Tanzanian singer Ben Pol has allegedly filed for divorce from his wife Anerlisa Muigai, the Keroche Breweries heiress.
The couple is said to have confirmed that divorce proceedings are ongoing in a Tanzanian court, according to reports.
Pol whose real name Benard Michael Paul Mnyang’anga tied the knot with Anerlisa in a private ceremony held at St Gaspar Catholic Church, Mbezi Beach in Dar es Salaam in May 2020.
The development comes days after Anerlisa was rumored to be pregnant with the ‘Moyo Mashine’ hit-maker’s child.
Early this week, Anerlisa fueled speculation that her marriage was going south after she deleted Pol’s pictures from her social media page, unfollowed him, and dropped his name ‘Mnyang’anga’. She was also spotted without her wedding ring.
In November last year, Anerlisa admitted that she was not on good terms with her husband saying, “Somebody called me asking if I was aware my husband was live talking things she couldn’t understand and she even sent me screenshots. Unfortunately, I never got to watch but just to make it clear that we are not on good terms. I am a person who likes to protect my image and all I know is that I like being respected and any husband should do the same to their wife.”
Anerlisa, who is the owner of Nero Water company, is the daughter of Keroche Breweries proprietors Tabitha Karanja and her husband Joseph Karanja.
