Betty Kyallo responds to claims she has left NTV’s Dennis Okari
Betty Kyallo-Okari has refuted rumours doing rounds on social media that she has separated from her husband Dennis Okari.
Last week, a blog splashed that the media couple is going through a turbulent phase in their marriage.
“KTN’s Betty Okari’s marriage to Dennis Okari hits rock bottom,” was the blog’s headline for the story that has had everyone speculating.
The publication was widely read, shared and set the agenda for social media discussion for a better part of last week through to late this week.
Some blogs even alleged that Betty Kyallo left Okari for controversial Kenyan rapper CMB Prezzo.
Fans consequently took to social media to urge the TV host to “fight for her marriage”.
Arap Kiongo: “Betty Please don’t disappoint me; fight for your marriage, nothing else matters… Fight this battle on your knees hun.”
Faith Guru: “Betty fight for what is rightfully yours keeping in mind you got a smart pretty kid who needs both her mum and dad around her. Strong women don’t give up. Don’t disappoint me and all the other fans. We love you and you are always in our prayers.”
Shikol Njuguna: “This rumour (marriage break up) is worrying me every day and praying hard that it won’t happen.”
Maddie Dola: “I honestly hope and pray that everything is right with your marriage.”
Well, Betty Okari on Twitter put to rest all the speculations and implied all is well in her marriage after a curious and intrepid fan going by the name Emily Mutwiri inquired on Friday.
“@BettyOkari is it true that you left Okari for Prezzo or that is propaganda?” posed Ms Mutwiri.
Betty replied: “Isn’t that the joke of the century! (adds three laughing emojis).”
In a photo she shared on Instagram on Friday, Betty Kyallo alongside her KTN Friday Briefing guest anchor Scott The Violinist, smiles at the camera with her hands akimbo and her wedding ring clearly visible on her left ring finger.
A keen fan noted Betty’s wedding ring and even sought to put to shame the anchor’s “haters” saying her marriage is unscathed. Lucitta Gal said: “Haters die. She is wearing a ring. Happy marriage dear.”
Dennis Okari is yet to comment on the marriage break up speculations.
Well, there you have it: All indicators point towards an unimpaired marriage between Betty Kyallo and Dennis Okari who are blessed with a beautiful one-year-old daughter Ivanna.
We wish the power couple all the best in their marriage.
