Bien Amie Baraza, a member of the popular Kenyan music band Sauti Sol, finally tied the knot with his long-time Nigerian girlfriend Chiki Kuruka Onukwe.
The two lovebirds exchanged their vows in a private wedding ceremony held at a hotel in Lavington, Nairobi on Friday.
The low-key wedding ceremony was attended by a few invited guests among them Bien’s Sauti Sol bandmates; Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno.
Other guests included singers Nyamari Ongegu alias Nyashinski and David Mathenge aka Nameless among others.
“The wedding is at Lavington right and only a few celebs are invited. It is a very secret event with tight security. No gate crashers or media” a source told Classic FM.
The couple was set to marry last year but the wedding was pushed to this year because the bride’s family was not around. Bien, 32, proposed to Chiki, a dance choreographer, in February 2019 at a cinema in Westlands, Nairobi.
The two met soon after Chiki came to Kenya from the United Kingdom where her family lives. She was introduced to Bien by Kenyan fashion designer Emmanuel Jambo.
"We dated for a whole year before we decided to go public about our love affair. The only reason we decided to go public was for people to see that what we have is real. We did not want to go into stories of cheating, neither did we want to let people start suggesting that either of us had gotten a "sponsor"," said Chiki in a past interview.
