Tanzania — Tanzanian singer and songwriter Ben Pol has confirmed filing for a divorce from his wife Arnelisa Muigai.
Ben Pol, through his management, shared the news on Instagram and has asked his fans and followers for privacy.
“At this time, Ben Pol would like to confirm that his divorce proceedings are in progress at the primary court but have not yet been finalized. These proceedings are a very private matter and he will not discuss any details out of respect for all parties involved. He kindly asks that space and privacy be given to him and his family during these challenging times,” read the statement.
The divorce is yet to be finalized as the proceedings are in progress at the primary court (Mwanzo Court in Dar es salaam).
The Singer’s statement comes just a few days after his ‘wife’ Arnelisa Muigai confirmed signing divorce papers.
“I would like to make it clear that I signed Whatever was needed to be signed and I do not wish to be associated with anyone. My focus right now is Career and My peace.” Said Arnelisa
The two tied the knot at a private wedding ceremony held in the leafy suburbs of Mbezi, Tanzania.
They started dating in 2018 and have been in married for 11 months.
In January, Arnelisa revealed that she was looking forward to starting a family with the singer.
A few days ago, she called out men sending her marriage proposals on Instagram.
“The number of people who are always ready to take over somebody else’s position is the reason why most relationships fail. If you go through my direct messages (DM), you would think I had a contestant to look for a partner. It’s really disgusting to see people offering to marry me, yet, they don’t even know me.
I am not looking for anybody and I am not free. And the 80 per cent boys in my DM, pull your socks and start working hard for your money. Looking for independent women to take care of you is really short term. Women get tired of taking care of you.”
