Two months after their engagement, the new celebrity gospel couple in town of Lucy Natasha and Stanley Carmel has officiated the love affair.
On Saturday, the two love birds hosted a traditional wedding in Nairobi, a colourful ceremony that was organised by the couple’s families.
Even though details on the function remain scanty with the media having been left out of the arrangements, an excited-sounding Natasha let the cat out of the bag through Instagram posts, in which she announced the progress towards the much-awaited big church wedding day.
“Early today leaving for our traditional wedding…Such a great joy seeing our families cementing the lovely bonds we share,” Natasha captioned on her Instagram page on Saturday evening, a photo of her and her prophet heartthrob all smiles doing the talking.
Both of them were in white apparel, artistically designed with an aesthetic golden touch all matching their jewelry and extras.
Invited guests were mostly in black with a touch of African-inspired Ankara prints.
“Dancing moments in our traditional wedding. May God give you a reason to celebrate this year. I have found the one who my soul loves,” Natasha charmed on as she shared more images of their happy moments.
The flamboyant Nairobi city preacher and her fiancé Carmel have been in the news since they got engaged at the Boma Hotel, Nairobi, during a private ceremony attended by friends.
Prophet Carmel, who is believed to have been courting Natasha for over a year now, was dressed in traditional white Indian attire paired with red shoes as he got down on one knee to ask for Natasha’s hand in marriage.
“My Love Carmel may the rest of our life’s journey together will be filled with God’s grace, blessings, provisions, protection and guidance,” she captioned the photos.
Since then, the two have been ministering to their followers at the Nairobi church which is quickly becoming an attraction to many worshippers.

She Was Young At The Time, Tanasha Donna On Grudge With Bey T
Barely two years after Tanasha Donna and Bey T stormed the internet to fight over a catchphrase, Tanasha has finally given details on her beef with the rapper for the first time.
According to the musician, the misunderstanding came after they both disagreed on an issue.
In an interview with KISS FM, the musician cum entrepreneur said Bey T was young and was misled by people into instigating petty quarrels.
“Honestly speaking I think it was just a misunderstanding, it started over a quote, the ‘Kenya to the world’ thing. And I like she was young at the time and like people tried instigating drama. You know how people can be… people can easily corrupt one’s mind, especially when there is nothing going on,” she said.
According to Tanasha, it is easy to have the feeling that people are out to kill your shine when starting, especially as a young girl in a competitive industry.
“Talking from experience as a young girl you can feel easily like people are out to get you or steal your shine…but I feel like she’s a great artist so she was trying to spit some bars which she is amazing at and I’ll give her credit for that,” she added.
The mother of one confirmed that they have a good relationship following their beef and now are both open to the idea of collaborating with Bey T even though the two have never met yet.
“Why not? I mean I like her music and she’s amazing. Plus, right now, we’re at a good place, we haven’t really met but we have people in common whom we work with,” she said.
Amid their banter, Bey T went ahead to drop a diss track called ‘Don to the Donna’ attacking Tanasha for allegedly sampling her music in 2019.
“Someone tell Tanasha to stop wave riding,” Bey T wrote on Instagram at the time.
According to the rapper, the phrase “Kenya to the World” originated from her, but Tanasha stole it.

NAACP partners with Lancôme to offer the Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, which focuses on empowering women through literacy, mentorship, and entrepreneurship.
Lupita, who is the Lancôme Ambassadress, indicated that she always had big dreams from childhood and education played a huge part in helping her realize them.
“I believe that learners change the world. I am so thrilled to join Lancôme, on behalf of their Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, to award this incredible group of women with these game-changing scholarships,” she said.
Popular Kenyan website, Tuko.co.ke, reported that two years ago, Lupita Nyong’o was nominated for four awards in the 51st edition of the NAACP Image Awards.
The actress, who did not manage to attend the award ceremony, emerged as a winner in two of the four categories she was nominated.
Lupita won the Best Actress award for her role in Jordan Peele’s movie and her second award was for Outstanding Literary Work Children for her book Sulwe.
