Sauti Sol’s lead vocalist Bien Aime Baraza wedded the love of his life, Chiki Onwukwe, in an invite-only wedding at Pallet Cafe, Lavington, last Friday.
Bien said he could not invite all his friends because it was for family and close friends. “Only those who know me as Alusa, not Bien,” he said.
A few of his friends were offended for not making it to the guest list. But Bien said on Friday that it was his wedding.
“My message to those who are mad at me because they were not invited is, they should hold their weddings and don’t invite me. I am no longer interested in attending weddings because I have attended so many of them. It was my way of celebrating my commitment to my wife.”
His advice to couples planning weddings is to cut your coat according to your cloth. “Please don’t do a wedding to please your parents. Do it depending on the size of your pockets, how much you can afford. A wedding is the beginning of your life. So don’t spend all your money on a wedding. Do something small and affordable. You better spend much on your honeymoon than at the wedding.”
