“I can’t be a housewife!” Betty Kyallo declares

One thing that’s as sure as the sun rising among celebrities is the sure smile that one will always find with media personality, Betty Kyallo.

The mother of one might be going through a bad patch but one would never know as the entrepreneur always has a smile, whatever and whenever the time.

In a recent interview, Betty reminded us of this admirable trait while speaking about her hopes of ever getting married, admitting that her hopes of getting married again are low.

Speaking in a recent interview, the KTN TV game show host said she is nowhere near getting married. Betty Kyallo explained that she still has a lot of personal goals to achieve before considering marriage.

“Mi nakaa kuwa wife material? Hiyo maneno ilinishinda kabisa, acha ningangane kiviangu. I can’t be a housewife and just sit there. I also have things I want to achieve,” she said.

Speaking of wife material, Betty was also expected to feature in Eric Omondi’s reality show. She explained that the show just wasn’t for her.

“Eric is my friend and I watched the show, but do you see how those girls dance? I do not know how to twerk. I also have a job to go to, a kid to take care of, so acha ningangane kiviangu,” she said.

This recent admission is a marked difference from her earlier stance in an interview she gave on her Instagram live in May last year.

“For a long time I didn’t want to get married after the divorce, but I think I know what went wrong and I know I can be better and I know what I need to look for in somebody. So I’m starting to warm up to the idea of marriage because for me it was a no,” she stated.

Kumbe! Betty Kyallo finally reveals why she always hides the men she is dating

Betty Kyallo is one of the most followed celebs in the country. And that makes sense as the mother of one is always encouraging her fans with her positive and bubbly nature.

But while she loves reaching out to fans through her popular Instagram page, Betty is still wary of sharing too much, especially as far as the men she is dating goes.

The 32-year-old media personality mostly shows just a watch, or shoes; she doesn’t reveal too much detail. A few years ago, Betty was rumoured to be dating former Somali Ambassador to Kenya Alinur Mohammed, however, the ‘Somalian bae’ said he is a happy family man and that Betty is just a friend.

Many have wondered why Betty keeps her men hidden with the same secrecy as the one Coca Cola uses for it’s secret recipe.

In an interview with Radio Jambo, Betty explained that the last time she showed her man on social media, things didn’t go well.

Ladies inboxed her man to confuse him. For now, Betty says she won’t show the man she’s currently with. She has also advised women to do the same. Additionally, Betty says she’s not planning to be married soon.

‘Siwaonyeshi juu ile siku niliwaonyesha ya mwisho, wacha madem waende kwa DM ya budesko. Ati mi ni mrembo kumshinda Betty. Madem wa Kenya by the way wachunge. Wakijua wako ni nani wanaenda kwa DM yake wanasema, ah, niangalie…. Unaachwa.”

Adding, “Usiwaonyeshe mtu wako. Onyesha mkono, onyesha saa, kanywele kidogo, mguu, socks… mwisho. Waonyeshe vile akona kiatu kubwa.”

Damn! Nairobi is no joke!

‘I prefer dating a divorced man,’ Betty Kyallo reveals marriage plans

Media personality Betty Kyallo has described the type of a man she is looking to get married to and start a family with.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Betty says she prefers getting attached to a divorcee.

You all remember that she has gone through divorce and that is the very reason she wants to marry one.

According to Betty Kyallo, after her divorce with ex-husband Dennis Okari, marriage was a no for her but it’s something she has been thinking about. She is considering getting married again and get another baby

She started the conversation saying all the hustles she is doing are for her daughter.

“For all people who say that we have sponsors, broo we hustle hard. I am out here hustling for Ivanna. I dont think am out here hustling for myself, coz me nimekula life and that is what we are here for, we go through life and then at the end of the day, is about our kids. Na nataka kengine so if there are potential bachelors,” she said.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Betty added;

“I am not sure if I actually would want a divorced guy, a single man or a widower. I am always pulling on that direction of a divorced guy because I think tunaelewana. Because I have been through it. I feel like when you have someone divorced is almost like they know when things go wrong and so they try and avoid them. But I know there are nice guys as well. But tutaona tukiendelea,” she said.

