Lulu Hassan reveals the unconventional secret of her long marriage

Well-known Kenyan television personality Lulu Hassan has revealed some details regarding the happy ending to her 15-year marriage to Rashid Abdalla.

In a recent candid interview at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Lulu provided an unusual recipe for marital bliss, arguing that the key to their happiness lies in keeping their arguments in the privacy of their bedroom. This is in stark contrast to the corny stories of love and harmony.

You may want to reconsider your assumption that Lulu Hassan and Rashid Abdalla were your average power couple.
This open discussion exposed an unexpectedly different aspect to their relationship—one that is very different from the flawless public persona they present.

The fascinating tale of how Lulu and Rashid met was revealed by the mother of three children. She clarified that having recently lost her mother, Rashid had first been a friend to her at a difficult moment when she needed someone to lean on.

After growing from a helpful friend to a significant role in her life and eventually becoming a devoted husband, Rashid and she are currently commemorating 15 years of marriage. She said, “Rashid alikuja kama rafiki kwanza,” which means that their bond was formed via companionship and assistance to one another.

“Unajua ile time mumefiliwa you need a shoulder to lean on and stuff hivyo ndio niliona rashid niliona huyu ni kama baba mwenye nilikuwa sina kwa familia. Hivyo ndio kidogo kidogo tu mapenzi ilikuja na sai tukona watoto watatu na 15 years in marriage.

Their handling of disagreement is what makes their marriage so contentious. Lulu disclosed that they never argue in public; when they do, they keep their arguments to themselves in their bedroom and don’t carry them over into the following day.

“Sisi ni marafiki hatukorofishani na kama tutakorofishana tutakorofishana tutafanya ndani ya room na hataiendelea hadi the next day. Hatujai beba makasiriko to the next day.

Their unusual habit of “fighting in bed” is how they manage to have a nice and calm relationship. It’s undoubtedly a contentious strategy that goes against conventional relationship counsel that promotes candid communication during arguments.

Lulu also praised Rashid’s character and his commitment to his career. He was a wonderful friend and a nice husband, according to her. She even spoke positively about a “bad” argument they had once, suggesting that these kinds of arguments weren’t often and didn’t stay with her. She expressed her enthusiasm for Rashid’s attributes by highlighting his workaholic tendencies, wisdom, and affection.

Chagua na Uvumilie! Lulu Hassan shares how she met husband while he was broke and with nothing 

Citizen TV power couple Lulu Hassan and Rashid Abdalla have come a long way to the sassy couples everybody looks up to nowadays.

Lulu Hassan and Rashid Abdalla

Hassan recently opened up regarding her relationship, saying love made her trust her man.

“I was already a popular face on TV. I was blinded by love and didn’t despise him because of his financial constraints. But what is more surprising is that when the time for him to pay dowry came, he only gave a prayer mat and a Quran. That’s what he could afford at that time because he was earning a mere Ksh 5,000 per month,”


Lulu Hassan went on to add that though her man was broke, she didn’t despise him. And from this, he watched his man rise in the ranks to become a top news anchor in Kenya.

“After years of persistent and hard – work, the broke man has risen up the ranks to become one of the most celebrated Swahili presenters in the media industry. Today we are working in the same media station hosting the same program. The unconditional love me and Rashid Abdalla,” 


“Do not despise someone because of his financial status. Do not judge him based on where he is, his current condition and where he comes from. You may never know what tomorrow holds for him. My sister reading this piece, please do not turn away this skinny looking boy who want to settle down with you because of his current status. He might be in a place you will be proud of him one day.”

Rashid Abdalla comes out to give tips of advice to upcoming media talents:

Don´t go for fame.

Don´t fight for that title of the best artiste, fight to give people the best.

Let them decide if you´re the best.

According to him, Rashid and wife, Lulu Hassan just give their all and wait for the world to decide:

So to us, we´re not the best anchors in this world, we always try to give the best.

Its viewers who will decide who is the best.

He therefore insists, that the screens would not have one who seeks perfection stay up for long:

If you live with the mentality that you want to be the best, you´ll never be.

Give people good stuff and let them decide if you´re good or not.

His last words for the youthful and energetic talents are:

Do not join the media industry because you´ve heard there´s money or because you want to be famous.

Join because it´s your passion and try do your level best.

Sisi tutatofautiana, tunajengana, tunarekebishiana lakini hatukosani.

Katika mahusiano watu hutofautiana sio kukosana.

Mkikosana mpendane, mkitofautiana mjengane na mrekebishiane.

Mungu walinde na wabariki wale wote wasionipenda kwani uwepo wao ndio kipimo cha bidii zangu.

Mola nipe busara ya kushindana na jasho lango.

Mola wajalie wapika majungu kufahamu kwamba mimi si mkamilifu nina kasoro zangu tu kama binadamu wote wengine hivyo wasipoteze mda wao kwa ajili yangu.

The downside of couples working together… Lulu Hassan speaks of her fears

Lulu Hassan has been working with her husband Rashid Abdalla for five months now. Rashid quit NTV to join Citizen TV and he was paired with his own wife to anchor news together.

Lulu and Rashid have managed to keep a low profile on their personal lives, they rarely post anything about their family on social media.

For starters, Lulu and Rashid exchanged vows in a colorful wedding in 2013. The two had known each other for six good years prior to their wedding.


Rashid and Lulu have been blessed with three children in their five year marriage – two older boys and a girl who was born in early September 2018.

Lulu however fears that her onscreen chemistry with her husband could be disrupted by their last born daughter. The Citizen TV anchor explains that in case of an emergency one of them (Rashid and herself) would be forced to respond while the other one goes on with work.

“We have not had a major challenge but what our fear is that now because we have a baby, there might be a time she will not be feeling well, God forbid, and we will have to choose who will be responsible for the baby and who will be working,” said Lulu Hassan.

5 Kenyan male celebrities who have never been involved in any cheating scandals

It seems that Kenyan celebrities are not the type to cheat or rather they know how to keep their dirt on the low.

While Tanzanian entertainment industry is full of cheating scandals and drama; Kenyan celebrities are just out and about trying to make more money.

The industy is getting boring

However, I do agree that something should be done to spice up the industry….at least new songs, new relationships for those who are single, wedding and of course babies!

Most of the people in the entertainment industry are above 25 years meaning its about time to settle down.

Anyway I hear most bachelors prefer hitting the clubs for stress free relationships; but now we are tired of the same old trend!

I have managed to come up with a list of male celebrities who have never been caught up in any cheating scandals. 3 are married while two are in serious relationships.


SInger Nameless and Wahu

He has been married to Wahu for over a decade now and he is still the same loving man. He has never been portrayed as a bad husband on any tabloid and I guess he married his better half!


After his wedding, Wyre has maintained a low profile about his wife and family. Just close friends know about Wyre’s private life otherwise all we get to see is his music videos.

Eric Omondi

Well, I haven’t come across any scandal involving him cheating on his exes. Now that he is dating Chantal, we haven’t heard or seen him with any other woman if it’s not for business.

Khaligraph Jones

Having been his lady (kashy)from way before he became famous, Khaligraph Jones has never been caught entertaining any other lady. All we know is that he is in the game to make more money.

Rashidy Abdalla

Rashid Abdalla and his wife

Though his religion allows a man to have four wives, Rashid is still with Lulu Hassan; the love of his life and mother of his kids.
