Kenyans have many beautiful female celebrities in the entertainment industry, politics and even sports,They are a representation of Kenya’s population.
This kills the stereotype that Kenya does not produce gorgeous women.
The attractive women in this list are the ones I believe would provide stunning babies if a man was to have children with them.
For the sake of argument, the list looks at two categories which we can look to distinguish for healthy and attractive children. Their facial symmetry (beauty) and physical properties (big posteriors).
The women who meet these specifications are below:
The celebrated host works on Citizen’s TV’s 10 over 10 and has become a fan favourite because of her wonderful chemistry with Willis Raburu.
The lawyer turned socialite is now dating an Italian man. She also has one of the most curvaceous bodies out there. A true figure 8.
The socialite is rumoured to be seeing Statehouse operative and Mr. moneybags Jomo Gecaga. And why wouldn’t he? She is a pleasure to look at.
Even eligible bachelor Otile Brown was infatuated with this woman! And while I may not like the heavily synthetic Vera of today, she once had the stereotypical body that was curvy and not fat. Yes, a delicate balance that many try and fail at.
This is Corazon’s younger sister and she seems to be following in the same vein as her sister, that of being a socialite. The lady has been blessed with some delicious curves like her sister and she also has the ambition to succeed. Where is her Italian man?
The darker the berry the sweeter the juice is a phrase that best encapsulates the first African woman to win an Oscar. She did so by playing the role of a slave. In the movie, you couldn’t tell that a pretty woman lay underneath all the scars and tears but there was one.
The radio presenter started out as with the musical group called SEMA and has since flourished and branched out onto a somewhat successful solo career.
The socialite who started out on Big Brother is now an established “boss woman” and is still as beautiful to look at as she was when in her early twenties.
Everyone has their opinions but mine are always right!

Lupita Nyong’o has apologised for offending members of the disabled community with the voice she used as the terrifying doppelgänger Red in Jordan Peele’s Us.
The actress, 36, was responding to backlash from disability groups, who criticised her for crediting Spasmodic Dysphonia as an inspiration for the strained way she spoke as the character.
Discussing how she came up with her character’s speech while on The View on Thursday, the Black Panther star explained: ‘The voice of Red was a composite of influences and definitely a creation of my imagination.
‘But I was inspired by a condition called Spasmodic Dysphonia, which is a neurological disorder, which can be triggered by physical and emotional trauma.
‘In my processes as an actor, one of the things I look to do is to find ways into the most human and most real parts of the camera, and to steer clear of a judgement of them as good or evil, pleasant or creepy.’
She said factors like the way Robert F Kennedy Jr speaks, as well as her research on ‘laryngeal fractures, and vocal cord haemorrhages and [her] own experience with vocal injury’ shaped the way she spoke as Red.
Adding that she also met with people who have Spasmodic Dysphonia, she said that she ‘thought by speaking up about it, and mentioning it, it might have helped shed light on the condition.’
Lupita continued: ‘I understand that it’s a very marginal group of people who suffer from this, and so the thought that I would in a way offend them was not my intention.
‘In my mind, I wasn’t interested in vilifying or demonising the condition. I crafted Red with love and care. So as much as it is in a very genre-specific world, I really wanted to ground her in something that felt real.’
The Oscar-winning actress then apologised, as she concluded: ‘So for all of that, I say sorry to anyone that I may have offended.’
