Lulu Hassan Explains Why Her Marriage With Rashid Has Lasted For Several Years

Lulu Hassan and Rashid Abdalla are widely regarded as one of the most esteemed celebrity couples in Kenya, primarily due to their remarkable ability to navigate away from controversies and scandals that have plagued other high-profile marriages. Additionally, their ability to maintain a harmonious relationship despite being constantly in each other’s presence for nearly 24 hours a day, as they both live and work together, has captivated the admiration of many.

For the past five years, starting from July 22, 2018, Rashid and Lulu have been the esteemed news anchors, showcasing their exceptional professionalism and compatibility. During an event held on Tuesday night, October 24, 2023, to launch a new TV series called ‘Zari’, Lulu, who is a mother of three, candidly shared her insights on the secret to a blissful marriage while conversing with vloggers. She emphasized the significance of friendship between couples as the cornerstone of a happy and fulfilling marital union.

“Munapaswa kuwa marafiki kwanza. I think tulicreate ile friendship kabla tuowane. Mimi kwangu Rashid ndio ni mume wangu but mume haiji kwanza, kwanza ni rafiki. I think namchukulia kama rafiki then mume ni baadaye,” she said.

The Swahili news anchor additionally underscored the importance of problem-solving in marriage.

“Kukosana kuko, binadamu mgani hawakosani? Kila mtu wanakosana but mukikosana si lazima muonyeshe kila mtu mumekosana. And there is a way you can solve your problem as well bila dunia nzima kujua,” Lulu Hassan said.

Lulu Hassan reveals the unconventional secret of her long marriage

Well-known Kenyan television personality Lulu Hassan has revealed some details regarding the happy ending to her 15-year marriage to Rashid Abdalla.

In a recent candid interview at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Lulu provided an unusual recipe for marital bliss, arguing that the key to their happiness lies in keeping their arguments in the privacy of their bedroom. This is in stark contrast to the corny stories of love and harmony.

You may want to reconsider your assumption that Lulu Hassan and Rashid Abdalla were your average power couple.
This open discussion exposed an unexpectedly different aspect to their relationship—one that is very different from the flawless public persona they present.

The fascinating tale of how Lulu and Rashid met was revealed by the mother of three children. She clarified that having recently lost her mother, Rashid had first been a friend to her at a difficult moment when she needed someone to lean on.

After growing from a helpful friend to a significant role in her life and eventually becoming a devoted husband, Rashid and she are currently commemorating 15 years of marriage. She said, “Rashid alikuja kama rafiki kwanza,” which means that their bond was formed via companionship and assistance to one another.

“Unajua ile time mumefiliwa you need a shoulder to lean on and stuff hivyo ndio niliona rashid niliona huyu ni kama baba mwenye nilikuwa sina kwa familia. Hivyo ndio kidogo kidogo tu mapenzi ilikuja na sai tukona watoto watatu na 15 years in marriage.

Their handling of disagreement is what makes their marriage so contentious. Lulu disclosed that they never argue in public; when they do, they keep their arguments to themselves in their bedroom and don’t carry them over into the following day.

“Sisi ni marafiki hatukorofishani na kama tutakorofishana tutakorofishana tutafanya ndani ya room na hataiendelea hadi the next day. Hatujai beba makasiriko to the next day.

Their unusual habit of “fighting in bed” is how they manage to have a nice and calm relationship. It’s undoubtedly a contentious strategy that goes against conventional relationship counsel that promotes candid communication during arguments.

Lulu also praised Rashid’s character and his commitment to his career. He was a wonderful friend and a nice husband, according to her. She even spoke positively about a “bad” argument they had once, suggesting that these kinds of arguments weren’t often and didn’t stay with her. She expressed her enthusiasm for Rashid’s attributes by highlighting his workaholic tendencies, wisdom, and affection.

Singer Jovial has not been having it easy for the past few weeks. Well, she’s been dealing with an obsessive fan stalking her every move, and before this could even settle – she’s back to dealing with trolls from Netizens.

The said trolls were a result of a viral video of her performing for birthday boy, Rashid Abdalla, who appeared captivated by her vocals and dancing moves – before wifey, Lulu Hassan stepped in to dance with her man.

Unfortunately this stunt resulted to mixed feelings. There are fans who feel Lulu Hassan may have felt ‘jealous’ watching her man get entertained by another woman, while others feel that they were all having fun. Really nothing serious. 

Jovial emotional

With the many insults and mean comments Jovial who had maintained her silence since the incident decided to respond.

From how she handled the situation proves that she’s yet to grow some thick skin to help ignore what netizens say. Anyway with a lot of emotions, she told off the haters urging them to fix their homes – cause clearly they all had insecurity issues with their husbands.

