Diana Marua has the ignominious place in Bahati’s life of being the Achilles heel that his detractors love to hit at to take shots at him. And the unfortunate reality they face is that this will never end.
Most recently, it was Bahati’s frenemy, Willy Paul who took shots at Bahati in a recent interview with Jalang’o. During the interview, Willy Paul referenced the jibe most people take at Bahati: His wife wears the pants in their relationship.
This assumption most people have is fed by the fact that Diana Marua is quite a few years older than Bahati. Add to this the fact that she also was a worldly woman whose relationships and entanglements were very public and you can understand why tongues are often wagging.
Bahati too often feeds the nonsense with his social media posts that are meant to be a tongue-in-cheek stab at poking fun at his detractors and the fact that he does seems to give credence to the whispers.
At the end of the day, the fact that they have elected to open up their marriage to public scrutiny is always going to haunt them and with their children growing older and older, the lack of privacy will soon become an issue as their children begin to interact with their peers and Bahati and Diana Marua become fodder for gossip and teasing.
Bahati however, should make himself comfortable with the fact that his wife will always be the foil to his caricature and because most people cannot take aim at him as he is at the apex of his career, she will often bear the brunt of the haters vitriol because they are she is seen as more accessible what with her lack of talent.
This though, I suspect will make the couple even closer as they will constantly have to deal with antagonists from outside their relationship and Bahati will always be stuck in a perennial defense mode to protect his wife from his haters.
