“I feel like if I really want to know somebody, I owe it to myself to just kwenda pole pole sana,” she said, indicating her commitment not to settle for anything less than genuine love and understanding.

Betty also said her current bae has been supportive of her decision to keep their relationship low-key, which she views as a positive sign in their journey together.

“If my partner was not okay with us dating chini ya maji, it would be like a red flag. Because why do you wanna be known, why do you wanna be out there? So until maybe we get married or maybe after a few years, that’s when I would be comfortable putting them out there,” she said.

In the past, Betty has talked about previous lovers wanting to be out there to gain fame with her brand name.