My biggest mistake was getting married too young – Betty Kyallo reveals

She then paused a question to other divorced mums asking who they would rather go for.

“A widower would try to replace you with their wife. A new person, will have so much expectations, nataka unipikie, sahii nimetoka kwa nyumba, I will be late back. And a day like on a Friday, will be working upto 10:00 pm, what time will I cook? I think a divorced guy, tukielewana we will be like usinichezee. You are a guy what do you think?

Tunatafta so guys come leteni applications,” she concluded.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Previously, Betty has always pointed out that she knows the things that went wrong in her previous marriage and she knows what she needs to look for in a partner.

“For a long time, I didn’t want to get married after the divorce, but I think I know what went wrong and I know I can be better. I know what I need to look for in somebody. So, I’m starting to warm up to the idea of marriage because for me it was a no. But for now, I find myself thinking okay, inaweza,” she said.

Adding that she would like to have more children because she wants her daughter Ivanna to have siblings.

“I want more kids because if I don’t give Ivanna another brother or sister atakuwa like yeah mommy talk to my hand because my ears ain’t listening.”

My biggest mistake was getting married too young – Betty Kyallo reveals

Betty Kyallo is one of the most popular celebrities we have in Kenya. The two reasons I can think of for that are her high-flying career and her personal life that has kept tongues wagging since she entered the spotlight.

Betty, who is rarely ever in a sad or down mood, has a persona that draws Kenyans to her – something that contributes to their desire to learn a lot about her life and the life lessons she has learned as a result.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Yesterday, the K24 anchor who has been offering anecdotes about her life, dished out more information that showed the self-reflection that she must have done about her life.

‘I definitely want more kids’ Betty Kyallo opens up on marriage and future plans

Betty revealed one of her biggest regrets in life during a question and answer session on her social media pages. The mother of one had been asked by a fan what she felt was her biggest mistake in life?

She responded by saying it was getting married at a young age. “I think it was getting married a bit young. I was 26 and I think I hadn’t seen my full potential, I hadn’t lived life, I hadn’t explored life by myself and there is no issue with that.”

“It wasn’t a mistake, mistake but if I was to redo that part of my life, probably, I would have waited a bit. I should have chilled, I should have waited,” she added.

Betty, however, decided to allay any fears that because hers didn’t work out did not mean others couldn’t.

“These are things for me. If you want to get married at 26, I mean, do you. I think now I’m more mature, I am more in touch with myself and now it’s easy to let in somebody because I have understood who I am,” she continued.

“When I get it tipsy, I normally call people. I call my mum, I call my ex-lovers, I call my friends who I don’t like. They are not friends but are people who act like friends but I don’t like them.”

“I call my exes. I have called a couple of them. I am like ‘Hey Pete, what is up?’ And it is like 1:47 a.m. and I tell them that the way we broke things off was not the best,” she adds noting that if one doesn’t work, she tries another.

Dennis Okari, the NTV anchor and a certain powerful politician are among the people that Betty is rumoured to have been involved with.

She added,

“First I call my mum and I am like ‘Mummy, thank you very much for birthing me.’ Mum is like, ‘Betty, it is 12:47 a.m. and you are waking me up?'” she narrates.

I was depressed for 2 months-Mercy Kyallo reveals after she lost her job

Mercy Kyallo is famous for being Betty Kyallo’s younger sister and also one of her most staunch defenders. But what many might not know about the vocal chocolate lady is that she has her own story to tell that isn’t attached to her more famous sister.

‘No negative energy’ Betty Kyallo shades haters after Dennis Okari, Ken Mijungu drama

One of those interesting anecdotes is that she was depressed for almost two months after losing her job. In a video she posted on her Instagram page Mercy explained how she had been in a fix after she had lost her job.

Mercy Kyallo

The Founder of Yallo Leather, an online brand that deals in leather goods, the CEO revealed that before she lost her job, she had a collection of twenty-three bags that were stocked in a shop in Village Market and she had only sold one at the time.

“I remember that fateful day I packed my things and I went home and I was depressed for like about two months not understanding where to go, what to do next…and even though I had done my first collection of 23 bags which were stocked in a shop at the Village market, I had only sold one, I had known the leather business and I was selling in the office one and one here and I did that all came to a stop when I lost my job. I was home and I was so depressed,” said Mercy in the video.

