Popular Youtuber Wode Maya marries his Kenyan girlfriend
Ghanaian YouTuber Wode Maya and his longtime 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 house in western Kenya.
The private wedding was attended by Trudy’s family and loved ones.
Wode Maya flew to Kenya with six people from Ghana, including his uncle and pastor, who officiated their union.
The Ghanaian YouTuber, with over a million subscribers, paid the dowry for Trudy, and in a video posted on her YouTube page, Maya walked to her in-laws’ property holding a goat and a cow , accompanied by his family.
The vocal YouTuber said her stepdad didn’t ask for much. Trudy got married the day she lost her mother 10 years ago.
Trudy’s father became emotional and sobbed inconsolably after his daughter officially married the lover of her life.
“My dad was so emotional. I have never seen my father like this. It was like he was heartbroken…he made me cry. It was a touching moment because he is my only parent,” Trudy said. Talking about their wedding, the lovebirds revealed that they spent GH¢8,516.60 (KSh100,000) for their ceremony.
“God sent people our way to make this happen and we are very grateful for that,” the Kenyan YouTuber said.
“My ring is so expensive. I’m scared to walk with it on the streets of Nairobi,” Trudy said.
