90 Day Fiancé Star Akinyi Shouts Out Support To Desperate South Africans
Akinyi Obala and Benjamin Taylor didn’t look like a likely couple in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 3. However, these days they seem to have worked out and fans across the world seem happy for them. As Ben set off in a deliberate search of her in Kenya, fans never expected that things would pan out so well. Now, her South African fans love her even more as she gave them a shoutout. If you don’t know, a large swath of the country undergoes extreme unrest at the moment.
90 Day Fiancé Star Akinyi Obala In The USA
Many TLC fans assume that South Africa is close to Kenya. However, as a direct crow would fly, it lies about 2,217 miles away. At the moment, Ben and Akinyi explore the Swahili language together in the USA. He tries to understand more about her culture. Well, that’s a lot more than most South Africans would do, as Kenya has a different main language. Plus, their culture differs in many ways. Still, Africans bond, no matter what country they come from.
While a lot of fans complain that the storylines in 90 Day Fiancé are fake, it seems that Akinyi and Ben really work out. With less drama than South African Ronald Smith and Tiffany, they gather admirers rather than critics these days. Angela Deem and Michael Ilesnami from Nigeria bring loads of drama too. However, Ben and Akinyi just seem like every nice people, fans agree. So, possibly they shouldn’t be surprised that they think of their fans who go through a tough time in South Africa right now.
Why Is The 90 Day Fiancé Star Worrying About South Africa?
You might not know that a former president of the country, Jacob Zuma was recently jailed for 15 months for contempt of court. Popular among the Zulu community in KwaZulu Natal, his supporters started an uprising in protest. It soon spread to burning and looting. In fact, because of the effects of unemployment from lockdowns, poverty is on the rise. So, hungry people and opportunist criminals joined in.
Unfortunately, the army and police can’t cope. Terrified people of all races fear for their lives as warehouses, shops, harbors, homes, and more are laid waste. Actually, there’s plenty of footage under the #KZNViolence hashtag on Twitter.
90 Day Fiancé star Akinyi talked about people who undergo a difficult time. In her clip, she told them that’s she’s “there for [them].”
