Former NTV investigative journalist Dennis Okari is a happy man despite being off the screen for a while.
This is evident from the message he wrote to his wife Naomi Joy, to mark their two years in marriage.
Interestingly, the broadcaster, who broke up with glamorous former TV girl Betty Kyallo, remarried on his birthday.
Dennis started by noting that it didn’t feel like two years since the two officially became man and wife.
“It hardly feels like two years, as I still marvel at it. Every waking moment, I treasure and cherish you. You are the best gift God gave me during my birthday when, you said, ‘I do’,” he wrote.
Then came the love poem in which Okari showered all sorts of sweet names on his wife.
“Happy anniversary to my best friend, my soul mate, my joy, my dream come true, my shoulder to lean on, my everything, the love of my life, my wife. You are kind and comforting even in the most troubled times,” he poured his heart out.
Okari had a wonderful wish for his wife even as he looked forward to many more.
“May God fill your heart with dreams and cover you with the grace to tread through life with joy that’s unspeakable and full of glory. I love you and cheers to another milestone my always and forever,” he concluded.
Okari married Naomi on February 2019, in a lavish private wedding barely five years after his marriage to Betty Kyallo failed.
The two have kept their lives private unless for crucial occasions.
Betty has commented on Okari’s new relationship a number of times, saying she was happy for him.
The mother of one has not yet remarried, but she says she is ready for marriage again as she is now mature enough to handle it.
Betty, who is popularly known as Mama Ivanna, has always cited her young age and naivety as the main cause of her failed marriage with Okari.
“At that time I was young, I didn’t want marriage as such and I didn’t see its meaning. But right now, I have grown as a woman. I understand myself and I now know what I want. I’m ready to mend my ways so that I also get my ring. But now, I’m not in a hurry. Whoever God will send my way is who I will settle down with,” she said in a past interview.
However, Betty ruled out holding a grand wedding again in case she finds a love again.
She would prefer a civil marriage at the Attorney-General’s Chambers in downtown Nairobi and having a small lunch at a nearby restaurant.
