Just a few weeks after coming out as a member of the LGBTIQ group, former BBC journalist and Tahaidi High actress, Makena Njeri has lifted the lid on her relationship with Michelle Ntalami who has for a long time been rumoured to be dating.
The Bold Network Africa CEO and Founder made it clear that that they are not dating despite their closeness that has for a long time been the subject of controversy with multiple reports indicating that they could be more than just friends.
In an interview on Radio Jambo, Makena said that it’s wrong for people to assume Ms Ntalami is her wife, just because of how close they are, insisting that they are just good friends.
“Ni makosa sana kusema kwamba huyo (Michelle) ni bibi yangu, hiyo ni makosa sana kwa sababu my relationship with Michelle is that we are very, very good friends and if youi go to my Instagram you will find that I have posted so many people. Hata leo nikitoka hapa nitapost Massawe na nitakuongelesha kama rafiki yangu. Kwa hiyo hiyo ni Makosa kusema mtu ni bibi ya mtu “
“It is a very big mistake to say that Michelle Ntalami is my wife. My relationship with Mitchelle is that we are very good friends, when you go to my Instagram you will find I have posted very many people.
I live my life very openly. If it comes a time when I will need to introduce my wife publicly, I will,” Makena told Massawe Japanni.
She however remained cagey about her dating life and tactfully redirected the conversation away from that area when asked on whether she is seeing someone, Makena replying:
“Let’s focus on Bold Network Africa. There is nothing like a wife right now, as long as you are in my inner circle, I appreciate my friends a lot.”
She confessed that she previously dated a man but the experience was not worh it as she was not living the truth.
Last month on May 27, 2021, Makena narrated that, Ms Ntalami has always been by her side no matter what; remembering the time she was trolled for 3 months for living her truth and eventually shared her sexual orientation with the world.
