Michelle Ntalami has come out to reveal she really would love to settle down with a man and start a family. This flies in the face of the fact that for the longest time she’s identified as a member of the Kenyan LGBTQ brigade.
But this is nothing new if you’re an avid reader of mine because we had already mentioned why she does so albeit under the guise as a commercial endeavour. Think about it, didn’t it ever strike you as odd that a lesbian would often share thirst trap posts? Who were they geared towards?
Now that she has revealed she wants to eventually get into a heterosexual relationship, then we know Michelle Ntalami has been advertising all along, we just got the product wrong! It was always about her availability for the right man.
“Any quasi-psychologist or student of humanity seated at the bar counter can see that these posts have precious little to do with her trying to help her clients move product. Why? Because she largely only ever gets endorsements for female products. That would negate her strategy. She is doing this for attention.
And Michelle Ntalami has every right to do what she wants on her page but we need to stop pretending it isn’t what it is or ascribing artistic intention to it. It is time for the naked truth.”
And while there’s nothing wrong with the fact that she is advertising her availability, the truth is that this is to the way to do it to attract the type of man she would ideally want to get with. No high-value man would take a 38-year-old woman who posts thirst traps seriously.
Also, of interest was her long list of qualities she wants in said man. But Michelle Ntalami is a truly attractive woman despite her age and I am sure a lot of men are probably in her DMs right now trying to plead out their case and perhaps get into her pants and her life on a permanent basis.
One day we will discuss the fact that she is a very clear case of how immutable biology is with regards to men and women’s primal urge to procreate and then settle down but that is a conversation for another day. Today’s lecture was all about how we here at Ghafla had called it when we said she was looking for a man.
Michelle Ntalami took netizens by storm when she revealed a new partner on her Instagram stories called Mario who she claimed to be dating. They were drunk and in the video she nearly flashed her hooha as she danced to whatever song was playing and then showed us her new person’s face.
Less than 24 hours later she has recanted all that and blamed it on the alcohol claiming she was just in her feelings and she wanted to show appreciation to her chauffer. Feel free to roll your eyes at this point because this excuse is simply ludicrous!
But the thing is, for anyone who is new on social media, this recent publicity stunt by Michelle Ntalami is surprising but for the seasoned veterans such as my young self and everyone who reads my rather insightful views on here, this was par of the course for her. She is quite literally a tease and one whom only fools take seriously.
You see, in the past, I have pointed out the fact that she’s a little bit of an attention seeker who is more than willing to tease even men inorder to sell products. Nothing wrong with that but it is very interesting that she, a self-confessed lesbo or is it a bi-woman? Anyway, she’s a member of the LGBTQ brigade so why would she focus her product pitches to men? Unless of course, she loves the unrequited attention.
Then again, Kenyan men are simps so who am I to try and stop her hustle even if I could? But this was a new low for the 38-year-old woman. She is literally just trying to squeeze the last drops of attention from her audience and while it was spectacular in the moment, it is a literal flash in the pan. And then the question of what next comes to mind.
I mean, do you remember when she and Anita Nderu fanned dating rumours? To what end was that ludicrous nonsense? It only served to call attention to themselves without them having anything of substance to push with it. There was no product to sell, there was nothing meaningful to call attention to, it was just Michelle Ntalami doing things for shits and giggles.
Or do you remember the fact that during all her birthdays she releases risque photographs of herself? She does this simply so we can talk about them and your father can get new content for his spank bank. So really, why would anyone be surprised that she shared (and potentially endangered) another woman’s life by showing her off just because? And I am not joking about that. Think back to how Transgender activist Latoya Jackson was attacked on the streets of Kangemi. Kenyans aren’t entirely accommodating of alternative lifestyles. But hey, it’s all in good fun right?
Kenya has some rather brave celebrities who are openly LGBTQ. To understand why I label them as brave, you need to understand that Kenya is a very conservative nation and regardless of how things appear on the surface in cosmopolitan cities like Mombasa and Nairobi, homosexuality is still frowned upon.
As a result, for the longest time, some celebrities, like their fellow members of the LGBTQ community have had to live in the closet to avoid facing the wrath of members of the general public, some of whom would willingly harm them simply for their sexual orientation.
