I aided my ex-husband in paying my bride price: Kaansime

Ugandan comedian Anne Kansiime has lifted the lid to the lengths she went just to solemnize her previous marriage.

The actor, in a post of her YouTube channel, suggested she was deeply in love with her ex-husband Gerald Ojok that she aided him in paying her bride price.

“I do not want to go into the details. I was married but you know how you end up paying some of it yourself. It is sad, do not look at me like that and I am now an empowered woman.”

Kansiime, who shot to fame with her ‘Don’t mess with Kansiime‘ show, ended her five-year marriage with Ojok in 2017.

The 33 year-old comedian also suggested she got stuck in marriage because she had co-habited for long.

“I accused someone of marrying me long enough for the whole world to believe it and him to believe it and I also believed it,” she explained.

“Later, when I realized that when you are married, it is when a man wakes up on his two feet, pays your bride price, takes you to church and then marries you; none of that had happened (between us).”

Now an ’empowered’ Kansiime advises ladies not to repeat the ‘mistakes’ she made.

Kansiime: Why my marriage failed

Celebrated Ugandan comedienne Anne Kansiime has revealed why her four-year marriage to ex-husband Gerald Ojok collapsed in mid-2017.

The rib cracker, who has been recently frequenting Kenya after landing a mega deal as the host of the upcoming East Africa’s Got Talent Show, has however refuted claims that her marriage hit rock bottom because of infidelity, as has widely been reported.

Instead, she says, one of the reasons was because she rushed into it and in the end it didn’t work.

“There was no infidelity in the marriage on my part. On his part, not unless we call him,” Kansiime explained in an interview with radio host Massawe Japanni.

She also revealed the life expectations and targets she had before she got married.

“I wanted to study, graduate, get a job, find a man and eventually settle down. I managed to do that, graduated, found a job, met a man and I thought everything was in order. I rushed into the marriage,” Kansiime said.

Currently, Kansiime is dating budding musician Skylanta, who she started seeing 11 months after parting ways with Ojok.

Although she has confessed her undying love for Skylanta, Kanssime remains tight-lipped on her future marriage plans.

“We will definitely inform you but after. We don’t know yet and we are not into spilling beans here,” Kansiime said in a separate interview.
