90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member Akinyi Obala (new wife of Benjamin Taylor) has been in the hot seat recently over some of her antics. Between some of the things she says in the show and some of her antics online, some fans doubt her authenticity. Especially when it comes to Benjamin Taylor. Is the Kenyan 90 Day Fiance using Benjamin and the TLC exposure to further her own agenda? What’s the scoop?
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Fans Question Akinyi Obala Online
To some followers, what they see of Akinyi Obala on the show is different from how she acts online. Some viewers say she’s much more conservative on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days than she is on Instagram. So much so that some wonder if Benjamin Taylor’s new wife has “two sides”. An IG user called how she acts online “less reserved, less innocent” and “less conservative”.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days celeb Akinyi Obala wasted no time skating past this assumption. She said it was “very interesting”. And, Benjamin Taylor’s wife said she wasn’t aware she has “two sides”. She added that she’s reserved but also “bubbly” “in-person”. Akinyi Obala doesn’t get as much hate online as some fellow cast members. But, it seems some doubt whether or not she’s genuine.
90 Day Fiance: Is Akinyi Taking Advantage of Benjamin Taylor?
Some 90 Day Fiance fans feel Akinyi Obala is using Benjamin Taylor and TLC to further her own plans. The majority of her updates focus on her. And, there’s very little about Benjamin on her page. She’s very into fashion. And, some question whether she is using the network exposure to move those aspirations along. Even though she doesn’t get as much hate as some of her fellow stars, there’s certainly some doubt when it comes to her motives.
Some of this behavior came to the surface in a recent episode of 90 Day Fiance. Akinyi Obala said Benjamin Taylor made a “mistake” while negotiating the bride price with her father. And, she even joked that he could end up paying money to her family for the “rest of his life”.
Meanwhile, a fellow Kenyan said there is no marriage in the African country until the matter of money is settled and paid. There’s also the fact that Benjamin Taylor applied for a K1 visa for Akinyi Obala. If their marriage is legitimate and recognized in the United States, he likely would have applied for a spousal visa instead.
What Happens Now?
With the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days season wrapping up, it will be interesting to see what happens with this couple. There’s still no definitive answer regarding whether or not the amount of money was settled upon. So, whether or not Benjamin Taylor continues to pay will be something to keep an eye on moving forward.
And, if and when Akinyi Obala comes to America with Benjamin Taylor, what she does next will be worth keeping an eye on as well. As of right now, the chatter about Akinyi’s intentions is speculation. But, more than a few 90 Day Fiance viewers think there could be some truth to the claims. Be sure to watch the season finale of Before the 90 Days, Sunday night on TLC.
