Musyoki, half his wife's age, said he received mixed reactions after travelling to Mwingi to introduce Deborah to his family.
"Some people were saying she is my sponsor, utatoa mtoto wapi na hawezi zaa...all kinds of stuff," he recalled.
"Initially, my mother was not for the idea, but later she accepted Deborah."
