When having a conversation with my colleagues or friends one of the topics that usually come up is “are you single?”, “does your bae post you on social media ama tunyamaze?”.
As the famous Maya Angelou quote goes, “Love is that condition in the healing spirit so profound that it allows us to forgive.” I agree with this but it gets to a point where you can no longer forgive your partner due to some understandable circumstances and decide to call it quits.
We have seen a lot of relationships and marriages coming to an end all in the name of ‘I am showing off my bae to the public’ only for us to hear that someone’s girlfriend has been spotted in the company a certain celebrity or vice versa.
During an interview hosted by Caroline Mukami, Christopher Barton Namwaya, popularly known as Kristoff, said that he is off the market.
Well, the reason why you have not and won’t been seeing any his girlfriend’s photos on his social media accounts is because the artist likes keeping his private life to himself.
He emphasized that posting your partner is like marketing him or her to other people and you should have yourself to blame if someone else decides to start hitting on your bae.
Kristoff warned the netizens that they do not have to tag their partner if at all they will post them as this opens up the relationship to infidelity. All in all, the dundaing hitmaker is of the idea of just keeping your personal life to yourself.
To be honest, he has a point. Last month, when Size 8’s marriage was on the rocks, a city pastor took to social media and posted, “Marriage isn’t a walk in the park. Social media will break your marriages.”
“Kwanza wale wanaume wanapenda kupost their wives kutisha watu, ni mkora. Mwanaume ambaye anashindia kutaja bibi yake kuliko biashara ni mkora,” the pastor added.
We have witnessed how Marya and Moustapha, Natalie Tewa and Rnaze Mukibi, Tanasha Donna and Diamond’s relationships, just to mention a few, came to an end.
In all honesty, reading about how these celebrities started by posting all their lovey-dovey lifestyles on social media to how they broke up is gut-wrenching.
To save yourselves from affliction, I would suggest you take Kristoff’s advice and keep your relationship private.
