Tanzanian singer Ben Pol is not in a hurry to get married again after his divorce with Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai.

The two got married in March 2020 and Ben Pol filed for divorce in early 2021.

The 'Moyo Mashine' singer told Mpasho.co.ke that he is not under pressure to settle down with any woman.

"I am kind of single. I have been busy working and traveling but I don't know what to say. That question might not help people but yes am single," he said.

Ben Pol added that he is open and women can shoot their shots.

Asked to explain any lessons he picked from his previous marriage, Ben Pol said that every marriage is different.

"I don't regret it as it is just a phase to take lessons from."

"I am not looking for a lover but I am open to love and if love comes, I will be okay. I am just living my life genuinely and enjoying my life."

Asked why he filed for divorce Ben Pol said;

"You cannot pinpoint one thing and say this is what happened. It is the universe that allowed us to go separate ways. Both of us. I can say it was God's plan."

Recently, Harmonize engaged his 42-years-old lover Kajala.

Ben Pol congratulated him saying he would pursue his dream woman just like Harmonize did.

"If I want to have her in my life and maybe I hurt them, I would chase that woman the same and especially if there is love and not because of social media or family pressure." 

Ben Pol is in the country to promote his new single titled 'Kijanisha' (make something Green).

It's a project in which Ben Pol has partnered with various artists among them, including Christina Shusho, Joh Makini, Frida Amani, Justdiggit and Lead Foundation.

The song seeks to shed light on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to end poverty, conserve biodiversity, combat climate change and improve livelihoods for everyone, everywhere.

"I have gone to the field many times to see what Justdiggit has done. I also do waste segregation as there are some wastes which can be recycled and be used elsewhere. Everyone else can do that to preserve our environment," he said.

"Everyone should play a part in talking about conserving our environment and climate change since the impact will hit all of us."
