Today’s big question is; how will you be spending your Valentine’s Day?

While a majority of Kenyans will be spending the day at work, the festivities will begin in the evening for those who are keen on Valentine, where they perhaps spend time with their significant others.

It will be an evening when men will be expected to buy flowers, chocolates, gifts and take their partners out for dinner.

It will also be an evening when some single young men might be carried away by the day’s mood and choose to get down on bended knees to propose to their girlfriends.

CELEBRITIES

As Kenyans spend the day with loved ones, their favourite celebrities in the music industry will be spending their day in various ways as Nation found out.

While some of these local celebrities are die-hard romantics, we also found some interesting attitudes about Valentine’s Day.

Polycarp Otieno, a guitarist and music producer with popular boy-band Sauti Sol, says he will ensure that his girlfriend will not get out of bed today as he will cook for her every single meal of the day. 

“She is creative like me so she does not have to go to work today,” Polycarp said.

According to the musician, Valentine’s Day does not mean much to him because it is only a one-day affair.

He urges couples to make efforts every day to express love and care for each other without necessarily waiting for Valentine’s Day.

“The kind of love you give to your partner should be constant. Don’t give them love today and be selfish the next day. Relationships are about consistency,” he said.
