Kenyans on social media have continued to pile pressure on Citizen TV host Joey Muthengi to date popular Kenyan footballer McDonald Mariga.
In a number of posts on her social media page, netizens opined that the two, who work as ambassadors of a popular betting company ‘looked romantic together.’
“Who else is waiting for them to be a real couple?” asked a fan in a popular Facebook group, attracting hundreds of comments.
“I love their chemistry, then tuanze kuwachambua kama kawaida,” added the fan.
Tickled by the compliments, Muthengi took a screenshot of the post put it on her social media account and wrote, “Lmao, our relationship already fell apart. I’m sure this will be brutal.”
Their joint role as ambassadors has seen them travel together to different destinations sparking dating rumours.
But in an interview last month, Muthengi refuted claims that she’s warming the rich footballer’s bed saying their relationship is purely professional.
“No. We are not dating. The Milan outing was a business trip with a betting company (the billboards are up in Nairobi),” she said.
She once posted a photo wearing a blue shirt that her followers jokingly concluded belonged to Mariga.
“Just see my life. Guess that’s why they call it a boyfriend shirt? No? LOL. Ok. Generally speaking though…it’s fashion,” said Muthengi at the time.
