Kenyan celebrity couple Blessing Lung'aho and Jackie Matubia have come out to explain themselves after being trolled over their Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Premiere outfits. 

Matubia explained that it was never their intention to dress that way as the invite to the event came late.

"The invites to the Wakanda Fan Screening came late and there was no time for us to get prepared but we wouldn't say no since we are getting paid to go for such events," Jackie Matubia defends her ' poor fashion sense.'

The two went on to explain that they could not miss such a big event because they are paid to attend, 

"You guys have really trolled us, some saying I forgot my cosset home, others that I was going to a baby shower.

"The invite came on Monday mid-night and definitely we saw it on Tuesday, and the event is on Wednesday… we tried calling the big designers in Kenya and they were all busy.

Matubia personally stated that she didn't have enough time to prepare an appropriate outfit for that event.

Even after being criticized by her online family, the internet sensation said that the dress that she wore to the event was made in just a few hours by one of her run-to designers.

Jackie explained that they had to show up for that event no matter what as they had been paid to attend the screening.

"I felt I looked good and sorry that I didn’t meet people’s expectations and we could not miss going to the such event because we are being paid for it and we need that money,".

They said; We will do better next time 

However, a section of their fans felt like there was no need to explain themselves to online critics as that was a waste of time and energy.
