Kenyan artist Ssaru wa Manyaru, 21 years old, has sparked a heated debate by disclosing the substantial dowry amount she expects from any potential suitor looking to marry her.
In an interview with Plug TV, the acclaimed Kaskie Vibaya hitmaker boldly declared that her dowry stands at an astounding one billion dollars, underscoring that anything less would not be entertained.
Confidently expressing her lack of immediate interest in marriage, the musician asserted that the dowry figure might increase over time. She conveyed her sentiments by stating, “I want to inform my current partner that marriage is not in my immediate plans. I prefer to wait for a few years. However, it’s noteworthy that each passing year sees a rise in the dowry amount, reaching a billion shillings effortlessly, like clockwork.”
Ssaru emphasized her self-worth, stating, “I know my value.”
After the video’s release on Nairobi Gossip’s Instagram account, fans responded with various reactions. Some comments included:
“😂😂😂😂 Seems like she’s talking about someone from Tanzania…because I don’t see that one billion leaving this place. 😂😂.”
“It’s like she’s addressing the Tanzanian crew 😂 okay then.”
“This is where women go wrong. This is a decision for the elders. Even if she says two chickens, fine. Done!”
“So if you’ve been told not to bring bad vibes to your territory, why complain 😂😂😂😂 just be careful with your comment; your father might end up paying that one billion 😂😂😂😂.”
“Then add an extra 100,000 for the marriage certificate 😂💔.”
“Or maybe that’s the title of her next song 😂.”
