In a video that went viral early this week, the love-stricken man is seen standing at the doorstep of what appears to be a hostel room, singing melodiously to the ‘beat of his heart.’

Although details of the place where the romantic rendezvous took place remains unknown, it is has been reported that the guy decided to surprise his girlfriend in one campus ladies hostels.

In the video the woman is seem leaning on the edge of the door, apparently smitten by the jovial guitarist. The lyrics of the song too paint a picture of a man who is truly in love, as he matches his voice with the guitar’s tunes.

“My baby girl…” goes the song.

Valentine’s Day, celebrated globally on February 14 every year, is day for those who ascribe to it to show and spread love to significant people in their lives, more so those that they are romantically involved with.

But here in Kenya, Valentine’s Day has in recent years come under serious “threat” from the infamous Men’s Conference which is also marked on the same day every year. The conference provides a platform for male chauvinists to deliberate on issues affecting the boychild.

Preparations for this year’s conference are already in top gear under the leadership of veteran journalist Stephen Letoo, who is also the self-declared polygamous chair.

According to Letoo, men from across the country will congregate at Carnivore grounds in Nairobi for this year’s conference.

Previously, the Men’s Conference was organized by wealthy Uasin County by businessman and farmer, Mr Jackson Kibor, who is now deceased.
