The sassy media personality is still looking for love.
In an interview on NTV in October 2021, the 46-year-old claimed she is yet to be married because of her status as an 'empowered woman' in the society.
“As an empowered woman, as a woman who has worked hard, who has been seen to do many things, it has been difficult for me to date,” the former Kiss 100 radio host said.
“I am still single because there’s that notion that you’re now a woman who cannot listen, will not help, whereas the reality is if I’ve worked hard and I’m doing well, I should be able to help even more."
Sheila Mwanyigha's name is synonymous with Kenyan radio and TV. She has been around for a while. Many remember from her music career as Nikki and her time as co-host at Tusker Project Fame.

“The first, I didn’t think he was the right person for me. The second time my dad died and I wasn’t ready to leave Kenya and relocate to Europe. It was six months before the wedding,” she told Milele FM in an interview.
“The third time I said no. You don’t marry a person you can live with, marry someone you can’t live without. I never want to settle. If you don’t love someone as much as they love you, you can’t marry that one person. You should marry someone you can’t live without,” she added.
The grapevine has it that the 'Niwe Wako Milele' hitmaker dated Hip Hop star Jackson Makini alias Prezzo during her time as an active recording artiste.