That is why I would expect the openly gay celebs to have very strong relationships with each other because they aren’t just a minority but a persecuted one at that. You would think that this would make them band together in a celebration of the one thing they are forced to publicly deny themselves: love.
Instead, whenever you hear of LGBTQ celebs and look at their love lives, they are littered with heartbreaks and betrayals. I mean, look at Michelle Ntalami and Makena Njeri’s relationship. Look at Makena Njeri and her ex. Look at Brenda Johns and Phy Lamar. Fam, those are some hella unstable messes. Noti Flow and King Alami.
And I think I know why those relationships are about as stable as a two-legged stool. It has to do with two factors: the first being the repercussions of having to hide who you are for most of your life. Think about it if you will. Imagine having to deny a huge part of what makes you, you. It would be akin to having to hide your arms all your life.
As a result, most of these LGBTQ celebs who have finally found acceptance in their small community, those who can now date freely are exploring what it means to do just that, date freely. And unfortunately, honesty is what they are sacrificing at the altar of newfound freedom.
It’s like “starvation syndrome”. You were denied love and affection, hell, even infatuation and requited lust and now you have it albeit in a small community and it is a buffet because all the other members have experienced the same thing. So what do you think these people do? They binge. And as a result, those who are in relationships cheat.
The second reason their relationships are so unstable is that they live in total fear. As a result of constantly being in survival mode, most LGBTQ celebrities are caught up in living their dream vicariously. So what if they have a partner? That won’t stop them from enjoying life because lord alone knows what would happen if they met with the worst dredges of society (criminals) who might just harm them.
And the same group doesn’t have an older, more grounded class that can advise them on how to settle into their lives and live them peacefully. When they look for role models, all they can see are the loud, crappy examples of the likes of Kaz Lucas and her throuple. These relationships are indeed exciting but they do not last long. And when they end, things tend to get toxic.
So what you inevitably get in a lot of these celebrity LGBTQ couples, is a lack of balance that is grounded in reality and the truth that life is mundane. If you want a flashy, imbalanced relationship, sure it will be exciting but it will inevitably explode. And that is why you cannot mention a single LGBTQ relationship that was not preceded by or will itself explode in failure.
Tolerance and support of the LGBTQ movement are what your favourite celebrity is beginning to lean towards. It is the new movement to back if you’re down with Nairobi’s exclusive clique of influencers and celebrities. Simply put, if you’re down with the “it clique” then you’re down for the alphabet fight.
We have seen celebs who were previously only rumoured to be gay come out of the closet in their own way and fashion to declare their preference and leanings and we all saw them declare that 2022 is the “year of authenticity”. We then were treated to seeing our favourite influencers (the new name for socialites) and celebs alike come out to vociferously declare their support for the movement. Yay, I guess.
But this is nothing new nor is it anything but a transitory fad. Before this was mental health and before that was “femicide”. These were all the must-know buzzwords and lingo to add to your social media captions for you to seem like you were hip and with it. And just like with those bygone words, LGBTQ will find themselves used up and dumped (as a cause) without there ever having been any lasting change for the better in their lives or their cause.
What do I mean? Well, remember when every Nairobi celeb was busy running at the mouth about mental health and just how important it is for us to take care of the same? Remember when everyone was reminding each other to “unplug” and actually take care of themselves? To check up on each other and ensure you let your friends know that they are doing alright? Well, that energy quickly ran out didn’t it?
What about when every trendy influencer and celeb was exercising their Twitter fingers talking about the perceived plague that was femicide? Apparently, men everywhere were walking around in droves looking for females to “delete”. And now, it is about showing support and concern for members of the LGBTQ but unfortunately, it is all just a grift. It is a con.
And that is why people such as Anita Nderu are talking about this. It is cool for a woman to “come out” and declare their membership in the lipstick lesbian lip-lock but as soon as a man comes around showing their interest in them, these lipstick lesbians quite the lip-lock and make away like a bandit! That is why Anita Nderu courted controversy with her show that celebrated her orientation then quickly got into a relationship, engagement and eventually marriage that is heterosexual.
