Earlier, we saw in a 90 Day Fiancepreview clip how nervous Benjamin was when he was about to make the trip to Kenya. He was teaching a class, and even his students were genuinely concerned for him. But now, he is in Kenya. But before he and Akinyi can be together, they have to get her brother and father’s approval. Not to mention, the expensive bride price he has to pay for having Akinyi’s hand is marriage. And the TLC cameras will be right there to document it all.
Moreover, Akinyi’s culture doesn’t really approve of Ben being a divorced father. Also, Akinyi is slowly beginning to regret being on ’90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’. Let’s take a look.
‘90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Akinyi’s Dad Refused To Meet Benjamin
When Ben went to meet Akinyi’s dad, he refused to see him. At that time, she made it clear that they won’t be able to be together without her family’s blessing. Akinyi waited for her father for hours, but he didn’t show up. She left from there and told Ben that her brother said something that deeply upset her. She also told him that she wants to be alone for some time. Ben told the cameras that he came from across the other end of the world to be with Akinyi, and she wants him to leave her alone.
Moreover, she is not telling Ben what’s going on, and tat’s even more frustrating for him. It hurts him that she doesn’t want to be with him. He said that it’s definitely not okay. But at this point, he doesn’t have much of choice.
‘90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’ Akinyi Is Facing Regrets
Akinyi posted on her Instagram story, “I am slowly regretting this.” Well, if you ship Akinyi and Benjamin, it doesn’t sound good! Fans think both Akinyi and Benjamin are nice. But they might not be suited for one another. On the other hand, the more likely possibility is that Akinyi regrets being on the show. Relationships can be as hard as it is. But having a new relationship portrayed on TV is taking it to a whole new level.
Akinyi blames 90 Day Fiance producers for making her family look bad. She calls her culture beautiful and states that they are very welcoming people. However, she can’t control what they show on TV. She continues to state that they are portraying Ben as an innocent American whom her family is treating badly. Akinyi then proceeds to call out Ben because he didn’t defend her family publically. She has been receiving a lot of hate from fans lately.
Do you think they are still together? Did Akinyi’s family give them their blessing? Even if they did, how will Ben arrange the bride price considering that he has already spent a lot on the trip? Let us know in the comments below. Stay tuned for more 90 Day Fiance updates.
