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.
Some have decided to settle down and start families while others went underground and are currently in the business world.
Below are five former socialites who ditched the profession for something else.
1. Corazon Kwamboka
She is currently running Corazon clothing and Genio Wear (gym outfits for women).
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, 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 sleepless nights during her heydays. But after parting ways with her sponsor a few years back, she went back to the village somewhere in Rift Valley only to resurface with a child. She’s currently pregnant with her second child.
At some point, she tried her luck in Nairobi Diaries but failed terribly. Cheruto is no longer on social media.
She’s Prezzo’s ex-lover
4. Toxic Juliet Wheeller
The former controversial socialite is married to a mzungu man and currently lives somewhere in Europe.
5. Soila Cole
She was famous for posting nude photos. Just like her counterparts, alikuwa moto wa gazeti in short, she didn’t last long. Nowadays she’s a video vixen and commercial model. She nolonger posts semi nude pics. Rumor has it that she gave birth.
6. Bridget Achieng
She is the mother of a one-year-old son and runs a few businesses.
She gave birth to her child through Cs and through her YouTube channel, she addressed her Nigerian baby daddy, who she claimed abandoned her when she was three months pregnant.
WHEN YOU ASKED ME TO TERMINATE MY PREGNANCY WHEN I WAS THREE MONTHS PREGNANT I WAS ALL ALONE, DISTURBED AND DEPRESSED,’ she said,
I DON’T KNOW WHAT MADE YOU GO AWAY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT MADE YOU RUN AWAY. I KEPT LOOKING AT MYSELF IN THE MIRROR AND ASKING ‘AM I UGLY?
