Engagements being called off is not news anymore. We take a look back at some of the celebrities whose long engagements never got to end in the altar.
Some of the individuals have however found love else where and are happily married. Here is the last
The comedian recently broke up with his girlfriend whom he had dated for three years, saying that
“People fall in and out of love, and maybe the plans I had for her did not work out.
We moved on because there is more to life than just love and relationships. People should stop speculating things, but instead let her move on with her life. She is free to be out there and get other people.
To be honest, we agreed that whatever we wanted to do together would not work out, and it was a peaceful agreement. Tulikua tunaenda Canaan tukapata mamba.”

4. Maribe and Jowie
On 30th June, Jowi went down on one knee and asked for Maribe’s hand in marriage, to which she said yes!
Among those who witnessed the romantic moment included her close pals Shiks Kapienga, Terryane Chebet.
The two kept us on our toes by constantly posting mushy mushy messages on their social media platforms before Jowie was arrested as a suspect in the murder of Monicah Kimani.
To make things worse, Maribe was also arrested for being an alibi. Currently, she is out on bond while Jowie is still in remand, by the look of things it is obvious the engagement is done.
Pendo got engaged to a mzungu guy in October this year. She revealed this information on her social media page on Instagram when she showed off an expensive engagement ring.
“I have spent time reading this. And some of it is true.(the borrowing of money) But I have NEVER told anyone my dad has cancer! Coming here (America) made me realize life here ain’t what we see and think there’s a dollar tree falling and people catch… being here for a couple of months has made me appreciate the hard work most of you guys .., (Kenyans in America) WORK SO HARD to take care of your families and to live the American dream.
I APOLOGIZE To anybody and everyone.. those I borrowed and those who lent me and I’ve not refunded. I take full responsibility and I am ashamed. Not that Some will care… but the truth is, there’s so much pressure being on tv to live a certain life but in real sense it’s shit crazy and I don’t want to speak for anyone else but it’s CRAZY being famous and BROKE! Comedy in kenya doesn’t pay and most..
MOST promoters here get shows for you later on they do not pay you end up just making money for them… I am NOT in anyway defending my actions… I am taking FULL RESPONSIBILITY of SOME of the accusations… and from the bottom of my heart… I am sorry, The very best in all your hustles.

