Sauti Sol’s Bien and Wife Chiki reveal how they met
Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime Baraza and his wife Chiki Kuruka have finally let their fans in on their love journey.
In the latest episode of the Sol Generation docu-series, Bien described Chiki as the love of his life and his biggest critic.
Bien and Chiki revealed they met slightly over six years ago when American hip hop star Talib Kweli performed in Kenya.
Chiki had gone to the even in the company of her friend, photographer Emmanuel Jambo when they bumped into each Bien.
They later met at a different even again where they connected and ended up having lunch at Mama Oliech’s.
“I met her standing at the parking lot a friend of mine called Emmanuel and I was like Emmanuel unachapa kitu safi. I actually thought her and Emmanuel were together…..That night we ended up talking for so long and I was like this girl is intelligent. That time I had been single for about a year. When I met her, I wasn’t actually looking for love in her, but in her I felt like I was drinking a fresh glass of juice talking to Chiki.” Bien said
Chiki also revealed that she thought their first date at Mama Oliech’s was that an appreciation lunch for a professional hook up he had done for Bien.
She however added that she connected so well with Bien from the first time they met.
