Why is Betty Kyallo posting more images revealing more skin this past year?

Betty Kyallo has been in the news the past few months for the type of clothes that she has been donning. The mother of one who has achieved so much over the years has been attacked for showing a little too much skin for some, such that she had to address the issue on her YouTube channels.

The former K24 journalist who had been on vacation at the time in Watamu spoke about the backlash she received at the time.

She was shocked about just how far individuals could go, instead of appreciating her natural curves and thickness. She addressed the haters saying;

It was such a decent bikini thing and I mean, follow the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kourtney, they wear worse things to the beach but they walk around and no one cloths them in T-shirts. But me, you even gave me a handbag at the pool, seriously?

Before clapping back;

I am so proud of my body! I never even bothered to pull down the picture cause you know what, that’s your problem, not mine! I’ll wear whatever I want, I cannot go to the swimming pool in a leso or dera. I love my body thicccc!

And for those that called her out for lacking that ‘bikini body’, she was like;

Show me yours! And if you’re a guy, I’m sure you have a big belly! For the chicks, I now you have love hurdles and are here bodyshaming me. For now, I love my body the way it is, thick!

And Betty was joking around in her response to the trolls as she hasn’t stopped posting images of herself since the debacle to the anger of some individuals.

While some trolls might lose their sh1t over her posting more of the images this year, they are not asking the righ question? Why now?

I have two possible reasons:

The first was that was on the hunt for a new man-a future husband. And what better to do so than on her very popular Instagram page? And her bikini-clad body is the advert for men who are easily titillated.

But after giving it some thought, I settled for the second reason, Betty is her own boss now, she isn’t employed by anyone anymore who might demand a standard of conduct in public. That gives her the freedom to express herself the way she feels like-something she wasn’t able to do when she was at KTN and K24.

But I could be wrong and Betty just loves posing in skimpy outfits. Who knows?

Betty Kyallo spends “quality time” with alleged Somali Bae (photos)

Betty Kyallo has been having the time of her life this past year. The journalist who left K24 earlier this year has been growing in leaps and bounds in her finances having re-launched her salon and buying a new Porsche shortly afterward.

On the home-front, Betty’s smile is even as transcendent as seen with her relationship with her ex-husband Dennis Okari.


The pair share a daughter called Ivanna and while she didn’t used to post images of Dennis spending time with her but this year has been different.

This change has come after the furore that erupted earlier in the year when Ken Mijungu revealed that she was dating a Somali man.

That man according to some was political aspirant, Alinur Mohammed. While both denied the claim, they have continued being seeing together, possibly capitalising on the notoriety/publicity that the allegations brought about.

Yesterday was no different as Betty was a special guest at MP Alinur Mohammed’s football tournament at California, Eastleigh, for a football match.

Announcing the success of the tournament, Alinur kinda revealed that Betty has political ambitions. He said, “With the next Nairobi county woman rep Betty Kyallo and hon. Samuel Masaki at the final day of Hon. Alinur super cup at California award, Kamukunji constituency. Instilling a culture of sports that enables mental and physical health and nurtures a community of young footballers is among my priorities.”

Betty herself said,

Say whatever you will about the two but they do know how to stretch a narrative and capitalise on whatever rumours they could to spread their agenda. Smart if you ask me.

Betty Kyallo recounts most special interview with Churchill Ndambuki

Betty Kyallo and Mwalimu Churchill teamed up this past week in one of the best shows of 2020. The two celebs who are from the Kamba ethnic community gave fans the time of their lives with Churchill interviewing the bubbly Betty.

The interview was such a memento for the former K24 host that she even made a note about how special it was in her latest vlog on BK Lately.

Feeling like a Rockstar!

A post shared by Betty Kyallo 🇰🇪 (@bettymuteikyallo) on

Betty admitted that she had gambled on whether to watch her interview on Churchill or her vlog that premiered almost at the same time.

She confessed that the interview had done so well with Kenyans that the mother of one finally opened up on what made it one of the most special interviews she has had.

