Brenda Wairimu has opened up about her relationship with rapper Juliani. The actress also revealed details of when Juliani meet her parents who are now dead.
While still on the issue, she explained why she quit the popular TV show, Lets Talk.
“IT WAS GETTING A BIT OVERWHELMING AND I NEEDED TO GET THE BALANCE AGAIN. I’M ON THE ACTING GRIND AND GETTING LATE FOR WORK. I END UP DOING A TERRIBLE JOB THERE BECAUSE IT S EATING INTO MY CHARACTER,” BRENDA EXPLAINED.
DJ Pierra Makena also put out a press statement on why she left the show.
“AFTER LONG CONSULTATIONS..PRAYERS AND THINKING…I’M SAD TO ANNOUNCE THAT I HAVE DECIDED I WILL NO LONGER BE ON THE “LETS TALK SHOW” AND NEITHER WILL I BE WORKING WITH THE STATION. SOMETIMES IN LIFE YOU FEEL THAT YOUR HAPPINESS NEEDS TO BE A PRIORITY AND YOU TAKE NECESSARY STEPS TO ACHIEVE THAT.. I’D LIKE TO PROMOTE AND BUILD PEOPLE THE BEST WAY I CAN. I FULLY SUPPORT THE NEXT ABLE TEAM THAT WILL BE TAKING OVER AND I DO BELIEVE THIS SHOW WILL STILL BE THE BEST. I CONSIDER MYSELF VERY FORTUNATE FOR HAVING A CHANCE TO WORK WITH ELLA, BRENDA AND MONIQUE. WORKING WITH YOU WAS SO MUCH FUN!! I REALLY VALUE THE KNOWLEDGE AND INSIGHT YOU HAVE. AND TO ALL MY FANS THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT.. I HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU….JUST KEEP IT HERE …WILL SAY SOON. LOTS OF LOVE😍😍 #BEYOU.”
After it rebranded only Monique and Ella remained.
MONIQUE SAID, “FIRST OF ALL, HOW GORGEOUS ARE THESE WOMEN? WELCOME TO THE TABLE!! 👑👑👑👑 I HAD MISSED Y’ALL! ‘
Adding, “Just when you are about to lose hope, God says “I got you”. To my incredible support system, those who have in any way, shape or form supported me and any well wishers…I share this amazing moment with you.”
Brenda Wairimu also reminisced about how she met Juliani. Apparently, she DMed him when she heard he was coming to USIU though she told him he might not see her as she is short.
Juliani read the DM and followed up. Years later they are still an item.
The 29-year-old movie star admitted that at one point in the relationship, the duo gave up and took time off.
“WE HAD BROKEN UP BEFORE. I DON’T THINK I’M THAT PERSON WHO WOULD GO INTO DETAILS ABOUT WHY A RELATIONSHIP IS WORKING OR NOT WORKING BUT IN THAT MOMENT IT WASN’T AND WE NEEDED TIME OUT.”
Brenda went on to advise slay queens and Nairobi fisilets about relationships.
“THIS GENERATION, PEOPLE GIVE UP VERY EASILY IN RELATIONSHIPS. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF KUTOANA MABALI AND WORKING THROUGH THE RELATIONSHIP TOGETHER. NI MUHIMU KUVUMILIANA, KUSAIDIANA AND TO GROW EACH OTHER IN RELATIONSHIPS.”
During that period when Brenda and Juliani were on a break, she revealed that team mafisi were active on her DM.
“COMPETITION IS ALWAYS GOOD, I MEAN…” SHE SAID SHRUGGING.
Brenda who is an orphan after her parents passed away in 2012 and 2015 narrated how Juliani met both of them.
“ACTUALLY WE MEET MY DAD A DIFFERENT DAY FROM WHEN HE MET MY MUM. HE MET MY DAD WHEN I HAD BOUGHT MY DAD SHOES AND I REMEMBER I WAS TAKING THEM TO HIM. I USED TO HAVE THIS HUSTLE OF ‘I DON’T KNOW HOW I WOULD GET ALL THE WAY FROM THIKA ROAD WHERE HE USED TO STAY TO THOSE SIDES OF MOMBASA ROAD’. SO JULIANI ACTUALLY TOOK ME . THEY MEET AND HAD A LONG CHAT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY TALKED ABOUT TO DATE.”
She lost her father in October 2012, due to Kidney failure. She had a very strong bond with her daddy and this brought her down. Brenda sunk into depression. She spoke to Kalekye Mumo about it on Talk Central.
“I DIDN’T HANDLE IT WELL AND NO I DIDN’T TURN TO DRUGS. I DON’T KNOW ANYONE WHO HANDLES DEATH WELL. I BECAME VERY WITHDRAWN BUT I NEVER TURNED INTO DRUGS,” BRENDA SAID.
The cute lass unfortunately, lost her mother on Sunday, November 15, 2015, three years after burying her dad.
Brenda also shared about her mum passing on.
“WE ACCEPT HUMBLY THAT TRULY OUR MUM HAS GONE TO BE WITH THE LORD. THIS IS HER IN HER HAY DAYS, GORGEOUS ISN’T SHE…
SHE LEFT US ON SUNDAY MORNING, AND FOR MOST ALL OF US, IT STILL SEEMS LIKE A DREAM.
A ONE-OFFF UNDRAISER FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WILL BE AT MBARAKI SPORTS CLUB WEDNESDAY 18TH NOV FROM 4PM, LAID TO REST LATER THIS WEEK. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SHOWN US LOVE AND STRENGTH THROUGH THIS WHOLE TIME. LOVE YOU MUM.”
Brenda said that Juliani met her mum when “he actually came to our house in Mombasa.”
