The 90 Day Fiancé star explains to the cameras that since he came halfway around the world to meet Akinyi, he doesn’t see the point in her “drinking to an oblivion.” He then explains that since he’s hoping to get engaged and married to Akinyi, this behavior is not what he wants.
He says to her, “So, about alcohol. Not a good thing, right?” Then says he expects that they will keep it out of their lives. Akinyi doesn’t seem satisfied with this and asks him if he drinks, and he replies, “Occasionally” but “not to a drunken state.” She then reminds him that she doesn’t get drunk often and she feels like he shouldn’t be making a “big deal out of it.” Later, she spoke to the cameras saying that while she does feel bad, she also feels like he’s overreacting and thinks he’s being too controlling, advising him to “chill out.”
It seems that the eight-year age gap and the cultural differences could become an issue in their relationship. It seems that what it means to occasionally drink in Kenya is different than what it means to a pastor from Phoenix.
It seems that since it’s only a matter of paying the bride price to Akinyi’s family before they are man and wife, they’ve got some differences to sort out beforehand.
