Diana Marua and Bahati’s reality TV careers are getting hotter by the minute with their ‘Being Bahati’ reality show garnering millions of views. A show where they let the world into their personal lives.
Bahati’s relationship with Diana Marua who is a few years his senior has been a major source of interest and unfortunately bullying with fans calling Diana ‘shosh’. Use of the name increased significantly after news of what allegedly transpired at the ‘EMB Jesus Party’ came to light.
But for Diana Marua, their age difference is not a big deal as Bahati has exhibited more maturity when compared to his older counterparts.
“People have pointed out that he is younger than me. When we started out, it did not bother me because Bahati is more mature than most men older than me in his thinking,” Diana told True Love Magazine.
During the interview, Diana finally ended the mystery around her age by revealing that she is actually 30 and not 27 as her husband-to-be had earlier revealed.(Bahati will be 25 in 2019 and he had earlier said that they had a 2-year age difference, something which Diana confirmed in an interview with #TheTrend).
“Diana Marua was born to a Luo father and Kikuyu mother 30 years ago. Her father worked in a private hospital in the city while her mother was a housewife,” reads an excerpt from the interview.
Bahati defends Diana
While most people are bothered by the age gap, Bahati revealed that he chose Diana as an older woman wouldn’t ‘stress him out’. “I’m proud of my wife’s age, I always wanted an older woman, I matured up at the age of 12, growing up in the ghetto and I knew I’d want a woman who wouldn’t stress me out,” Bahati told Edaily.
Bahati also defended his fiancée by declaring that although she is old, she is hot and fondly commented ‘Shosh wa Bahati ameivaa’ on a post of Diana dancing.
