Kevin Mboya has said he ate the chocolates he had bought his girlfriend after he travelled from Nairobi to Kwale to surprise her on her birthday.
Speaking during an interview with Milele FM on Monday, Mboya said other than the flowers he had posted on social media, he had also bought her chocolates which he ate after being stood up.
“I ate it while waiting for her because I became hungry,” he said.
Mboya held the flowers he had bought his girlfriend during the interview.
Last week on Wednesday, Mboya announced that he had travelled from Nairobi to Kwale to surprise his girlfriend with flowers on her birthday without informing her he was coming.
“I have travelled from Nairobi to Kwale to come and surprise my girlfriend on her birthday. I haven’t texted or called her in the last 24hrs, she maybe thinks I forgot it’s her birthday. I am waiting for her just outside her office to surprise her. I hope it goes well,” he tweeted then.
The visit, unfortunately, went awry as his girlfriend failed to come out from her office to meet Mboya who had been waiting at the reception.
He waited for his girlfriend from 4 pm till the office was closed and never set his eyes on her.
According to Mboya, he tried reaching out to his girlfriend through the phone while waiting but was unsuccessful.
Mboya took to Twitter to appreciate all who had encouraged him, noting that such an experience can be bruising to the male ego.
“Thank you to everyone who has come out to encourage me to speak out about what happened in Kwale. In an African setup, it’s not easy for men to come out and speak about these things because of the male ego and also because you will be judged and called names to shame you,” he said then.
Mboya who become the talk of social media after his failed surprise visit to his girlfriend is a Digital Media Consultant, Marketer and social media manager.
