Women, and men for that matter are embracing the term socialite, a few years ago just mentioning that one was a socialite seemed like a taboo.
In Kenya socialites are considered mostly to be women who will do anything for fame and money including stripping for pictures to accepting money for sexual favours
Search the term socialite on the internet and pictures of Huddah, Vera Sidika, Corazon, Risper and Bridget Achieng will pop up. The ladies are currently doing good in life, way better than they were when they started being branded as socialites.
Going back in time and comparing their now pictures, one can hardly tell who these women were. Check out some throwback pictures of these ladies before money started trickling in.
Huddah has done a lot for herself and is one of the socialites who is street smart. She managed to rise from nothing to owning her own “empire” dubbed Huddah Cosmetics. Nowadays she globe trots from continent to continent the way you and I travel between counties.
Vera is one who loves controversy and will never shy away from it long as it brings money to her bank. She decided to bleach her skin tone claiming that she felt insecure as most men she meets have a preference of light skin women. She has created a name for herself in the entertainment industry by being a club host in and out of Kenya, a video vixen and owner of a beauty and spa pallor.
Her big derriere attracts attention wherever she goes, and she loves it. The lawyer cum businesswoman also has a passion for travel, unlike her counterparts she is the most chilled socialite.
The former Nairobi Diaries cast is the perfect example of starting from the bottom. She only came to Nairobi to pursue her dreams not too long ago and is now a married wife and mother living in a palatial home in the leafy suburbs of Kitusuru.
Growing up in Kibera didn’t stop Bridget from rising the ladder however way she could. The once hustler now lives in Kilimani and runs her own foundation.
