According to Rashid the two had not met before but one day he heard a euphonious voice that he could not resist. He told himself he must meet the person with such a lovely voice.
When the two met he knew from the beginning she was love of his life. Unlike many who date for soo many year before taking the next move, the two just took only two weeks before they got engaged.
After they got engaged they started wedding plans and as you know for a wedding to take place the man must pay dowry before planning other things. In most cases when men go for a dowry negotiation the elders from the girl’s side always ask for things that adds up to almost Ksh200k or more.
However, in Rashid case it was different as he only submitted a prayer mat and Quran to Lulu’s parents and they gave their blessings. At the time Rashid was earning Ksh5,000 per month and he could not afford much as the pride price.
After the engagement the two moved in together but surprisingly the two maintained high level of discipline as they never made love until their wedding night in 2013. Despite dating for only two weeks the couple have stayed together for 11 years.
The two are considered as the hottest couple in town and they have achieved a lot as couple with many films in Kenya in their credit as producer including Maria, Zora, Aziza and Moyo. The two have also bagged a couple of endorsement deals. Rashid is a dad of three lovely kids two girls and a boy.