I really wanted to be a nun, maybe Ivanna will become one – Betty Kyallo tells Churchill

She recounted, “It was like I was reciting my life story directly to the lens and I got so emotional, at one point I nearly broke down but I tried to hold myself and be strong. I was literally being honest with myself in that interview; I accepted my not-so-pretty past and I openly spoke about it.”

She also came clean on her very rough relationship with her dad, but that how spoke about her during his interview with Churchill touched her.

He called me “daddy’s girl”. He was so proud of me and that was so special to me. I even texted him and said, “dad thank you so much for saying all those amazing words to me”. Because I never got to hear them many times while growing up. I got to hear what he actually thought about me.


And it wasn’t only her dad’s words that impressed Betty, her mom and sister’s words also amazed her,

“I’m happy I was alive to hear what my family had to say about Betty. In life, tell the people you love, what you think about them, what you love about them, what they do that makes you happy. Don’t wait to say it to them at their funeral or on their sick bed,” she urged her fans.

I really wanted to be a nun, maybe Ivanna will become one – Betty Kyallo tells Churchill

When you look at Betty Kyallo, one instantly notices the bubbly, happy go lucky personality that she is, almost always glowing.

Her general demeanour is inviting to anyone who sees or talks to her. That’s why it wasn’t that much of a surprise that she became one of the most popular TV news anchors in Kenya.

But it seems that Kenyans might have been deprived of her on-screen talents had she chosen her first love.

This weekend Betty disclosed that she had always wanted to become a nun. In an extensive interview with Churchill Ndambuki, the CEO of high-end beauty parlour Flair by Betty said she admired how nuns dressed while she was still young.

Betty disclosed that she was raised in a staunch Catholic family, explaining;

“I wanted to be a nun but mabudesco changed me. Walinichanganya wakanimalisa. I used to admire nuns how they looked nice in their white clothes during mass… I was like I wanna be like them hakuna kusumbuliwa na machali. Halafu you serve God… lakini ilikuwa ngumu. Nikaona wacha tuu nikuwe news anchor I do what I wanted to do. I really wanted to be a nun maybe Ivanna [my daugher] will be a nun.”

And the curvy entrepreneur explained that decorated veteran news anchor Catherine Kasavuli was her role model;

“I always wanted to be Catherine Kasavuli. I’d watch the news just to see her. I interviewed on her KTN. When I saw her I got so nervous. She was so sweet to me. it was one of my best shows,” she said.

Female TV anchors from the past and where they are now

American actress Eva Mendes also gave up her dream of being a nun so she could fulfill her promise to buy her mother a house.

She had wanted to join a convent and devote her life to the Catholic Church but changed her mind when she discovered nuns didn’t get paid.

Kenyan entertainers who have thrived despite Covid-19 restrictions

Covid-19 has been a tough period for most Kenyans. While the health factor cannot be understated, the financial impact can be seen with many Kenyans losing their jobs in an economy that was already reeling from a terrible 2019.

But there are those entertainers who have not let the pandemic limit but have in fact grown them. By growth, it can either be financial or with their brand which can be leveraged when some of the restrictions the pandemic has caused are removed.

Let’s begin:

Willy Paul

The “Nikune” singer is not a happy man at the moment. Why? The news that a recently released audit report indicated that the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK), Performers Rights Society of Kenya (PRISK) and Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP) could have been misappropriating funds meant for artists.

Good night my people.. kura tunazo!!

A post shared by W.I.L.L.Y.P.O.Z.Z.E (@willy.paul.msafi) on

While Willy might not be making the money he rightly deserves, the musician has been hard at work releasing songs at a high rate with collabos with the likes of Bien and Nadia Mukami, resulting in an increase in his clout and fame.

And the proof is in the pudding with many streaming apps showing that his songs consistently top the airwaves.

Khaligraph Jones

This is another artiste whose clout and brand have increased this year. The “Mazishi” musician is one of the few “old-school” rappers who has maintained his brand of great lyrics, great beats during the gengetone revolution that has been taking over the country.