I mean, come on, at some point, we have to call out the charlatans because they hurt the cause. Human beings, hell, Kenyans will forgive and even tolerate you for being true to your authentic self (we might brand you as peculiar and take the occasional verbal jab at you) but we do not tolerate hypocrites.
The Anita Nderus of the movement make everything out to seem like a cheap stunt. The LGBTQ is about more than a feeling that is hip today. It is about a literal battle to live and be at peace for a lot of Kenyans -whether or not you support the cause this is true. But when the vapid “cool kid” influencers and celebs are pushing the fight, do not expect anything other than chic photo-ops and cool music videos.
Long and short of it? Amira (Jimal Roho Safi’s wife) and Michelle Ntalami need therapy before they go on to start looking for a new relationship/ attempt to torture any prospective partners because of the sins of their predecessors.
You see, they have both announced their emancipation following some rather nasty breakups from their partners that were fuelled by infidelity.
While conventional thinking would assume that whether or not they contributed to making their relationships toxic is immaterial, I am of the opinion that this is a convenient lie told to placate lazy partners. Amira and Michelle Ntalami are guilty of the type of relationship sins that would make anyone decide to forage outside the relationship.
In Amira’s case, we have to talk about her weight gain. Yes, we know she is a mother of two but the truth is, she loves cooking and subsequently, eating and as a result, her weight has ballooned. You know how people say men are visual creatures right? Well, that is a huge factor in why Jimal Roho Safi chose to stray.
What about Michelle Ntalami you ask? Well, she is not exactly a stable person. From what we have seen and heard from both her and her partners, we can probably be forgiven for thinking her a narcissist. Seriously, the way she conducts her social media page and the long, self-indulgent post she shared with the public who were not party to her private love affair with Makena Njeri yet she chose to play the part of the betrayed damsel for an unwilling audience.
Therapy will be needed for both so that they do not punish their next partners for the sins of their exes. What I mean is, for starters, that they need to seek counselling so they do not become prison wardens in said relationships.
They also need to unlearn toxic coping mechanisms that they might have been forced to learn while with their exes. In Amira’s case, she chose to pick a fight with Amber Ray. Violence is never the solution to such a problem. Also, uncontrolled weight gain is often a symptom of underlying psychological issues. And in her case, things will not get any better in the dating field unless she loses weight. Ask Anerlisa Muigai, she knows a thing or two about how weight loss opens up a whole new dating world.
Michelle Ntalami has to learn that relationships are not merely engines to live out solipsism. She needs to be shown that her perspective on life can be stifling because it’s not all just about her and how she feels.

Makena Njeri is a true testament to something one of my mentors says; most women have been with more women than most men. Let that sink in. Incase it is beyond you (maybe because you’re a knuckle dragging troglodyte) what I am trying to communicate is the fact that most women have gotten to enjoy intimacy with other women more than most Kenyan men have.
She has recently been in the media’s limelight because her alleged ex (funny word, alleged) Michelle Ntalami outed her as an unfaithful partner. What was interesting is the fact that the genius influencer knew her partner’s history but chose to ignore it -because clown world.
Makena Njeri however, is completely unbothered and has already moved on and is now reportedly even in a new relationship. She has moved on like the best of the players. Actually, even my mentor is in awe at how effortlessly she has played her hand like a pro. She genuinely does understand the intricacies of game and seduction.
At this point I need everyone to pay attention to what we are about to discuss. Why? Because you are about to learn game from one of the best lesbians to play their hand.
Makena Njeri understands that women are equally visually stimulated as men are. That is why she grooms impeccably. She is always dressed to the nines and I have no doubt she smells like a bag of money. Kenyan men need to learn from this. No woman wants to walk around with someone who is dressed like a sack of manure. regardless of how much money you think you have, no woman wants to feel embarrassed walking with her partner. You do not necessarily need to wear something with gawdy labels but dress up well.
Makena Njeri, from all accounts, is a very charming lady. You as a man need to learn to talk to people. If that means learning public speaking or learning how to brush up on your social graces, you must learn how to be charming. This also includes learning social cues. You have to learn to know when someone is open to talking and when someone is simply being polite: when someone is flirting vs when someone is merely into the topic of conversation.
