Bridget Achieng should stop playing the blonde socialite trope

Bridget Achieng was one of the more ratchet of the Nairobi Diaries cast members. And that is saying a lot because the show got to the zenith of its popularity by having a cast of blonde and ratchet socialites.

Bridget Achieng speaks about her alleged club fight with small sister, Catherine Atieno

It never really made sense to me why she would insist on playing this trope because she seems smarter than we give her credit for being. Yes, you read that right, Bridget Achieng is actually much smarter than you think she is.

Understandably, because of her upbringing and cultural exposure or lack thereof, there are some topics that she cannot relate to but Bridget Achieng actually is smart enough to lift herself from abject poverty to being a recognizable brand and personality.

Bridget Achieng started off as a house help. that is how she began her later teenage/ early adulthood. She worked as a mboch in Kibera mind you so how’s that for context?

And from there, she ended up owning and operating a stall which was actually doing well in the early and mid-tens (2010s) and we were first introduced to her when Pendo was accused of stealing from her and she dealt with Pendo savagely. After that beating, a few years passed on and we were once more introduced to Bridget Achieng on Nairobi Diaries.

¨I have kept aside all evidence for my son about his dad, when he grows up – Bridget Achieng confesses

And even looking through her social media account, you can see that she isn’t a dumb lass. She routinely hires out her services for promotional work on her page. Aside from that, she is constantly marketing the wares she imports and sells which is more than what a lot of her contemporaries use their pages for.

And perhaps, it can also be argued that she is smart enough to have read the situation and realized that the only way she would have an extended run on the show Nairobi Diaries was for her to dumb it down and play the stereotypical buxom bimbo.

“Weh ulienda wera ukafunga!” Pendo shades Bridget Achieng after getting pregnant for her Nigerian ‘client’

Nairobi Diaries is back and so is the drama and gossip that will definitely keep many busy especially those who enjoy show.

At the moment we understand that former friends, Pendo and Bridget no longer see eye to eye. This is apparently after Pendo allegedly had an affair with Bridget Achieng’s baby daddy!

However Pendo has denied the story saying she is not the kind of person to sleep people’s men and in fact she no longer dates light skinned men (ouch!).

Bridget Achieng got pregnant for her client?

Thanks to a short clip shared on the Nairobi Diaries Pendo is heard saying that Ms Achieng got pregnant while she was at ‘wera’ (work).

Not quite sure why Pendo said this but it’s evident that the lass was hinting that Bridget Achieng’s baby daddy was only looking for a good time but ended up impregnating the lass who now has a baby boy.

With this out, a few close sources to both Pendo and Bridget Achieng also seem to be looking for an opportunity – where they will reveal who Bridget’s baby daddy was to her before the pregnancy.

Nairobi Diaries Glam Pam’s deep cleavage lands Larry Madowo and other BBC bosses in trouble

Senior BBC editors are currently getting a lot of heat from the public after blurring the cleavage of a Kenyan socialite who appeared on a recent documentary shot in Nairobi.

Just like the first documentary from the media house that attracted numerous complaints from Kenyans after socialite Bridget Achieng accused the media house of portraying her as a prostitute, this one also had controversies of it’s own.

The Guardian on Sunday reported that senior staff at the British media house were divided on the decision to censor socialite Glamour Pam’s cleavage in the documentary dubbed  Fake Me: Living for Likes.

The decision to deal with Pam’s cleavage was made at senior editorial level at BBC Africa,” the Guardian reported.


BBC’s spokesman later explained that the blurring was done to comply with some of the strict watershed regulations in some African countries.

“#thesheword is broadcast via a number of BBC partner stations in Africa which are subject to watershed rules similar to the UK’s. As the majority of our partner stations show the programme pre-watershed, we ensured the film was suitable for broadcast in those markets.” he said.

Pendo responds after Mishi accused her of aborting the child she was expecting with Dennis Oliech

Nairobi Diaries might not be the type of reality Tv most people would sit down to watch since many find it average but truth be told, it is a show that has good rates and at the end of the day we get to hear some of the top kept secrets about our socialites.

From the last episode aired this week, Mishi Dora who is part of the cast happened to reveal that Pendo aborted Dennis Oliech’s baby – shocking many who had no idea about this.

The socialite went on to say that as much as people have branded her a liar, she has information that would destroy these ladies.

Well Pendo has responded to this allegations hoping to set the record straight. She said;

“Why would you have to mention Dennis Oliech on this thing? Ati nilitoa mimba ya Dennis Oliech? Come on I’m not like you, I don’t just get pregnant here and there and I don’t remove my wraps, I love condoms, ukimwi unaua nilifunzwa”

We are however not sure who is telling the truth since the two seemed close a while back and could have shared secrets. But we can clearly see Pendo denying this.

Also, Mishi happened to mention that the house Brian is claiming to build for his fiancé (Risper Faith) endoactually belongs to his mum and will be a family house meaning all of them will be living under the same roof. But Brian is yet to respond.
