We’ve all heard stories where people break up with their long time partners and immediately marry the next person they date. Well, these celebs are no different. Some of these celebs were already engaged but they ended up marrying partners we weren’t expecting. Here are celebs who shocked us after they married partners they had just met:

Willis Raburu

We don’t know about you, but we feel like Raburu married Marya Prude out of nowhere. This is because before tying the knot with Marya, Willis was engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Sally Mbilu. Their engagement was highly publicized because, at the time, Willis went on one knee and asked Sally to marry him with a ring worth Ksh 100,000! However, the relationship didn’t work out after that and a year later, Willis married the beautiful Marya. Willis and Marya got married only 3 months after they were engaged. Talk about moving fast! 

Even so, their marriage didn’t last. Things started to go downhill when the two suffered the loss of their child and rumours started going around that Raburu was unfaithful. The two have since confirmed that they had finalized their divorce. 

Dennis Okari

After a long relationship and finally a short marriage with Betty Kyallo, It didn’t take long for Dennis Okari to move on. In February 2019, Okari found love again and wedded Joy Naomi. The wedding was low key, colourful and the love birds were surrounded by close relations compared to what he had with Betty.


Hip hop musician, Khaligraph Jones had for a while dated fellow artist, Miss Cashy when the two broke up and Khaligraph moved on. The two, Khalighraph and Cashy were couple goals in the music industry, even releasing a few hits together. However, after they broke up, Khaligraph didn’t take long because he got married soon after and had a child with the lady. The two have two kids since tying the knot in 2019!

Shaffie Weru

In the early 2000s, radio personality Shaffie Weru and singer, Debbie Asila were one of the most publicized couples in showbiz. The two who were planning their wedding, however, did not go through the wedding. They broke up in 2007 with a child together and before we could even process the news, Shaffie had moved on with another woman.

Just months after splitting with Debbie, Shaffie married a single mum of one, Joan Mwihaki. However, four years into the marriage and a daughter later, the two split up.
