Kate Kamau popularly known as Celina has just set the bar high for those looking forward to holding ruracio ceremonies.


Ruracio is the traditional dowry negotiation and payment ceremony.

Before the groom’s family is allowed into the house, the women of both houses sing songs at the entrance of the home. This vocal tussle is done to illustrate the coming together of two families, that start off singing two different songs but end up in sync.

Over the weekend, Celina’s longtime fiancé Phil Karanja paid a visit to his heartthrob’s parents to pay dowry ahead of their wedding which is said to be a few weeks from now.

Unlike many ruracio where people dress up in their best kitenge get up, Celina’s was quite different. It was very classy from the dress code to the venue and even how it went down.

Dressed in an African Ankara form hugging dress, designed by former radio presenter cum designer Neomi Nganga, Celina looked absolutely gorgeous! Her fashion sense is on another level.

Well, the ceremony was attended by family members and close friends among them comedian Njugush, producer Abel Mutua.

Celina and Phil have been dating for several years now and their relationship has always left many green with envy. Basically, they are a match made in heaven. Ohh so perfect.
