2016 Groove Awards Best Male Singer Ljay Masai appeared to have walked down the aisle with lover, Ashley Mutahi.
He and his lover shared wedding-like photos on social media that attracted a smattering of congratulatory messages.
A closer look at the photos showed the two with wedding-like rings on their wedding rings.
Interestingly, the wedding seemed to have attracted no crowd or family or even friends of the couple.
At the photo-shoot Ashley donned a flowing, white gown while Masai wore a white matching outfit with subtle ankara detail.
The singer, on phone interview with eDaily neither admitted nor denied the rumours of the supposed wedding:
” I don’t want to discuss details of my private life with the media, but this Friday, everyone will know, “ Ljay told this publication.
His refusal to call it a spade confirmed what we knew; it was another fake nuptial aimed at hyping a new song release.
A while back, singer Bahati made headlines after faking a wedding with his now lover, Diana Marua.
He was following in the footsteps of Willy Paul who had done a mock wedding with Jamaica’s Alaine in his chart-topping hit ‘I do’.
And before Willy Paul, there was singer Akothee and a fake wedding to her mzungu lover in South Africa.