Khaligraph like Willy Paul has been hard at work releasing hit song after hit song with the rapper topping the charts with 3 bangers this year.

Had it not been for the Covid-19 restrictions, I believe that the rapper would be in a lot of demand for live music shows.|

Sauti Sol

The band who is arguably Africa’s biggest launched their hugely successful virtual album, Midnight Train last month. The concert set Kenyan records and showed the brand affinity and sway the group has.

The Afropop group curated a virtual experience with a record-breaking worth of 2 stadia viewers tuning in, with more than 95,000 fans watching the Livestream at the comforts of their homes, all around the world.

It is estimated that the group would have sold close to Sh. 100,000,000 worth of tickets had they done a live show with an average ticket price of Sh. 1000.


Probably the person who has had the best year so far. The comedian who was fired from his job at Milele FM bounced back quickly with a job lined at for him at Kiss FM.

But that still doesn’t take the cake, his YouTube show, BonganaJalas, has been a cash-cow for him with the celeb revealing that he had made millions in revenue from it.

Betty Kyallo

Betty also resigned from her job at K24 in May 31st. While some might have thought that she was down and out, Betty had a surprise for them.

Not only did she re-launch her salon Flair by Betty at a cost of Sh. 4 million, she also bought herself a 2019 Porsche Cayenne and an apartment at what the 88, Nairobi’s premium 44-floor apartment in Upperhill.

The apartment will be the tallest residential building in Sub-Saharan Africa once it is completed in 3 years’ time.

Love magic! Secret love formula between Dennis Okari and new bae

Dennis Okari popped the question on Saturday asking Joy Naomi if she would love to spend the rest of her life with him.

Pundits are now drawing comparisons between his first engagement to Betty Kyallo and this recent engagement.

Here are some of the pointers.

The second proposal was top secret not to be publicised.
Okari proposed to Joy Naomi in a surprise dinner where only family and very close friends were invited.

His first proposal to TV queen Betty Kyallo was carried out during a holiday in Mombasa.

According to sources,

“Dennis took her to Mombasa. They went to south coast’s Swahili Beach Hotel. He informed everyone about it and for two days tourists were just staring at Betty. He proposed at the poolside as a Maasai moran accompanied by two white twin girls carried the plate of roses surrounding the ring. It was mind blowing,” said our source.

Secret to marriage? Kabi and Milly wa Jesus spill the beans

Later the media reports indicate that the couple did gush about their engagement.

“I will not deny nor confirm this story but I will let you know soon,” Betty told a section of the media..

Dennis on the other hand hinted the possibility of the wedding but declined to give more details.

“We are still planning and we will let you know as soon as all is ready,” he said.

The traditional wedding went swimmingly without any drama

Okari’s traditional wedding in ukambani – Joy Naomi’s parents home – is said to have gone smoothly. No hitches at all.

That was not the case with Betty’s ruracio.

“When we started preparations for the traditional wedding, the cracks started to show. A week and a half to the ceremony, certain things about me were said by my partner’s family, and my family found out. They weren’t happy,” Betty narrated to True Love.

Adding, “I needed to find out what time their entourage would arrive. But he did not pick up my call. I tired calling him again after an hour and once again it went unanswered.”

Betty’s parents tried to contact Okari which saw their calls go unanswered too.

“At 3pm, when we tried to call again, all their phones were off. By the time the sun was going down, it was obvious that I had been stood up on my traditional wedding.”

Radio presenter’s son talks about struggle to finish school

All this time, Betty’s mother had invited almost 250 friends from her chama, they had used lots of money to prepare for the traditional wedding.

“My dad wanted to go and tell everyone what was happening, but i told him that i would go. I started by thanking them for coming and then i told them that things did not work out. I would sense that nobody understood what I was talking about, but I let them know that I was grateful to have them home since we had not connected for a long time.”

