When Tay and Chan Kabs first laid eyes on each other on a bus, it was love at first sight. They were 12 and she joked in a YouTube video that she was creeped out at first by how he stared at her.
He managed to track down her phone number and gave her a call. The relationship just blossomed from there.
The couple has been together since 2003 and credits their strength and deep love for their longevity.
“We laugh a lot. Every day.”
Sharing their culture with their children is important to them. Chan’s family is from the Congo and Tay’s loved ones are from Ghana. They speak their language with their kids to help keep their familial history alive.
In a YouTube video, Chan shared that she named their daughter Taija after her hubby Tay and God. Meliya was named after former President Barack Obama’s daughter. They also have a little boy named TJ
The London couple first became famous for their glimpses of life on Snapchat. People asked them for more videos and their YouTube channel was born.
“It was nice to get that kind of feedback, that people were enjoying our day-to-day stories of family life.”
The 29-year-old couple decided it was important to show others that their generation can indeed have meaningful relationships and solid families.
“Some say young people don’t stay together. We’ve been together since 2003, which is shocking to some.”
One of the Kab family’s videos, “2-year-old takes over dad’s music again,” was shared in 2019 and hit five million views in one month.
Another video has gone viral and people can’t stop cracking up over it. It’s hard to catch every single lyric in a song.
Sometimes you find yourself making up the words just to sing along, only to find out you’ve been singing the wrong words all along.
Tay shares in the video how incredibly confident his daughter Maliya belts out “Candy Girl” by New Edition. She is really giving this song her all, complete with exuberant moves and loud vocals.
But Tay is utterly exasperated at his darling daughter who, it turns out, is singing the completely wrong words. They’re sitting in a parked car listening to the music when she begins belting out the tune.
But Dad’s expression tells us just how much his sweet baby girl is driving him bonkers. He glances at the camera with quite the hysterical expression on his face.
“You’re getting the lyrics wrong.”
Apparently Maliya doesn’t care, because she keeps right on singing, glancing over at her dad once in a while. She points and shimmies in her seat. She’s a hoot to watch!
She gives Dad a few expressions that seem to test his patience. That, combined with the mistaken words, are about to do him in.
Maliya gives her dad a car concert for two more songs as Tay’s eyes glaze over. Parents can relate to some of his exasperated glances at the camera.
He’s so patient, but when she reaches over and steals his phone from his hand, Dad is done. No more.
We don’t care if Maliya sings all the wrong words. She’s so darn cute to watch!
Check out her awesome concert in the video below and be sure to watch Tay and his responses. He’s hilarious!
