Sauti Sol´s Bien Aime Baraza and his fiancée, Chiki Kuruka had their nuptials early in the month but in an invites-only event that left many scarred.
The wedding dates in the first place, were meant to confuse the public and avoid giving any sorts of clues to individuals outside the couple´s inner circle.
Either way, the wedding went down as planned at the Pallet Cafe, Lavington, without the public´s involvement on their big day.
Many have since held grudges against them for lack of an invite to their major step in life. However, Bien categorically had this to tell them:
Only those who know me as Alusa, not Bien (were invited). My message to those who are mad at me because they were not invited is, they should hold their weddings and don´t invite me. I am no longer interested in attending weddings because I have attended so many of them. It was my way of celebrating my commitment to my wife.
Fortunate enough, the wedding brought together parents from both sides in what was considered a success.
We had a good time with both families. My dad got the opportunity to interact with Chiki´s dad. They now know each other.
In the current day and age, star-studded and lavish weddings are the order of the day especially among celebrities.
However, the Sauti Sol´s lead vocalist stressed:
Please don´t do a wedding to please your parents. Do it depending on the size of your pockets, how much you can afford. A wedding is the beginning of your life. So don´t spend all your money on a wedding. Do something small and affordable. You better spend much on your honeymoon than at the wedding.
According to him, it makes no sense to have to run into debts just to finance a wedding that is meant to please family, friends and the world at large.
Stop borrowing loans and money from your friends so you can hold a big wedding and go into debt.
Because for them, their wedding budget was pretty within their means:
The budget was less than Ksh 300,000. A good budget for artistes like me.
The newly weds were unable to proceed on their honeymoon following the COVID-19 pandemic but eventually:
If I will go, I will choose an African country.
