Event organizer, Wilson Malaba is not new in the showbiz, entertainment industry to be precise. However, he is not well remembered for his career but rather as Esther Arunga’s ex boyfriend.
The two started dating back in 2009 and broke up two months shy of their wedding in 2010. Speaking to the Nairobian last week, he explained his meeting with the controversial former TV siren. “We met through a social forum dubbed CINEMA (Christians in entertainment and media) that brought together Christians in showbiz. This is the forum that chose Joseph Helon as moderator,” he said.
Their love took a turn for the worse when Quincy Timberlake – Esther’s current husband came into their life and started ‘pestering’ Esther. Around the same time, Wilson received a phone call from his church pastor telling him that he was no longer part of the congregation as he was a Freemason.
His ordeal did not end there as one morning Esther ignored his call and later sent him a message accusing him of adultery. This really broke him down as they ended up parting ways two months shy of their wedding. As if thats not all, his business was crippled following the rumours doing rounds.
He recalls that everything went haywire that he gave up on God. “I even gave up on God, because I felt he had abandoned me,” he said.
The lad is however happily married to a former model with whom they tied the knot last year.
