These boobs have grown too big and I need my small ones back, says Kenyan Socialite Vera Sidika after plastic surgery



Has your woman thought of having plastic surgery despite your flattery that she’s the hottest thing since the G-string?

She is not alone.

See, most women desire to have a perfect body without ‘love hooks’, stretch marks, sagging breasts that can be suckled from the back, or pot belly that calls for nimble manoeuvring when buttoning the blouse.

Though most women would rather be shot than publicly admit it, they have either thought of it or already done it. Just why the well-heeled take ‘cosmetic surgery holidays’ in South Africa or USA, from where they return with lifted boobs and firmer butts.

These procedures are not for Kenyans who fret over ‘small’ things like the price of unga. Consider this: To alter your looks would cost between Sh200,000 and Sh300, 000 and slightly more for breast reconstruction at between Sh220,000 and Sh350,000.

Lifting a dropping butt will cost between Sh150,00 and Sh200,000, which is the same price for ‘lifting thighs’ and conducing vaginoplasty and labioplasty. The cheapest cosmetic surgery is liposuction (removal of excess fat) at between Sh90,000 and Sh220,000 and ‘brow lift,’ which ranges from Sh100,000 to Sh200,000.

Socialite Vera Sidika had her own cosmetic surgery, which cost her an arm and a leg, but which she’s now not proud of at all. “I have had boob surgery before, years ago in Beverly Hills, California. I paid a lot for the procedure. Yes, it’s more expensive but worth it because you get qualified and certified surgeons with over 20 years’ experience,” she told The Nairobian.

“Still, I am not proud of that decision anymore. Today, I regret the boob job. In fact, I even want to get rid of them, all of you ladies rushing to Miami for surgery should learn to love yourselves. If you must, Miami is not the place. Hustle harder and go to Beverly Hills,” she added.

Another socialite and one-time Big Brother Africa contestant, Huddah Monroe, went for a cosmetic surgery safari to enhance her boobs, but the procedure was botched as she recently admitted on social media. She had to undergo reconstructive surgery in Beverly Hills. She wrote: “Got complications from a previous cosmetic surgery I had and I am pleased with my doctors who have done incredible job on me. I can’t be more thankful! I could’ve died, but I’m well now.’’

Huddah told The Nairobian that, “I don’t regret doing my surgery. I did not have any self-esteem issues, I just wanted my dress to look good.”

And just so you know, the cost of the surgery could have bought a decent car for those who know more shoe shiners than mechanics. “It was expensive,” recalls Huddah. “I had to pay Sh1,020,000.”

Indeed, most city women wouldn’t mind going under the knife as Dr Ferdinand Nangole of Fortis Health Care Centre in Nairobi explains:  “Though a lot of Kenyans may not say it publicly that they have gone under the knife, they are seeking these procedures. Most Kenyan women request breast reduction procedures or implants and liposuction. There is nothing wrong with women wanting to look better,” he explains, adding that cosmetic enhancements have to do with a person’s self-esteem.

“When young people come for these surgeries, it is mostly about breast reduction that means they are too big and they do not feel comfortable. Some ask for breast enlargement, mostly ladies in their 20s who consider their breasts to be too small and feel left out. They would want to enhance their breasts to be like ‘other’ girls,” explains Dr Nangole, adding that plastic and some reconstructive surgeries are not covered by health insurance and “patients have to pay in cash.”

While a majority of men admire women with behinds that can tempt the pope, butt enhancement is the least sought after cosmetic procedure.

Dr Nangole points out that about “40 per cent of the patients are either requesting for a boob implants, breast lifts or reduction, followed by liposuction, which accounts for about 30 per cent. Butt lifting accounts for 20 per cent, with 10 per cent of the patients requesting for other surgeries. But since 2015, we have started getting more butt lift requests.”

However, these procedures do not last forever. After every 10 to 15 years, the breast implants may need to be removed and replaced and “you will also find that most of Kenyan Caucasian women will ask for facial procedures like face lifts and anti-wrinkle injections, but it is the least requested by African women,” adds Dr Nangole.

