Hata nyanyako alikuwa manyanga! Socialites who settled down after fame

kenyan socialites

They say no situation is permanent and I agree with that. There is time for everything, time to yolo and time to be serious with life. We have seen several socialites rule showbiz but after a short stint, many faded into insignificance.

The bootylicious public figure recently said she doesn’t regret ever being a socialite.

I BECAME A SOCIALITE WHILE STUDYING LAW AT THE KENYA SCHOOL OF LAW. I HAD GONE TO THE STUDIO FOR A CLIP WITH ERIC OMONDI AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER THERE ASKED TO TAKE PICTURES OF ME SAYING I LOOKED REALLY NICE. HE POSTED THEM ON FACEBOOK, AND LATER, MY FRIEND CALLED ME AND TOLD ME MY PICTURES WERE TRENDING ON TWITTER. I DON’T REGRET IT REALLY, I AM ACTUALLY GLAD IT HAPPENED THE WAY IT DID,’ SHE SAID IN A RECENT MEDIA INTERVIEW.

The law graduate added that being a socialite affected her personality.

IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT, I HAD TO STOP BECAUSE I WAS ALWAYS GETTING MISJUDGED. I HAVEN’T EVEN BOTHERED TO GO LOOKING FOR A JOB IN LAW. IN ALL OF MY RELATIONSHIPS, I TEND TO BE SEEN AS CORAZON THE SOCIALITE.

2. Risper Faith

The controversial socialite is married with a child. She is among the first clique of socialites who made headlines back in 2013 – 2017 before vanishing from the showbiz industry.

She met her lover Brian on Instagram and tied the knot in February 2018.

3. Vanessa ‘Chettle’ Cheruto

She was a great friend to Risper. From flaunting stacks of cash on social media to attending all top events, she was known by everyone in the showbiz industry.

She gave many  men sleepless nights during her heydays. But after parting ways with her sponsor a few years back, she has been keeping a low profile. She is a mother of two.  Cheruto lives in Eldoret with her baby daddy who’s said to be a DJ.