Parents love the new fiance

Going by the attendance at the engagement dinner, both Okari and Joy Naomi’s family seem to get along.

Again, this was the missing ingredient in Betty’s love life with Okari.

Everybody in her family wanted her to break up with Okari after what he had put her through. Three years down the line, pregnant Betty Kyallo would then go back to Okari as she talked to him behind her family’s back.

The two agreed that when their daughter turned one year, they would do a second traditional wedding even though Betty felt that she was not being protected by Okari when it came to his family’s side.

This time round, the traditional wedding was attended by only ten people. Betty explained,

“We then decided that when Ivanna turned one, we would have the wedding. The second traditional wedding leading up to this day was attended by only 10 people. My mum and dad were the only ones present from my from of the family. But ultimately, it was not the marriage ceremony I had dreamed of.”

The bride-to-be is sure of her decision

Joy Naomi was sure of her answer to Okari when she said, “Yes!” and hugged him tightly as the room burst out in cheers and ululation. The engagement dinner saw Okari get vulnerable and ask Joy:

“The answer that I will get today will be etched in my memories for as long as I live.
I will love you with all the wisdom that God will give me and not just to love you but also to love Him as well and to serve His people.”

Mystery of man accused of killing wife, ‘We don’t know how he was suddenly got rich!’

As for Betty, she had doubts from day one. She didn’t want the wedding nor the marriage but because of the “power couple” image they had created for the public, she agreed.

Betty said in a past interview:

“I felt it was still very premature and we had no story to tell. I was just learning the ropes and the idea of getting married was also just settling in. So I wasn’t sure if our story would have depth. You can imagine being engaged at 23, what do you know? But when you are in love, you easily get influenced by what your partner thinks and feels. And so Dennis managed to convince me to take the opportunity.”

We wish the happy couple the best in their impending nuptials.

Let any man who has sponsored me come out! Betty Kyallo fires back amid rumours

Ex-K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo has had some memorable relationships in the past. The bubbly media personality was married to NTV presenter Dennis Okari in a short-lived 6-month marriage.

But the next man she was linked to is the one that really made the public become more interested in the “cult” of Betty; that is the Mombasa governor, Ali Hassan Joho aka 001.

That sordid and torrid affair although never confirmed by the governor himself cemented Betty as a woman who only dates the high and mighty in our society.

But while that might be admired by some, others attribute some of the successes she has had in her life. Betty recently relaunched her salon Flair by Betty, something she said cost her sh 4 million and with that came some rumours about the source of her funds.

Rumours that came despite the fact that Betty had already explained that her mother had been her main benefactor in establishing the salon.

What is money!? Betty Kyallo buys posh apartment at Sub-Saharan Africa’s tallest building

This week Betty decided to confront the offending rumours about the source of her wealth, saying that she has worked for everything she owns.

“Everything that I have, I work for it. The apartment, the land, everything I work for it. Let me tell you guys its not about having money, it’s about planning. Most of these things I have I get them because I have great relationships with my banks,” she said.

Betty also addressed the rumours that her money comes from sponsors, saying that those rumour-mongers want to see her fail and if there is any sponsor who has bought her anything, they should come out.

“They think BK ako na doo zimekaa kwa bank, No. I take myself out there, introduce myself to people confidently to sell my dream to somebody I think might help and not a Budesko. Most people out there just want to shun your dream, your success and pull you down by just saying huyu ako tu na mabudesko. Bro, let any budesko who’s bought me anything come forward and say something coz they aren’t there,” said the former News anchor.

She called on young girls not to be fooled that there is someone behind her current success and that it is out of pure hard work.

“I really work hard. Let me not lie to you girls, if you are seeing this and think BK has all this because she was a news anchor so everybody is throwing themselves at her, its not true. Don’t think BK is just getting her things coz she has a budesko, there’s no budesko who sponsored anything that I have now. It’s all about my hard work, persistence and confidence in approaching life head on and believing in myself,” added Betty Kyallo.

