Michelle Ntalami and singer Fena Gitu have a long storied past, and as Fena celebrated her 30th birthday this weekend, it seems Ntalami was keen to ensure Fena knew she was very special.
Fena celebrated the dirty thirties, and marked the special day with a live-stream, performing for fans some of her favorite track. But aside from the note-worthy show, Fena also received love from various friends and family.
A queen in the local music industry, Fena has friends who were keen to make the day special despite it being a birthday spent in quarantine. Among the remarkable messages Fena received was that from close friend Michelle Ntalami.
The Marini Naturals founder went to Instagram to share a sweet message, anyone would be happy to receive. She wrote, “Fena, you are love, laughter, brilliance, kindness and an entire adventure, all rolled into one! And I will always be the same for you!.”
Ntalami went on to recall some of the difficult times of their friendship stating,” We’ve been through the dirty trenches together, and right back up the sunny blue skies! And this is how it will forever be! Life’s storms may come and go, but they will always leave me right here, holding your hand and having your back.”
Describing the ‘Karibia’ singer Ntalami pointed out Fena to be “A superstar to many, but a soul to a special few. A real G, but the biggest mush ball at heart. Humble, but still knows she’s the shit. Quiet, but funny AF, especially when it’s inappropriate.
“Chill, but so much fun to be around! An introvert, but comes alive when she feels most at home. Stays drama free, but will still cut a bitch. Shy, but never with her love. Silent, but stays scheming and winning. ”
She went on to add a clever quip about the sweet friendship, “And finally…can be extremely indecisive, but at least she got me being in her life right!”
Responding to the sweet birthday message, Fena wrote “…i love this so much and i love you too. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! Through it all, we ride ❤️ I’ve had an incredible birthday, next year we’ll have to double up. Love you always!”
The twosome were previously the subject of social media chatter but have since laid low, keeping the status of their friendship to themselves.
Whatever their relationship, it’s clear to see the two have a very special friendship.
