Bahati and Diana Marua
The couple together

Bahati and Diana Marua have been put before the firing squad on numerous occasions as fans and haters alike question the solidity, efficacy and compatibility of their marriage.

The biggest problem for some is the age difference between the two, with Diana claiming that she is 2 years older than Bahati.

The number of times the two have had to defend their marriage has been unprecedented.

Bahati once admonished the haters, telling video streaming site Viusasa last year:

I’m proud of my wife’s age, I always wanted an older woman, I matured at the age of 12, growing up in the ghetto and I knew I’d wanted a woman who wouldn’t stress me.

Diana has also defended her relationship on many occasions. Late last year, she said,

I’m only two years older than Bahati. It used to get to me, but what matters right now is how he takes care of me. He is the head of the house regardless of my age. I respect that boundary. I respect him as a husband.

Unlike the people who are focused on their ages, I am more concerned with the scandals that have bedeviled Bahati since they became an item.

Lately, Bahati has been in the news more for scandals rather than his talent. In 2013, the young man amazed many when he released his hit single, “Mama”. The song propelled him to the top of the gospel charts.

After that, he became the new kid on the block to watch out for. And he did live up to those expectations for some time. But the last couple of years have been more about his scandals than his music.

That leads us to take a poll: Do you think the two are good for each other?