What is money!? Betty Kyallo buys posh apartment at Sub-Saharan Africa’s tallest building

Betty Kyallo has had a fascinating year as far as her career and finances are involved. The mother of one resigned from her job at K24 in late May just before the company purged its employee rota.

But things were not as grim as they seemed with the journalist soon after relaunching her salon, Flair by Betty. That wasn’t all, Betty started going hard on her personal YouTube channel where she shared tidbits and factoids about her life.

Clearly leaving K24 had been good for her-sort of like a new wind underneath her wings. But it seems that we didn’t know just how well Betty was doing, something she let her fans in on in her latest YouTube episode.

In it, the bubbly personality revealed that she had bought a new house at the 88, Nairobi’s premium 44-floor apartment in Upperhill.

The apartment will be the tallest residential building in Sub-Saharan Africa once it is completed in 3 years’ time. It will include premium serviced apartments, with different options like Studio apartments, 1 and 2 bedroom fully furnished executive apartments; 2 bedroom executive-plus apartments; duplex junior penthouses and Lordship penthouses at the top.

Jonathan the CEO of the development who spoke to Betty said that the location was chosen for the simple reason that they were targetting people who worked in the Upper Hill area.

“We have special offers for the next two months. We have sold 55 apartments already. In total, we have 300 apartments and I want to get halfway 150 and then I stop selling.”

Helipad, VIP lounge, bar, kids area, swimming pool, talk of any amenities that can be found in the queen’s palace, they are found in the apartments. The apartments are fitted with washing machines, dishwashers, fireplace, etc.

Betty chose the 2 bedroom executive-plus apartments on the 34th floor and was asked to pay Sh100k for reservation. This purchase comes after the curvy journalist bought a 2019 Porsche Cayenne SUV days after she quit her anchor job at K24.

The car goes for $66,750 (Sh7.1 million), including the $1,050 destination charge. And people say that Covid has hurt people’s pockets!? Betty is clearly bucking that trend.

You will be my running mate – “Somali Bae” tells Betty Kyallo after expressing political ambitions

Betty Kyallo seems to have no boundaries for what she can do. The curvy and bubbly mother of one who started out as a journalist has moved on to other pursuits like blogging on her YouTube channel and starting her own posh salon.

Betty has taken the old saying, “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one,” to heart.

Betty Kyallo smiling

And despite all the accomplishments she has had in her life, it seems that the Flair by Betty CEO still has more dreams. Miss Kyallo who had spent the last week in the Coastal region holidaying has come back with a passion to do more.

And what could that be? The former KTN TV host has declared an interest to vie for a political seat one of these fine days.

And her motivation is US Senator Kamala Harris who was nominated a few days ago as the running mate of US Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden in the next US elections.

Kamala now stands as the first black female to take up such position in the United States of America. Betty has taken her inspiration from Miss Kamala and boldly declared her intentions on her Instagram page;

This is AMAZING! First Black Female to be nominated as Running Mate @kamalaharris ✅✅✅ this is giving me motivation for Politics 👌🏾 It can be done! I will. I will succeed. Oh can I get an Amen! Super proud of her! Go Go!

And her fans and friends chimed in with her all-time BFF Sarah Mwangi being appointed as her campaign manager who promised to map a way out for her win.

Betty Kyallo is one of the few celebrities online who not only has a large following online but also seems to be able to ignore the constant trolling that happens from fans.

The mother of one has been in the news this year after she quit her K24 job and shortly afterward relaunched her posh salon.

The salon seems to be doing well and Betty normally reveals some of the personages that pass through as clients at the high-end boutique.

One of those people is politician Alinur Mohamed. The two have been spotted a couple of times these past few months hanging out together, something that normally elicits a lot of reactions from fans.

Why? When Ken Mijungu famously revealed earlier this year that Betty was secretly dating a Muslim man, Alinur was the man people thought fit the bill.

The two promptly denied the links and people swiftly moved on to speculate about who the man could be? But it seems that both Betty and Alinur love courting and stirring controversy.

