Former Machachari actor Tyler Mbaya alias Baha has said that he would not want to date a celebrity as it’s too much work and unwanted attention.

According to Baha, he would prefer someone who is a bit laid back. Speaking exclusively to Mpasho Baha said

‘No, I know people say that an artiste should date an artiste or someone in the same field as they are but I would never want to do so.

An artistes life is crazy and hectic and people know me out there so I wouldn’t want more attention.

further some people react differently to attention, wengine ni kulipuka tu.’

Asked on whether he replies to women who DM him, Baha said

‘I reply to DM’s but it depends on how they approach me.

Some people will see your profile and decide to approach you.

Don’t let that blue tick on my profile make you lower your ego to please me.’
