Akinyi’s family put Benjamin to the test as he was clearly a fish out of water and a ball of nerves. His love for Akinyi was apparent enough that he won the approval of her family to marry her.

They had a wedding ceremony in Kenya and Benjamin returned home to work on getting her a visa.

They appeared on 90 Day Fiance: Self-Quarantined where they were still separated and dealing with the coronavirus pandemic apart.

Akinyi was finally able to join her husband in America and they have started a YouTube channel where their fans can follow what comes next for the cute couple.