The two left tongues wagging this week after the banter that they exchanged on Betty’s Instagram page. The curvy journalist and her sisters had taken a vacation to Malindi, with Betty posting some of the pictures on her Instagram page.

Her caption for one of the pictures read, “Today was a good day ✅.” And Alinur was ready with his trigger fingers responding to the message with one word, “Fam”

And Betty wasn’t playing around as she affirmed his earlier statement saying, “…mos Definitely.”

Just take care of Baba – Betty Kyallo reveals favorite messages after alleged ‘Dubai’ trip

Betty Kyallo is one woman who will always be in the public eye. Why? She is one of the most popular journalists in Kenya with a large social media following.

As such every movement in her life is studied with a fine-tooth comb. Last week this thesis was proved out when a suspicious female bag was spotted in a private jet carrying Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho as he traveled to Dubai.

The detectives came out in droves speculating that Betty might be back with the Governor. The bag was all the evidence they needed.

But it wasn’t to be as another more legitimate candidate emerged with Betty distancing herself from the fiasco showing receipts that she was in Kenya at the time.

That incident has become a highlight for the mother of one who is viewing it humorously. Talk about maturity and knowing how to handle negative spin.

The Flair by Betty CEO did so by highlighting the funniest comments that she saw when her name was trending at number one on Twitter, saying she couldn’t help it but burst into laughter.

In the latest episode of Betty Kyallo Lately, the journalist pointed out that her funniest comment was when somebody said

“Betty it doesn’t matter if you are en route to Dubai or already arrived in Dubai, just take care of Baba.” The curvy personality who has one of the most infectious smiles in Kenya was surprised that a bag could make someone trend Number one on Twitter.

She even promised to give her fans a detailed review of all the funniest comments she saw that day.

“Last week nimetrend the whole day, I was just watching that trend and it was the funniest thing I have ever seen this year. Yaani the comments I was seeing, I will review most of those comments and tell you what I thought about them.”

She added,

“The comments were funny, I was just reading them and I was laughing my a** off, but am gonna do a special about it, coz sometimes when am trending. I read some of those things and I am like hawa watu wameona tu niko a handbag inakaa ivo. I never knew like a handbag can make somebody trend the whole day on Twitter at number one…”

Betty Kyallo and alleged ‘Somali Guy’ lover spotted together looking gorgeous (photo)

Betty Kyallo ushered in 2020 with stories circulating about a certain Somali guy that she was allegedly dating. The information was revealed by Ken Mijungu when Betty and her ex husband were having their public feud.

Since then, rumours and sightings emerged about who that Somali guy could be. Betty herself kept that piece of information close to the chest.

The early bet, however, was a certain Somali man called Hon. Alinur Mohamed, who is an aspiring businessman and politician.

Alinur strenuously denied the claims by eager Kenyans at the time forcing netizens to shift their focus to other quarters like the photo below.

But it seems that the politician doesn’t mind being the subject of speculation as witnessed with his most recent action. Alinur posted an image of himself with Betty as he visited her re-launched salon Flair by Betty yesterday.

The two looked dapper for the cameras and one could see the chemistry oozing from the image. Alinur captioned the photo on his Instagram page the following;

“Was delighted to spend the better part of today’s evening with @bettymuteikyallo at her place. Was glad to interact with her. Betty is one of those ordinary women doing extraordinary things in our society. Like many other women, she has had to beat many odds to reach this far.”

Betty returned the compliment telling the politician to visit her business in the near future. “Aaaaaw thank you for the kind words Alinur … It was so nice having you around. Come back soon. 😊😊.” Betty said.

The comment section was filled with innuendo and excited Kenyans postulating about the nature of their relationship with many using the phrase “Somali Guy” to make their point. Some of those comments are below:

I want a chunky and divorced man – Betty Kyallo discloses ideal husband

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.”

Betty Kyallo finally introduces her wonderful father to Kenyans (photo)

Betty Kyallo is one of the most open celebrities in Kenya. The always smiling and positive spirit shares most details about her private life especially as far as her family is concerned.

