It is the month of love. Yes. We apologize for this post well in advance. Here is a list of gospel personalities whose marriages broke for one reason or another.
These gospels stars join other personalities who have undergone the same relationship stress including DNG and ex-wife Yvette Nungari, Mercy Myra and Attitude and Prezzo and Daisy Kiplagat. Here we go…
Eunice Njeri and Izzo
They are the talk of the town right now. Eunice Njeri’s engagement to Rapper Izzo – real name Ado Bukasa, was unexpected by friends and fans, alike. Their wedding took place only after they changed the wedding date twice.
Our source in Texas tells us that Eunice Njeri and Izzo were shopping around for a pastor to unite them in holy matrimony after the one they wanted turned them down.
This forced the celebrity couple to cosy up to Pastor Jackson Kingori of Neema Gospel Church in Texas.
Our source adds that the pastor is distraught over the turn of events and confirms that indeed, Eunice Njeri did not sign the marriage certificate.
“THE PASTOR IS SAYING THAT THEY DID GET AN OFFICIAL MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE WHICH THE PASTOR SIGNED AND THE TWO WITNESSES SIGNED. THEY BOTH DID NOT SIGN THE ACTUAL CERTIFICATE DURING THE CEREMONY. WHAT YOU SEE BEING SIGNED IN THE WEDDING VIDEO IS A BLANK PIECE OF PAPER FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO PURPOSES. THE CERTIFICATE WAS NEVER RETURNED TO THE REGISTRAR FOR IT TO BE OFFICIAL. APPARENTLY EUNICE RAN AWAY WITH IT.”
Gloria Muliro and Pastor Omba
Gloria Muliro recently opened up and gave a candid interview about how she got over her broken marriage.
She told the Star,
“I HAVE LOST IN LIFE. THERE WAS A TIME IN LIFE I WAS LIKE CRUSHING BUT THE LORD HELD ME. I HAD LOST MYSELF AND I FOUND MYSELF GOT MY SANITY BACK AND GOT MY PEACE BACK THAT IS A REFLECTION OF THAT COMING OUT.”

The public got to know about this when Gloria made headlines with her tell-all interview where she detailed that Pastor Eric Omba was having affairs with women he was “managing and recording”.
The public was shocked to say the least. Omba recently came out to show off his new boo, Bella Dee Lugano, whom he plans on wife-ing, soon.
However, when Omba was answering questions raised by his fans during a Q and A session online, he referred to Gloria as ‘his’ adding that he still loves her.
Betty Bayo And Kanyari
The couple was catapulted into the lime light when Pastor Kanyari was exposed on National TV in an investigative series called ‘Prayer Predators’. His antics were laid bare from using Potassium permanganate, to the Sh310 prayer scam and to groping women’s breasts in the guise of praying for their healing.
Betty Bayo was pressured into reacting to this, seeing as she is a respected member of the community and a loved gospel act.
“My phone was off until 9pm. When I switched it on, messages started flooding in. Some were abusive. I was confused. I logged on to Facebook and learnt that my husband’s story was being aired. I was shocked by what I saw. It was like a dream. I fainted. I couldn’t believe it. When I am with him, 95 per cent of his talk is about church and the gospel,” she told People.
Betty Bayo, the estranged wife of the controversial, self-proclaimed prophet-pastor Victor Kanyari parted ways with him and she moved on and got a child with another man. This was despite the rumour that the “man of God” was trying to woo her into accepting him back but she refused. Ever since she “divorced” Kanyari, Betty has been enjoying life and a look at her current pictures are proof enough.
Hey-Z and Mercy Njoki
Gospel artist, Daniel Ng’ang’a Heho, popularly known as Hey-Z Da Brand, got the shock of his life when he found out that his fiance of six years was dating her boss.
Hey-Z has no option but to end his relationship with former Tahidi High actress, Mercy Njoki.
“SHE CHEATED ON ME WITH HER BOSS AND I ASKED THAT GUY ARE YOU F*CKING MY WIFE OR NOT? HE SAID NO,” HEY-Z NARRATED.
He also said that his lifestyle – which sees him traveling for numerous business trips – might have been the reason she had the affair in the first place.

