Rapper Sylvia Ssaru Raises Her Dowry Price To Ksh1.5 Billion

Just weeks after setting her dowry price at Ksh1 billion, rapper Sylvia Ssaru has upped the ante, declaring that her dowry now stands at a staggering Ksh1.5 billion. She has also hinted that the price could even surpass Ksh2 billion in the future.

In a recent interview with Mungai Eve in Eldoret, Ssaru, who was performing at the Love and Vibes concert, explained her reasons for demanding such a high dowry.

“Right now it’s Ksh1.5 billion, and if it’s late 2024, I’ll raise it,” she stated confidently. “To those who say I’ll marry myself, I can afford it. So if someone wants to marry me, they have to be more than me, that is, they should come with more than me.”

Undeterred by criticism, Ssaru boldly asserted her worth, declaring, “If you leave the table away, I am the foundation of the house itself where the table will sit.”

She further addressed the question of what she would bring to the marriage, stating, “My life right now, I don’t need a poor man. I need someone who can also support me with other things. If I date a poor man, it will pull me back. Only a man should strive to reach the price.”

When asked about her contribution to the marriage in exchange for the hefty dowry, Ssaru proclaimed, “I am the foundation of the whole house, so leave the table. I am the finished house. Right now, you are being asked what you bring home, not the table now. I think I bring everything because in this life, I come with love and my own salary. I come with beauty, so if it all doesn’t fit on the table, I don’t know.”

While acknowledging the popularity of music with explicit content among Kenyan fans, Ssaru emphasized that her music production is not driven by a love for such content but rather by the demands of her audience.

Dirty music indeed sells,” she admitted. “Those are the songs that Kenyans like. If you give it to them, you have a show here and there.”

Ssaru’s unapologetic stance and skyrocketing dowry demands have undoubtedly sparked heated debates and divided opinions. Her actions challenge societal norms and raise questions about the role of women in modern Kenyan society.
