Hush Hush Weddings: The New Cool Among Kenyan Celebrities

Every girls dream is to have a grand wedding that will mesmerize friends and foes alike. A convoy of limos, imported gowns and the works. All major TV stations in Kenya have introduced wedding show programs in their menu to satiate this thirst and give our yet to be married lasses ideas of how their wedding should look like. Emmy Kosgei wedding to Nigerian Pastor Anselm Madubuko was the talk of the town. Well, it seems Size 8 is not interested with the show of might when it comes to how ‘big my wedding was’. Privacy seems to be her byline. This is a trend fast gaining currency among Kenyan celebrities. Here are some of the big time celebrities whose wedding were devoid of pomp, color and fanfare…
Size 8 and DJ Mo
The duo got married in private wedding without the fanfare that is associated with celebrity weddings. One would imagine an artiste of Size 8 caliber throwing the mother of all weddings but that was not to be. But instead the awarding winning star went for a low key wedding with gospel honcho DJ Mo that was attended by family and the officiating bishop. A section of the media had reported that Size 8 and DJ Mo were leaving together long before the nuptials. The Mateke hitmaker has vehemently denied the rumors and instead said she wanted a private ceremony. Her wedding was preceded by bishops who included her father and with close family friends in attendance. She continues to churn hit after hit as is her norm.
JB and Tina Kaggia
Funny man JB finally said ‘I do’ to the love of his life Tina Kaggia. The celebrity couple seemed content to seal their union at the AG chambers. Tina Kaggia who is a radio presenter was in a simple floral dress while her Beau JB was in blazer, stripped shirt with jeans. This seems to be the latest trend with celebs shying away from grandiose weddings. The ceremony was attended by close friends and relatives of the couple. The two media personality plan to hold a proper wedding where family and friends will be invited early next year. According to The Standard, JB intimated that the reason behind the marriage was so that he could adopt Kaggia daughter Imani and this necessitated a legal union.
Chantelle and J Blessing
She toklezead in a big way and we expected her wedding to be equally bigger. Instead Chantelle and gospel number one video director settled for a private ceremony with only family and friends present. J Blessing being a gospel video director one would have expected for a massive Church wedding but instead the couple opted to solemnize their union in the AG chambers. 
Betty Bayo’s and Prophet Kanyiri
She is one of the finest female gospel artistes in the industry. Her hits Siyambonga and Eleventh Hour propelled her to national fame. Her wedding though was a private affair and she was so good at concealing it. According to The Star newspaper she could only describe her man as ‘a good man with a good heart’. It was rather shocking to learn that her husband was the controversial Prophet Kanyiri who has been fraudulently fleecing Kenyans their hard earned money through dubious miracles.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to hold an event. I highly recommend this place for any event you may be holding.
