Kenya is set to have its first same sex marriage after the first public lesbian engagement happened.
Grammo Suspect currently working on her spoken word album Embrace diversity with two singles outs, shared the moment online.
She narrated her meticulous planning and how she finally got her partner identified as Timeka to say yes at an event attended by close friends of the two.
Grammo Suspect popped up the all-important question on Tuesday having ensured she kept it a secret from her curvy partner Timeka.
She invited a number of guests who may not have been aware of the gravity of the situation in terms of its significance as well as the risk involved.
This is her narration
"I had so many ideas when planning for the surprise engagement party. But at last i settled for this one. Where I summoned her/my closest friends without her knowledge. It was hard coz it meant not letting her touch my phone for a few days,a few lies here and there because I couldn't tell her when i was going to collect the ring, the cake and everything else.
Also had to lock her in the kitchen for that whole day coz I didn't want her to see the room setup plus the visitors who were arriving at different intervals. When i finally brought her in the room, she got emotional. I almost regretted it but it was positive emotions.
I thank God and all the friends i. e Winnie Acquilline, Ras Kanish, Deno Juma, Ras Madedo, Sifu Bobby Thuku and all the others for helping me to push through.May God bless you big time, for i couldn't have accomplished this without you. Check out a little part of the video on how it went down. I love you #MySexyLolo Timeka Suspect"
While the LGBT community has not been subjected to witch hunts and violent attacks as in certain African countries.
However, the hate on the ground and lack of proper protection from the law has seen some attacked for their sexuality. The politicians and prominent clergy in the country have also spoken out against it.
Whether Grammo Suspect goes on and weds her partner only time can tell. However, this first act is sure to stoke up the gay rights talks. Here are photos from the occasion
