Celebrities that dated below their class

Vera Sidika and Otile Brown
Vera Sidika and Otile Brown

We all know the story. It’s a tale as old as time. Princess meets pauper, both fall deeply in love. The pair may look odd to most people but to each other, they are just fine, everything is just perfect!

I mean many of these relationships do not or out in the end -but hey, at least they tried!

Brenda Wairimu and Juliani

When Brenda Wairimu and Juliani began dating it was literally the talk of the town. Seeing as Juliani was kind of the opposite of what people expected a girl like her to be with, nobody understood or even believed the rumours when they began because they had initially kept it a secret.

However, with time, people went from misunderstanding their relationship to being stans (especially once they got their beautiful baby girl).

Like most badly written fairy tales, theirs also did not have a happy ever after as they parted ways after a while.

Juliani found himself on the lips of many Kenyans in the second half of 2021 after he was accused of being the reason why Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua lost his wife Lilian Ng’ang’a, who got into a relationship with Juliani immediately after leaving the governor and her post as Machakos county first lady.

Vera Sidika and Otile Brown

Yes, their relationship ended in a fiery ball of contempt and revenge fuelled statements, but when they started dating, all had to admit that they were one of the cutest couples to exist at the time (remember when Chaguo la Moyo came out?).

Their breakup revealed however how everything had been going on in their relationship. Turns out Vera Sidika had been financing everything that they did and in the end, she felt as if she had been used.

Vera is currently dating Fredrick Kilonzo, Popularly known as Brown Mauzo and they have a child together.

Shakillah and Eric Omondi

When they started dating it was seen as a stunt from the show that Eric called ‘Wife Material.’ Shakilla was not famous then, in fact, she came from a rather impoverished family but upgraded her life massively when she started with Eric by her side.

Now she is said to be worth millions of shillings and she is only getting richer and richer. She’s rumored to be currently dating a tycoon who flies her everywhere she wants to go now so it is safe to say Shakilla is living the life she always wanted.

Anerlisa and Benpol

Anerlisa has always been known as the billionaire heiress in Kenya and in that regard, she always has had the financial upper hand n her relationships.

It originally looked like they were both alright with the power imbalance in their relationship but it has recently come out that they were in fact completely not.

She took to her Instagram a while back to ‘advise’ her followers to never date people that aren’t in the same financial league as they are. She said they will use them, even if it doesn’t look like they are.
