The beginning of Maduli's long-term relationship with her boyfriend Kimo, an artist manager, dates back to 2012.
Having been friends for several years, the couple took their friendship a notch ahead when Kimo made the first move. Ever since they began dating, they have always been open about their togetherness.
Kimo also timely makes online posts dedicated to her, reciprocating the same love. Showing his support for Maduli on the release of her dream show, Talk Story, he shared a post describing his proud moment as such,
Let me first say that Im incredibly proud of this woman right here. Over the years, I’ve seen McKenna cover premieres, award shows, and events on the biggest stages...She’s had to be patient and learn to take no for an answer (incredibly hard for her lol) but the time has come, “Talk Story” is here. Congrats my love, you’ve earned this and Im happy to share this moment with you.
The couple's endless saga of uploading their cozy pictures together has been a treat to their social media followers. But they have not shared their plan of becoming husband and wife yet.
All in all, the two have been each other's most powerful support system in every aspect of their lives, setting the couple-goals standard very high.
Maduli is not only blessed to have such an adoring partner but is also lucky to have a family sharing a tight knitted bond.
