“I was so grateful that instead of being called fiancée, I would be called a wife. to me, that was so important…it brought so much joy in my heart. I was looking at my answered prayer.”
When renowned gospel artist Rufftone born ‘William Smith Mwatia’, wed his long-term girlfriend, gospel musician, Krystal born ‘Susan Mwaura Njoki’ their fans finally breathed a sigh, as they had followed this lovebird’s affair for years.
They walked down the aisle among family and friends at the Kenya assemblies of god church, buruburu, on the Saturday of July 26, 2014 dead sure that it was a confirmation from god that they were meant to be. For Krystal, it was a little girl’s dream coming to fruition. a moment to be overjoyed.
“I was so grateful that instead of being called fiancée, I would be called a wife. To me, that was so important” she says adding that, “it brought so much joy in my heart. I was looking at my answered prayer.” for Rufftone, the moment dawned for him when slipping the ring into Krystal’s delicate fingers.
He describes it as a moment that resurrected his sense of responsibility: “I felt something going through my body, and I pray that I’ll be the man she wants me to be.” and the kiss? We are curious to know how it was: “when I kissed her, I lost five years…I became five years younger,” admits Rufftone. And Krystal is beside herself with giggles.
Rufftone chose to go all white just like his bride, while their bridal party adorned fuchsia colored gowns and the groomsmen decked grey suits with white shirts and fuchsia ties.
Krystal and Rufftone met at a music-recording studio, where Krystal all green and naïve in the music business had gone to seek for a producer who could record her music. Rufftone had just released his hit single then, mwikulu, upping him into celebrity status overnight, but Krystal did not even recognize him! Her beauty, patience and understanding spirit on the other hand blew Rufftone away once he got to know her.
It was selfies photo moment for the bride!
