When it comes to trends, today’s lit is nowhere in tomorrow’s list of lits. And hairstyles are one thing that keep on changing. Now, when Diamond Platinumz changed his hairstyle to what he’s got now, people wondered what was getting into the star’s head. But wait, that’s what other celebrities are doing out there.
If you’ve seen our own Boss of MOG, that’s his latest hairstyle. Well, might have come at a later stage hence some can point out that he copied that from Diamond.
Have you seen Jason Derulo lately, he’s donning the same hairstyle. As much as it makes someone look like a real gangsta, it’s actually becoming a favourite to top celebrities .
Netizens are a very funny lot, you know, very funny. How they express their feelings behind their keyboards keeps one confused.
We all saw what happened when Achieng’ Abura passed on. The tweetsphere was awash with RIPs and crocodile tears from people who had deserted her when she needed them most.
Late last week we lost Miss Nyamira County Mercy Mokeira. So sad losing such a young life, full of dreams and doing so much to change the society.
The mourning on social media however is something else. This caught my eye. The mourning on social media equals the very negative degree of receiption she received when she was declared Miss Nyamira County as well as when she posted photos of herself with a Lang’ata prison inmate.
So what changes? Why do we express so much hypocrisy and shed crocodile tears? Let’s appreciate people in their lifetime, not bash them only to say how great they were once the curtain falls on them.
We probably have at one time heard of a celebrity who used to be black but for unknown reasons decided to lighten his/her skin to white. Some are following suit. But did they really ‘bleach’ their skins ama ni maisha ilikuwa nzuri? Let’s take a look at some of the celebrities who are rumored to have done the same.
The late pop king used to be black. If you have watched his earlier videos, especially with the ‘Jackson 5’, you’ll realise that he was actually black. He however at some point decided to undergo a number of surgeries to lighten his skin. His doctor Conrad Murray said that MJ did it to erase the memory of the abuses he underwent in his father’s hands simply because he was black.
2. Nicki Minaj.
Her minajesty has never spoken about the popular belief that she underwent plastic surgery to enhance her looks. It’s widely claimed that Nicki not only lightened her skin but also enlarged her boobs and booty.
3. Verah Sidika.
Now closer home, Queen Vee the Bosschick is widely known to have lightened her skin. Verah even accepted to have done it, claiming her body is her business (forgive the pun). She then goes ahead to give Nicki and Rihanna as people who did it and are doing on well.
4. General Defao.
This Congolese maestro is also in the books of those artistes who saw it prudent to try the other side of the skin color. It’s not known what led him into making that decision.
5. Atomi Sifa.
One and only Kenyan man in this list. The ‘ Emmah Atoti Super‘ hitmaker used to be dark-skinned but too decided that it was time to go white.
Why do people lighten their skins? Well, to be white. But is it really such a big deal?
Extremely popular British publication Daily Mail published an article on the lavish lifestyle’s of Nigerians featuring a ray of wealthy young businessmen and artistes among them Mephis, Mochedda and Bnaira.
The rich kids of Instagram never disappoint when it comes to flaunting their extreme wealth on social media.
But it’s generally young people who hail from the UK, the US and Russia that are known for showing off their private jets, designer clothes and luxury holidays.
Now, however, they’ve got some stiff competition from the wealthiest young people in Nigeria – Africa’s biggest economy – whose exploits are documented by the Richkidsnaija Instagram account.
However in a few of the photos, Daily Mail made a mistake by featuring Kenya’s Huddah with her pink Range Rover and South African rapper AKA pictured alongside his girlfriend TV girl Bonang Matheba. Goes to show that even some of the most prestigious publications can make mistakes.
Whatever the case, the publicity is awesome for the socialite turned beauty entrepreneur.