For those who do not want surgical procedures, there are non-surgical procedures which include filler and botox. “The procedures last for about 10 to 20 minutes but for botox, you will need to follow up after three months. While fillers last for about one year, there are two main types – the artificial and the fat graft, which lasts longer. These are highly requested by 35-60 year olds,” Dr Nangole explains and clarifies that Kenya is yet to grow ‘lunchtime’ and ‘safari cosmetic’ procedures into medical fads.

While these procedures are harmless, Dr Nangole warns that patients need to disclose any illnesses, medications and drug use, if they smoke or drink alcohol and any other family illnesses before any procedure can be done to avoid complications. Patients with HIV/Aids can also undergo the procedures. “Patients with HIV can seek plastic surgery procedures like facelifts, liposuction and breast implants, which can be done, as long as they are not terminally ill,” says Dr Nangole.

Beautiful Anita Nderu leaves Team Mafisi confused after declaring that she is a member of LGBTQ Community



Kenyan media personality Anita Nderu has sparked mixed reactions online after announcing she is a member of the LGBTQ community.


Nderu, a former presenter at Capital FM, revealed this through a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, saying she hopes her kids will not be subjected to what she has gone through for being LGBTQ.

“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” Anita wrote.

Her announcement comes weeks after she came under heavy criticism from social media users for hosting two gay men on her YouTube show. Anita later defended her show, saying her guests were only friends who decided to show their real selves.

In July this year, Nderu said she would not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.

The video, which was meant for viewers over the age of 18, caught the attention of many, which led to her trending for days.

Speaking to Massawe on Radio Jambo, Anita said she respects people’s opinions but she will not apologise.

She said she has always been open about different things happening around, and so this being pride month, she decided to invite some of her friends on the show.

“I simply asked my friends to come on my web show and be themselves. What any of us have chosen to do on the show is how each of us is. Nothing about my show is scripted. What you see from the guests, food to outcome is what actually genuinely took place,” she said.

Anita has not been secretive about being a staunch supporter of Kenyan lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons.

“As people, we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity & wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved. Have an amazing day,” she added.

Here is why people think I am gay, Kenyan woman opens up



The Kenyan woman had been rumored to be a lesbian for a long time but no one was quite sure whether that was indeed true.

Not that being gay ia an unusual or a new thing. However, a lot of eyebrows are still being raised when it comes to the issue perhaps because homosexuality is considered an illegal activity in Kenya

Sometime in October 2017 Patricia Kihoro was rumored to have been caught pants down in a lesbian threesome with some other Kenyan women.

But now the Popular Vlogger, actress and singer says her efforts to keep her love life private was the sole reason that led to speculations that she was lesbian.

At the time, it was reported that Kihoro was in a relationship with a well-known female Kenyan rapper and as well as another female media personality.

But the 34-year-old says she has always dated men but kept her relationships low key, which explains why people started speculating she was playing for the other ‘team’.


“For the longest time, I was dating men. If you go through my Instagram over the years I didn’t even hide. I would post people but it wasn’t like lovey-dovey stuff, if you were keen you would see who I was dating at the time. I would post them in the context that this is somebody in my life but I wouldn’t reveal in what way they are in my life. I think of how private I kept that side of my life, people then speculate, start to make up things,” Kihoro said.

Kihoro shot into the limelight back in 2009 when she took part in the singing competition Tusker Project Fame 3 where she was among the finalists.

She later landed a job as a presenter for Homeboyz Radio and also ventured into acting. Over the years she has also been a very active YouTube vlogger and brand influencer.

“I have been accused of being a lesbian but first of all, it is not an accusation, because calling me a lesbian is not an insult as I have met wonderful human beings who are homosexual and are far better than people who have stood in certain standards of judging others.

So that is why I never speak about it. I am who I am, you know! I know what I stand for and my family knows what I stand for,” said Patricia.

Patricia further revealed that her mother has been very supportive of her work and opinion. She reveals that her first interaction with gay people was courtesy of her mother.

“My mother has supported my work from the start and she always respects my opinion. The first people I ever met who were openly gay were friends of my mum. I was probably 16 years and she didn’t make a big deal about it, and therefore I also did not learn that was a big deal,” revealed Patricia.
