JB Masanduku was set to wed his fiancée Jackie Karanja on August 24 this year but the couple decided to push it to November 11. The date was changed so that the couple can honor JB Masanduku’s late mum by marrying on her birthday.
JB Masanduku reveals wedding date and the A-listers invited to his exclusive ceremony
“That is my late mum’s birthday and I want to honour her as I honour the person I love. I have talked to my people and the plans are all set. She chose to honour my mum," he told Word Is.
For his big day, Masanduku has an A-list guest list that includes Teacher Wanjiku, DJ Shiti, Betty Kyallo, Churchill and Deputy President William Ruto.
This is JB Masanduku’s second marriage after his short marriage to Tina Kaggia. In an interview with Massawe Jappani, JB disclosed that he and Tina rushed into marriage. He revealed that he popped the question 11 days after meeting.
“I think we rushed, we didn’t take time to know each other. You know I proposed to her after 11 days of knowing her. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11, will you marry me? Yes. Twende kazi!” he confessed.
JB met Tina after he came for an audition at Radio Jambo. “I met her at Radio Jambo when I came for auditions and I was to do a show with Ghost. When I was doing a voice test in the studio, I saw a beautiful light skin girl who was waving. I asked the producer who that was and he said it was Tina Kaggia.”
JB later got a chance to work with Tina and after working together for a while their chemistry translated off air and JB decided to pop the question. Which was not a very good decision as they would drink a lot and fight.
“Honestly we used to drink a lot. There were arguments and her temper was as short as her so she used to beat me up. She would punch me... I had taken a couple of P3 forms,” he explained.
