Tanzanian singer Ben Pol revealed that he paid over Ksh 3 million in dowry for Anerlisa Muigai.
Rich kid Anerlisa has kept her relationship with Ben Pol private since they started dating.
Last year September Ben Pol staked his claim to Anerlisa’s hand in marriage.
Speaking to Tanzanian media Ben Pol claimed that he has already met Anerlisa’s parents and paid dowry in millions of money which is equivalent to hundred cows.
Speaking to Tanzanian newspaper Ben Pol said,
“WHAT MANY DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS THAT WHEN IT COMES TO PLANNING A WEDDING, PRIVACY SHOULD BE PARAMOUNT. NOT EVERYTHING SHOULD BE ANNOUNCED ONLINE. SO, I’LL URGE THOSE PRESSURISING US TO WED TO BE PATIENT AND SEE WHAT THE OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WILL BE. AND WHEN WE TIE THE KNOT, THEY WILL STILL KNOW, GIVEN A WEDDING IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN’T DO IN SECRECY.”
If we were to mathematically calculate Ben Pol’s pride price we can assume he paid over 5 million, if one cow was to cost Ksh 50,000.
“CURRENTLY, I AM IN THE PROCESS OF PUTTING THINGS RIGHT, BUT IF YOU’RE ASKING IF THE WEDDING PLANS ARE STILL ON, THE ANSWER IS: ‘YES, THEY ARE’.”
“I REMEMBER WE WERE IN DAR ES SALAAM, WHERE I HELD HER ARM, SHE HELD MINE, I HUGGED HER, SHE HUGGED BACK. I KISSED HER, SHE KISSED BACK, AND I IMMEDIATELY KNEW THERE WAS CHEMISTRY BETWEEN US,” Ben pol explained.
