Never dated a woman or a non-binary person, Chiki Kuruka distances herself from Ntalami's break-up drama
Sauti Sol lead singer Bien Aime's wife Chiki Kuruka has refuted allegations that she is the 'married woman' behind the break up of beauty entrepreneur Michelle Ntalami and her ex-lover.
While responding to a series of questions on social media, Chiki, a dance and fitness instructor revealed that she has neither dated a woman nor had a relationship with a non-binary person.
"I would normally ignore this. But I guess I have time right now. Let's do this lets tag the people you are chatting about, because as far as I'm aware @michelle.ntalami has never mentioned my name in her messages," Chiki said.
Chiki went on to say that she was irritated for having to be in the middle of a topic that has nothing to do with her adding that it is off-putting to her as an ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
“I have never had a relationship with either a non-binary person nor a woman. Instead I have always given my support to a community that I greatly love and respect. But these implore are starting to irritate me, not because my in-laws have to respond to this BS, but because humans like YOU put allies off speaking up.”
An irate Chiki further adds that the question posed to her should be tagged to Michele Ntalami, who is primarily involved.
“I have always had nothing but respect for Michelle actually, but the fact that I am involved in something that has NOTHING to do with me, needs to end. If you are so concerned, I have tagged Michelle, don’t speculate, ask her your damn self if she was referring to me. Then leave my page.”
Michelle Ntalami, co-founder of Marini Naturals, came to Chiki's defense shortly after in a long and heartfelt message.
Michele wrote: “Thank you for tagging me in this @chikikuruka! Hey @esseyapple I want to be very clear and clear Chiki's name from the two persons I alluded to in my open letter. Neither of them is her. Additionally, the hurt caused has less to do with who the two people are, and more to do with 'them' and I. Ultimately, the decision to be faithful will always boil back down to the two people in the relationship.”
Ntalami goes on to thank Chiki for being an ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
“That said, keep shining your light @chikikuruka! As a fellow ally, I see and love what you are doing for the company and community! I will always be there in truth and in spirit.”
This follows The Marini naturals boss's announcement on Instagram of the end of her relationship with her lover in a three-part post titled "An Open Letter of Truth."
She ended her relationship with her lover due to wanton infidelity with multiple partners, according to the IG post.
"Those I suspected and confirmed are two individuals; one a public figure, and the other a less known married woman, a health worker," Ms Ntalami wrote.
Chiki, who is married to Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien, has openly said that she is an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and even attended the Bold and Proud Halloween event on Oct 27, which was sponsored by the Bold Network Africa, a community that seeks to tell stories of African queer people who have chosen to be bold.
“…Pride Month, Bold and Proud, and what a BEAUTIFUL moment it was. My call is to allies. Let's be bolder, prouder and stronger.” Chiki said.