Brenda Wairimu and Juliani
Brenda Wairimu and Juliani make this list because they were the most coveted celebrity couple and also being one of the hottest couples around. It was a perfect mix of dark chocolate with a swirl of light chocolate. The couple has a beautiful daughter together. They have also been together through thick and thin but the worst finally got to them. They are usually on-off-on again-off again-on, on again-off off again. To be honest, I don’t know which phase these two are on, at the moment.
Veteran Tanzanian gospel singer Bahati Bukuku has made some brave admissions about why her marriage did not work out. In an interview with Tanzanian press, Bahati revealed she is divorced. Speculation was rife that the singer may have slept with her husband’s doctor so that he can forget them off his huge medical bill.
This was premised from her music release for the single Dunia Haina Huruma. The storyline of the video follows the life of a woman who struggled to raise money to offset a huge medical bill due to her husband’s hospitalization. The woman is frustrated by the accrued bill and has no means of offsetting it. She is propositioned by the doctor and she gives in because she wants her husband back home.
When she tells the husband about the one off rendezvous, he gets angry and leaves her. Her fans and the public alike have speculated that the music video storyline mirrors her life.
Speaking to EATV’s Kikaango Show, Bahati Bukuku clarified that her divorce “somehow” inspired the storyline and theme of the single.
“My now ex-husband did not do such a thing (leave her following her confession of sleeping with his doctor). Though there’s a part of the song which was drawn from my real-life experience. Irreconcilable differences was the premise for our divorce. I cannot lie about a man who was my husband, even if I author a book, I will always say I was married before but the union did not work out,” Bahati Bukuku said.
Pastor Alexander Nduati and Naserianne Sintako
The tale of marital woes between Pastor Alexander Nduati and his wife, Naserianne Sintako, is entangled with singer Dunco’s failed engagement.
What happened was – Dunco was left homeless after their relationship failed and was housed by Pastor Alexander.

The couple then decided to give their marriage a chance and moved houses. The hubby also changed jobs from PAC BuruBuru to Nairobi Chapel.
Called for comment, Alexander told Mpasho, “At this point i, not okay with it. I would like it private. i’m not good with public THINGS. I will not make any comment on that.
Loise Kim has plans of running for a political seat this coming elections. Speaking to Kikuyu Diaspora television she shed light about her marriage an issue that has been shrouded in controversy since she released a song that was speculated to have been about separation with her spouse.
Loise Kim song “Wedo wa Kiabiriria” which can be loosely translated to the “First Love” became very popular but also opened a can of worms regarding her marriage. Loise Kim, who narrated how her marriage fell apart after just seven months of being together said she sang the song because of the state of her relationship.
“When i was singing that song i was bitter about my marriage, we went our separate ways because we let the devil come between us, after he left we used to exchange bitter words which made things worse” she said.
She has two children with her ex-hubby and they have since divorced. She added, “I let go of everything and decided to live my life and my ministry”.
Pastor Joan Wairimu Githuku and Bishop William Musyoki Mwangangi
Pastor Joan Wairimu Githuku is a gospel artiste known for the hit Pambazuka na Yesu. She made headlines when she announced that she wants to divorce her bishop husband.
Pastor Joan Wairimu Githuku and her husband have both filed cases in court accusing each other of adultery. The couple got married in 1996 in church. Pastor Wairimu claims he has had many adulterous affairs with known and unknown women causing her to suffer great embarrassment. She has listed five women including house girls she claims her husband has slept with since 1996. She also claims the bishop has sired a child out of wedlock as a result of his adulterous actions, but the bishop denies the accusation.
Bishop William Musyoki Mwangangi told The Nairobian that Pastor Joan Wairimu Githuku still remains “a dream woman to love.”
The bishop said his love for Pastor Wairimu “will never end.” “Our differences are solvable. I love her and she still is the woman of my dreams,” the bishop said.
The matter is still in court.
Pastor Nganga and Loise Murugi Maina
Pastor James Maina Ng’ang’a’s wedding was as grande and grande can get in the gospel world. The Neno Evangelism pastor known for his miracles and controversial lifestyle wed Loise Murugi Maina at an event attended by the who is who in society.
The wife dropped a bombshell when she filed for divorce seeking over half a million shillings a month in child-support for their one year daughter.
In her court documents, Loise claims that their marriage was in chaos as soon as it started, when she discovered a side of Pastor Maina she never knew of. According to her, Maina would text and call other women late at night which was very hurtful at the time but she realized that was just the least of her worries as he had other affairs that even ended up with him bringing women to their matrimonial bed.
“Pastor Ng’ang’a to my surprise was a drunkard and very abusive to me”, Loise claimed. She claims that she also learned that he would sleep with his staff and other members of the congregation, including married women.
The matter is still in court.