The one area that she is more secretive about is the men that she dates. That she keeps under wraps leading to a lot of speculation as to whom she is dating at any particular point. I digress.

One person that Betty proudly shares on her social media pages is her mother Julia Ngei, someone she admires deeply, often attributing her success to her mother.

But while her mother and sisters are a fixture on her updates, one person who has never made it has been her father, with some wondering why that was?

Was it that they were estranged, was he not around (dead?) or was he just averse to being out in the public domain? Well, wait no more!!

Betty finally decided to unleash her father on her adoring fans. The media personality explained that her dad had paid her a visit at her relaunched beauty salon, Flair By Betty and left her with many blessings.

“My Dad came and just left us with immense Blessings! Thank you daddy! He also got Flaired Up! ✅” reads Betty Kyallo’s caption.

3 years ago, Betty disclosed that her parents separated when she was a young child.

“There’s a time when my mum and dad separated for some time and so my mum was basically taking care of us and therefore it was really hard … but anyway you rise above that,” Betty told a local publication.

This story reminds me of the stark contrast between Betty Kyallo and Jacque Maribe. While Betty loves showing off her mother, Jacque is clearly a daddies girl and posts her father liberally on her Instagram page.

Betty Kyallo finally speaks after being romantically linked to Joho again (video)

Betty Kyallo was in the headlines yesterday after netizens contemplated whether she was back together with a certain governor from the coast.

The Flair by Betty owner was the subject of speculation after a photo emerged of Ali Hassan Joho and Junet Mohamed flying together in a private jet.

That the two who were in a plush and glitzy private jet amazed many Kenyans but what truly took the cake was a certain handbag in the photos distributed online that became the subject of so many conspiracy theories.

Spotted on a plane, Joho was in the company of Suna East MP, Junet Mohamed as they took off to see former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga in Dubai following his recent surgery.

The conjecture was that former K24 presenter Betty was the owner of the bag as she had been pictured before in the past with it.

The rumours swirled online and it became a trending topic until Betty had to come clean on the issue. She wondered how one minute she was in her salon at Kilimani and the next, she was purportedly on a flight to Dubai.

“Hey…wassup people! I hear I’m in Dubai. Eh! You Guys! I’m not in Dubai. Actually I’m going to have some delicious nyama choma mahn…owkay? Yah! I love Kenya baby!”

She also explained that she had no time to be globe-trotting as she had just re-launched her beauty parlour also dismising claims that she wasn’t in the business of hoping from man to another like most Kenyans think of her.

“You know…I have a business to run! I can’t be galavanting everywhere. Like you guys…I’m not in Dubai. So chill!”

And Betty was vindicated after another photo of the trip emerged showing the true owner of the bag. It is below:

Betty Kyallo’s younger sister, Mercy Kyallo might be much less popular than her but that doesn’t mean that her movements aren’t closely monitored.

Mercy, who not only closely resembles her older sister, also has a stubborn and fierce personality to her that compliments Betty’s calm and bubbly demeanor.

The two are as thick as thieves and know intimate details about each other that I think would make some blush. But that isn’t the point of all my blathering.

What is? Why wasn’t the Yallo Leather CEO at her niece Ivanna’s birthday or the re-launch of Betty’s star-studded salon launch? That is something that keen observers noted and wondered whether the sisters were beefing?

“Well, I haven’t spoken to him in such a long time. But there is no bad blood. I’m happy to see him in our lives and the life of his child and it is obviously so encouraging and beautiful.”

“I knew I was going to take a risk but I was ready to do it especially during this Covid-19 pandemic. I came here in a Monday with my manager (This place had a rent sign for like a year but no one had seen it) I met my landlord and he asked for 3 months deposit to be paid within two weeks but I didn’t have the money. However later on she learnt that other clients came in with blank Cheques hoping to rent the house; but the landlord chose to wait for BK who later returned with the full amount!”
