Bold Network Africa CEO and Founder, Makena Njeri has set the record straight on the kind of relationship she shares with Marini Naturals CEO Michelle Ntalami whom she made it clear that they are not dating.
Speaking to Radio Jambo’s Massawe Japani, the former BBC journalist said that it is extremely wrong for people to interpret the closeness of her friendship with Ntalami as a romantic relationship since they are just good friends.
“Ni makosa sana kusema kwamba huyo (Michelle) ni bibi yangu, hiyo ni makosa sana kwa sababu my relationship with Michelle is that we are very, very good friends and if youi go to my Instagram you will find that I have posted so many people. Hata leo nikitoka hapa nitapost Massawe na nitakuongelesha kama rafiki yangu. Kwa hiyo hiyo ni Makosa kusema mtu ni bibi ya mtu ““It is a very big mistake to say that Michelle Ntalami is my wife. My relationship with Mitchelle is that we are very good friends, when you go to my Instagram you will find I have posted very many people.
I live my life very openly. If it comes a time when I will need to introduce my wife publicly, I will,” Makena told Massawe Japanni.
When asked whether she is in a relationship, Makena said her focus is on her recently launched media house;
“Let’s focus on Bold Network Africa. There is nothing like a wife right now, as long as you are in my inner circle, I appreciate my friends a lot.”
The former Tahidi High actress went add that despite dating men in her past life, she was unhappy as she was not living her truth.
Adding that when she came out as a member of the LGBTQ community, Ntalami has always been by her side despite her adversities during a time she was trolled for 3 months for living her truth.
“Our relationship and friendship was questioned so many times and you were dragged on the mud together with me so many times but not once did you fail to stand by me. Thank you for being a true friend through it all and when the idea of starting a company that will help other people like me to live their truth Boldly you were there through the discussions and when the time was right you held me down and who would have ever asked for a better person to come up with such a beautiful work of art a creative logo skillfully curated by you and a world class website that many have praised since we launched,” shared Ms Makena.
