The local showbiz industry is flooded with many celebrities but most of the times we talk much about the successful and influential women forgetting about men, especially those behind these women.
Well, we have married men, single, divorced and bachelors who also play a major role in our showbiz industry.
After doing an article about women who are thriving after parting ways with their husbands, I thought it would be interesting to do a list of the men who have made it after separating from their wives.
Well, from Dennis Okari to JBlessing, here are the Kenyan men who are thriving after parting ways with their wives.
1. Dennis Okari
He married Betty Kyallo in a colourful wedding ceremony back in 2015. It was termed the wedding of the year but six months later, they broke up. Betty moved on with life and apart from being a top presenter at KTN, she is also the CEO of a highly rated salon in the city. Okari, on the other hand, has been busy with his career at NTV and besides that, he is a preacher and motivational speaker. He preaches in schools.
2. Pastor Eric Omba
The estranged husband to award-winning singer Gloria Muliro. The two broke up in 2015 after staying together for sometime with Infidelity cited as the main reason for their breakup. Gloria’s career continues to flourish while Omba is a video director and pastor. He later married yet another Congolese gospel singer, Bel and they are blessed with an adorable daughter.
He is a video producer and director who was once married to secular singer-cum-actress Chantelle and were blessed with a son who sadly died. JBlessing is currently working with Blaze and he recently bought a new expensive machine, a clear indication that he is doing fine.
“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome!”
4. Daniel Ng’ang’a Heho aka Hey Z Da Brand
The gospel singer’s wife is said to have cheated on him with another man. His wife is heavily pregnant for her new man while Hey Z is still single. The gospel singer decided to focus on his career and his music has always dominated the local airwaves.
5. Victor Kanyari
The controversial man of God was exposed in 2014 as a con pastor which saw him face a lot of criticism from the public but that has never deterred him from ‘spreading the gospel’.
From building a multi-million shilling palatial home, to acquiring some of the most expensive machines around, the man of the cloth is indeed living like a king. His estranged wife Betty Bayo, continues to shine in the gospel industry. The two were blessed with a daughter and are co-parenting.
6. Phelix Oduor aka Jalang’o
The comedian-cum-presenter also parted ways with his baby mama Cheptoek Boyo though they are co-parenting. Boyo recently revealed that they are no longer an item. Jalang’o married someone else and he is doing fine career-wise. Have you seen the kind of cars he drives?
7. Moses Njuguna Kanene
The estranged husband of sexy TV siren Lillian Muli is also doing well after they parted ways a while back. They have a son together and they are co-parenting.
8. David Makuyu
David Makuyu and Cynthia Nyamai married in 2007 when he was 31, after a year and half of dating. The two parted ways three years later. Cynthia Nyamai, a PR guru moved on and so did Makuyu who remarried in December 2015. He runs Kipawa Music Production.
