Kenyan rapper Colonel Mustafa and Songbird Mary Maina alias Marya were once the 'It Couple' in the Kenyan celeb culture and they dated for five years.
In a recent interview with 'Iko Nini Podcast', Mustafa expressed his regret in forcing his former lover into the music scene, an endeavour she didn't want at first.
"What happened is I think nilifanya makosa kumuingiza kwenye muziki... maybe hakuwa ready na hayo mambo because she didn't want that. Hakuwa anataka mambo ya muziki," Mustafa admitted.
Mustafa acknowledged the negative impact the decision had on Marya and their relationship noting that she now had options ultimately leading her to cheat on him.
"But sasa vile aliingia game akapendwa akahit, watu ni wengi huku nje, na watu wako na promises nyingi. So ikakuja ikakatika, watu waliingia wakaharibu na ikaisha hivo," he explained.
"Kitu iliharibu relatinship yangu na Marya si mambo na religion. It was something deep amabayo cheating ilikuwa katikati," he added.
The rapper recalls going through her phone while she was showering and there he realised his relationship had already ended.
"I was looking for her for two weeks na simuoni na tulikuwa tunaishi pamoja. When she came back I think she was going to a show and she left her phone. So vile niliingia kwa kabambe haikuwa na pin."
"Kuna vitu niliona hapo iliniacha na phobia ya simu hadi wa leo," the artiste recounted.
He recounted her conversations with the other guy.
"Kuna vitu niliona kama nyumba yote inanukia harufu yako ya marashi tangu uende. Plus vitu vingine ambavo waliongelea ambazo ziliniharibu kichwa hiyo time."
Mustafa on dating Huddah
The rapper also delved into his relationship with socialite Huddah Monroe which only lasted two weeks.
"You see me na Huddah, we only dated for two weeks na ikaisha, ikaisha na mambo mengi, sikumjua vizuri, and it takes time before you know a person well," the artiste stated.
Mustafa disclosed that their paths crossed in the studio, where they were initially set to collaborate on a music project which instead led to the brief entanglement.
He went on to reveal that he dated Huddah immediately after he broke up with fellow musician Marya.
