Vera Sidika ready to part with Sh1 Million in order to slay in the delivery room (Screenshots)

Businesswoman Vera Sidika disclosed that’s she is ready to part with up to Sh1 million in order to slay during the birth of her first child.

In a number of updates, Ms Sidika said that she is ready to foot the bills of a VIP delivery room at a private Hospital in Nairobi for her desired C-section delivery.

She pointed out that she has always wanted to deliver her child through C-Section because she doesn’t want to experience labour pains.

“They say CS is expensive but if you really want it. you’d prepare better even if you don’t have money. That’s 9 months of saving. For private hospitals case is super different. Could part with a whooping ksh.1 million for CS delivery & the whole VIP treatment. But hey! we don’t get pregnant everyday so why not” wrote Vera.

Vera added that she wants to slay when going to the delivery room; complete with her makeup and Wig on.

“Ever since I thought of having kids in my adult life, i said to myself i’ll do it only if i don’t have to experience labor. Lol so, I have forever been team CS. Elective CS (scheduled) i don’t want to feel an inch of labor pain.

In fact, I even wanna slay; have my wig & make upon fleek during my delivery. I honestly can’t deal with pain. yeah, y’all keep saying c.s takes longer to heal” said Vera.

Ms Sidika noted that he is afraid of normal delivery due to the pain that tags along the whole process.

“Vaginal delivery? nah not doing that to my vagina. Imagine a pain that was a curse from god. I can’t even think of it. All I know is that if I go vaginal I’ll probably not wanna have another baby. I’ve had friends trying to convince me to do vaginal. They failed. lol nobody can convince me otherwise. But the truth is, you can never know how your experience will be until that day comes”.

She went to acknowledge that every delivery story is different.

“You will dance naked & run like a mad woman. lmaoooo hell nah not me

something new I heard :Your vagina tears up like whaaaaat! then ati they stitch your vagina afterwards ai. Apana. Wacha nibaki kwa CS tu. I’m okay. Ata kama it’ll take forever to heal. Sina haraka. I’m willing to live with the scar. evidence of the purest form of love”.

Meet CS Amina Mohamed's daughter who is a Manager at Gucci

Sports CS Amina Mohamed’s daughter Firyal Nur Al Hossain mourned the death of her father who succumbed to a short illness at Karen Hospital in Nairobi on July 29.

"You are my moon, my sun, my universe, my beginning, my end. Without you I am lost daddy,” she wrote on her Instagram story.

Unknown to many Kenyans, Firyal is a Brand and Culture Manager at Gucci one of the world most popular luxury brands.

According to her LinkedIn profile, she is the chair of the Gucci Changemakers Volunteer Program and a co-chair of the Gucci Business Resource Group.

“The true reward in being part of the team to build and launch Gucci Changemakers is watching it grow and evolve over time,” she says in one of her IG posts.

She has been working at the fashion brand for 4 years and has met Hollywood stars like Kanye and Kim Kardashian.

Firyal met the duo during the Paris Fashion Week in 2014 where they loved her NUR designs so much that they placed orders for a few pieces.

The fashionista doesn’t keep a low profile as her father but her anonymity helps her wade through Kenya unnoticed unlike with many children of Kenya’s ruling class.

She has worked for the UN where she served a 3-month internship and an additional 5 months as a hired consultant at UNEP offices in Kenya.

Firyal has not banked her career on her mother's reputation. She did, however, follow in her mom's footsteps along the way, having graduated from the United States International University of Nairobi with a degree in international relations.

In November 2020, Firyal hit US headlines after she was rumoured to be dating actor Michael B Jordan.

His engagement on her Instagram page led the actor’s fans into thinking he had his eyes on her before he confirmed that he was dating Lori Harvey.
