Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Amie Baraza has finally married his longtime Nigerian girlfriend Chiki Kuruka Onukwe.

The two lovebirds held the secret occasion on Friday, March 6 at Lavington in a hotel near James Gichuru road.

The low-key ceremony was attended by those invited only and the guests had been directed to come on a cab since there was no parking space.

According to sources the wedding preparations had been done in secret so that the media wouldn’t know.

Those invited had been sent invitation letters a day before and were required to be seated by 10:30 am.

“The wedding is at Lavington right and only a few celebs are invited. It is a very secret event with tight security. No gate crashers or media” said a source as quoted by Classic FM.


The newlyweds disclosed that the wedding had been postponed to this year because the bride’s family was not around.

At a past interview, Bien disclosed that he doesn’t fancy white weddings since they were introduced by the whites and conforming to the tradition would seem like colonization.

“We will not have a white wedding because a white wedding was introduced by the white and I’m not going to follow that since it’s like colonization. I will, therefore, have a traditional wedding,” he said.

The 32-year-old proposed to Chiki, a dance choreographer in February last year in Westgate at a cinema.
