to our trad. Feels just like yesterday,” Elumelu said.

Mrs Elumelu, a medical doctor, has maintained a quiet profile since they got married in 1993.

She is a trustee of the Tony Elumelu Foundation and founder of Avon Medical.

Elumelu and wife have seven children — five girls and two boys.
