Popular Bongo musician Ben Paul Mnayang’ana alias Benpol, has finally broken his silence on his ongoing divorce proceedings to his millionaire wife, Anerlisa Muigai.
Speaking through his management, Benpol confirmed the divorce rumours which were shared three weeks ago by Tanzanian blogger Millard Ayo.
He revealed that the case is being heard in a court in Mwanzo, Dar-es-salaam.
The ‘Moyo mashine’ hitmaker refused to divulge specific details of the proceedings out of respect for the parties involved.
He asked his fans to give him privacy during these tough times and thanked his friends for remaining by his side.
“At this time, Benpol would like to confirm that his divorce proceedings are in progress at the primary court but have not yet been finalized. He appreciates everyone’s understanding and takes his opportunity to thank his friends and fans for their support.”
Two days ago, Benpol’s soon-to-be ex-wife Anerlisa through her Instagram, stated that she signed the necessary divorce papers.
She insisted not to be associated with the Tanzanian star henceforth.
The 33-year-old shunned men in her inbox looking to replace her ex, stating that she is not available.
Additionally, Anerlisa scrapped off the title ‘wife to Benpol’ from her Instagram bio and dropped her husband’s surname.
Their divorce comes barely a year after they said their wedding vows in a fancy private ceremony at st Gaspar Catholic Church in Mbezi beach, Tanzania.
The expensive event was attended only by close family members and friends. The two dated since 2018 after meeting at a business event where Benpol had been performing.
Anerlisa Muigai previously defended claims that Benpol married her for her wealth.
She said that Benpol was the man she always wanted to be with as he was never bothered by her hustles and ventures.
On his side, Benpol mentioned that he had a good life in Tanzania prior to meeting Anerlisa.
He showered several praises on Anerlisa, calling her beautiful and a go-getter, qualities he said every man admires.
