Two years ago Simon Kabu gifted his wife Sarah a brand new Range Rover worth 30 million for her 39th birthday bringing Nairobi City to a standstill.
According to Simon his wife deserved a range rover and more since she had stood by him, furthermore it was her dream car.
Since then things have never been the same for the couple, speaking about it during an interview on Radio Jambo, Sarah said,
‘That car gift was on my 39th birthday
on my 35th birthday I was bought a Mercedes but he did not publicize it.
After picking it from Mombasa he put it in the parking when I woke up I found it there.
So we were working towards getting a range rover for my 40th birthday.
But my husband knew if he bought it and brought it home I would see it and that it would not be a surprise anymore.
I was so madly in love with the 2017/2018 model.
Sometimes I would get stranded admiring it in traffic.’
Sarah said that on the material day she was gifted the car she had not suspected any suspicious behavior from her husband.
‘I woke up came to the office and I knew we might go for dinner to a special place given we were not travelling.
Sometimes I keep my hair untidy but that day he insisted I go to the salon.
I went to work and as my sister and I were going out for lunch my husband offered to buy us lunch.
Sarah was however not impressed with the offer.
‘INstead of taking us to some fancy place.
My husband offered to buy us lunch on the third floor the same building we worked.
I was disappointed because I was wondering ‘why would my husband buy me lunch at the same place we had lunch everyday?’
I knew if I had gone with my sister she would have taken me to a fancy place maybe Serena, Kempinski etc.
So I was feeling my husband akinibore, at that moment.’
What Sarah did not know is that her husband had something up his sleeves.
‘I was so bored and pissed off then I heard a commotion and saw people in motorbikes singing happy birthday.
He asked me to go out with him but I hate public attention, plus miguu iliisha nguvu.
All in all, It was a good surprise.
Since then for the past two birthdays I have been very evasive.
If I knew he would gift me a car in public I would have stopped it.
The couple was however not ready for the challenges that came with their show of public display of affection.
‘After that we did not know that would be a problem.
Now every slay queen tells him ‘Ooh I want a Vitz.’
I heard people were asking kwani nampea design gani ndio aninunulie gari.’
We have logins to each others social media accounts. During the New Year a slay queen wrote,
‘Happy new year, my goal is to go out with you, please make it happen.
we meet such DM’S everyday.’
Speaking about how it is like working with her husband on a daily basis, Sarah said,
‘It’s not all lovey dovey as people assume. When we get to the office it’s all work.
We are usually very busy.
There are days we are not in talking terms but when we get to the office management decisions have to be made so you have to talk and give your opinions.
We never mix personal issues with business. If you find us getting mad at each other then it’s something serious.’
Bonfire Adventures boss Sarah Kabu had in a past social media post confessed that it took a lot of will for her not to fall for sponsors back in the day.
Sarah who is now the boss of Kenya’s leading tour and travel company says,
AT 22 YEARS WHEN I STARTED WORKING AS AN INTERN AND MANAGED TO PAY FOR MY FIRST TRIP TO 14 FALLS THROUGH A CHURCH YOUTH GROUP.
Sarah adds that her values kept her in check
I NEVER COMPROMISED MY VALUES DATING OLD DIRTY SPONSORS LIKE COLLEGE SLAY QUEENS DO NOWADAYS.
THEM DAYS THEY USED TO BE CALLED TUSHUNGWA NA SUGAR DADDY’S.
I USED TO SURVIVE ON ONE MEAL A DAY THAT IS DINNER BIG UGALI OR RICE.
DAY TIME SNACKS WERE MOSTLY SWEETS, BISCUITS, MANDAZI, CHAPATI AND BREAD...
