Kenyan musician Bahati found himself in an unexpected situation when his wife, Diana, presented him with a repackaged iPhone 15 Pro Max.
What was meant to be a joyous occasion turned sour for Bahati, who claimed that the phone was initially a gift he had given Diana during their seventh anniversary.
Expressing his dissatisfaction on Instagram, Bahati stated that the re-gifted iPhone was a letdown and compared it unfavourably to receiving men’s socks. He felt embarrassed and emphasised that it didn’t meet his expectations despite being the latest model in the iPhone series.
“If you didn’t want to give me a gift, you could have told me… Did you have to repackage the iPhone 15 I gave you and surprise me with it? Do you expect me to say thank you? Step up your game, Diana!” Bahati retorted.
Diana shared her side of the story in a video on her YouTube channel, explaining her plan to express gratitude for the seven gifts Bahati had given her during their seventh year together. However, Bahati felt that Diana used the occasion to treat herself rather than genuinely gift him.
“My wife has gifted herself, telling me it’s my gift,” Bahati complained.
Diana unveiled the next gift as the video continued: the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Unfortunately, the gesture fell flat, as Bahati expressed disappointment and embarrassment upon receiving what he considered the ‘old’ iPhone. He revealed that Diana had repackaged the phone he initially gifted her on their anniversary.
Bahati, unimpressed, equated the act to the uninspired gift of socks and emphasized his dissatisfaction, saying, “This is worse than being bought socks and a wallet.”
