Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Aime Baraza has opened up on being in an open marriage allowing his wife Chiki to sleep with whoever she wants.
Speaking in an interview, Bien said that she has no problem with Chiki sleeping with anyone she has a crush on.
“Marriage is a partnership, the romantic part of marriage is going to fade away at some point. You keep it burning but the love you feel towards your partner will change over the years.
I and Chiki have this thing where if I ever meet my celebrity crush somewhere and I am in a situation where my celebrity crush wants to ‘engage in coitus’ with me, then so be it and vice versa. I don’t have a problem with it if that is what she wants, she should get it. You can’t stop a human being from doing that. But also I can’t catch feelings, I’m after her happiness.” Said Bien.
He narrated an incident when Chiki met with American Actor Idris Elba, “One day Chiki called me in the middle of the night, she was in Ghana. She was like, “Guess who I’m with?” “Idris Elba”. I woke up took six Panadols and slept.”
Bien also allowed his wife to be hit on while partying in Nigeria, “There was a day I went to a club with Chiki in Nigeria, I even felt bad for her. I told her, “The guys here are looking so hot, I feel so bad for you. I’m gonna go out and smoke a J, be hit on.” Guys were buying her champagne and they were going all out. Even when we were going back to the hotel, I felt bad because I knew in the back of her head, she would have been with someone better but anyway this is life.”
This idea of the open relationship became famous following the story of Jada Pinkett and Will Smith. This after singer August Alsina came out to reveal that he had an entanglement with Jada. He went ahead to claim that Will Smith and Jada were in an open relationship at that time when he was hitting on Jada.
