Kenyan socialite Amber Ray is officially off the market as businessman Kennedy Rapudo has finally put a ring on it.
In a video shared by Amber Ray on Instagram, the proposal took place at a beachfront and had a simple yet elegant presentation.
There was a red carpet and lit lamps and candles on the sides leading to an intimate set up where Rapudo could be seen going down on one knee and talking to her fiancée, seemingly asking her to be his wife.
Dazzled in a red dress, Amber Ray looked surprised by Rapudo’s gesture before agreeing to marry the businessman.
The couple is currently in Dubai and has been out of the country celebrating Amber’s birthday, who turned 31 a few days ago.
In October, the couple sparked engagement rumours after a video posted by Amber’s sister Ellah on Instagram went viral.
The video showed Amber, beautifully dressed in a long multi-patterned African attire, walking up to her lover, businessman Kennedy Rapudo, and offering him a beverage amid a group of people.
Amber’s sister had captioned the video, “Congratulations Amber Ray and Kennedy Rapudo. May God bless your union. I gained a brother today” – a statement which led many to believe that the couple was engaged.
Following the speculation and numerous congratulatory messages from fans, Amber Ray clarified that it wasn’t an engagement. Taking to Instagram, the socialite posted a photo kissing Rapudo and explained that the event was an introduction saying it was “a huge step for us.”
“Thank you all for the warm messages but, as usual….bloggers wamewatupanisha. It wasn’t an engagement but an introduction (for parents to know that we are dating) which is a huge step for us,” said Amber Ray.
She further asked her followers not to put pressure on them to get married as they still want to savour the joy of this stage of their relationship.
“Ebu muwache kutuharakishia. We are just taking a day at a time and honestly I’m enjoying every bit of it @kennedyrapudo I’m so happy I’m going through this journey with you,” she said.
