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.

Corazon Kwamboka on how she beat disease to conceive



Corazon Kwamboka is one of the most famous socialites on social media.

The law graduate, however, is not known for her legal work. Her fame arises not only from the scintillating photos she posts on her social media pages showing places she has travelled, but also from the way she presents her body in a way that leaves little to imagination.

This week, she was one of the trending topics on social media after revealing that she is pregnant after several unsuccessful attempts.

She posted to her 636,000 Instagram followers how endometriosis, which she was diagnosed with last year, had dimmed her hopes of ever becoming pregnant.The beauty gushed about how she can’t wait to hold her baby, showing off her baby bump.

In the post addressed to her unborn child, she wrote: “If someone told me January last year that I’d be feeling you kick deep in my belly at the sound of your father’s voice, I’d most definitely think they were deranged! Endometriosis had crippled my dreams of birthing a child. But here we are; a pleasant and welcome surprise. I can’t wait to meet you, hold you and teach you everything I know.”

Endometriosis is a disease where womb tissue grows else-where in a woman’s body, such as the fallopian tubes, ovaries, around the pelvis and sometimes the lungs, causing extreme pain and sometimes infertility.

Gynaecologist Wanjiku Ndung’u told the Nation recently that if the multiplying cells grow elsewhere apart from the uterus, they cause infl ammation. It be-comes painful for the woman during periods because menses have a restrained fl ow and thus they form cysts that cause fric-tion and hence the pain.The cause of endometriosis is not known, according to Dr Joachim Osur, a sexual medicine expert.

“There are many theories. This also means that the treatment is very difficult because eff orts to suppress its symptoms with drugs also interfere with natural processes of the uterus,” he wrote in the Daily Nation re-cently.

Corazon is rumoured to be dating a popular fi tness enthusiast, Mr Frankie Kiarie.

Before allegedly hooking up with Corazon, Frankie and YouTuber Maureen Waititu enjoyed a five-year relationship that saw them bear two boys. The couple even came up with a thriving YouTube channel ‘Alphabeta’ that saw fans refer to them as the ‘You-Tuber couple’.

Frankie, speaking on their break-up, said that they had irreconcilable differences that made them separate.

“The point of this is to let you know that people say some things to be funny or relevant on Twitter or Instagram, but someone’s day-to-day life is being affected. We are not in a good place yet. I have known Maureen for six years and loved her for every one of those years. That kind of love doesn’t fade. Sometimes things don’t happen the way you expect them to. Our main focus now is the kids and creating a healthy environment for them,” Frankie said.

The two are rumoured to have been keeping the pregnancy a secret for months now, but sources say the lawyer is in her second trimester. In her post, Corazon said she was glad that she chose a man whom she is sure will be a good father to her unborn child because she had seen him raise his other children.

“To the baby’s father; I couldn’t have chosen a better person to do this with. I see the good in you and how you raise your own and I know my child will be loved eternally,” she wrote.Endometriosis affects more than 170 million women across the globe. The most common symptoms are pain and menstrual irregularities.

Effective treatments, such as hormones and excision surgery, are avail-able. Surgically removed cysts typically look like balls of fl esh.

Corazon had earlier revealed that she intends to be a mother in 2020, having struggled with ovarian cysts, which was successfully removed sometime last year through surgery.Corazon, who was admitted to the Bar in 2016, said that her status as a socialite has been a major hindrance to her law practice.

“It made me not practise law. I feel that at some point, I was being misjudged in a way so I pulled back from the law. I didn’t even want to go look for a job be-cause I was scared ‘how will they even give me the job?’ and also it affected a lot of my relationships since I became Corazon Kwamboka the socialite,” she said in an earlier interview.Four years ago, a man claim-ing to be Corazon’s father accused her of breaking their family while urging her to focus on her law career.“My very bright girl should stop this socialite thing and practise law.

She can be an amazing lawyer. I also realise she is over 18 and can’t make career choices for her. I pray for her every day,” said the man, Mr Osmond Sambu Okero.

Nimrod Taabu parades his cooking skills while preparing special dinner for wife



Nimrod Taabu is not just good with reading the Swahili news; but also a good cook who has left many men feeling the pressure after parading his cooking skills!

Well, just like a good husband Nimrod took his time to prepare what looks like a yummy vegetable dinner with some rice.

As seen on his Twitter, Nimrod left his fans salivating with photos of the finished product proving that away from TV; he might as well start a 5 star hostel!

This is however one of the very few times Nimrod has come out to share any information about his wife on social media.

Nimrod Taabu’s dinner

Tulieni sasa. This is what i was doing for her. Amesema tukimaliza kula nijifunge mask ya doktari kwa macho…😉

Nimrod’s mum

Well, having been raised by a mother (Alice Taabu) who was not only a chef but a TV host for a cooking show proves that Nimrod was raised right! This means he probably spent most of his time in the kitchen while his mum prepared food; and of course learnt one or two things about the kitchen.

For this reason Nimrod Taabu’s wife must feel like the luckiest woman in the world especially with her husband handy in the kitchen!

Husband material!

For those doubting his skills, Nimrod challenged his colleagues/friends Linus Kaikai, Jageyo; Rashid Abdalla among others to show what they are made of!

However looking at the photos of the meals prepared by Taabu, I can understand why the ‘boys club’ members could not accept the online challenge.

The NTV news anchor however joins the list of romantic men in Kenya; and truth is they don’t make them like they used to before! Probably the younger generation of men should try and learn a thing from Nimrod who has proven that men can also belong in the kitchen!

Michelle Ntalami sets record straight days after fueling lesbianism rumors with Makena Njeri



Last week, Michelle Ntalami and Makena Njeri sparked speculations that they were an item after Makena serenaded the Marini Naturals’ CEO with sweet words on her birthday.

Now, the Nairobi-born entrepreneur has decided to clear the air on the issue once and for all, calling out clout chasers for “affixing labels on people who are not what they call them”.

Michelle articulated that relationships’ dynamics are too complex for someone to just slap a label on another person. Before clarifying:

If I haven’t said it myself, you have no right to go labeling me this or that. I hardly address trolls. But today I’m setting the record straight! Get this from both the Queen and the horse’s mouth; I AM NOT WHAT YOU ARE LABELLING ME.

This was all she had to stay, before categorically stating “she is not here to explain her life to anybody nor admit to any allegations leveled against her”.

When I work hard, you troll. When I play hard, you troll. When I love hard, you troll. TF?

The young entrepreneur went ahead to confess to her fans that “she never signed up to be anyone’s role model”.

So if her life is a bother to anyone, then they could as well pack and leave.

I signed up to live my dream! If this has inspired others along the way, great! So pick what floats your boat about me and move with it. But don’t tell me how I should live my life, what I should ‘admit’ to or what position you reckon I like.
