5 Facts You Need to Know about Kenya Duke
1. Kenya’s wedding was a disaster
Well, now it’s just a funny story to say, but back then, Kenya and Grey suffered from a worst possible marriage day. Duke was half an hour late and that is why the preacher left, resulting in a fight on the marriage day. And there is much more to tell. Baker dropped the wedding cake and a pimp was seen beating up a hooker across the street. It was a totally messed up wedding.
2. They had no cellphones
Now, I am not talking some 1950s story at all. But the fact is, in the early 2000s, when Grey and Kenya first met each other, they had no cellphones. They had to make their conversation through landline, as both of them didn’t own a cell phone. But now, for sure, they can afford the latest Apple phones.

Jessie Bailey is a graduate of Talawanda High School. That is the place where Owen received his basic education. Owen and Kenya are now sending him to Capital University for four years. “His story is nothing short of AMAZING.

5. They have been together now for more than 15 years
Well, being with someone for 15 long years is like giving most part of your life to them. Owen and Kenya, married since 2003, had been together even before that.

Unlike other celebrity couples, the two love to live a private life, which has been a plus point for their relationship.
