The football stars spent only a day in Benin before getting back to Lagos where they were spotted partying at the popular Club Quilox.
Onyekuru and Esty have been dating for several years and have a one-year-old son together.
It’s been a very busy summer for Onyekuru who moved into a new mansion in Lekki. He had an opening party for the new mansion just before he joined the Super Eagles ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The forward played just one game as the Super Eagles went on to win the bronze medal at AFCON 2019.
He is the second Super Eagles player to wed this summer after Wilfred Ndidi who tied the knot with his partner Fortunate in Abuja in May before AFCON 2019
