Journalist Alberto Amenya has told members of the public who have a tendency to put Kenyan celebrities on a pedestal.
According to him, such people idolise the celebrities and camp on their timelines waiting for those who criticise them so that they can accuse them of jealousy.
He remembered a time comedian Eric Omondi boasted of owning a KSh 167 million mansion in Karen and many slammed him for rubbishing the claims.
The more than 250 reactions were from people asking him to stop the jealousy and work hard to achieve the same.

“A few weeks later, Eric was busted and it was discovered that the house was not Eric’s. I expected those traducers to look for me and apologise but I never saw even one,” he wrote.

Amenya says he used the above example to inform people that most of the people calling themselves celebrities are seriously struggling in their real lives.
The content creator claimed that they display fake Hollywood lifestyles but in reality, they are so poor some don’t even know where their next meal will come from.
He advised fans to stop being intimidated by the monies they flash on social media and start thinking it is them who are not working hard enough.
Amenya adds that celebrities display borrowed or hired expensive cars and mansions worth millions and broadcast it but when an illness of KSh 20,000 knocks, they grab a begging bowl and start panhandling on social media.
“Sasa unashangaa hii jamaa ako na KSh 200 million na anaomba achangiwe KSh 50,000,” he said sarcastically.

He attributes this to Kenyans being gullible and not thinking straight especially when one sells them hope as long as it is packaged well.

That, he concludes, is the reason many people in Kenya have become millionaires through con games.
In one of such displays of wealth, comedian Nasra Yussuf shared a receipt on social media showing she had paid a bill of KSh 59,200 for breakfast.
However, it emerged that the same receipt was posted in 2021 by socialite Vera Sidika, only that Nasra had blurred out some of the elements from the original picture.
