Betty Kyalo speaks out on Okari, Msalame tweets


It seems like Kenyans on Twitter will not let the media couple of Dennis Okari and Betty Kyalo rest easy even after last Friday’s drama with musician Prezzo.

Old tweets of Dennis Okari on Monday resurfaced online giving the impression that he once dated Kiss TV’s Grace Msalame.

Ms Msalame thereafter tweeted Mr Okari on how idle online users were and were now fishing out what she termed as “Twitter child’s play from 3yrs ago.”

KTN’s Betty Kyalo, who got married to Okari last year, came to the defense of Ms Msalame tweeting, “I can tell you for a fact she is not. Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. People can be malicious.”


Mr Okari has been silent on the trolls that started when he openly criticized Prezzo for his inappropriate behaviour on air in Betty’s weekly Friday Briefing show.

Prezzo appeared on the show drunk making it uncomfortable for the presenter Betty who at some point called for help from her director.

The singer’s mother reportedly called and apologised to Betty for her son’s behaviour on live television.

Since the incident, trolls have taken on the media couple in attempts to discredit their marriage.

Twitter conversations between Okari and Classic 105’s Tina Kagia have also been resurfaced that show both media personalities referring to each other as “love.”
