The beautiful singer has managed to maintain her beautiful curves even with her tremendous weight loss. She is proof that one does not have to be skinny to be beautiful. She’s got beauty and brains. Kubarikiwa nayo.

In a recent instagram post, she shared how she has battled with being over weight for long.

Long. Truthful. Post.
“This is both a very scary thing to do and something that is giving me so much pride today. I achieved something I had never thought possible and I’m proud of myself for it. For years, my weight was a genuine cause of pain – something I never openly discussed, maybe because of fear of insult, maybe because it was truly something that I thought I would never be able to overcome. Maybe because I was truly embarrassed and ashamed to be so heavy. I tried and failed, used horrible “quick-result” methods of weight loss that never stuck. I broke myself down in my mind and could not see myself as anything other than a “fat girl”.”

She adds

“I destroyed my own self esteem. But in 2016 I made the decision that I would stop punishing myself and I would give myself permission to take my weight-loss into my own hands and find something I can commit to. And here we are! 16kgs (and a few to go), and a whole lot of self esteem later, I am happy, and I am proud. The entire video explaining my journey to health is in the link in my bio. I would love it if you would watch it and we can compare notes and discuss our experiences. Then subscribe to my brand new YouTube channel(!!!!) and let’s find a sustainable way to health together! (Side Note: I was VERY shocked when I saw a TBT of the old picture on the internet. I immediately went to find that dress, wore it, and had to hold it taut behind me for it to look normal. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so proud of myself, and that green dress represents a lot for me now) 
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Nothing is for everybody. This was for me, and I would love to create a platform where we can all know that beauty is DEFINITELY not skin deep! It took me chasing a healthy lifestyle to truly learn that♥♥♥ And I would like to wish myself a happy birthday and pat myself on the back. Because I did a good thing for myself.”

‘I think back to how unhappy I was,’ croons Maureen Kunga on weight loss journey

Singer Maureen Kunga of the famous trio, Elani, is embracing the new self after her weight loss journey, citing that she is happier and feels more beautiful.

The beautiful songbird has always addressed the insecurities she has had with her body and the measures she took to change it instead of wallowing in self-pity

However, she says that she stopped pitying herself and in 2016, she started the journey to weight loss.

She took to her social media sharing a self-love post that said,

Sometimes I look at this grainy photo and it really shocks me 😊 Not because it’s such an “amazing transformation” and “inspirational story”. But because I think back to that girl on the left and remember how unhappy she was sometimes.

61625198_138748757213127_7501060489952521455_n (1)

Maureen opened up on her struggle with weight loss on various occasions and how it impacted her self esteem but is finally learning to accept herself throughout the whole process.

She has in the past spoken about how she had tried different methods and regimes that she thought would help her lose weight faster but did not work.

The Kookoo hitmaker also continues to say,

Unhappy, not because she was overweight, but because she had allowed her weight to define her. I could not see myself as the talented, beautiful, intelligent, funny, strong, wonderful human being I am because my weight had become the one thing that I saw.

The crazy and bizarre traditions associated with Kenyans

Don’t get me wrong, I had good days, but most of my time was spent obsessing and struggling and talking down to myself.

44775917_305290090107394_6360237006476844836_n

I am not a skinny person, nor do I ever really expect to be – I’ve actually put on a little weight from the photo on the right 😂 I mess up and I do unhealthy things sometimes, but I feel beautiful, and a million times happier.

I am free of so much baggage! I’m headed in the right direction. And life is more than a number on a scale. #BeFree#BeYourself #BeAwesome! #OwnYourCrown

‘High School Crush Motivated Me To Start Singing’ Singer Wambui Ngugi Admits

Wambui Ngugi is a member of Elani which is among the best bands in Kenya, the trio band also compromises of Brian Cheya and Maureen Kunga.

The trio came into the limelight for the debut album Jana Usiku and since then they have been gracing our screens with their melodious voices.

Wambui is both beauty and brains. She is not only gifted with good vocals but with good looks that would drive any man crazy.

13381213_289245911414810_446039313_n

During an interview with Daily Nation Wambui opened up on her singing career, she started singing by default after going for an audition because of her crush.

She said; “All along I used to be an admirer of singers because my sister had once told me I wasn’t gifted with the singing talent. I couldn’t sing, not until I met this two, who used to sing from way back in high school.”

She continues; “When I met them (Brian and Maureen) for the first time, just before I enrolled at a university, there were auditions for a (singing) competition called Spotlight Kenya going down at the Alliance Francaise.

elani-kenya(1)

Spotlight Kenya would audition singers, produce and package an album for them and then take the groups for musical tours in Europe. The idea of touring Europe made my heart skip a beat, but I knew I couldn’t sing.”

Due to earlier discouragements, Wambui had no plans of going for auditions but she went anyway.

She adds; “It just happened that I had tagged along with my friends who were preparing for the auditions. There was a voice teacher taking them through a song for audition purposes. After teaching the song, he asked us to sing, mistakenly thinking I was also part of the group. He started by pointing me out, asking me to sing what he had just taught.

I was shocked, because he didn’t know why I was there and that I couldn’t sing. When I saw he was getting agitated that I wasn’t responding, I went for it, and to my surprise, everyone loved it”

On being asked why she went for the auditions if she had no interest in singing she says; “Honestly, that wasn’t the reason I went to the auditions with Brian and Maureen. The truth is, I was there because Brian had a close friend, Patrick, whom I had a crush on. We had met before (in high school drama festivals). He is the one who had actually invited me. Clearly, my agenda there was a side agenda. But it happened that I also sang and everyone loved it and kept encouraging me to keep going. It’s at that point that I started singing.”

So ladies don’t ignore your crushes, they might be the key to your future career.

More local female celebrities among them female rapper STL, and Olive Karmen show us how to gracefully rock short hair.

4.  Dread locks

naz-660x660

Long gone are the days where people with dread locks were looked down upon. Dread locks have been accepted even at the work place. They are uni-sex and are now rocked by both men and women. Unlike braiding, dreadlocks require very little maintenance and is pocket friendly since you do not have to  go to the salon often.

5. Corn rows

thatdynamitechick

 

If you haven’t had these then you are missing out. Corn rows are the next big thing as the braids tsunami takes over Kenya. They are famous among the youth, and are easy to fix and can be worn both in official and casual setting. They are a saving grace to many women.

6.  Box Braids

8bda325f7811326675c34398ad21b595

Out with the old and in with the new. Long gone are the days where one had to painfully stick to a uniform way of making braids, all thanks to box braids. Box braids is the latest trend in spicing up your hair.

7.  Lace weaves

Wanna spice up your weave? Lace weave is the way to go. This weave is made to suit the young and the old depending on ones personal taste. The good thing is that the weave comes in different colours and frontal lace sizes (long /short).

If you are planning on visiting a salon maybe you should consider this hair style because it won’t disappoint.
