Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Baraza has once again sparked open relationship talk about his marriage with professional dancer Chiki Kuruka.
The celebrity couple, who tied the knot in March 2020, had previously made comments on open relationships stirring an online debate about their union. They later refuted the claims, saying that their comments were taken out of context.
Speaking during an interview with ‘Over Twenty Five’ show last week, Bien sparked a new debate after revealing that he would not expect to be the only man his wife will be with, 30 to 40 years in marriage.
Bien added that the dynamics of their relationship would have changed then and that sex would have ceased being a deal-breaker in their union.
The talented vocalist further revealed that if his wife fell in love with someone else, he would not be an impediment in her quest to actualize her ‘fantasy’. Bien was however quick to note that they are not in an open relationship.
“Let’s say I am married to Chiki for 30/40 years; I am not expecting that am the only dude she will be with.
“If she goes and meets the crush of her life, jibambe babe. I’m not in an open relationship. All am saying is that during such a time, the deal-breaker won’t be sex.
“It can be trust or the business we have built together because the dynamics of a relationship keep changing. No one person can own a human being. I don’t own my wife. She is her own woman,” Bien said.
He added that it was prudent for partners to identify their hobbies and things they can do on their own claiming that it was not advisable for couples to peg their happiness on their spouses.
“There is a notion that once I am married to you I am now your property and my happiness is tied to you and you keep saying ‘you are my man’. I am my own man. When you are with somebody you are not supposed to own them. You are to experience them,” he said.
