Kenyan 100 meters fast-rising sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala has turned down socialite Huddah Monroe’s advances after she announced she had a crush on him.
Huddah had expressed interest in Omanyala after his outstanding performance at the Kip Keino classic, where he clocked 9.85 seconds to win the men’s 100m championship.
Taking to her Instagram stories, the socialite said the Olympic medalist had the looks and he might make her not go back to Dubai, where she relocated two years ago.
“Omanyala is not so bad looking, hapa Kenya ni kama sitoki…connect hiyo date,” she wrote.
At the centre of all the advances, it is worth noting that Omanyala is married to Laventa Omanyala and have been blessed with a son.
Omanyala turns her down
The 26-year-old University of Nairobi student has since responded to the socialite, turning her down.
Speaking to Milele FM, the sprinter boldly said he is a married man adding that the socialite cannot get him and maybe the only thing she can gain from her intentions is fame.
“Shetani ashindwe! Huyo hata akituma nini bana hawezi nipata. Kitu anaweza pata maybe ni jina. Simtaki, nishafunga hiyo safari. (The devil be defeated. She can never get me, the only thing she can get out of this is fame. I don’t want her, I’m already taken),”said Omanyala.
Questioned whether he can consider her a second wife, Omanyala said his wife Laventa is more beautiful than her so there is be no need.
“That is not possible, my wife is prettier than she is, so why would I take her as a second wife?” he posed.
In the interview, the sprinter said since he became a household name, ladies, just like Huddah, have been hitting on him.
“It is not only Huddah, I will run away from! If I see any woman coming at me with those similar intentions, I take off. I take off fast like Kipchoge, very fast. I’m very loyal to my wife,” he said.
