Koko Kamillah responds to rumours that she is dating Omar Lali.
Following the photo’s virality, Koko Kamillah came out pouring cold water on rumours that the two are romantically involved.
She further added that she and Omar are ‘old friends’ and nothing more.
According to Koko, she found out about the viral photo after she woke up to many people sending her direct messages and Whatsapping her. She also stated that although someone uploaded her pic with Omar with the wrong captions, she enjoyed the show.
Omar Lali was thrust into the public light after the death of Keroche Breweries heiress Tecra Muigai in May 2020.
The two were engaged and planning to get married when calamity struck, and Tecra lost her life.
According to reports, Tecra fell a flight of stairs at the home she was staying with Omar in Shela, Lamu.
Despite Omar rushing her to the hospital and her family airlifting her to Nairobi, Tecra, later on, succumbed to her injuries.
Following Tecra’s death, Omar was arrested and only secured his freedom in June 2020 after the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) dropped the charges against him.
Omar chose to live a low-profile life since then and has only been in the limelight with this new photo.