Well, according to Lulu Hassan, marriage has it’s ups and downs but communication still remains key. Talking about marriage, Lulu has given some advice to young girls who are always looking to get a sponsor; who would basically give them lavish lifestyle in exchange for sex.

On an Insta Q&A, one of her fans asked if it’s ethical to get married to a sponsor. Her response;

”Sponsor Ameoa? If yes… Respect ndoa ya wenyewe utakuja kuzaa pia. You wouldn’t wish your daughter to be treated the same”

People judge our marriage based on how we relate on TV – Lulu Hassan reveals

Gracing the screens may come with a package inclusive of fame and status but so does it tag along a fair share of challenges.

TV beauty queen, Lulu Hassan and her hubby, Rashid Abdalla are one of the most admired and envied TV couple on our local screens and the first to set such kind of a bar.

However, working together comes along with its setbacks.

Citizen TV top Swahili co-anchors, Lulu Hassan and hubby, Rashid Abdalla

Since these two are a couple, fans will more often than not judge them when they are presenting the news.

Up and close with Millard Ayo, Lulu stated that most times, fans and viewers tune into their bulletins, not to get the content, rather to gather information about their marriage.

First off all congratulations for asking that question, no one has ever asked. There are challenges. For instance, most people would watch news with a third eye. Some will watch to find out if we fought at home or we are good.

Some people will watch to find out if we fought at home or we are good – Lulu Hassan reveals

That is no big deal but it poses a challenge when the duo has to respond to every news item accordingly.

When it comes to sad news, there is nothing to laugh or smile about but for viewers, sad faces are a sign that things are not well at home for the two.

This for her, is one of the major challenges the mother of 3 adorable children, faces while working with her better half.

There are times we would be presenting sad news back to back, then you cannot smile. But to fans and viewers, they think we are not happy with each other due to our domestic issue, which is not the case.

“Help me identify the only brave man in the coastal region” Lulu Hassan’s humble plea to Kenyans

When crisis befalls, what majority will do is take off from the scene of danger. Not having in mind, there may be victims stuck in it, who only need a stretched arm, to live another day.

According to Citizen TV siren, Lulu Hassan we don’t need to look far since our very own fits the description of the few who would look back and save a life.

Citizen TV siren, Lulu Hassan

This is in reference to the unfortunate incident that went down at the Likoni ferry channel more than a week ago.


As mother and daughter lay helpless as their Toyota ISIS car gradually sank with very little hope left, one man did the most noble thing so far.

Mariam Kaghenda and her 4-year old daughter who are victims of the unfortunate Likoni ferry accident

Individuals watched the car sinking and Mariam crying out for help. But one man bravely came out and without much ceremony, took immediate action to try and rescue the two.

I want to mention him, not once, not twice, I want to mention him so many times though I don’t know his name. I don’t know his name but I know of his bravery and his golden heart. The man I don’t know his name is the only brave man in the coastal region. This brave man, when everyone else was doing nothing he jumped to the ocean. When Mariam and her baby Amanda were shouting for help he had jumped with a rope, though the bystanders heard the cry for help. The man I don’t know his name was the only one who heeded the cry of Mariam and Baby Amanda.

Without any life-saving gear, without any oxygen tank. Basically lacking any protection from the imminent dangers in the deep ocean waters. The man was determined to save at least a life.

Man who tried to save Mariam Kaghenda and her young daughter, before their car submerged in the deep waters

A man, who has captured the hearts of many including the mother of 3, Lulu Hassan. A guy who might not have received as much recognition as the ‘divers’ have, but it does take courage.

The media personality has come out with one humble plea to the public, to help her identify the man with a big heart.

Celebrated media personality, Lulu Hassan

Because despite fact that he might not have been accorded the deserving recognition, Lulu believes the man is brave and worth celebrating.

Gone too soon

Adding that Mariam probably did want to thank the man for his efforts. But the tides did not allow her to thank him for his big heart and bravery.

Mariam may have seen him before it was dark. She may have seen him and said bye and thanks before the salty waters filed up her lungs. Mariam may have seen this great man before her tears were carried away by the powerful waves and said thanks anyway. She and her baby died a painful death, she died when those concerned of her safety were in deep slumber only to wake up and shed crocodile tears.

Though he did not succeed, the man I don’t know his name, had tried, he had no oxygen cylinder. He had no swimsuits, no speed boat, nothing but a big heart. Almost sacrificing his life to save another. He had tried. I think Mariam never knew his name too, she had seen him try, but said bye and thank you before it was all dark. Share this message until I know. Until we know the name of the only man against all odds who had tried to save Mariam and Amanda. Share, share, share.
