Many Kenyans have some rather scary tales to tell when it comes to their own dating lives. But who knew that even our own Kenyan celebrities have shared in some interesting and rather odd dates. Some interesting anecdotes were gleaned from celebrities who were asked this question on some of the worst dates they ever had. From Timmy Tdat to Femi One they regale us with what would be considered as horror dates for most. Here are some of the celebrities and their stories:
1. Femi One
“We were in this posh restaurant and as we waited for our meal to be served, we were given some sanitising water that my date ended up drinking instead of washing his hands. You can imagine how I felt as everyone witnessed the clumsy moment.
“I was attracted to this girl I had met in college. Unfortunately she was a beautiful girl with an ugly personality. One day, we went for a date at a place near the University of Nairobi and she became so rude to the waiters that I was embarrassed. She kept cursing and shouting because of the wrong order and even cutlery arrangement. Everyone wondered what I, this celeb in town, was doing with such a bi**h.
3. Timmy Tdat
“I was in campus, second year, when I met this ‘chick’ who was a fellow student. Despite stern warnings from her parents that I should stay away from her, we fell for each other. One day, I went ahead and asked her out for a date at a nearby restaurant.
Thirty minutes after my arrival, she walked in looking quite disturbed even as she went ahead to hug me. Before we could settle down, her mean-looking father who had come with policemen caught me. I ended up spending a day in the cells before my family finally bailed me out.”
4. Vivian: Singer
“We went for an event together with this guy and once we got there it is like he forgot he had come with someone; he was all over talking to people and I got fed up so I confronted him. I approached him and told him off but since it was a function I left after a short while. He tried calling me but I don’t tolerate such behaviour.”
5. DJ Malaika
“I met this Asian guy at the Coast. We started getting acquainted, he asked for my number and from there we started getting to know each other. When we went for a date he was so rude to the waiter, it made me so uncomfortable that I didn’t want to continue. When we left, we went our separate ways and that was it. He tried calling several times but I never answered.”
7. Rachel: TVC Presenter
“I met this guy through a friend and we had been talking for two weeks since we first met. He kept asking me if we could meet up for a date so I decided to give it a try. We went to a fine dining restaurant and he came with his cousin and brother for the date which really puzzled me. As we went on he said it was important for them to meet me as well because he wants to marry me and their approval was important.
I couldn’t take it so I excused myself to the ladies and that was the last time he saw me. I freaked out because this is someone I had met once. I was not ready to run away until he said, ‘she is smart enough not to say no.’ Deep down I kept hoping it was a joke but it wasn’t. He was also proud and could use a class if not two on manners.”
There you have it. Stories that show that bad dates are a dime a dozen.
