While Kanyari might be loud and proud in his religious convictions, he has been a bit covert with what looks to be his new woman. He keeps on liking her images on Instagram at a rapid clip. Check her out below:
“Don’t think he is that man you wake up and ask him for everything. He helps kidogo but I believe as a woman you are not supposed to depend fully on men, so I provide for them. With an attitude like mine, unaumia coz not all men can provide without being reminded.”
The two apparently separated three years ago, after Betty realised that her husband had been running a false ministry. Asked if she misses her ex-husband, Betty said:
“I don’t miss Kanyari. I am so occupied with life and I even don’t follow up on what he does. I am enjoying the freedom of being single. Every marriage has issues. There are those you can stand but others you can’t.”
Lessons from her former marriage?
“It is every woman’s dream to have a family, but I learnt that it is good to never cover up for the wrong things just because of love. If it is not working, walk out. Don’t die because of what people will say after you walk out,”she said.
“I persevered so much because of fear, thinking it would work.
But it didn’t seem to work, and I thank God I came out alive,” Betty said.
She dismissed rumours that one of her children was not from her former marriage.
“It has been three years since I left and when the time comes, I will get married again to a good person, because I don’t want to find myself in a similar situation,” she said.
“I wish there was something I would have done to save the marriage, but I tried my best. All my kids are his but everyone has a right to say what they want. You can’t be affected if you know your truth.”
Gospel singer Betty Bayo is a proud mother of two. The estranged wife of controversial pastor Victor Kanyari is doing great careerwise after parting ways with him.
In a recent interview, Betty Bayo declared that she would never go back to self proclaimed prophet Dr. Kanyari, after all she went through while they were still together.
“You know what? I can’t really tell what life with him was like. We were both very busy people. Technically, we lived together for three years, but in reality that could be just one year. I was always at my mum’s place having ran away for one thing or the other. When it all blew up, we were living separately but hadn’t decided to end it,” she narrated.
The 11th Hour singer confessed she was in love with someone else though she co-parents with Kanyari.
“Yes, I am seeing someone. I am happy. If it works out or not, I will still be happy. I will still be Betty. I am wiser now. I do not cling to relationships. It is only that I am too beautiful to be single,” she explained adding that:
“We do co-parent. But I haven’t seen him for the last two years. But our children, aged two and five, have a good relationship with him. We have an arrangement that works for us. While I have my personal feelings about him and what our relationship was like, his children don’t have to know or be affected by that.”

To say Gospel singer Betty Bayo has been through challenges is an understatement.
Back in January she declared she would never go back to hubby Kanyari, after all the drama the gospel couple underwent following revelations he was ‘conning’ his flock.
Speaking to a US based TV, she narrated the whole story.
“AT FIRST I WAS SO WOUNDED WITH THE WHOLE ISSUE, AND AS YOU KNOW, NO ONE WOULD WANT TO BE IN THAT SITUATION WHERE EVERYONE IS LOOKING AT YOU AS A BAD PERSON, BUT SOMETIMES GOD USES SUCH SITUATIONS SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE CAN LEARN FROM YOUR ISSUE.”
“I DON’T THINK I WOULD GO BACK TO HIM BUT THAT IS A TOPIC NOT TO BE DISCUSSED BUT IF YOU ASK ME ABOUT MUSIC, I WOULD ANSWER BUT NOT ANYTHING ABOUT MY FAMILY BECAUSE I AM LIVING AND ENJOYING EVERYTHING IN GOD.”
Fast forward to March, and she confessed she was in love with someone else.
“YES I AM SEEING SOMEONE. I AM HAPPY. IF IT WORKS OUT OR NOT, I WILL STILL BE HAPPY. I WILL STILL BE BETTY. I AM WISER NOW. I DO NOT CLING TO RELATIONSHIPS. IT IS ONLY THAT I AM TOO BEAUTIFUL TO BE SINGLE.”
In a heart-warming message, she seems to be addressing these challenges once again, declaring;
Anger is such a wasted Emotion.
Half of the people you are angry with don’t know it and the other half don’t care about it.
So if you’re tempted to scream or rant at someone, we hope this piece of advice from the popular singer will sort you out.
A self-proclaimed prophet and healer Victor Kanyari hit headlines after he was exposed as a rogue man of God back in 2014.
In an interesting investigative piece that ran on KTN, Kanyari was exposed for allegedly conning innocent Kenyans in the name of performing miracles.
