Umenizoea! ‘Stop talking about me’ Anerlisa Muigai warns ex-husband Ben Pol
Tanzanian singer Ben Pol spoke to one of his country’s local media where he also touched on his failed marriage with Kenyan billionaire heiress, Anerlisa Muigai.
The two dated for a few years before tying the knot in lavish ceremonies in Kenya and Tanzania; and 9 months later, their marriage was over.
Ben Pol then claimed their marriage had been for social media aesthetics.
“If I am to be honest with you, if you removed the Instagram posts we used to put up about our marriage, there is nothing really good that I enjoyed or experienced about marriage like I see of other couples. For us, our marriage was pure aesthetics. It was all about taking pictures and writing colorful captions and nothing much. I don’t mean to demean anyone but in my opinion, I feel like I got into a situation to complete someone’s idea of being perfect,” Ben Pol told Millard Ayo according to a prior Nairobi News report on January 13, 2023.
Hours later, Anerlisa Muigai ripped Ben Pol apart when she went onto her Instagram stories to warn him off speaking about her, and dared him to release his messages he had been sending to her months after their divorce was finally granted and before his ‘Instagram marriage’ remarks.
“Ben, I see that umenizoea, and you’ve taken my silence for weakness…You’ve always had the right to tell the interviewer not to ask about me…why are you always making me look bad, yet undercover, you send me messages different from what you talk?? If you really are a man, I dare you to screenshot what you’ve been sending me since December 25, 2022 to January 4, 2023!! I have a lot to say about/show you, but I choose to be a lady. It’s simple!!! Stop talking about me!!!” said Anerlisa Muigai.
Anerlisa is currently in a relationship with Melvin Ibrahim and so one would wonder what Ben Pol has been sending her despite her relationship being public knowledge.
Ben Pol and Anerlisa were in a whirlwind relationship. At first, they kept it a secret for months before word hit the streets. They later spend time together in Kenya and Uganda, posting on Instagram about their relationship, their love for each other and how much they felt happy being together. So in love were they that Anerlisa featured as a video vixen in one of his hit songs, Kidani.
They would later break up after claims of disloyalty, disrespect and infidelity and Anerlisa returned home to Kenya. Anerlisa claimed disrespect while Ben Pol said he had ignored some red flags. It remains unknown what truly was the cause of the end of their short-lived marriage.
