Dennis Okari and Olive Burrows

From the night of Monday, July 16th 2018, the on-screen chemistry seen between Dennis Okari and Olive Burrows was palpable forcing many Kenyans to wish the two would start dating.

But this was not to be as news emerged that Betty Kyallo’s former husband had secretly tied the note with a mystery woman in Ukambani October 27th.

This shocked many and broke some people’s fantasies of the T.V duo of Dennis and Olive ending up together. But how does Olive herself feel about the situation?

She spoke to Nation and she was asked about the viral picture of her helping Okari to tie his tie.



She responded:

That picture was not taken with our knowledge. I’m a woman. Deno is a guy. And, not that I have much experience with makeup, he was sort of doing the wrong thing with the brush and I wanted to help him. I can say we have grown comfortable with one another and that is a thing I would do for a friend. Our chemistry is genuine.

Did she heed the advice to get married to Okari from “concerned” Kenyans after the video went viral? She replied:

That is not gonna happen.

What went through the T.V anchor’s mind when she was paired with the experienced veteran like Okari?

We had never met before, I don’t know, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know if he was someone who is friendly or a snob. Deno was himself and he allowed me to be myself. He was honest with me. He kept telling me to slow down because I speak very first. He helped guide me and improve my skills.
