If one was to look at Betty Kyallo’s life in the month of October 2015, it would look like it had been penned by the great Walt Disney himself.
This unknown girl had made it in this cold and harsh world-making it first as a media darling on KTN, to dating and getting married to one of the most eligible men ion Kenya in Dennis Okari.
Her life story seemed to be pitch-perfect at that time with everything going well for her. The modern trope having it all springs to mind.
But things were not as great as they seemed on the surface as 6 months after their glorious grand wedding the couple separated ignominiously with a daughter the result of the short marriage.
Some governor who shall remain unnamed was named as a possible cause of the split. Sine then Okari has moved on and got married last year in another grand wedding while Betty has been linked to various men who she keeps behind a veil.
But it seems that Betty’s appetite for grand weddings is done and she has revealed that her next marriage will be a two-people affair; just her and her man.
Miss Kyallo revealed this to in an up-close interview with Billy Miya,
“Especially now I don’t want a big wedding. Just me and him at the AG’s office, we have our rice at the next restaurant, got home and start life. Honeymoon is fine but this thing of feeding 5,000 people at your wedding, is crazy. When things go wrong in your marriage, you will look for this 5,000 people and they will be nowhere to be seen.”
For Betty, there was no sense in struggling with a failed marriage when you clearly can tell it shall never see the light of day.
“You don’t need to put a brave face in public but behind closed doors, you two are not okay. I chose to be happy and I’m even happy for him (Okari).
“The thing about marriage, at that time I was young, I didn’t want marriage as such and I didn’t see its meaning. But right now, I have grown as a woman, I understand myself and I now know what I want. I’m ready to mend my ways so that I also get my ring. But now I’m not in a hurry, whoever God will send my way is who I will settle with.”
And who might that ideal man be?
“I want a chunky man and I feel like for a man who is divorced, we can understand each other better. People have been chasing me but right now I am not in the mood and I just want to love myself.”
