4 Kenyan celebrities in interracial relationships

It is very rewarding to love someone who is different from you in terms of race, culture, identity and religion. When we are open with each other, we can broaden each other’s perspectives, approach the world in different ways, and even find that there is a connection in our differences.

Unfortunately, interracial couples can still experience difficulties at times by virtue of the fact that racism exists in our society on a deep level. Ideally, love should have no bounds in this regard.

However, in reality, other people may harbour negativity or judgment about an interracial couple. Partners in an interracial marriage must take on these issues together while maintaining empathy and support for each other’s experiences.

Interracial couples may also reach conflicts when asserting their values if they differ from each other’s, based on racial or cultural identity. Nonetheless, some Kenyan celebrities have fought the odds stacked against interracial unions and found love in distant cultural settings.

In this article, we round up 4 such Kenyan couples that have not shied away from making their interracial relationship and/or marriage known to the world. 

Khaligraph Jones and Georgina Muteti

Among other celebrities, Khaligraph has stamped his name in the Kenyan entertainment industry as a phenomenal rapper and artiste, but what draws the attention of many of his fans is the fact that he has a beautiful Caribbean wife by the name of Georgina Muteti. 

She’s a famous Kenyan hairstylist and certified lifesaver who rose to prominence as the wife of Khaligraph, whose real name is Brian Ouko Omollo. Her father is of Kenyan descent, while her mother is of Italian descent. However, she is pretty secretive and has not revealed more details about her parents or siblings to the public. 

Tileh Pacbro and Martina Glez

Martina Glez and Tileh Pacbro have been together for two years and welcomed their first child in September 2021. The multi-talented Kenyan dancer proposed to his Spanish girlfriend in May 2021.