Learn to go after what you like and want just as our champion lesbian does. Feel no shame announcing your interest in a lady. Wait, hold up, that only works if you have worked on yourself to be the best version of who you are. That means you dress well, have game and have been hitting the gym. If you’re a sloppy fatso, I don’t recommend you go this route unless you are a funny SOB.
Also, notice that Makena Njeri does not operate with any scarcity mentality. She is simply put, aware of the abundance of muff she can explore and she carries herself as such. She knows she can replace one attractive lady with another and is confident enough (after having enjoyed multiple women) to know that there will always be another.
Ultimately, her hidden ace is the fact that she offers the excitement of taboo. She represents a dalliance and affair that is exciting because in our Kenyan society, it is considered a “sin”. Every woman she has been with is excited to be involved in something clandestine. And while she has the advantage of the law being contrary to her proclivities, you can achieve the same level of excitement by being mysterious -or you can read that as learning how to shut the fizzak up!
It is actually laughable to think that a woman so close to her 40s is acting like a lovesick prepubescent and making her personal affairs public to the rest of us -never mind that when she was in love and things were going smoothly, she demanded privacy.
To most people, this love story is salacious because it is allegedly a lesbian love triangle. All things LGBTQ have a way of captivating Kenyans because we as a people pretend to be conservative. Also, from the chatter I have glimpsed online, there is a perverse sense of schadenfreude because a lot of men seem to feel cathartic that a lesbian has experienced infidelity -something she had claimed is prevalent in men.
Michelle Ntalami however, needs to maintain sharap about her love life. I for one do not understand why her personal life is being served up like a cheap telenovela by her. She has a private love life and it should stay that way.
Also, there is the added fact that she has opened up Makena Njeri to cyberbullying. That is something despicable to do to someone you once loved. And this is a sign of a dark soul. Why? Because she knows the statements she shared online not only bring unwanted attention to her exes life but also allow her to be targeted by disgruntled exes, bloggers and haters.
Michelle Ntalami does not realize that she has also opened her future relationships up to being dissected and placed under the microscope by the adoring public. This is a double-edged sword but given the fact she is an “influencer”, I doubt she is too bothered by this -for now. To her, the attention she is currently enjoying doubtless is exciting to her because she is getting insane interactions on social media. When will they learn?!
Michelle Ntalami has popped back on my radar and as often is the case here, her thirst traps are what has attracted me to her name and brand because she doesn’t seem to want to hustle in privacy and focus on her cosmetics and hair product line, Marini Naturals.
You see, I will be the first to admit that she is a huge outlier to a rule one of my mentors holds onto like his life depends on it that there are no attractive women past thirty years of age. But I fail to see why she uses her sexual allure to market products she has been contracted to push.
Michelle Ntalami is one of the women allied to Kenya’s very vocal and small-minded feminists who like to reduce men to criminals and champion the fact that a woman is more than her body yet she loves to act as if a woman’s only agency is her body and sexuality.
And this got me thinking back to a certain quote that had piqued my interest:
And perhaps therein lies the truth of why she often resorts to posting thirst traps whenever she has an endorsement deal: her only agency is her body. And she is smart enough to put two-and-two together and realized she can get attention from low integrity and low tier men who would gladly boost her social media interaction but I doubt this is enough to fool any digital marketer who would realize that her content often has poor quality engagement.
But wait, there’s more!
Any quasi-psychologist or student of humanity seated at the bar counter can see that these posts have precious little to do with her trying to help her clients move product. Why? Because she largely only ever gets endorsements for female products. That would negate her strategy. She is doing this for attention.
The black and white photo challenge has taken up significant attention on social media. It’s a prompt amongst friends to post a personal photo, albeit in black and white, on Instagram and other social sites, with the caption #challengeaccepted.
Did you know it has evolved globally as a sign of women’s empowerment and is a part of a campaign called “women supporting women”?
Have you been “challenged” yet?
If you are a lady haven’t yet been challenged, there are chances that you will be. All it requires is to post a black and white photo with the caption “challenge accepted” and then passing the baton to the next woman. You have participated in the women empowerment campaign.
While many social media enthusiasts may do it for fun, it’s an inconsequential and valuable addition to the cause.
