The home of the Akunyilis in Agulu, Anambra State, will today resonate with love and celebrations as one of their daughters, Somto Dorothy Akunyili, is formalising her marriage union with Chinonso Saviour Asuzu, who hails from Isiekenesi in Imo State.
According to a source close to the family, the couple was brought together by a mutual friend in 2012. At that time, little did they know that both of them were birthday mates. To solidify the relationship, Chinonso usually showers her heartthrob with gifts to celebrate her birthday every year.
Unarguably, the Akunyilis are determined to record today in memories for their charming and ever promising doctor daughter and her beau in spite of the demise of their ever-lovable mother.
Somto Akunyili had her medical degree from the Chicago Medical School in Illinois. She is the third child of Prof. Dora and Chike Akunyili. She is currently in her final year of radiology residency training at William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak Michigan.
Chinonso Asuzu had his medical degree from the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow. He is the first son and first child of five children. Tough a Russsian-trained physician, he is currently residing in the United States.