But Mercy wouldn’t let herself dwell in misery and started learning a lot of things from YouTube, the first one being finding a market where she would sell her goods.

The gritty woman was full of determination and advised upcoming business people to be open-minded and avoid having self-limiting beliefs that could hinder them from achieving their goals.

“You can have the best idea, Capital, you can have all the things you think you need to start a business but as long as those self-limiting beliefs still exist in you, you might never make a move towards those desires and to achieving your dreams. It started by me believing in myself, I believed in the thoughts I had, the dreams I had, the way I wanted to see my life and the future of the country and the continent . You can be a victim of your circumstances or a master of your destiny” added Mercy.

One happy family! Mercy Kyallo launches shop with father, mother and sisters in support!

Mercy Kyallo, the founder and CEO of Yallo leather opened a physical shop at the Rosslyn Riviera mall. Yallo, which is best known for handcrafted leather bags held an exclusive private launch at the premises yesterday.

The event saw the presence of media personalities media, influencers and guests. Mercy Kyallo together with her team cut the ribbon to officially open the shop.

What fascinated me about the launch however was that Mercy was able to get her whole nuclear family to come for the launch. That means her father and mother, including her two sister’s Betty and Gloria came for the launch.

For those who don’t know, Mercy’s father and mother don’t live together anymore after splitting up sometime back. In a past interview, Mercy narrated her relationship with her father, saying,

“My dad went Abroad to look for greener pastures. That is when they parted, we struggled for a while but I thank God because He sustained us. My dad is still alive and I still talk to him despite him and my mum breaking up.” 

So for her to get them to come and support her together is a mean fete I would say. Check out more of the pictures of the launch below:

I have tried to be celibate! It’s hard-Betty Kyallo comes clean

Former K24 News Anchor Betty Mutei Kyallo is one of the most outspoken and open celebs in Kenya, something I like about her.

The mother of one isn’t afraid to reveal personal details about herself that some others would blush about even speaking about.

This week the bubbly celeb disclosed something that showed how real the Flair by Betty CEO is when she told her fans and followers to be celibate.

Maybe it was because she was speaking to her own sister Gloria and that’s why she was comfortable stating this private detail.

The two were playing the Hot Wings challenge game, where Gloria asked Betty,  “Do you ever get a dry spell? Answer yes or No Tumalize,” asked her sister Gloria, to which she responded saying, “Dry spell ya doo si sana… I have tried to be celibate, It’s hard.”

Does that mean she stopped trying to be celibate? And if so, I wonder who the lucky individual that she is knocking boots with is?

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

But that was not all, Betty also came clean on whether she would date someone younger than her saying, “age is just a number”.

She explained her answer by saying that in Hollywood, people get married to spouses who are even 20 years younger than them, and she doesn’t mind making her little Hollywood.

“Age ain’t nothing but a number… maturity is a choice. I think I can date someone younger… maybe we can leave each other with like two, three, four, seven years. There are people in Hollywood who get married to guys 20 years younger than them. I’m not saying this is Hollywood, but we can make our kind of Hollywood,” said Betty.

Betty Kyallo is one of the most beloved women in the country.

The celebrity has established herself as a premier journalist and is now working her way in the world of entrepreneurship with her salon Flair by Betty.

But while some might now only see the well-coiffed and power suit-wearing image that Betty presents, that doesn’t mean that the mother of one hasn’t come from far.

Betty who always has a happy-go-lucky smile has been through a lot before she established herself at the top of her game.

The curvy Miss Kyallo who was once a video vixen isn’t afraid to share tidbits with her fans and followers, showing them that the journey to fame and fortune is littered with struggle.

I always felt that I was not good enough, I was intimidated – Betty Kyallo opens up

The former K24 presenter recently shared an image of herself when she was young and on the come-up and boy, she hasn’t aged a day!

Her fans were ecstatic with many praising the lady who was formerly married to Dennis Okari exclaiming that she still looked as good today as she did in that photo.

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.

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

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.

View this post on Instagram

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 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.”

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.

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.

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

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.
