2. Bien

Just recently Polycarp who is a member of Sauti Sol tied the knot with his long time girlfriend and women have shifted their focus to the tall, dark and handsome Bien.

Bien has the body to die for, a voice that can toa nyoka pangoni and the financial stability to endure that he entertains his woman.

Despite being in a relationship, women are still hopeful that he might change his might and they might hit the jackpot with him


3. Chibu Dangote

I know what you are thinking, that ooh but I thought he is married, mara ooh si he has kids; so what?

Having kids with different baby mama’s does not eliminate him from the eligible bachelors list.

Despite the fact that he recently got engaged bado hawajaoana so to team mafisilets bado kuna chance.


4.  Sean Andrew

Grandson to former President Mwai Kibaki, Sean is among the most eligible bachelors not only in Africa but also in Kenya.


5. Juma Jux

With his melodious tunes, a body worth being on the cover of magazines, who wouldn’t want such a man for a husband.

Its better to get a handsome man and get beautiful babies whom you will happily look at than marry an ‘ugly” guy and end up with the double tragedy of being a single mother to not so appealing kids, after all even ugly guys cheat.

Juma Jux

This is sad: Yemeni mother banned from visiting dying son in United States

6. Harmonize

The ‘Kwangaru’ hit maker is a potential bachelor. To top it all he is still young with a body to die for and with his busy life on the stage, he is yet to walk down the aisle.


7. Savara

He may be in the limelight locally and internationally, but Savara who is a member of Sauti Sol band, has not found the right woman to convince him put a ring on it.

So ladies go ahead and try your luck.
