Tanzanian singer Ben Pol has asked the public for privacy amidst divorce proceedings against wife Anerlisa Muigai.
There have been rumors about the divorce proceedings filed by the singer at a court in Dar es Salaam.
However, the Keroche heiress confirmed the gossip in a cryptic message on her Instagram stories on Wednesday.
“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.
To reinforce the reality, Pol has for the first time spoken about the issue demanding that their followers respect their privacy and space.
“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. These proceedings are a very private matter and he will not discuss any details out of respect for all parties involved,” read a statement by the singer’s management.
“He kindly asks that space and privacy be given to him and his family during these challenging times. He appreciates everyone’s understanding and takes this opportunity to thank his family, his friends, and his fans for their ongoing support.”
Ben Pol and Anerlisa wedded in May 2020 in a private ceremony held at St Gaspar Catholic Church in Mbezi Beach.
Troubles in their marriage were indicated after the 33- year- old dropped her husband’s name ‘Mnyang’ang’a’ from her social media platforms where she previously identified herself as “Anerlisa Muigai Mnyang’anga”.
Their separation became clear when she further unfollowed the bongo star from all the platforms,
