Wanja Eleanor Wohoro is a lady crowned with many titles as she is popularly known to be a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and freelance writer.

In a previous interview, she opened up on how they met and further explained the nature of their relationship. At that time, the two were in a long-distance relationship and she spoke highly of Peter describing him as a supportive partner.

“We met at a New Year’s event in 2015. It’s super long distance, but he’s always the person I send ideas and songs to because he’s also musical. Obviously he’s biased but also critical enough to give me pointers. He’s excited for things I do and very supportive.” she said

Wohoro who permanently relocated to Kenya 3 years ago was born in Australia [Her dad is Kenyan and Mum is Australian] and moved to Kenya when she was four before going back to Australia at 13 for her high school and university studies.

Although she admits that the wedding did not go quite as it was originally planned, Wohoro says her big day turned out even more perfect and intimate.

“Not the wedding we planned originally, but ultimately even more perfect and intimate than we could have ever imagined. So many thanks to @zereniti_house for hosting us SO wonderfully.” she wrote in her post

“Yup, he is off the market, folks! Sharing a moment of joy in my family’s life when my sweet, gentle, loving baby brother @juniornyongo made his declaration of love to his new bride @wanjawohoro this week. I still cannot believe I was not physically present, but thank God for technology! Welcome to the family, Wanja!” she wrote
