    Sad to say, but she is living her life like its golden, I don’t blame her, she climbed the ladder with her stelittos (sp) and lightening creams. She knows it wont last forever, who cares what she looks like in 5 years anyways, we all probably will look like what she looks like in 5 years without cream anyways. so why try rain on her parade, may wish they could find magnates that will spoil them. not sure why all the hate, this attention as even made me go and look for lightening agent sef so me I can find magnate to spoil me. No be only low self esteem, who no like better thing, many are suffering for not doing anything to improve their situation, na so u dey diss the babe. Poverty is a bastard, don’t blame the married men who chase them or their diligent wives who stick to them.many women make their lives better from handouts, don’t be deceived by your mothers who never told you the whole story

      I quite agree with some parts of this. Many women can lie lie sha! Steady lying about their route to success, yet have the nerve to come and criticize the ones that are honest enough to tell it like it is. HYPROCRITE TOH BAD! Speak the truth and shame the devil jor. Many women live like this vixen right here, that is the truth; just because they hide their lifestyle and front like they are holy does not make it so.

    Ok people the interview was not intellectually challenging because the show is called #TheTrend aka what is trending on social media and it comes before and after the news on Fridays it is not a serious show they basically dissect what is currently trending on social media and the entertainment world so at the time of this interview she was trending due to her bleaching that’s why she was called in.

    This girl is the rudest person on earth I wish you guys understood swahili and went to her facebook page she is so rude thankfully people on her page who are mostly in the 18-25 age bracket give it right back to her. She will post rude stuff abusing people get a haterbag full of comments and then delete the post a few hours later when she can’t take the heat. She runs her mouth too much abusing people on Twitter and IG thinking she is RiRi or something. Silence is golden. By the way Kenyans on social media have given her a new name;
    Name: Vera Dinyika – dinyika is a corruption of a filthy swahili word for the baby making process
    Occupation: ENTER-PANUA lol PANUA is the swahili word for open aka open legs because she keeps saying she is an ENTREPRENEUR
    Office location: somewhere between the legs of a billionaire hahahaha

    At the end of the day, nobody goes home with these possessions when death calls. The only thing we leave behind is a good name.

    her skin looks good and even i must say. i think she looked better darker,now she’s just more noticeable due to her complexion. she needs to teach nigerian, congolese and camerounian women what she’s doing to make her skin even. the funny thing is that all the bleached girls look alike, they wear lots of makeup, big hair and have the same face, and you can always tell them apart from natural light skinned girls.
