When you think of masculinity which celebrities come to mind? That is a question I had asked a couple of my friends as we sat down having some rather interesting conversations. The truth is a lot of Kenyan celebs are nothing more than simps. They are weak men who you can’t trust you have your back in a bind know would you even want them in your corner should you ever been pressed.
So you can imagine how difficult it was for us to come up with celebrities whose masculinity were respect but also whom we feel have shown themselves to be as steady as a rock when it comes to supporting their friends and families. No this isn’t about celebrities who haven’t had any scandals and are seen as upstanding members of society. That is because a lot of celebrities who your girlfriend who think are good men I am merely localised Will Smiths.
And by that I mean that they are too scared to rock the boat so they try and talk the line of what is considered acceptable by the Overton window and don’t say an opinion that is considered controversial even if it might truly be what they think or feel on a subject.
We narrow the list down 2 about five celebrity we feel any Kenyan man would do well to emulate. That is because they are not only stoic but they are loyal and have the cojones to stun shows down on their opinions and thoughts and defend them and should they be proven wrong they have no problem apologizing and switching to adapt to the face of new evidence. These five Kenyan celebrities are:
A lot has been said about him. He is an example of a man who tried and failed and tried again and though he has been met with a lot of failures in life he has also risen each time he has failed. Currently, he is a huge masculinity influencer who is teaching men to better themselves and while a lot of sensitive weak men and their families girlfriends find him to offensive to learn from he actually has a lot of germs there a lot of men who appreciate just how much he has taught them.
What can be said about him? He teaches men how to better themselves physically mentally healthy them financially. of the type of man you want around you in a fix in fact you probably would want your sons to grow up into a man that mirrors him.
Classical masculinity is known by certain traits. Described as stoicism, loyalty to one’s kith and kin and privacy. These are some of the qualities we see in literature from classical Greek stories such as the Iliad and the Odyssey on into more contemporary sources such as The Red Badge Of Courage. And your shinski has displayed these commendably. An example of his loyalty would be him bringing his former bandmates; Collo and Roba on stage with him for a Kleptomaniax reunion even though he doesn’t have to seeing as he is a bona fide star on his. He keeps his family respected by observing privacy.
This pic was influenced by my older mentor who said that even though his name isn’t necessarily as we now these days to young men, she was the first person to begin discussing the red pill and the manosphere in East and Central Africa. He has shown an abundance of conviction for his principles understood by them to the point of being harassed not only despite government’s past and he manage that all before use the age of 30.
He has built a business so he is a model of financial freedom and this is something every young man should aspire to. His opinions are sometimes divisive and polarizing but he stays ten toes down regardless of how badly he sometimes gets pilloried.
I am beginning to get an appreciation for the man because of just how loyal he is to his friends. Decided to check on his friend 2mbili’s crucifix and his champion in his case after he was abused by his babymama. The type of friend you really do want around you someone who will take all your battles as his own. That is loyalty. He has his own flaws as we all do as men and human beings but his redeeming qualities are of such immense value it is hard to argue that he isn’t a man was respecting.
This is a man who genuinely wants to see his friends succeed. he you can go to with a problem and he will try and help you solve it. In this time and time again and an example of his loyalty is when he was ironically caught cheating on his wife. Through the friends you was in a WhatsApp group with under the bus. That is an admirable quality because there are no virtues in the foxhole. He goes as far as to create opportunities for his friends to drive using his own platforms that is an admirable quality.
