The question on everyone’s mind is whether the Keroche heiress has found love. One admires Anerlisa Muigai not just for her physical charm, the fame as well as the fortunes that have gotten her the title of the Keroche heiress.

She happens to be one of the youngest millionaires in the region who has won many hearts for her courage.

When everyone was thinking that she was still nursing her broken heart from last year’s break-up and hate that came with the weight loss and a little story about a close ‘she’ friend, she turned a new leaf and introduced us to one Benard Michael Paul Mnyang’anga aka Ben Pol, who is now her fiancé.

About six months since the affair became public knowledge, Anerlisa finally introduced her Tanzanian singer heartthrob to her family. This ahead of the possible cross-border wedding that, if the events we have been witnessing between the two are anything to go by, could be the next big ceremony in celebvile.

It all started like a joke after the two were spotted at social events and places together by paparazzi. They both, back then, denied that they were dating. In fact, during an interview late last year, Anerlisa said they were business partners pushing each other’s brands across the region.

In October 2018, Anerlisa announced that she would be collaborating with Ben Pol to market her bottled water.

“We sat down with my team and decided that I need to be making appearances on the places that really support us with #executivestillwater. This time I would like to start with some few clubs that I felt have given us support beyond our expectations. One of Tanzanian top Artist @iambenpol will be joining me in making these appearances,” Anerlisa announced.

But how long can one conceal the flames of affection? The two were spotted having romantic moments and before long, photos of them enjoying an exotic romantic holiday emerged. It was clear, Cupid had struck.

The two started dating a month after they first met in March 2018 when Ben Pol was in the country for a media tour.

“Since April last year,’’ Anerlisa revealed when asked when the two started seeing each other.

During a recent interview with Tanzania’s Times FM, he admitted he was smitten by the Kenyan girl. The CEO of Nero Company, whose flashy living coupled with a business mind has won her friends and foes in almost equal measure.

“We are very tight and of course there is a lot of stuff we have planned together. Some of the stuff is private I cannot share. I will not lie to you, she is hot and I love her. She has conquered my heart,” Ben Pol said.

That was just the tip of the iceberg. At the time, a ceremony was being organised by Anerlisa to welcome him home for an introduction ceremony with her family.

A video emerged early this week showing the two addressing what seems to be a close family gathering. Anerlisa has since released the video and photos on her Instagram praising her boo.

“First he is very humble, loving, God-fearing, he is not a user, he is not afraid to tell me the truth and I have had the best and craziest time with him also he doesn’t distract me from my work,” Anerlisa revealed via her social pages.

“Only God Knows,” she responded when asked when the big day would be.

“I work so hard for the life I want but in the real sense who should I really be working for? Time to start thinking of starting a family and work for my kids like my parents did,’’ she enthused.

And it is not just Anerlisa and Ben Pol who are having a February lover’s hype. After his messy divorce with fellow TV host Betty Kyalo, Dennis Okari has officially moved on, proposing to his new girlfriend - Naomi Joy - last weekend. He popped the big question before family members and she said yes.

“This is going to be a special day for me and you because you are loving and God fearing person and I know that all the nice things I can get are from you, so today I wanted to just share these special moments.”

“I can’t wait to do life with you, and I can’t wait to start the journey if only I get the answer that I am expecting. So before all these lovely people, family, friends and our parents here.

“This ring is just a symbol of my commitment to the covenant that we are going to make one of these fine days. So I want to ask you, Naomi Joy, with everything that I have and everything that I am, will you marry me?” posed Okari.
