Vera Sidika strips down for the gram
Socialite Vera Sidika left members of the team “mafisi sacco” salivating over her curvaceous body after striping down for the gram.
On Tuesday, the bootylicious queen took the internet by storm with her tiny Bikini photo, as she exposed acres of skin on the gram, leaving many drooling over her curves with crazy reactions.
A cross check by Pulse Live indicates that the photo in question has attracted all kinds of comments and by the time of publishing this article it had over 4000 comments.
"Comment using a movie title 😂 ....I’m actually dressed up y’all just gotta ZOOM to see it. 😉🤷🏽♀️MOMBASA Rahaaaaaa Tena Sanaaaaaa duh 🙆🏾♀️ @buoart” Vera captioned that photo in question.
However, a section of fans who were not impressed by Vera’s over exposed body moved in quickly to dress her up using Photoshop, something that left her in stitches.

On the other hand, Ms Sidika has relocated her high-end salon “Vera Sidika Beauty Parlour” to Nyali in Mombasa. She opted to move her business from Westlands to Nyali after shifting her residence from Nairobi to Mombasa.
Previously, Vera Sidika Beauty Parlour that was officially launched in May 2018, used to be located at the Western Heights, in Westlands, but closed its doors when Corona checked in.
Diamond’s reaction after Harmonize fell from zip line
WCB Boss and singer Diamond Platnumz has reacted after former WCB signed artiste Rajab Abdul Kahali aka Harmonize fell from a zip line as he made a grand entrance at a show in Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, in Dar es Salaam.
After the incident, a fan only identified as Archbordy went to comment on Diamond’s post informing him of what had happened.
The fan mentioned that one of his sons had fallen before his performance and he (Archbordy) though it was because he had forgotten the teachings he received while at WCB record label.
“Kuna kijamna wako kaanguka huku, nafikiri amesahau mazoezi ya WCB….!” Said the fan.
In a quick response, Diamond said to the fan that accidents do happen sometimes whenever people are at work, and the good thing to do is to pray for him instead of laughing at him.
“@archbody Ajali kazini, inatokea wakati mwingine…. Msimcheke, Muombeeni ndio Uungwana,” said Diamond Platnumz.
Harmonize was the lead act at the Young Africans Sports Club (Yanga) Day celebrations that were held on Sunday. Despite the fall, it remains unknown whether the Konde Music Worldwide CEO sustained any injuries as he went ahead to give a commendable performance.

Lillian Muli makes U-turn on reports that she goes after her men
Citizen TV news anchor Lillian Muli seems to have made a U-turn on her words barely three days after she said that she goes after her men.
The mother of two said that those who think she chases men should continue waiting for her to chase them.
“Now see what you have done lol. The amount of DM’s I am getting now one would imagine this is a dating app. Honestly don’t believe evething you hear. I am taken my heart belongs to one man only. I am not chasing or looking. Only man I’m chasing is Jesus. Happy Friday my loves.
Ati I chase men??? Lol wait for me to chase you. I’m here chasing my vision and these stories just crack me up!” said Lillian Muli.
This however, gives a contradicting account to what she said on Radio Maisha a few days ago, when she was asked about the worst pickup line she had ever gotten from a man hitting on her.
“The worst pickup line ushawai pata kwa msee ni gani?” asked Mbaruk.
The mother of two said “Honestly, I can’t answer that because mimi huwa sikatiwi, mimi ndio the other way round.”
