Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Amie Baraza has tied the knot with Nigerian fiancée, Chiki Onwukwe Kuruka, in a secret private wedding.
The ceremony took place on the morning of Friday, March 6, at Lavington, Nairobi. It was an intimate ceremony witnessed only by close family members and friends.
To detract the media from covering his wedding, Bien is reported to have told the press that his wedding was scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 7.
According to close sources with the couple, the guests were asked to leave their phones at the reception and that is why no photos leaked.
The source said that the invitations were sent on Thursday, March 5, as well as the location of the wedding. Initially, the invited guests were told that it was a lunch date but were later informed in the night about the actual event.
Apart from his band members, Fellow Kenyan musicians like Nyashinski, Nazizi and Nameless attended and entertained the guests.
After dating for some time, in February last year, the Kenyan artist proposed to Chiki, a dance choreographer at West gate Mall in Nairobi. He hired an entire cinema hall at the mall and made sure only a few friends witness the proposal.
We wish you the best on your marriage journey, Bien and Chiki.
