The colourful wedding was held at Nyota Ndogo’s family home in Voi .This was however not Nyota’s first stint at the altar as she was previously married to Mombasa- based music producer K-Shot. But their marriage ended over close to 9 years ago with the couple citing ‘irreconcilable differences’.
“Why I rejected my husband’s proposal first only to accept it after two years” Mrs Nielsen reveals
On a fine Saturday on the 22 of May 2016, Nyota Ndogo officially settled down with her Danish fiancé Henning Nielsen.
The singer has two children from her marriage with K-Shot; children many told her would be an impediment to her next marriage as no man would accept another man’s ‘burden’.
Taking to one of her social media pages, Nyota Ndogo opens up about being left alone to take care of her kids after her marriage fell apart, her wedding and why she took 2 years to say yes to Henning Nielsen.
Sharing a photo of herself on her wedding day, she wrote
“This was the happiest day of my life.Na ninachojua Jua ni MUNGU ndio upanga kila kitu . Nilipokua nikifanywa makeup ilioitwa yakigosti. Kila kitu kinachotokea kwa mwanadamu ni mipango ya MUNGU. After kuzalishwa watoto wawili bila kupata msaada wowote wa kuwalea na kuambiwa hakuna mwanamume anaetaka kuoa mwanamke na mzigo wake yes nilikata tamaa . But nikasema nitawalea wanangu na wanangu watakua siku zote number moja na mwanamume akinitaka ajue atakua number 2. Wallai sikua desperate hata baada ya kukutana na mume wangu na kunivisha Pete na kuniambia TUOANE KESHO. Nikasema la kwa uoga wa Kua kwenye ndoa nikamwambia nipe 2 years tukiingiana kitabia tutafunga ndoa.yes miaka mawili ilipofika akanikumbusha and yes niliikua tayari.kwaivyo time ya MUNGU ni best. Niliposema no nipe 2 years’ time ilikua bado..MWANADAMU ASIJE KUKUKATISHA TAMAA HATA SIKU MOJA
Translation: This was the happiest day of my life; I believe God has plans for everything. This is when I had my makeup done and people said that it looked ghost-like.
Everything that happens to a human being is in God’s strategy. After having 2 kids without any help from their father, I was told that no man would marry a woman with children as it was a burden so I lost hope.
I promised myself that as i raise my kids I will always put them first; the man will come in at number two. I’ve never been desperate. And even after I met my husband and he proposed to me asking me to marry him the following day, said no because I was scared. So I asked him to wait for two years so that we could get to know each other before we got married.
After two years he proposed again and then I was ready. God’s timing is best. When I told him two wait for two years, the timing didn’t feel right. Don’t let any human being make you give up.
