Popular actor Samm Komorah and his wife Aysha Zahoor met on Instagram. They serve us couple of goals and through her YouTube channel, Aysha has been documenting her life.
Recently, Aysha revealed that she was deaf and her story touched many.
‘I lost my hearing at the age of 13. I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING ONE DAY AND I COULDN’T HEAR ANYTHING INCLUDING THE BIRDS CHIRPING. THE ONLY THING I WAS HEARING WAS TINNITUS (BUZZING AND RINGING SOUND) BUT I COULDN’T HEAR AROUND ME. I WAS SHOCKED. I RAN DOWNSTAIRS WHERE MY DAD AND UNCLE WERE AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I COULDN’T HEAR, THEY THOUGHT I WASN’T SERIOUS. EVERYONE IGNORED ME AND THOUGHT IT WAS JUST AN INFECTION. IT DID HURT WHEN PEOPLE THOUGHT I WAS JUST EXAGGERATING,’ she said.
MY HEARING IS VERY BAD. I HAVE A PROFOUND HEARING, I’M COMPLETELY DEAF. I CAN’T HEAR ANYTHING AT ALL WITHOUT MY HEARING AID.
In her latest video, she talked about how she met the love of her life.
He [Samm] added me on Instagram and I accepted him and followed back. I started liking his pictures and he liked mine too. I added him on Snapchat, sent him a message on and he responded with a hi,’ she said.
Aysha revealed that a year before she had seen Samm with his friends at an event in Mombasa before meeting in Nairobi.
‘my pal and I planned a trip to Nairobi and Sam showed us around when there. That’s how we met.’
She went back to London and after 10 months she came back to the country and they met again.
He liked me and I started to like him too and he was sweet. I knew he would never hurt me coz the way he approached me at first, so respectful and look at where we’re now, this guy is a gem,’ she said
They have a kid together.
Apart from these two, other couples who met on Instagram include Risper Faith and her husband Brian and Tanasha donna and Diamond Platnumz [though they broke up].
