Flamboyant city lawyer Donald ‘Don’ Kipkorir has said one of the things he will enjoy during this self-quarantine era is the voluptuous TV female anchors.
Taking to his Twitter account, Don penned that TV audiences seem to crave curvier anchors.
‘As we get to relax in this forced #coronavirusinKenya Break, I get to see that our TV female anchors, all of whom are popular with viewers are Voluptuous.
When did Kenyans move away from slim tall girls as symbols of beauty? Or as economy gets hard, people take refuge in volume?’
Fellow lawyer Ahmednasir responded that he had earlier pointed it out but he was ignored.
‘When I raised this a few months ago…in a more diplomatic and more polite style than you did…I was attacked by a large number of tv anchors…I see they are keeping their peace this time.’
Donald Kipkorir further pointed out that it’s a trend that he had noted in all channels.
‘guess am a late bloomer …. Suffering from Coronavirus Curfew Claustrophobia, I shuffled all local Channels & saw uniformity in the female anchors .’
Below are some of the reactions.
@OkwachDee: Slim tall girls was the European standard..Media houses have just realized that an African viewer is appealed by some little meat on the bones..True African beauty them days was measured on how voluptuous a woman was.
@jchieftain: Bro, volume is the new thing in town! Everyone is no longer appreciating slim, guess tv stations have been forced to adapt. 2 in every 10 ladies aren’t voluminous.
@DonaldBKipkorir: No wonder in town, everyone is BIG! So, what happened to those who are slim? Or they also adjusted?
@MartinMarete: Nowadays we all love ASSets and anchors with a bright future right behind them.
@vanderbilt_lui: There’s one at KTN appearing in my dreams causing sleepless nights.
@BinaMaera: When they were slim TV boxes used to sitting allowances now the TV is flat the tv anchors took what the TV used to enjoy
@sangdebby: Allow us grow thick, uchumi ni mbaya hata time ya work out issa scam.
@ssbo: Slim ladies bado tuko! But the market has shifted to voluminous now we are working on a serious weight gain diet.
@Shivelenjejumba: Na sisi wanaume tukiwa Voluptuous mnaanza mekhe mekhe ati hutuna chuma ya doshi.
@CaptainKipkorir: This is real,they think that viewers are interested in the size and shape of their buttocks hehe. Some expose droopy boobs, others clad in semi-knit attires. Ladies can’t stop amazing us.
