How did Grace Ekirapa and Pascal Tokodi meet?
Grace and Pascal met at a Java coffee shop in Nairobi.
“On a certain fourth, you walked in a certain Java. It was my first time seeing you in person and I remember staring at you as you looked for a place to sit
“You should have seen how wide my smile was when you chose the seat next to me,” Pascal said in a message to Grace.
Pascal was smitten by Grace’s beauty and was left speechless when she sat next to him and ordered pancakes while working on her laptop.
“You ordered Pancakes, pulled out your laptop and started working, I on the other hand sat there looking at you wondering how I was going to make the first move, for a guy who usually has a lot to say
“I was speechless that day, you must have noticed cause you looked up and smiled at me, I smiled back and that was the beginning of everything for me,” Pascal adds.
They hit it off and started dating, eventually getting married in a secret wedding in 2020.
Split from Pascal Tokodi
Recent reports have indicated that the couple might have separated.
According to a report on Gotta News, the two have been struggling financially and they have been struggling to maintain their lavish lifestyle.
It is reported that the couple has been trying to hild it together despite the tough economic times but the breaking point came in November 2023.
“Pascal and Grace haven’t been living together for two months now. They parted ways last November, Pascal moved back to Karen where he had been living before they met, and Grace remained in Limuru where they had been living together,” an anonymous source said.
The source asserted that the split was due to financial constraints;
“Ever since he married Grace, she has always had an issue with Pascal’s friends. I was one of the friends who cut links with them; we just started talking the other day, and a majority of people he used to associate with as well. She even didn’t want him to do the King Kaka collabo, arguing that they were exploiting him
“Pascal and I are super close, and what he said to me is he preferred to buy a cheaper whip, preferably a Demio to begin life with, but Grace advised they get a much bigger machine. That’s how Pascal took a loan and purchased the Mazda CX-5 at Sh1.9 million that you might have seen him cruise around with. He is still servicing the car loan.”
