Ghanaian YouTuber Wode Maya and his long time Kenyan girlfriend Gertrude Awino Juma, also known as Miss Trudy, are married.
The lovebirds, both Youtubers, who have been together for almost four years tied the knot on Saturday, September 10, 2022 in a simple wedding at Trudy’s rural home in Western Kenya.
The private wedding was attended by Trudy’s family and relatives.
Wode Maya flew into Kenya with six people from Ghana, among them his uncle and pastor, who officiated their union.
The Ghanaian YouTuber, with over 1 million subscribers, paid dowry for Trudy, and in a video posted on his YouTube page, Maya made his way to his in-law’s homestead holding a goat and a cow, accompanied by his family.
The vocal YouTuber said his father-in-law didn’t ask for a lot. Trudy got married on the day she lost her mother 10 years ago.
Trudy’s dad got emotional and sobbed unconsolably after his daughter officially married the lover of her life.
“My dad was so emotional. I have never seen my dad like that. It was like he was heartbroken… he made me cry. It was an emotional moment because he is my only parent,” Trudy said. Speaking about their wedding, the lovebirds revealed they spent GH¢8,516.60 (KSh 100,000) on their ceremony.
“God sent people our way to make this happen and we are so grateful,” the Kenyan YouTuber said.
“My ring is so expensive. I’m scared of walking with it in the streets of Nairobi,” Trudy said.
