Dirk Nowitzki Was Married in Africa Over the Weekend

Dirk Nowitzki got married over the weekend in Africa. This means that everyone jumped the gun by a week when they breathlessly reported Dirk had married his fiancee, Jessica Olsson.

According to Newstime Africa, Dirk said:

“This is one of two wedding set-ups that we have planned to undertake and the ceremony has been very beautiful,” said Dirk. The seven foot tall NBA player delivered the bride price as it’s expected in a befitting traditional African ceremony in Kenya. Sources clarify that Jessica and Nowitzki born of a Swedish father and a Kenyan mother, opted to wed in style with hosting the ceremonies one in her mother’s home based in Kenya and the other in Germany.
