Hiphop musician Juliani name has prominently featured in the trending news of the separation of Machakos governor Alfred Mutua and his wife Lilian Ng’ang’a. The couple took to social media on Sunday 15th August, to announce the end of their relationship.
On Instagram, Lilian posted: “Winds of change blew my way and two months ago, I decided to end my long term relationship with Dr Alfred Mutua. We had a good run and I am forever grateful to God he brought us together. We remain friends.”
On his part, Governor Mutua who is a 2022 presidential hopeful wrote: “Lilian and I have been a blessing to each other. Two months ago, we decided to slowly disengage. We are in amicable terms and remain very close friends. We will continue to talk, meet and share ideas constantly.”
Why Juliani is trending
The gospel artiste has found himself in a rather awkward scenario with allegations being rife that he has been a close person to Lilian Ng’ang’a. Netizens who are proclaimed themselves ‘Twitter DCI’ subjected Juliani’s past photos and social media posts to the scrutiny of a microscope.
First was an undated photo in which Juliani took alongside Ng’ang’a that took social media by storm. The photo seems to have been taken in a resort with the duo captured in all smiles.
And while the dust seemed to settle, the gossip was aggravated when a video surfaced online, this time in a birthday party in which both Juliani and Lilian were attendees. The duo had been invited to former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga’s birthday.
With the revelations, online in-laws now suspect that Juliani could be the reason behind Mutua parting ways with Lilian, whom he had married barely 10 years ago after divorcing his first wife.
Juliani Finally Confirms relationship with Lilian
In an interview on SDE, the gospel artist confirmed he had been dating the former Machakos First lady since June this year. He told SDE’s Charles Otieno that he did not ‘sleep in class’ when he was being taught and that’s how he managed to woo Lilian.
“Lilian, I met her in early June or mid-June this year. As a man I did not sleep in class, I haven’t seen many women like that she has clarity of mind, clarity of purpose, the kind of things she values, and the self-respect she has for herself,” Juliani told the publication.

The ‘utawala’ hitmaker is a father of one and in a past interview with Betty Kyallo, revealed that he was in a relationship with actress Brenda Wairimu before they parted. The couple were blessed with a daughter named Amor.
Juliani said he finds time to check on the daughter, adding that Wairimu has been helpful in raising up their daughter.
