The love birds who recently tied the knot in a ceremony held at her rural home in Siaya confirmed the receiving the gifts and even did a video on the same.

Mwale is said to have handed Wode Maya a two-bedroomed apartment, alongside a one-bedroomed for his better half.

The apartments are part of the real estate business he is setting up in Western Kenya.

Wode Maya commands over 1m subscribers on YouTube while Miss Trudy has more than 300,000.

Their channels are popular for highlighting positive African stories.

Their private wedding was attended by Trudy’s family and relatives with Wode Maya flying into the country with six of his family and friends from Ghana, among them his uncle and pastor, who officiated their union.

In a video shared by the couple on YouTube, the love birds also share how they were gifted wedding rings by their fans.

“We spent only Sh120,000 (about $1000) on our wedding but God brought people who helped us with everything else,” Miss Trudy said.

In a past interview, Miss Trudy disclosed how she met Wode Maya via social media. “He sent me a DM (direct message) 4 years ago but I saw the message three months later. He was coming to Kenya to create content. By the time I saw the text he had gone back home.”

“He proposed in December. I had a feeling because the sister came and asked about my ring size but I wasn’t sure because she was also getting married. I thought she wanted to test my ring size for herself. We went to Kilimanjaro for 9 days and when we got to the peak he proposed.”
