Gospel singer Peter Omwaka, otherwise known as Guardian Angel, 32, has proposed to his girlfriend, Esther Musila, on her 51st birthday.
The singer went down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage during a birthday bash held in Karen, Nairobi. An emotional Esther said, “Yes”.
Appearing on Bonga na Jalas, Esther disclosed that she met Guardian through Maina Kageni before their love blossomed after months of knowing each other.
“I had restrained myself from ever having an interview but I think it good for me to also fight for myself because some people judging me or talking about me, they don’t know my life, they don’t know my journey they are probably even hurting my kids with the things they are saying. And I want to put this straight, I am 50-year-old I have been through life and I know what I want with the reminder of my life that God has given me, my mother died at 72 years and that very young and if I have to live to the life she lived, that’s 20 years and I want those to be my best life starting now.
I remember when this year started I said to myself I have been through life 50 is a big year but I purposed and said this is going to be my year, I would do what Esther wants and I will make Esther happy, my kids are grown, the last born is 22 years, they are running their lives, but am still their mother but as Esther I have my life a which I want to live. So I am living my life, my rules, I am happy and Guardian said we met through Maina Kageni” said Esther Musila in part.
In a video posted on his Instagram, Angel captioned, “YES !! THANK YOU, MY LOVE. She left home knowing we were going to sign a deal; it turned into a birthday surprise then turned into the most special day of my life.”
Esther also shared the news with her fans and followers with the same video captioned,” OH MY GOD – I said YES again.”
Guardian had a day earlier penned a heartwarming Instagram post celebrating Esther for transforming his life.
“I was empty, you filled up space. I was incomplete, you completed me. I almost gave up on my career, you came into my life when a lot of things were breaking down, but within a short period, you transformed everything and brought my life into a beautiful shape,” he wrote.
The 32-year-old musician went ahead and assured his girlfriend of his unending love, saying he was certain she’s was ‘the one’ from the moment he fell in love.
“Since the first day I fell in love with you, I have always been confident that you are the one. I am proud I chose you. You have made me believe that there is true love. It is amazing how you love me. I can go on and on, my love, but for now, let me wish you blessings,” he added.
The couple went public with their relationship back in September 2020, eliciting varied reactions from netizens, who mostly expressed concern over the huge age difference between the two.
