I don’t know about you but when I go down my Instagram (from henceforth referred to as IG) timeline, I come across a lot of thirst traps from Kenyan celebs and normal Kenyan women aswell.
And if it isn’t going down on their own IG accounts, then it does when they go live with either Xtiandela or Vera Sidika.
So why have we been seeing this of late? The answer is pretty simple really. With the self-quarantine, Kenyans aren’t interacting with each other. That means Kenyan women who are accustomed to being hit on and validated on these Kenyan streets are no longer getting hit on.
So what is Caro to do? What are Fei and Nyambura to do? Rather than accept the lack of validation, they have simply adapted and begun seeking attention online. And it is a rather smart way to do it. All you need are bundles and away you go, participating in twerk contests and getting realtime thirsty simps to harp on about how sexy you are. That is why Zari undertook her pillow challenge and why Vera has begun thirst baiting, promising to twerk on her IG live if she gets to her Mpesa donation mark.
Indeed, Kenyan female celebrities are at the forefront of this new thottery. And as they do so, they are extra careful to ensure they share the stats of their IG live interactions and engagements. The simps are sated as are Kenyan women.
On this one, however, I guess it simply is a case of life adapting to the digital landscape. Just because Kenyan women cannot be validated in the streets doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be validated virtually. Then again, this is the same lass who will announce to the world two weeks after her life is back to normal with an end being called to self-quarantine, that she is more than her body…
