PHOTO: Bien and wife Chiki wow netizens with unique wedding bands

Published

Sauti Sol lead vocalist Bien-Aimè and his wife, fitness trainer cum radio presenter, Chiki Kuruka recently shared a picture on social media of their new wedding bands and netizens cannot keep calm. Instead of wearing actual wedding rings, the couple opted to tattoo bands on their fingers.

Bien shared a picture of their freshly drawn ring tattoos and if we are being really honest, they look absolutely beautiful.  “My wife, my life, my everything. For rich or for poor. In sickness and in health. Till death do us part,” he wrote.

The couple tied the knot at a civil ceremony held at the Registrar of Marriages before proceeding to host an invite-only reception at the Pallet Cafe in Lavington, Nairobi in March.

Many were ‘angered by the singer’s decision to leave out so many people, including his fans, from the ceremony to which he responded requesting not to be invited to any wedding either.

“My message to those who are mad at me because they were not invited is, they should hold their weddings and don’t invite me. I am no longer interested in attending weddings because I have attended so many of them. It was my way of celebrating my commitment to my wife,” he said.

Bien, who spent less than Sh300,000 on his wedding, went on to advice netizens to refrain from splurging on weddings; explaining that such a ceremony is just a one-day affair.

“Please don’t do a wedding to please your parents. Do it depending on the size of your pockets, how much you can afford. A wedding is the beginning of your life. So don’t spend all your money on a wedding. Do something small and affordable. You better spend much on your honeymoon than at the wedding. Stop borrowing loans and money from your friends so you can hold a big wedding and go into debt. The budget was less than Sh300,000. A good budget for artistes like me,” he said.

Following his highly private wedding, many people requested the singer to post pictures of their big day on social media. Speaking during an interview on Radio Jambo, Bien explained that his decision to make his wedding private was so that he and his wife can enjoy their love without ‘external pressure and negative energy’.

“I haven’t made my wedding pictures public because my wedding was not an ordinary wedding. We went to the Ag and later hosted lunch and invited my close family members. The vibe that was at my wedding made my day so beautiful. It was, in fact, the happiest day of my life and I haven’t felt that love and positivity around me anywhere else. If I post the pictures on social media, not everyone will understand what is really going on because they can’t feel it. I don’t want to give idiots on social media an opportunity to talk about my wedding,” he explained.

Beautiful Anita Nderu leaves Team Mafisi confused after declaring that she is a member of LGBTQ Community

Published

on

Kenyan media personality Anita Nderu has sparked mixed reactions online after announcing she is a member of the LGBTQ community.

 

Nderu, a former presenter at Capital FM, revealed this through a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, saying she hopes her kids will not be subjected to what she has gone through for being LGBTQ.

“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” Anita wrote.

Her announcement comes weeks after she came under heavy criticism from social media users for hosting two gay men on her YouTube show. Anita later defended her show, saying her guests were only friends who decided to show their real selves.

In July this year, Nderu said she would not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.

The video, which was meant for viewers over the age of 18, caught the attention of many, which led to her trending for days.

Speaking to Massawe on Radio Jambo, Anita said she respects people’s opinions but she will not apologise.

She said she has always been open about different things happening around, and so this being pride month, she decided to invite some of her friends on the show.

“I simply asked my friends to come on my web show and be themselves. What any of us have chosen to do on the show is how each of us is. Nothing about my show is scripted. What you see from the guests, food to outcome is what actually genuinely took place,” she said.

Anita has not been secretive about being a staunch supporter of Kenyan lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons.

“As people, we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity & wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved. Have an amazing day,” she added.

Here is why people think I am gay, Kenyan woman opens up

Published

on

The Kenyan woman had been rumored to be a lesbian for a long time but no one was quite sure whether that was indeed true.

Not that being gay ia an unusual or a new thing. However, a lot of eyebrows are still being raised when it comes to the issue perhaps because homosexuality is considered an illegal activity in Kenya

Sometime in October 2017 Patricia Kihoro was rumored to have been caught pants down in a lesbian threesome with some other Kenyan women.

But now the Popular Vlogger, actress and singer says her efforts to keep her love life private was the sole reason that led to speculations that she was lesbian.

At the time, it was reported that Kihoro was in a relationship with a well-known female Kenyan rapper and as well as another female media personality.

But the 34-year-old says she has always dated men but kept her relationships low key, which explains why people started speculating she was playing for the other ‘team’.

DATING MEN

“For the longest time, I was dating men. If you go through my Instagram over the years I didn’t even hide. I would post people but it wasn’t like lovey-dovey stuff, if you were keen you would see who I was dating at the time. I would post them in the context that this is somebody in my life but I wouldn’t reveal in what way they are in my life. I think of how private I kept that side of my life, people then speculate, start to make up things,” Kihoro said.

Kihoro shot into the limelight back in 2009 when she took part in the singing competition Tusker Project Fame 3 where she was among the finalists.

She later landed a job as a presenter for Homeboyz Radio and also ventured into acting. Over the years she has also been a very active YouTube vlogger and brand influencer.

“I have been accused of being a lesbian but first of all, it is not an accusation, because calling me a lesbian is not an insult as I have met wonderful human beings who are homosexual and are far better than people who have stood in certain standards of judging others.

So that is why I never speak about it. I am who I am, you know! I know what I stand for and my family knows what I stand for,” said Patricia.

Patricia further revealed that her mother has been very supportive of her work and opinion. She reveals that her first interaction with gay people was courtesy of her mother.

“My mother has supported my work from the start and she always respects my opinion. The first people I ever met who were openly gay were friends of my mum. I was probably 16 years and she didn’t make a big deal about it, and therefore I also did not learn that was a big deal,” revealed Patricia.
