Chiki clears the air amid claims she is in an open marriage with Bien

Chiki Kuruka has cleared the air following talk that she is in an open marriage with Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aimé Baraza.

This follows sentiments they made on Sol Family that suggested they were free to lust over other celebrities.

“Me and Chiki have this thing where if I ever meet my celebrity crush somewhere and I am in a situation where my celebrity crush wants to ‘engage in coitus’ with me, then so be it and vice versa.

“I don’t have a problem with it if that is what she wants, she should get it. You can’t stop a human being from doing that. But also I can’t catch feelings, I’m after her happiness,” said Bien.

Speaking to Standard Entertainment, Chiki stated that the comments were taken out of context during the show as they were just sharing a light moment.

She, however, emphasized that they both value honesty and openness as key ingredients of their relationship even if it means speaking about their celebrity crushes.

“Bien and I were cracking jokes on Sol Family, and that’s how a comment was interpreted. However, we both deeply agree with honesty and communication, even if that includes lusting over celebs.


“How it got so big is what's funny to me,” she said.

When we probed further about her take on open relationships and where she draws the line, Chiki was quick to stress that they like to keep their interactions private and she wants it to remain that way.

“Open communication? Yes. But I also don't believe our relationship is available for public involvement or entertainment. We (Bien and I) have always kept a lot of our interactions private, including our wedding.

“Allowing the public into your private life is unhealthy after a certain point,” she said.

Adding: “People should mind their business.”

The two wedded last year in a private ceremony that was attended by close friends and family.
