Amber Ray's Career

Amber Ray’s rise might not be as straightforward but boy has she managed to create a stable career. We all know her now for her dolled up looks, posh cars, lavish houses and hanging out with the who’s who of town. 

But before all the fame, Amber Ray worked casual jobs. In a Q&A session on her Instagram page, she revealed that she sold matumbo, milk, worked as a waitress and was head of customer care at eCitizen. She also lived in a single room with his then eight-month-old son Gavin. 

Although she says she hustled her way to the top, many question the type of jobs she's done that funds her lavish lifestyle. A couple of Amber Ray before photos circulated online after she shared them on Instagram and the difference is obvious.

Amber Ray's Relationships

Amber Ray’s love life is akin to a revolving door. She has no problems going in and getting out of relationships. Unfortunately, she is yet to find her happily ever after. Here are some of the men that Amber Ray has dated. 

Zaheer Jhanda and Amber Ray

Only Amber Ray knows why Amber Ray does what she does. Whilst being a second wife is not something that most women would necessarily settle for, Amber Ray didn’t seem to mind this when she got married to a controversial businessman and politician Zaheer Jhanda. 

Amber Ray was highly criticised for this move not only by the public but by Zaheer’s wife as well. Aaliyah Zaheer, Jaheer’s wife accused the socialite of using “juju” black magic, to get Zaheer under her spell. 

Zaheer and Amber Ray were married for a period of two years before they went their separate ways in 2018. Amber Ray stated that she felt “heavenly” after her divorce from Zaheer.

Amber Ray and Jamal

Celebrities trying to hide their relationships is a trick they are yet to perfect. There is always someone whose going to leak the info. Just like Jamal found out back when he was Amber Ray’s husband. The two were spotted together but denied claims they were dating only for Jamal to later reveal that they were dating. 

Amber Ray and Jamal are no longer husband and wife after they divorced in 2021. The socialite was Jamal’s second wife. They lived together in their Syokimau home before Amber decided to move out due to a confrontation with Jamal’s first wife Amira.

The two were long time friends before they ignited their relationship. Amber Ray even advertised some of Jamal’s brands. 

Businessman and promoter Syd was Amber Ray’s boyfriend after she broke up with Zaheer Jhanda in 2018. Despite displaying their romance on social media, the two had a short-lived relationship as they broke up after only two months. 

Amber Ray’s Son

Although Amber Ray’s baby daddy remains unknown, everyone knows about his son, Gavin. She posts him on her Instagram page on their adventures. He also has his own Instagram page - @GavinClassic - with a following of over 80,000. 

Amber Ray's Family

Not much is known about Amber Ray’s family, her parents and siblings. The one thing that she’s shared about her family is in relation to her father. The socialite revealed that he almost kicked her out from home after she broke up with her boyfriend just as he was preparing to pay dowry. She revealed this during a Q&A session with her fans on Instagram.

Amber Ray's Controversy

Amber Ray is synonymous with controversy and she thrives in it. Whether it's her relationships, dressing or feuding with others, best believe, Amber Ray does not keep anything, or most things under wraps. Here are some of her dramas.

Second wife problems

After her first experience of being a second wife to businessman and politician Zaheer Jhanda, Amber Ray vowed never to play second fiddle again. But, she tripped on her own words. She went ahead and became the number two to Jamal Roho Safi. Both times, she was embroiled in constant drama with the first wives.

Aaliyah Zaheer, Zaheer Jhanda’s wife and Amira, Jamal’s wife, accused Amber Ray of using witchcraft to keep both under her spell. Aaliyah exposed her through a popular Facebook page, Kilimani mums Nairobi. Amber Ray was compelled to share a marriage certificate to confirm that she indeed married Zaheer.

As for her marriage to Jamal, her fights with Amira are well publicised. Whilst Jamal wanted both of his wives to live under one roof, both of them could not see eye to eye. Amira and Amber Ray’s antics culminated in a fight at their Syokimau home which later forced the socialite to move out. Amber Ray cited insecurity as her reason for leaving. After all the drama, Amber Ray and Jamal split and Amira can now have Jamal to herself. 

Amber Ray: “It’s my body”

Amber Ray has been called so many things by her critics. One of them is a prostitute. Well, in another one of her Q&A sessions on Instagram, one fan asked Amber Ray why she chose to sell her body for money. The mum of one gave a sarcastic response. 

“Ni yangu, ni safi, ni tamu, haija complain, wateja ni wengi, haiishi, haichagui.” which translates to “it’s mine, it’s clean, it’s tasty, it hasn’t complained, clients are in plenty, it’s not worn out, it doesn’t discriminate.”

No money, no love

Amber Ray doesn’t have the time nor kind words for broke men. She only flows with those who are loaded and enjoys the finest things in life. She made this clear on social media that she cannot date a man with an empty pocket.

A social media user claimed to have feelings for her despite him being broke to which Amber Ray responded: “Love without money tastes like mwarubaini.” Amber Ray’s past relationships demonstrate these words. She’s been involved with moneyed men - Jamal Roho Safi, Promoter Syd, Zaheer Jhanda.

Whether you think she’s got high standards or she’s being materialistic, the message is in. 

“Not your role model”

Celebrities are expected to act or appear saintly because of their influence on the wider population. However, Amber Ray challenged these expectations by telling her fans that she is their role model and they shouldn’t look up to her. Instead, they should be role models for their children.

This was after a local radio presenter told his listeners to stop looking at celebrities as role models. Amber Ray quickly voiced her support for the message much to the disappointment of her fans. They claimed that she was attacking them when they made her famous. 

Never used witchcraft

Amber Ray has had to address accusations that she uses witchcraft to pin men down. The first wives of her ex-husbands, Zaheer Jhanda and Jamal, said that Amber Ray bewitched and stole their men. This after a photo surfaces online of her with two chickens, a black and white one, which left people wondering what she was up to. The socialite denied the rumours by saying that she’d share her part of the story soon.

Jamal has since come out and denied that he was bewitched. He says that he chose Amber Ray consciously.

Amber Ray does not hold back when it comes to flaunting her wealth. As for cars, she’s got them. So what machine does she move in? Amber Ray cars include a Toyota TX, a Jeep and has also been spotted with a Land Cruiser and a Range Rover.
