''This is your unit now and you can finish it to your liking,'' Mwale told Wode Maya, to which he responded: ''What do you mean it’s my unit now? Is it for rent or something?''
''No, you own this now. This is a gift to you for coming to Kenya as an in-law from this community,' Mwale answered.

Congratulations to you guys. I wish you a happy married life. I’m a Nigerian married to a beautiful Kenyan lady too. My first visit to Kenya in 2016 was met by a very disappointing welcome by the Kenyan immigration at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport.
I was discriminated against for being a Nigerian ... Maya, I appreciate your great work, and I will be very happy to see you continue to use your media to enlighten Africans not to let boundaries created by colonialism tear us apart. One love.

One thing I admire about this whole union is its simplicity. Yes, they could have chosen to spend their life savings and have a 'million dollar' wedding but yet they had a simple but nice ceremony. May God bless and unite this union for as long as they both shall live. Long live AFRICA. Congratulations WODEMAYA.

I’m so so happy for you two. My babies are married God has and will continually bless you both. I’m Diasporan Afrikan, what can I do to help with your movement of changing the narrative of Afrika and bringing it to the world? Put me to work my son. Your American-born mom is praying for a True Man of God from Afrika as a husband. I’m so happy for the two of you and can’t wait to see them, babies. You both.
