JB Masanduku sets a very special date to marry his fiancée

In three months time, comedian JB Masanduku will say ‘I Do’ to his new love.

Comedian JB Masanduku’s wedding plans are all set. JB was to wed his fiancée Jackie Karanja during her birthday on August 24, but has postponed it to November 11.

“That is my late mum’s birthday and I want to honour her as I honour the person I love,” JB told Word Is. He says his fiancée always speaks about how she would have wanted to meet her.

“I have talked to my people and the plans are all set. She chose to honour my mum,” he said.


JB says his mother was the most generous person he knew and taught him that,

“Whenever there is a problem, I don’t need to be quick to react and that has helped me.”

Among the people he has invited to the wedding is Deputy President William Ruto. “Ruto was easy when I invited him,” he said.

Others include comedian Churchill, Teacher Wanjiku, DJ Shiti and TV presenter Betty Kyallo. The wedding will be purple-themed, and the comedy legends who worked with his father will attend.


JB and Jackie, an actor at a local TV station, met last year and paid dowry early this year.

“It was love at first sight because when I looked at her, I knew she was the one and she is a nice lady,” JB said.

She wrote

DR. Chandaria I know you are not a Christian but even Jesus turned water into wine in a wedding to allow the couple make merry at their wedding evening parry… billionaires are you so mean to throw a big wedding party for your friend’s and relatives to enjoy the fruits of ur labour …


.this is not a good example to the young couples being mocked for asking help to do a big community wedding… we all look forward to walk our kids down the aisle after graduation… this is the next right of passage actually traditionally and biblically ur parents should help pay dowry….youths msiogope kufanya big weddings na kama wewe hutaki kuchanga for a friends or relatives wedding please dont attend the wedding.. u dance and eat like nobody’s business. even Jesus changad for a wedding

Dear KOT, does the sound of a ‘budget’ wedding make you cringe?

‘You have married a hardworking woman,’ Uhuru Kenyatta praises Anne Waiguru on wedding day

Her fans reacted differently
He has done no mistake.. We are all at liberty to live our lives how we deem fit. He wanted his marriage officiated that way…he did not ask anyone to emulate him…who died and crowned us judges??kila mtu aishi atakavyo.simple.
I agree with you and him. In short, live and let live. Wale wanataka kuchangia wenzao wachange. Wale hawataki wasichange. Wale wanataka ndoa kubwa wafanye. Wale wa “come-we-figure-this-out-together” pia wajibambe. Let’s accommodate everyone’s decisions. That way, we live peaceably with all.

Kila mtu apambane na hali yake, kwanza wale wa kuweka watu kwa committee za harusi na kuwekewa targets without consent.

8 Lessons Dj Soxxy’s wife has learnt in marriage

DJ Soxxy and wife Ciiku wa soxxy have celebrated their 8th year in marriage with a trip to Dubai.

They are one of the celebrity couples who have given other young couples something to admire in marriage.

Ciiku wa Soxxy took to her social media to pen a long beautiful message to hubby which read;

#tbt❤️ To 8years ago when I chose to stick by this guy @djsoxxy..

Before I got married, I read somewhere ‘marriage is not for the faint of heart’ and I thought kwani how hard is marriage..


It’s the only institution you get a certificate before you even start the course….

Some of you have inboxed me and requested I do my 8 lessons in 8years and I will take up the challenge..

May it be interactive and let’s all learn from each other…

Look out for my next post #1of8 
#8in8 #family #marriagelessons#marriageisworkbutworthit#marriageshouldthrivenotsurvive


The long lesson post read,

I started my marriage journey by standing in front of God and man. So God should always be an important person in your marriage. Looking back and seeing the toughest bumps we have crossed or overcome.. I doubt we would still be standing were it not for God. 

It’s important for you as the wife to have your own spiritual nourishment, for the husband his own, for the 2 of you together, for the children individually and for the whole family together.

