Tanzanian musician Benard Paul Mnyang’anga aka Ben Pol has filed for divorce from his wife Anerlisa Muigai barely a year after their wedding. A highly placed source close to the two confirmed that the divorce proceedings had begun in earnest at a court in Mwanzo, Tanzania.
The two tied the knot in May 2020 at St Gaspar Catholic Church in Mbezi Beach, Tanzania, in an event that was attended by close friends and family. Recently, Keroche heiress Anerlisa was spotted without her wedding ring. A quick tour on her Instagram page revealed that she had scraped off her husband’s name from her bio, and she had removed the title, ‘Wife to Ben Pol’.
Anerlisa had also unfollowed her husband on the platform. This further fueled rumors that their marriage was on the rocks even though in the past the Nero CEO warned against speculation around her life unless she confirms it.
This comes barely a month after she shared a cryptic message with her fans on social media before taking a hiatus hinting that she might be expecting her first child with Pol. Through her Insta stories, Anerlisa had shared a video of herself holding the alleged bump and captioned it, “How I feel today.”
Before she went utterly missing from Instagram, Anerlisa had noticeably reduced her time online, hardly posting pictures of herself and limiting fan interactions. Last year, she revealed that things were not good in her marriage. She disclosed that someone had informed her that Ben Pol was live on Instagram, but she quickly clarified that the two were not on good terms.
“Somebody called asking if I was aware that ‘my husband’ was live talking things she couldn’t understand, she even sent me screenshots. Unfortunately, I never got to watch, but just to make it clear that we are not in good terms,” Anerlisa wrote.
She further stated that she respects and protects her image at all costs, and thus, her husband should do the same. “I am a person who likes to protect my image, and all I know is that I like being respected, and any husband should do the same to their wife,” she wrote at the time.
