Vera Sidika Recalls Living In A Sh3500 Bedsitter

Vera Sidika, Brown Mauzo welcome a baby girl

Socialite Vera Sidika on Wednesday revealed that she once lived in a bedsitter and she never hated on those who had made it by then.

While responding to those who have been throwing shade at her, Vera said she is proud of her humble beginnings and she clapped for others as she waited for her turn.

“I proudly paid Sh3500 monthly rent without fail…zero arrears. Never once while inside my bedsitter did I hate on a single human being or been bitter [sic], that is why I am successful today.

“I was humble, happy for others as I waited for my turn…y’all broke bedsitter haters busy hating you think you’ll end up anywhere?” she asked.

Vera asked those hating on her to stop attacking her because they do not know much about her journey, instead advising them to wish others well so that they can be blessed.

This is not the first time Vera has gone on a rant on social media as a few months ago she told off comedian Akuku Danger for demanding payment after her gender reveal party.

Akuku claimed that Vera was to pay him Sh15,000 but paid only Sh10,000 before her security team bundled him out of the party.

Vera sought to set the record straight claiming the Sh5,000 Akuku was claiming was mere pocket change!

Through a lengthy post, Vera stated that she spent quite an amount during the gender reveal party and the comedian was unprofessional to go on a rant on social media.

The businesswoman went ahead to reveal that she spent a whooping Sh105,000 on water which went for Sh1,500 per bottle.

“To think that Sh5000 is anything…That is not even my call credit. My PA has my M-Pesa pin and he pays everyone in full before they set foot out of their house.

“Water alone cost me a whooping Sh105,000…Sh1500 per bottle for 70 of them. Water that can’t even be found on supermarket shelves. You have to order via a website,” she said.

Vera claimed Akuku was shocked to find expensive vehicles at the parking lot, something that made him want his balance settled immediately.

“I have never in my life paid anyone an exact amount if they delivered well…No matter how small their business is.

“If you start making demands over something that does not exist nobody will pay attention,” she wrote.

She Was Young At The Time, Tanasha Donna On Grudge With Bey T

Published

on

Barely two years after Tanasha Donna and Bey T stormed the internet to fight over a catchphrase, Tanasha has finally given details on her beef with the rapper for the first time.

According to the musician, the misunderstanding came after they both disagreed on an issue.

In an interview with KISS FM, the musician cum entrepreneur said Bey T was young and was misled by people into instigating petty quarrels.

“Honestly speaking I think it was just a misunderstanding, it started over a quote, the ‘Kenya to the world’ thing. And I like she was young at the time and like people tried instigating drama. You know how people can be… people can easily corrupt one’s mind, especially when there is nothing going on,” she said.

According to Tanasha, it is easy to have the feeling that people are out to kill your shine when starting, especially as a young girl in a competitive industry.

“Talking from experience as a young girl you can feel easily like people are out to get you or steal your shine…but I feel like she’s a great artist so she was trying to spit some bars which she is amazing at and I’ll give her credit for that,” she added.

 The mother of one confirmed that they have a good relationship following their beef  and now are both open to the idea of collaborating with Bey T even though the two have never met yet.

“Why not? I mean I like her music and she’s amazing. Plus, right now, we’re at a good place, we haven’t really met but we have people in common whom we work with,” she said.

Amid their banter, Bey T went ahead to drop a diss track called ‘Don to the Donna’ attacking Tanasha for allegedly sampling her music in 2019.

“Someone tell Tanasha to stop wave riding,” Bey T wrote on Instagram at the time.

According to the rapper, the phrase “Kenya to the World” originated from her, but Tanasha stole it.

The Hollywood actress delivered a wonderful surprise at the 13th convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Official details from NAACP indicate that the young students received the scholarships during the ACT-SO award ceremony in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

ACT-SO is a year-long program targeted at high school students to promote their growth in disciplines from visual arts, business, and performing and culinary arts.

NAACP partners with Lancôme to offer the Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, which focuses on empowering women through literacy, mentorship, and entrepreneurship.

Lupita, who is the Lancôme Ambassadress, indicated that she always had big dreams from childhood and education played a huge part in helping her realize them.

“I believe that learners change the world. I am so thrilled to join Lancôme, on behalf of their Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, to award this incredible group of women with these game-changing scholarships,” she said.

Popular Kenyan website, Tuko.co.ke, reported that two years ago, Lupita Nyong’o was nominated for four awards in the 51st edition of the NAACP Image Awards.

The actress, who did not manage to attend the award ceremony, emerged as a winner in two of the four categories she was nominated.

Lupita won the Best Actress award for her role in Jordan Peele’s movie and her second award was for Outstanding Literary Work Children for her book Sulwe.
