While the couple finally got married in the home country of Obala, Kenya, Taylor clashed with the Obala family about her bridal price and cultural differences. Obala’s brother, Fidel, appeared on the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Tell-All part 2 to clear the air and clarify what he really felt about Taylor, the bride price and Taylor’s criticism of drinking his sister.
Akinyi Obala’s brother said Benjamin Taylor was not an “alpha male”
Obala told tell host Shaun Robinson that her brother Fidel had interfered with almost every relationship she had ever had and called him “strict”, just like her father. When asked how Taylor met the family of his Kenyan bride, Fidel replied that the 90 day fiance: before the 90 day star was “average.”
Obala agreed and added that her new husband was “timid” and that he had no “alpha-male appearance.” While 90-day fiancee castmate Rebecca Zied said that cultural differences may have influenced Taylor’s confidence, Obala disagreed. “You have to look like you know what you’re doing,” she insisted, “and for the most part you didn’t.”

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. #90dayfiance #benjaminandakinyi #90dayfiancebeforethe90days #90dayfiancepillowtalk #love #longdistancerelationship #🇺🇸 #🇰🇪 #tlc
Obala’s family supported Taylor’s pushback against his wife’s drinking
Taylor caught a certain amount of controversy when he criticized Obala for drinking a single margarita (and a bit too tipsy) in a recent episode of 90 Day Fiancé. The divorced father cited his religious beliefs as the reason for his discomfort.
Obala’s brother Fidel, however, surprisingly agreed with Taylor’s controversial behavior. “That’s the man I want,” he said, approving Taylor’s criticism of his sister. He added that Taylor should be the “man of the house.”
Tell-All host Shaun Robinson shared that despite his objections, Taylor drank himself while he was in Kenya with Fidel one evening. Taylor pushed back against allegations of hypocrisy and said he was only angry at Obala because he drank what he considered to be exaggerated.
Fidel simply defended himself and said: “We were trying to get a bond with Benjamin. I did that to see how he reacted to the drinks. He passed my exams. “
Akinyi’s brother shared that the bride price was not yet paid
One of the biggest controversies and doubts about the marriage of Akinyi and Benjamin on 90 Day Fiancé: before the 90 days was the wedding price. Although Taylor at that time did not have enough to satisfy the Obala family, he agreed to pay more at a later date.
Regarding the bridal price, Fidel said to Robinson, “Benjamin owes me.” And when Robinson asked how much Taylor owed, he vaguely answered, “Something he can save.”
Obala explained that the bridal prize is not only meant to honor the bride, but also to express your gratitude for her. She shared: “It is meant to say:” Thank you for raising this child to a certain point. “”
She added that if someone who is highly educated would normally expect her family to pay a higher price: going to Africa at school is very expensive, so someone who goes to school at university level is high for the bridal price, “Obala said.
