Chiki Kuruka, the wife of Sauti Sol singer Bien, has dismissed claims she is behind Michelle Ntalami's breakup allegedly with Makena Njeri. 

Michelle had blamed the publicised break-up on affairs by her unnamed partner believed to be Makena.

A social media user @esseyapple had asked, "But why did you break up Michelle and Makena?"

Chiki said she has never dated a woman despite being a great supporter of the LGBTQ community.

She tagged Ntalami, saying the Marini Naturals CEO never mentioned her name when she said Makena had cheated on her with a married woman.

"@esseyapple, I would normally ignore this. But I guess I have time right now," she said.

"Let's do this, let's tag the people you are chatting about because as far as I'm aware, @michelle.ntalami has never mentioned my name in her messages. I have never had a relationship with either a non-binary person or a woman."

She added that she has always had nothing but respect for Michelle.

"If you are so concerned, I have tagged Michelle, don't speculate, ask her your damn self if she was referring to me. Then leave my page."

Michelle herself also spoke about the allegations and said neither the people 'them' cheated on with was Chiki.

"Hey, @esseyapple, I want to be very clear and clear Chiki’s name from the two persons I alluded to in my open letter. Neither of them is her," she said.

"Additionally, the hurt caused has less to do with who the two people are, and more to do with ‘them’ and I. Ultimately, the decision to be faithful will always boil back down to the two people in the relationship.

"That said, keep shining your light @chikikuruka! As a fellow ally, I see and love what you are doing for the company and community! I will always be there in truth and in spirit."
