Ben Pol's explosive interview a few days ago with 'Simulizi na Sauti' was never going to put his ex-lover Anerlisa Muigai in a good light, that we all know.
The Keroche heiress came out worse for wear after the shocking revelations from the Tanzanian singer.
Some of the things that the singer has alleged are that;
- Anerlisa was prideful that men were sliding into her DM's.
- Anerlisa's family didn't attend her own wedding in Tanzania.
- That Anerlisa is the one who initially wanted a separation a few months after getting married.
- Ben hinted that she wanted a gag order put on him because he knows her in a way that the public doesn't. That the public only knows a representation of who she is.
From the interview, one could tell that Ben Pol was framing himself as the less guilty party(victim) in the demise of the marriage.
And how did Anerlisa who prefers fighting her battles on social media and with passive aggression, respond? She tried to stay above the fray writing,
''A real woman avoids drama, she knows her time is precious and she is not wasting it on unimportant things.''
She further added that people who are intimidated by you talk bad about you with hopes that others won't find you so appealing.
''A man is supposed to provide and protect not beg and collect. Some people aren't loyal to you, they are loyal to their need changes, so does their loyalty. Insecure people put others down to raise themselves up.''
Was her response the best one in such a situation like this? I think not. Kill them with silence I say. You are so much bigger and have moved on so much so that you don't take note when someone is sniping at you.
Like the analogy of the dog barking at the stars. Anerlisa should just have ignored the jabs that came from the interview-which might well have been true after all.
But who could/would know that? Only she and her ex-hubby. But now that she responded(even cyrptically), she gives air and thrust to Ben's story.
Also, a quiet defense like the one Jesus displayed when he was being tried would have helped her in the court of public opinion. The gallery doesn't defend the mighty but those who look weak.
But what do I know...
