The star further revealed that the that they have been friends for over eight years and dated for seven months before the cat was let out without their consent.
The singer was speaking during an interview with TUKO.
“We have been friends for eight years. We kept our relationship a secret for months without telling people we were dating. We needed to understand ourselves, are we strong enough for the public because they can be ruthless,” he told TUKO.
“Our decision was to keep it low until we were ready to announce it. It affects our brands in a way…will I still continue being Nviiri the ladies’ man, bwana pombe sigara, single man? Dynamics change. And for her, will she continue being the same role model? by the time people came to find about it, we were already confident about our relationship.”
Nvriiri further took time to describe his girlfriend stating that, ‘She is smart’.