He trended for days leaving his family embarrassed but more than three years later, his wife by then, In a recent media interview, Betty Bayo revealed that she never watched the exposé, attributing it to a power blackout at her place when it was aired.
“There was a power blackout in my home on that day. And I did not watch it. Still haven’t,” said the 11th-hour singer.
“I deserve to save my data bundles for things that entertain me. And this is in the least bit not entertaining. Why would I watch it? I already know what was on it because everyone told me about it. And it is a sad story.”
Betty Bayo has moved on and when asked if she broke up with Kanyari immediately after the exposé, she said:
“I did not leave him immediately. It didn’t feel right to me to leave him in the mess. So I held on a little longer. And I had to forgive him. When I saw he was stable enough, I decided to leave. He had changed and become a better person but in my heart, nothing would stop me from leaving.”
Bayo went ahead to talk about her relationship with Kanyari, which she said was complicated.
“You know what? I can’t really tell what life with him was like. We were both very busy people. Technically, we lived together for three years, but in reality that could be just one year.
I was always at my mum’s place having ran away for one thing or the other. When it all blew up, we were living separately but hadn’t decided to end it,” she narrated.
Betty Bayo also opened up about them co-parenting, adding that she hasn’t seen the controversial pastor for quite a while.
“Yes we do co-parent. But I haven’t seen him for the last two years. But our children, aged two and five, have a good relationship with him. We have an arrangement that works for us. While I have my personal feelings about him and what our relationship was like, his children don’t have to know or be affected by that,” she revealed.
The mother of two talked about going back to shool soon to finish her psychology degree and she made it clear tha she’s seing someone.
“Yes I am seeing someone. I am happy. If it works out or not, I will still be happy. I will still be Betty. I am wiser now. I do not cling to relationships. It is only that I am too beautiful to be single.”
Betty has grown into a strong woman and she revealed that after Kanyari’s exposé, many thought her music career would end but she’s still strong.
“People thought that the fiasco would be the end of my career, but my fans never left me. They stood by me throughout the whole ordeal and I thank them because I emerged stronger. Before the incident, I never used to have musicians as friends, but after it happened the music fraternity came together to support me without judging me and now they are my closest friends. I have been slow to release songs because I had to take care of my child, but I am now in a position to focus more on producing and I will be releasing music soon.”
She said the whole drama taught her a lot of things and today she doesn’t live in regrets.
“Today, I don’t live in regrets. The information and the experience that I have can help somebody else. Sometimes you go through something for the sake of others. I thank God I did not learn my mistake when I was old. Some people realise that they made a mistake when they are 60. Can you imagine realising that you have been living with the wrong person for the last 40 years?.”
While her age mates are busy chasing sponsors to take them on exotic trips, buy for them latest phones and pay for their bedsitter rent in the city’s suburbs, Kanyari’s sister, Starlet Wahu is a smart one.
The daughter of controversial self-proclaimed prophetess Lucy Nduta is living life on the first lane. Unlike many children from Christian families, who live a conservative life, Kanyari’s sister is different. Hapana tambua wokovu!
Well, the petite figured lass shared photos of a mansion under construction on social media and it’s clear that she invests her money well compared to her fellow slay queens. The project named ‘Starlet Villas’ does not indicate whether it is for rent or it will be her residence.
Starlet, who has been rolling like a queen thanks to her moneyed boyfriend, is following in the footsteps of her brother, Victor Kanyari, whose palatial home along Kangundo road left the nation in shock
Here are photos of Starlet Wahu’s upcoming palace, check out.
Controversial city pastor Victor Kanyari is a special case. Unlike many men of the cloth, who hide under the name of God but are sinners, the self-proclaimed prophet is never afraid of showing us his true colours.
From touching his female congregants’ breasts in public to flaunting what he owns, Kanyari is always making controversial headlines.

“Let us support our sister, daughter, friend and favourite gospel artiste. God bless you and enlarge your territory as you plan to come. Everyone is invited,” Read the wordings on Betty Bayo’s baby shower poster.
A few weeks later, the Siyabonga hitmaker gave birth to a bouncing baby boy and she took to social media to announce the great news. She wrote;
“DOUBLE DOUBLE BLESSING. .. GOD THANKS FOR UR FAITHFULNESS SOO FAR SOO GOOD.”
