In the past, we have seen very many celebs keep their weddings a ‘secret’. Why do people of such caliber choose to do things against public expectations?

Among those who held secret weddings is Bien Barasa of boys band Sauti Sol. So secretive was his wedding that no one was allowed to carry their phones.

Others include Bien Pol. The Tanzanian artiste married Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai in an invite-only ceremony in Tanzania.

People only got to know about it through social media.

We have in the past seen ex’s come to stop weddings just because they can’t get over the bride or groom.

Some also take advantage of the situation to ask for financial support in instances where a baby is involved.

We all know that Kenyans love meddling in other people’s affairs way too much. They are very bad critics and thus some people decide to keep their weddings a secret.

Like in the instance of Bien, he has never released his wedding photos to the public and he might never do so.

Why? Because people feel like they are entitled to decide what you will wear on your wedding, how much it should cost and who should make it for you.

So instead of having to worry about security, some people prefer intimate gatherings.
