Bahati and Diana Marua clapback at Pastor Ezekiel
The Bahati’s have clapped back at Pastor Ezekiel Odero following his controversial comments advising men against marrying women named Diana.
The couple, Bahati and Diana Marua, known for their strong bond and successful marriage, took offense at the pastor’s remarks and chose to respond publicly.
In one of his recent sermons, Pastor Ezekiel Odero claimed that women named Diana are not suitable for marriage and tend to dominate their partners.
He expressed his opinion by stating:
“Ushawai kuona Diana yeyote kwa ndoa? Hakuna hata mmoja. Ukioa Diana ushi na yeye, yeye ndiye anakucontrol kama robot. Utaishi na Diana, she becomes the husband. Lakini wewe ndio uwe mume, Diana anaenda, hapo nimeongea ukweli”
(Have you ever seen any Diana in a marriage? Not even one. If you marry Diana, you live with her, and she controls you like a robot. You will live with Diana, and she becomes the husband. But you should be the husband, Diana goes. That’s where I’ve spoken the truth).
The controversial preacher also discouraged people from naming their children Diana, suggesting that the name carries a negative “spirit.”
“Usimpe mtoto wako jina Diana. Sababu akiolewa, utashare na watu. Diana anapendwa bila sababu hata kama hajui. Because the name carried the spirit.”
(Do not give your child the name Diana. Because if she gets married, you will share her with others. Diana is loved without reason, even if she doesn’t know. Because the name carries a spirit.)
Bahati was quick to question Pastor Odero’s credibility as a prophet, pointing out that he and Diana Marua have been married for seven years.
“Is this a true or false Prophet??? 🙆 Somebody tell this Pastor to stop misleading the Church. @Diana_Marua and I are celebrating 7 golden years of marriage this coming October 20. Dianas are the best!!!”
Diana Marua, on the other hand, accused Pastor Odero of being dishonest.
“Don’t be Married to Ezekiel’s!!! They will look at you straight in your eyes and lie! Is this the same Ezekiel that was part of the Shakahola massacre???”
