Hardships push straight Kenyan man into arms of foreign gay man on TikTok

It is as complicated as it sounds.

Harsh economic times pushed an anonymous straight Kenyan man with a girlfriend into being in a financial relationship with a gay foreigner who funded his lifestyle.

Now, the chicken has come home to roost. The consequence of his love for free money has turned him into a gamer, playing hide and seek with the gay foreigner who flew into Kenya to see him and engage in carnal relations.

In a now-viral confession, the anonymous man told an X (formerly Twitter) bigwig that he was at a loss of what to do because he was anxious and scared of the situation he found himself in.

“I am in a situation and I was wondering if you or your followers could help me with advice.  I am 23 years old, I am straight but early this year, I met a male mzungu (Caucasian) on TikTok and we started talking. He began financially helping me out, and I moved from my single room into a bedsitter. Right now I live in a one-bedroom, fully furnished. He is the one who pays all my bills. I can clearly come out and say he sends me more than Sh 15,000 a week, and at the end of the month, I tell him about my bills, and he pays them.

This guy is gay, and I am straight. After eight months, he flew to Kenya to visit me and his other friends, who we hung out with. But his main purpose was to come and see me. He has been here for two weeks now but I don’t know what to do since I am straight. I have a girlfriend who knows about all this is happening, but we haven’t done anything intimate with that man.

I was hoping you could help me ask your followers if I should submit to that guy because he is here for four weeks or I hide, and this will come with consequences. Right now I stay at home full time, and my M-Pesa always reads Sh 30,000. If it goes below that amount, I just alert him, and he tops up. Note that this mzungu also gave me money to buy a car on loan after he promised to help me pay for it monthly. I already took the car. Help me out. I don’t know what to do because I love my girlfriend so much, but at the same time, this is an opportunity considering how there are no jobs. What should I do?

We’ve already met with this mzungu but I always give him excuses that I don’t feel well, and he just says ‘it’s okay’. Right now, I told him I am at home so that I could get some time to think about this. Please help me out. Just want some advice from your people,” confessed the anonymous Kenyan man.

His confession went viral, and a section of Kenyans reacted differently. Many decried the hard economic times and how life problems could lead people to make bad decisions while others demanded to know the girlfriend’s position in this matter.

Others told off the anonymous man for leading on a gay man who gave him Sh 15,000 a week and thinking he could escape the expectations placed on him, while others told him to just sleep with the gay man and move on with life.
