Anerlisa Muigai's Tanzanian ex-husband Ben Pol has thanked his fans for their support after the loss of his dad.

Taking to his social media he captioned,

"Asante sana kwa kutufikiria katika kipindi hiki kigumu, ushirikiano wako wa hali na mali, jumbe za faraja, ushiriki, simu, kututembelea vina maana kubwa sana kwetu na kamwe hatuwezi kusahau. Mwenyezi Mungu ampumzishe Mzee wetu mahala pema, nawe akuzidishie baraka. Kwa niaba ya familia ya Mzee Paul Mnyang’anga. Ben."

(Thank you for thinking about us during this difficult period. Your cooperation in money and kind has been very important to us.)" He wrote in part.

Ben thanked people who had taken their time to call the family adding that they would never forget the acts of kindness shown by people.

Adding, "These past few days have been surreal. Thank you for making us feel a little more grounded. Your kind condolences mean more than you know. God Bless."

Ben had last week taken to his socials to announce the death of his dad. He did not however reveal what was the cause of his death. "RIP Strongman #DAD 💔🙏🏾 25/07/2022."

The sad news came a few weeks after Ben Pol professed his undying love for Kenyan women despite having had a short-lasting marriage with one. 

Ben Pol said the reason he loves Kenyan women is that they are hardworking.

"Napenda wanawake wa Kenya kwasababu sisi wabongo tuko slow kidogo.(I love Kenyan women because our Bongo women are a bit slow. Wanawake wa Kenya ni sharp (Kenyan women are sharp)," he said.

Ben Pol who was on a Kenyan tour also professed his love for the country adding that he has adopted a Kenyan name.

"Mimi ni Mkenya, naitwa Kamau."

Ben Pol was living in Kenya most of the time when he was married to Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai.

The two started dating in 2018 and held their wedding in 2020 only to part ways months later. Ben Pol said Anerlisa was one of his greatest cheerleaders.

He featured Anerlisa in two of his music videos as a vixen. Ben however could not point out the exact reason for their fallout.