Prayer has calmed me when all I wanted to do was yell, prayer has sorted out stuff even before I knew what was coming my way and prayer has healed us when we didn’t know whether healing would occur. So I can’t emphasize this enough… Pray, seek God all the time. 

Some lady contacted me asking me how can I make my husband do date nights with me and I told her you can’t make or change him, pray about it.

I could tell that’s not the answer she wanted to hear, she contacted me around 3/4 months later she prayed about it everyday and God started moving and they were doing their 3rd date night.

Guess we love to complicate things, overthink, over analyze.. Relax and just Put God in it… #1of8#marriageshouldthrivenotsurvive#marriageworks#marriageisworkbutworthit

Speaking to Word Is on Friday, he said, “I will be having the wedding but about the progress, I have left my fiancée to do the planning.”

Bien went on his knee at Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The African vocal star made sure they had privacy. He hired an entire cinema hall at the mall and made sure only a few friends witnessed the proposal.

“I had previously told some of my girlfriend’s family members and her close friends to do a video saying why they love her. Every one of them said a beautiful thing about her, and I made a collage video from their videos,” Bien said in a previous interview with Word Is.

“It was dark so she could not see where we were seated. The movie started and the first video that appeared was from her father, followed by the other videos of her friends. And that is when I walked over,” Bien said., adding that he had also composed a love song for his four-year girlfriend.

A day after he proposed, Bien for the first time shared a few details on how he met his love.


“One day I met a girl outside a club on museum hill,” he posted on Instagram.

“She was hanging out with @emmanueljambo and I thought to myself ‘wow she’s hot as hell.’ About a month later we bumped into each other again at a party and had a conversation. I was mind blown. I had never met a better combination of beauty and brains. She has a heart of gold. My niggah, my ride or die, my shoulder to cry.”

Bien will be the second member of the boy band Sauti Sol to marry after guitarist Polycarp Otieno walked down the aisle with his Burundian girlfriend Lady Mandi last year.

Husbands and wives reveal the BRUTAL SECRETS they keep from each other



A number of married people have revealed the biggest secrets they keep from their spouse.

As part of its Marriage: An Investigation series, The Cut asked a total of 16 married people to reveal the deepest, darkest secrets they keep from their partners.

Not knowing what their partner does for a living, despising their mother-in-law and stealing money from their significant other were among the responses given to the publication.

43-year-old Anton, who has been married for five years, said he never told his wife how much he loved the woman he cheated on her with.

He said: ‘My wife knows I had an affair, but doesn’t know how much I loved the woman I cheated on her with.’

Married for 40 years, Laurel, 65, said she regularly steals money from her husband without him knowing.

‘I’ve always stolen small amounts of cash from my husband and hidden it. I once got up to $1,300 and bought a couch,’ she said.

Another respondent, Vincent, who has been married for 18 years, said he ‘stalks’ his partner’s emails, texts, and bank account.

‘On some days I follow her every move,’ the 60-year-old added.

Another respondent, Panos, said they lied about the cost of their wedding.

The 39-year-old, who has been married for just two years, said: ‘I lied to my husband about how much our wedding cost. It cost close to six figures. He thinks it cost half that.’

‘I buy and sell things on eBay all night while she’s sleeping,’ 35-year-old Avi revealed about his partner of six years.

A reoccurring theme in some of the respondents’ answers revolved around their loves lives.

‘I don’t tell my husband how many pregnancy tests I take each month. We’ve been trying to get pregnant for two years, and I take the tests compulsively,’ 33-year-old Andrea, who has been married for seven years, said.

Alexa, 30, who has been married to her partner for two years, said: ‘I pretend I have a seven-day period so I can avoid sex a little longer.’

‘When we met, I told my mother and sister and all my friends about his big penis,’ added a respondent named Carolina, 55, who has been married for 20 years. 

50-year-old Jeff said he ‘despises’ his wife’s mother, while Dana, 43, said she ‘refuses’ to tell her husband about a threesome she had.