The origin of the challenge remains fluid, with many cites sources. The most authentic and realistic source has been tagged to women in Turkey protesting against femicide and gender-based violence. Other sources may be unrelated but have fuelled the movement, and prominent women personalities with huge following have participated.
On an abstract level, black and white colors have often been used as truth meters and morality gauges in the society. That is easily explained by the phrase “tell it to me in black and white”.
In photography, making the choice to use black and white instead has communicated an introspective seriousness, a kind of clarity of moral and artistic intent. This is partly due to the idea that facts are black and white and color is some kind of wild, luxurious distraction.
Is there any truth in that?
Kenyan celebrities on Instagram haven’t been left behind in the empowerment drive.
Instagram tags the challenge as “meant to celebrate strength, spread love, and remind all women that supporting each other is everything.”
Just to name a few: Yvonne Okwara. Jacquie Maribe. Michelle Ntalami. Avril. Sage. Mayonde.
Wherever the origin of the challenge, it’s a big motivation for the women and a reason to support each other. It’s a ‘feel-good’, power-to-the-women feeling that sheds light to atrocities meted upon the gender mostly for being female. It also sends a precedent for future generation to fight against gender abuse.
Anita Nderu and Michelle Ntalami recently did some rather seedy plays. Anita Nderu aired a clearly homoerotic chef show and Michelle Ntalami and her girl-friend (as in female friend) shared messages to each other that were geared to leave tongues wagging.
Anita Nderu was asked to address the fact that many Kenyans found her show’s content distasteful and her message to Kenyans was:
I was told to overdress the nation, so I shall????????️????????
I am pro freedom of expression!
Most of you chose to throw me under the bus because of being pro LGBTQ????️???? I remain unapologetic ????
Do what makes you happy! You are only here for a while????
You call us a Christian state/too conservative, yet excuse lies, cheating, corruption and murder? Your hypocrisy is well noted.
P.S Even the people who introduced you to Christianity accepted it!
We have people who should be in jail yet they walk our streets but your biggest issue is how someone wants to be loved? If only you could redirect your anger!
In the past few months the whole world has been shaken to the core. Each one of us in one way or another has been adversely affected by this pandemic.
There’s been no better time to celebrate and live to the fullest. Each one of us owes it to ourselves to live, laugh and love authentically.
I as a content creator stand by this, that is why I push boundaries on the content I post simply because it’s a true expression of who I am.
As such I would like to thank Kenyans for expressing their authentic views on this matter.
That said I will not be bullied into silence, just as I respect each view I expect the same respect in return❤️????️????????
All the guests who have been on my show will tell you our one rule is be yourself, there is no script. We cook and hope for the best ???? I cannot believe I am here defending my friends for being their authentic selves. Whoever is reading this, I hope you never have to be defended for being yourself, live you! Always????
Also????????♀️ it was not an advert in any shape way or form, even we didn’t notice the brand under fire was in the video. We as usual posted as we cooked, you will see the same in all our previous The #OVERDRESSEDCOOK videos. Give them a break, thank you????
And with Michelle Ntalami, her girl-friend shared the following message:
What a sight you are and yes you got me tripping most of the time because Damn you are SEXY!
Whatever you need, I’m at your beck and call. If you need a foot rub, a back rub, someone to take you shopping and spoil you silly , or just someone to drive you around town, I’m your person. I want to make you feel like you’re a true goddess who deserves all the love I give to you ♥️.
I have experienced the most beautiful love with you Queen and it shows in every single inch of my existence . Baby you got me at hello and what a time to celebrate you darling. Happy Birthday you Sexy Queen!! @michelle.ntalami ????????
And while Kenya’s fascination with the LGBTQ is a rather peculiar one, we have to look at something else today and that is the fact that the two ladies, Anita Nderu and Michelle Ntalami are clearly playing on the LGBTQ tip. And it makes for a rather coy game indeed.
Michelle Ntalami courted the controversy along with her girl-friend Makena Njeri. Now that they are finding the questions Kenyans are asking to be a bit of a bother.
Anita Nderu, on the other hand, is having a bit of cheeky fun with Kenyans and even Ezekiel Mutua.
