The switch has been flipped *pun intended* and society is now contending with younger men dating older women.
The paradigm shift has recently been called into question when Gospel singer Guardian Angel over the weekend said he is dating a 50 year old woman. Guardian is 24 years old. So you can see where the hollaballo is coming from.
So here is a look back at Kenyan male celebrities mocked for dating or marrying older women.
Guardian Angel has caused a stir online after he introduced his girlfriend who is twice his age. Angel, whose real name is Audiphaxad Peter Omwaka, recently announced he is dating fellow gospel singer Esther Musila, who is 50 years old. Kenyans on social media are split whether he is mad or love wins.
I AM PROUD OF MYSELF. #LOVEWINS❣. the singer wrote
SOMETIMES THE MOST DIFFICUT SACRIFICE IS TO ABANDON THE COMFORTABLE MEDIOCRITY F WHO WE ARE AND EMBRACE THE BEAUTIFUL FEAR OF WHO WE’RE MEANT TO BE.
John Allan Namu
The hunky former KTN journalist is married to Sheena Makena, married in 2010 while working at KTN. He was only an intern at Standard Group while Sheen was an editor.
“When were started working together at KTN, I was an intern and i was scared… And she was a scary editor like anybody who remembers Makena was like “if you don’t have your time codes get out’ you know. And interestingly enough we just started to vibe and we talked a lot like when we were in the edit suite we had a lot of stories. I would often get late, a lot of my stories would run late because we were talking and that sort of thing,” John Allan Namu narrated during an interview with Ebru TV.
He has been nicknamed Mtoto wa Diana, his wife Diana Marua, who is alleged to be way older than him. They are cyber bullied for this fact and once on their youtube channel, Bahati apologized to Diana asaying his fame has hurt her. “Right now Diana is in the public eye because of me. She has been abused because of me. She is hitting a million followers for the wrong stories,” he said.People say she is at least ten years older, but we dont know for sure.
Pastor Pius Muiru