Edwin O Osigro, who goes by the name Wilkins Fadhili on social media, recently found himself in a predicament after his suspicious dealings were exposed.
Fadhili, who is the CEO Fashion Torch Africa, describes himself as a brand strategist, developer, Forbes Africa Top 30 under 30 and Top 40 under 40.
Other than Larry Madowo, some of the big ‘clients’ listed on his website are Edith Kimani, Usain Bolt, Suzzie Beauty, Cold Stone Creamery, Collins Injera and Executive Water’s Anerlisa Muigai.
But his troubles started after he bragged on Twitter how he is working to position BBC Africa Business Editor, Larry Madowo, as a global brand.
However, Larry acted fast in not only disowning the claims but also said he neither knows nor has he ever met Fadhili.
The former NTV news anchor even threatened to take legal action on the tweep
Speaking about the whole issue during an interview with NRG Radio Fadhili said that everything was a mistake.
“I made a mistake of faking it till you make it and at that point while I was working all these posts about me working with Larry Madowo I was baiting these celebs.
I was in this situation where I was creating content that would come out in a way that I was working with these brands(people) so that if they feel that I have evaluated their brand well enough they would be willing to work with me.
I lied about my social media manager because I developed all the content myself.”
Wazir Benson Masubo Chacha caught the attention of many after being involved in a conning game involving Members of Parliament.
According to DCI boss George Kinoti at the time Chacha had used an ID of a former MP to open an Mpesa account.
“He used an ID number of a former member of parliament to register an M-Pesa account in the name of Sabina Wanjiku Chege. He did this in Donholm and we have all the details.”
Everly Munga, the owner of G spot Kenya, an online shop for dildos and s3x toys, shamed the socialite on social media saying Pendo had requisitioned for a vibrator which was delivered at her home address.
Ms Munga, a lawyer, revealed that when she called Pendo during delivery, she was told to leave the package with the gate guard and will receive the Sh5, 000 payment via M-Pesa.
A week later, Ms Munga had not received the payment, prompting Pendo to take to social media to address the issue.
“I’m not paying even a dime. I’m sure people didn’t know she sells vibrators and dildos and now she is making money from my branding. But she saw the best way is to put my photo and phone number on social media.”
“If we go to court, I will not pay anything because of defamation of character. Business is not handled that way. In fact, she is the one supposed to pay me. I’m not going to sue her, si ametengeneza business yake. Atafutemtumwingine basi.”
She concluded by saying that she won’t be changing her phone number and is going to pick all the calls she will be getting after her digits were exposed to the public.
In an earlier post on social media Kner who is engaged to a Kenyan woman identified as Elizabeth Waithira ,posted an ill thought post bragging about how he chose to buy a bike rather than fund her.
“I had the choice , either sponsor my ex b$tch in Kenya or buy the bike ..well my choice was clear, the bike . Now she must find an other sponsor for her nails ad hair and and .. .Only money for my daughter goes to Kenya but the b#tch is offline . “
It seems like hkitumbua kimeingia mchanga and the ‘sponsor’ has taken to social media to beg his baby mama for forgiveness after a nasty break up and wants them to be a good example to their daughter.
“Hey the nation . After a long dispute and thinking, I guess its time that I officially apologize to Elizabeth Waithera Maina with who I was married to and was planning to divorce her.
Emotions were high but the most important is that our daughter Chloe is well and i know Elizabeth will take good care of Chloe as she did before. Lets close that chapter and everyone live a happy life. We still are parents both but we don’t have to argue.
When you do a mistake in life you should also be able to say sorry after you recognize it . And i am sorry Elizabeth . Lets just live out lives and our daughter will look up to us as good parents. I suggest everyone who has children to not make them pay for our mistakes.”
Elizabeth is yet to give him a response,we never know he might even be a scam who wants to leave her kwa mataa just the same way he did to Pendo.
Socialite Pendo is currently at the Parklands police station for failing to pay a bill of Ksh 75,000 in a Westlands based hotel .
The actress who is well known for her acting stints in a local show ‘Nairobi Diaries’ is alleged to have been with her mzungu lover, Joseph Kner; the one who recently engaged her,Mr. Kner is said to have left her in their room with the bills and the socialite was stranded.

Mishi went off on her during the latest episode of Nairobi D. Pendo is under pressure to prove that she was not nyemelearing Mishi Dora’s bae, Ciggie.
It was ugly.
Pendo took to Insta-live to clear her name late last night.
“I’M HERE TO CLEAR MY NAME, DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT HAS TAKEN TO BUILD MY BRAND AND NAME?”
Asked if this latest scandal will see her leave the show or get fired.
“I’M NOT LEAVING THE SHOW. IS IT YOU THEY ARE PAYING OR IT IS ME? SITATOKA HAPA MPAKA ILE SIKU WATANIFUTA. UKIONA NIMETOKA HAPA JUA WAMENIFUTA.”

Pendo went ahead to explain how Ciggie ended up having her number, although in all honesty, if you Google Pendo you will find her number online from her saga a while back when she refused to pay for a dildo that was delivered to her doorstep.
Anyhow, I digress.
Pendo explained that, Ciggie went live on Instagram using her phone and later he took photos using Pendo phone.
Ciggie then input his number into Pendo’s phone and sent himself the photos.
Pendo said the only other time she spoke to Ciggie was when she was “asking about the camera and the charges. We did not talk again. Mishi, you should apologise to me. Vile alilia sana [On the show]. She is an actress.”
Adding that she is not worried that Mishi will fight her at the reunion,
“I DON’T CARE. IT IS JUST NOT THAT DEEP FOR ME. HATA YEYE ANAJUA AMEDANGANYA, I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT THAT, EVEN SHE KNOWS THAT DEEP DOWN IN HER HEART.”
To clarify further that she doesn’t care one aota for Ciggie, Pendo said,
“CIGGIE IS NOT MY TYPE, MANZE, HATA NI KAMA UMENITUSI.”
She then went ahead to say Mishi Dora has “self esteem” issues for thinking up an affair where there is none.
“CIGGIE IS NOT MY TYPE. SIONI KAMA MIMI NA MISHI WE CAN HAVE THE SAME TASTE IN MEN. WE ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.”
Ciggie described Pendo as “Waaaay prettier in person”.