Why would they bother you ask? Because the notoriety it buys them cannot be bought with money. The two, Anita Nderu and Michelle Ntalami are now the talk of the town. That wouldn’t have happened if Michelle Ntalami’s girl-friend had shared their sweet friendship messages in each other’s Direct Messages.
Perish the thought because we would not have seen the messages and Kenyans wouldn’t have caused a stir and I wouldn’t have shared my opinion here.
Anita Nderu chose to share to feature in a brazen homo-erotic video featuring two men because this type of move not only increases her gangster points but also puts her firmly in our collective awareness.
Or you know, the reason for all this hullabaloo could be more straight forward… I just won’t mention it because I do not believe in courting drama.
Michelle Ntalami is having a field day on Instagram where she is on the app sharing some rather erotic photos. She is really going all out, sharing some photos that have her wearing lingerie.
It is a rather interesting case to watch the lady who is by all casual observer estimations is a successful businesswoman feeling the need to court attention by sharing risqué photos of herself. And don’t get me wrong, a lot of lads are truly grateful for the fuel for their fantasies but it is a rather odd mix don’t you think?
Michelle Ntalami runs a cosmetic company called Marini Naturals and she has been doing so for a while now, successfully navigating the pitfalls and successes that come with running a business.
So going by the independent female mantras, she should really not care for the opinions of others including the need to share photographs of herself scantily clad in sexy underwear.
So is this the case of narcissism? Especially given the whispers that surround her preference… Or perhaps she posts these photos because of her second job as an influencer and she has decided that the content she will produce is geared towards thirsty men. And she has to do to create such content is rock a skimpy outfit.
This strategy works wonders for her self esteem and allows her to get the attention her work as an influencer demands. The constant validation is a drug -or so I hear. What we do know for sure is that she is simply following a recent trend among Kenyan women that has seen the spike of thirst traps getting posted. And she is really getting into the saying that for a man to use a woman’s beauty, it is exploitation. For women to capitalize on their beauty is good business.
And that is why the idea of a highly successful woman rumoured to be in the alphabet committee who still panders for attention is celebrated as an example of modern-day duality and not cognitive dissonance.
Twitter is talking about Makena. Since yesterday, BBC producer Catherine Njeri aka Makena(from her role on Tahidi High) has been trending after her brand new Mercedes Benz was sprayed and written “cheater” after she allegedly started tossing and turning in between sheets with Marini Naturals CEO Michelle Ntalami.
Apparently, Makena has been cheating on her lover with Ntalami for some time now. Her lover lost her cool and vandalized her Mercedes Benz writing curse words and everything.
‘MAKENA CHEATER’ was written on the side of the car with black spray paint and on the bonnet, “F*CK YOU’ was pasted.
Mrs. Steal your girl
Speculation is that the two since going together to Dubai a few weeks ago, can’t just stay away from each other.
It’s not the first time Ntalami is finding herself in such a scandal. She has been also accused of “stealing” This is Ess, Edith Kimani and a few other ladies from their men.
Michelle Ntalami, Marini Natural CEO, was recently online with a lovely message for her longtime friend rapper Fena Gitu.
Fena has just turned 29 and her friend Ntalami couldn’t keep her wits together. She took to social media to share a long cute message which really shows their deep friendship.
“To this @fenamenal Queen! You have given me some of the heartiest laughters and best memories of my life! These are just but some of my faves, though 10 pictures could never do it justice, especially not on the gram! I can’t wait for you to be a global superstar, then I’ll be one of those friends who are interviewed for your Docu and I reveal all your embarrassing photos and stories! I have the world to thank you for! My favorite things about you will always be your kind heart, your pure soul, your humble personality, your selfless nature and above all your silly humor..my medicine! Thank you for your unconditional love and friendship! Storm or shine, we’re riding this life thing together until the end! I got you! Happy 29th Birthday @fenamenal, I love you always! ♥️. P.S: Fuzzy Duck? – Also, the one time we actually need a duck emoji without damn autocorrect! ”
Replying to the post, Fena, who has been topping headlines because of her sexuality, had an equally sweet message for her.
“Awww I Love you Michie!!! This means the world to me, we’ve been through it all and right back, stronger. I appreciate your love, kindness, generosity, counsel, such a sweet soul. I love you today and forever Mia Bambina. .” said Fena.
