Philip Karanja Reveals He Was Warned About Kate That He’s Taking A Big Risk

They tied the knot last year in a colourful wedding ceremony, but Kate and Phil didn’t want it to look like a celebrity wedding, hence inviting only close friends and family.

The public didn’t even know they had tied the knot, only to see photos of the wedding going viral on social media.

But before they finally became husband and wife, Phil had to first approach this beautiful lady, hoping she’d be interested in him.

Phil and Kate actually met while working together but “I did not really notice her in the way that I do now, even though we spent a lot of time together on set,” he told True Love magazine.

It was in 2012 that Phil started noticing Kate and by 2013, he was sure that he wanted to be with her.

It was actually on the same day that Uhuru Kenyatta was sworn in for his first term as president, then I approached her. I told her that I was making it official, I wanted to take a risk with her,” he told the magazine.

Kate went ahead to reveal that Phil had once told him that “many people were warning him about me but that he was still going ahead and taking a very big risk with me.”