Dana, who has been married for six years, said:

‘I refuse to tell my husband the details of my threesome. I won’t say who it was with, or when it was, other than it was before we met.’

The Sh14billion marriage proposal package that will make you drop your jaw

Wealthy and still single?  A French wedding proposal planner has put together a marriage package worth Sh14Billion to be done in the moon.

Whoever wants the package will do it while flying around the moon.

Former mother-in-law actress Oliver gets engaged to her new bae

The ultimate goal of the Paris-based agency being to “stage the craziest and most outstanding marriage proposal of the last 13.8 billion years“.

Here’s the program, according to an article published on the website:

– Twelve weeks of pre-requisite technical and physical training.
– Takeoff on D-Day from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
– Richard Strauss’s “Thus spoke Zarathustra, Op.30” (Theme from 2001 Space Odyssey) resounding in the two space tourists’ helmets when the first effects of weightlessness are felt.
– Arrival in lunar orbit, three days later, flying over the satellite’s grayish surface at only 200/300 kilometers altitude.
– Cut-off of all communication with Earth for around thirty minutes while the capsule flies over the dark side of the Moon.
– The Frank Sinatra song “Fly Me to the Moon” played halfway through the orbital flight, allowing the suitor to make his marriage proposal far from any form of human life (engagement ring secretly hidden in his spacesuit).

Harusi tunayo! Grace Msalame announces that she is now engaged!

– A spectacular Earth-rise seen from behind the lunar craters and return trip of nearly four days before atmospheric re-entry and final touchdown.

The flight-plan followed by the space capsule will mirror that of the mythical Apollo 8 mission in 1968. The spacecraft, traveling at a speed of up to 38,000 km/h, will be equipped with eight cameras allowing the couple to immortalize their entry into the history of the conquest of space and the conquest… of love!

‘HE’S NOT SOUTH AFRICAN’ Sarah Hassan Clears The Air On Her Husband’s Nationality And Name

Celebrated Kenyan actress Sarah Hassan aka Tanya recently walked down the aisle and said “I do” to the love of her life Martin Dale.

Sarah Hassan and her husband have been together since 2015 and in October of the same month, the reserved yet handsome man went down on one knee to ask his girlfriend, now wife, to marry him.

The lovebirds then relocated to the US after Tanya revealed that she was going to further her studies at the prestigious New York Film Academy as part of her journey to pursue a career in Hollywood.


Sarah and Ndale then came back to the country secretly where her friends and family surprised her with a bachelorette party and a few days later, the lovely couple would exchange vows in an elegant wedding ceremony at Karura Forest on February 25th.

The celebrated actress did not reveal any details on their honeymoon but from a recent photo on her social media, it looks like the newlyweds are back to the US and happier than ever.

EXQUISITE! Check Out These Behind The Scenes Videos And Photos Of Sarah Hassan’s Glorious Wedding Affair

Sarah Hassan has always kept her private life off the public radar and no one has information about her man, but a lot of people have been speculating that her hubby is a South African.
The other thing that most writers don’t get right is her husband’s second name, with other calling him Ndale or Ndela and it looks like Sarah Hassan has had enough of the confusion and speculation and decided to clear the air.

This happened when she saw a story on one of the local dailies that had called her Mrs.Ndela, at the same time, informing readers that they would relocate to South Africa where the hubby supposedly comes from, allegations Sarah has vehemently denied.

Sarah Hassan started by thanking the newspaper for the congratulatory message, then decided to correct a few issues;

So, I decided to just correct a few things that keep spiraling in the wrong direction.
1: The name is Dale not Ndela or Ndale.
2: He is NOT South African.
3: We are NOT relocating to South Africa
4: Our wedding footage/ rights to the footage has NOT been and will NOT be sold to a private production group!
#LoveAndLight 💜💜💜✌

There you have it ladies and gentlemen, the man is not South African.
