Tanzanian singer Ben Pol has confirmed that he is parting ways with Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai through a legal proceeding.
According to a statement released on Thursday, Ben Pol confirmed that the divorce proceedings are ongoing at a primary court in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
He, however, stated that the divorce proceedings are yet to be finalized.
At the same time, Ben Pol’s father asked for privacy. He called on everyone to respect the privacy of the two even as they move to finalize the end of their marriage.
“At this time, Ben Pol would like to confirm that his divorce proceedings are in progress at the primary court but have not yet been finalized.
Both Ben Pol and Anerlisa painted a perfect couple’s goal all over social media. Who knew they would eventually call it quits? Yeah, marriage is not a bed of roses.
They walked down the aisle at a private ceremony in Tanzania last year. Their union was close to clocking its first anniversary.
They publicly displayed love and affection to an extent that Ben Pol featured Anerlisa as a vixen to his song, ‘kidani.’
On Wednesday Anerlisa posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story saying she does not want to be associated with anyone.
“I would like to make it clear that I signed whatever was needed to be signed and I do not wish to be associated with anyone. My focus right now is my career and peace,” she wrote.
Anerlisa has gone ahead to remove her wedding ring, confirming the break-up.
She later scrapped off her husband’s name on her social media bio, and removed the title, ‘Wife to Ben Pol’.
A week ago, she also dropped Ben Pol’s official name “Mnyang’anga” from her social media platforms where she used to identify herself as “Anerlisa Muigai Mnyang’anga”.
