Ben Pol: I did not enjoy anything in my failed marriage
By Wanja Waweru
Ben Pol, the Bongo flava singer has said he never enjoyed his 11 months of marriage to Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai.
The musician in a candid interview with Millard Ayo branded his marriage to Anerlisa as purely a social media aesthetic union.
“If I am, to be honest with you, if you removed the Instagram posts we used to put up about our marriage, there is nothing really good that I enjoyed or experienced about marriage like I see of other couples,” Ben Pol says.
The ‘Moyo Mashine’ hitmaker says he feels their marriage was mostly about documenting their moves on social media to paint a picture of a happy union, yet that wasn’t the case in reality.
“For us, our marriage was pure aesthetics. It was all about taking pictures and writing colorful captions and nothing much. I don’t mean to demean anyone but in my opinion I feel like I got into a situation to complete someone’s idea of being perfect.”
Ben Pol also revealed that their divorce was finalized after almost two years after filing for an annulment.
