I will marry Dillish - Stephen
Businessman Stephen Gaeseb says he and Big Brother Africa 2013 winner Dillish Mathews “will be married one day”.
His comments follow him recently posting a picture of Dillish on Instagram with the words “Second finger from the left” and an image of ring next to it.
The couple broke up on the eve of Valentine’s Day this year. At the time Gaeseb dismissed rumours that it was because he had impregnated another woman. He had granted Namibian Sun an exclusive interview at the time.
The couple had been together for several years.
During the show Dillish had remained faithful to her man and bragged about their relationship on live TV.
Gaeseb welcomed her with a tiara when she was announced as Big Brother winner and speculation was rife that they would tie the knot.
Yesterday Gaeseb was cryptic about the break-up, claiming that in a sense they had never parted ways.
“It’s deeper then what meets the eye. I am a different type of person... deeper than the usual mind. The way I do things is different. We all have our lives and you don’t expose the way you live,” he told Namibian Sun yesterday when contacted about his Instagram post, for which he received congratulatory messages from members of the public.
Calls to Dillish’s cellphone went unanswered yesterday and she did not respond to SMSes sent by Namibian Sun either.
Asked if the image of the ring on Instagram meant that he had given Dillish a ring, Gaeseb said: “It basically means she will be my wife. There is no ring or something. We both knew that we will get married one day.”
He explained his post just confirmed that they will get married.
“It might be tomorrow, in five months, in eight months or year, you never know,” he said.
Asked if they were together again, Gaeseb replied: “Ya, we have been together and we never parted. I know you confused, but I am telling you we have never parted.”
He further said the wedding will happen in due time.
“That’s kind confidential,” he added.
Gaeseb claimed further that the decision to get married had been taken a long time ago.
He also claimed that if one reads Dillish’s previous social network postings, she had said she would like to get married after five years.
In February Gaeseb opened up to Namibian Sun about the couple’s break-up, revealing they had already split in December last year after arguing about his flirtatious SMSes he sent to Nigerian woman.
Gaeseb also denied rumours that he had impregnated another woman and that this was the reason they had broken up.
At the time, he said if anyone could produce evidence that he made another woman pregnant, he would pay that person N$ 100 000.
He added that if a woman came forward and proved she was pregnant with his child, she would get N$150 000.
Dillish has been linked to romantic liaisons by the media since her break-up with Gaeseb, including reports that she had dated Nigerian musician Flavour. She had also starred in one of his music videos and reportedly went out on several dates with him.
She has also been seen out and about on the country’s social scene.
