The singer disclosed that he had a thing for the beautiful content creator when they were both in campus but at the time Ms Njiru was dating someone else which left him watching her from afar. He also confessed to having prayed deeply for Njiru’s relationship to fail so that he could get the chance with her.

“In KU she was pengting, but at the time she was dating someone else so I was given a ticket to go to the back and wait. But it was after campus that we took things a bit more seriously and I was praying for that relationship to end, very serious prayers,” said Cyco while speaking on Switch TV digital.

Cyco further disclosed that when they were both seeing other people, they had a thing for each other but chose not to pursue it out of respect for their then partners, but were also immediately drawn to each other after their relationships failed.

“When she was dating somebody else, I also went on to date somebody else so there was that tension between us but we did not want to explore it because we were both being respectful to our then partners. As soon as both relationships ended, we both gave each other calls almost immediately,” Cyco said.
