Entrepreneur Michelle Ntalami and BBC journalist Makena Njeri are very close friends. The two have been penning romantic letters to each other, leaving many questioning their friendship.
A week ago, they made headlines after posting pics holding hands at the beach looking lovey-dovey and for the first time, Makena has spoken about their relationship.
In an interview with Mpasho.co.ke during the launch of a leading fashion house Devine Collections, where she is the brand ambassador, Makena said,
‘WE’RE VERY GOOD FRIENDS WHO MAKE A LOT OF WAVES IN THE COUNTRY WHERE WE SIT AND OF COURSE GLOBALLY. WE ARE ABOUT BOLDNESS, INTENTIONALLY AND JUST SPREADING LOVE ACROSS THE CONTINENT EVEN THE WHOLE WORLD. LOOK AT US AS PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY INTENTIONAL IN EVERY SINGLE THING THAT WE PUSH.’
She pampered her BFF with love and she said,
‘MICHELLE IS MY AMAZING AND GOOD FRIEND AND THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE SHOULD UNDERSTAND AND JUST ALSO UNDERSTAND THE KINDS OF BRANDS THAT WE ARE AND STOP THE SMALL LITTLE TALKS WHICH DON’T ACTUALLY MAKE SENSE.’
The journalist, whose fashion has always dazzled many, while speaking about her style said,
‘I HAVE ALWAYS DRESSED MYSELF. I GET CLOTHES FROM ALL DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE WORLD SO THIS WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT A KENYAN BRAND AND SAY IF YOU’RE BOLD, IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN BE ABLE TO HELP ME AT LEAST IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER THEN DEFINITELY WE CAN DO SOMETHING.’
MY STYLE IS VERY BOLD BECAUSE I BELIEVE I AM A BOLD HUMAN BEING SO I CARRY IT THROUGH AND THROUGH. I’M BUTCH AND NOT A TOMBOY.
