A woman named Akinyi Obala has raised the bar high after participating in an international TV series dubbed 90 Day Fiancé.

The show, which airs on TLC, follows couples from different countries dating or married to US citizens.

In this case, fiancés have 90 days to decide to marry each other before the visas of the foreign half of the couple expire.

Benjamin, a 33-year-old divorced father of one, travelled to Akinyi’s small village in Kenya to meet her family and ask for her hand in marriage.

He approached his fiancé's brother to help him with the dowry negotiations but shockingly, he did not have enough money to cater for Akinyi's bride price.

The duo met through an international dating app and to be certain she was not a hoax, he asked her to do the Vulcan salute.

The American revealed that immediately after he saw Akinyi, he fell in love.

Their only hurdle was overcoming the language barrier, culture shock and sceptical friends and family.
