One of Kenya’s biggest gospel artistes, Kevin Kioko whose stage name Bahati has become synonymous with the genre, is about to make a huge leap in his life.
The ‘Barua’ hitmaker recently left his fans scratching their heads and many fisilets nursing heart wounds after revealing that he will soon marry his prayer partner – Diana Marua.
The two will have their traditional wedding this month. It would have happened earlier but the singer, borrowing a cue from his fellow Kenyans, decided to put everything on hold until after the elections.
As reported earlier by Zipo.co.ke, the love birds started a thing when Marya liked Bahati’s several pictures on Instagram one cold night. The singer then did what any real fisi would, slide into the DM.
Shortly thereafter, Bahati asked Marua to co-star in the music video to his then new song ‘Mapenzi’. She played the role of his bride.
The two formed a bond and entered a relationship before coming out as lovers months later. They admitted recently that they have been dating for a year, since September 2016.
And just like any other normal couple, the two have fights too as revealed by Marua on her social media pages.
Marua who works for a respected dairy firm, wrote how Bahati always gets on her nerves but was quick to add that that doesn’t come in the way of their love.
“Y’all are just too much headache sometimes but it doesn’t make me love or appreciate you any less @morganbahati @bahatikenya Love you both unconditionally “She captioned the above photo.
