Popular Rwandan singer, Benjamin Mugisha known as The Ben is hitched. Word from Kigali is that The Ben and his fiancée Pamela Uwicyeza on Wednesday, got married during a civil wedding ceremony.
The civil wedding comes months after Pamela, a former Miss Rwanda contestant, said ‘YES’ to the ‘WHY’ hit maker in a colorful proposal that took place in October last year, in Maldives Islands, where the two had been spending holidays together.
US-based musician Meddy, was among a host of celebrities who were in attendance to witness the couple confessing their love before family, friends and the law.
According to The New Times, everyone who attended the civil wedding had their phones collected before entering the sector’s hall that hosted the couple’s civil wedding to avoid any pictures as they wanted to make the ceremony a private matter.
However, the two were filmed holding each other’s hands outside the sector’s headquarters even before the ceremony took place.
Pictures, apparently taken with a phone by an unidentified person, later emerged in the media and on social media with the duo walking firmly together in the sector’s compound after swearing in before the law as husband and wife.
The Ben has a huge collection of songs but among the most popular in Uganda are “Why” featuring Diamond Platnumz and This is Love, Featuring Rema
