Fat shaming is a bad vice that should not be entertained but that has not stopped some Kenyans from body shaming celebrities whenever they get a chance.
Bad as it is some of these celebs have chosen to let the trolls know that they cannot put them down.
Radio queen Linda Nyangweso has been a victim of body shaming but that has not dampened her spirit.
It all started when her Kiss Drive co-host Jeff Mote shared a photo of the two in studio and fans could not mince their words on how fat Lynda has grown.
One of the fans going by the name Katrinakaz dropped her comment asking the radio queen to find time for the gym while one Kelly Shan made a comment on how fat she keeps growing each time.
This led to a series of comments from other fans on the same issue which in a way did not go down well with the Kiss Drive host, as some encouraged her to be as she sees okay for herself and not mind what is said.
Lynda Nyangweso who could not hold it down responded to the request of her fans in a sarcastic way, claiming that they had opened her eyes over the same and thanked them for helping her come out of denial.
“@kelly_shan2820 you and @katrinakaz have saved me thank you, I was about to drink my glass of wine, live my best life, mind my own damn business, grow my edges and let my skin glow but you two have shown me the light, or the fat, I hadn’t noticed it. i was in denial. Thank you. #unsungheroes #worldssmallestviolin #fatshamingforabetterworld,” read her response.
Daughter to Keroche industries boss has had her fair share of fat shaming, In December 2018 she shared her progress photos and that set the ground for her trolls.
She posted four pictures and captioned it ‘New month, new beginnings’.
A section of fans commented on Anerlisa’s post suggesting that she had put on some weight. Some went on to fat shame her on the comment section.
Anerlisa reacted by cautioning her critics that she get hurt whenever people call her fat. She further stressed that she would not tolerate any negativity on her Instagram account.
“You should be very careful what you say to others. I do not appreciate when people comment on my picture calling me fat and all sorts of words to do with body size.I am human and i get hurt like everyone else. I am very open with you all on my page but some sort of respect to would be appreciated. #PositiveVibesOnly,” wrote Anerlisa.
He is a father to an adorable daughter. In one of his captions he says
“Loyalty is a gift that a lot of people don’t have,if there is something that I have learnt from this gal is unconditional love. Loving someone even when they don’t deserve, thank you fancyface,nakupenda.”
As the world marks World breastfeeding week local DJ Pierra Makena is in a dilemma on how to stop her daughter from breastfeeding.
Everything in life has a stage and when a child is born it reaches a point where they have to stop breastfeeding but Makena’s daughter is not ready to.
Pierra took to social media to celebrate World breastfeeding week and also give us a hint on what plan she has come up with to ensure her daughter gets off breastfeeding.

It is not every day that bosses take time to thank their nannies cum house managers for the great work they do but Pierra Makena does.
Well female spin master Pierra Makena is one of their few who are not shy to show off their house managers .
She took to her Instgram to celebrate both her daughter and as she turned two and her house manager as she turned 22.
The sweet messages have left our hearts melting especially after Pierra gushed on her daughter stating how much her daughter has made her love.

Pierra Makena may pass for a woman who has made it in life for the great name she had created for herself as a spin master in a field largely dominated by men.
It is easy to think that a woman of her calibre and class does not know what it is to struggle despite the fact that she is a single mother, yet that is where you are wrong.
The mother of one has seen it all not knowing what to feed her child, where she will lay her head or even emotional trauma after the father of her girl abandoned her. But God has seen her through and she can now talk about it.
She took to her Instagram page to share her sad experience
“On this date 2016….. a day before i gave birth to my little princess…I was going through the hardest time of my life..yet I went through it with a smile. I did not know where to start..what my child will eat..where I will take her..I did not have enough resources..I did not have a job and my savings had run out… my family and very close friends were great support otherwise I would have died of depression. I always imagined giving birth and having the father of my unborn child holding my hand and helping even if it is with a diaper…but I was alone…with many questions and fear…I honestly was a little below rock bottom.. I remember I sat in my car and I played and replayed MWEMA by @mercymasikamuguro”
” I cried so many times to God and prayed so many different prayers coz I didn’t know what would be good for me anymore… I remember looking up and telling God please..please Be the father to my unborn child……. i don’t ever want to be like this again…. and in my car in the house I just replayed the song like 100 times…the following day I went to The hub…. just to walk around and yes all the time either my sister my mom my bros or my friend would be around coz they knew I needed the support though I didn’t ask….I walked so much….and guess what!!!! My water broke😳😳😳😳😵😵😝😝😝……. #thanks to anyone who stood up for me and shared my tears. Lets enjoy the smiles….”
Being the motivational woman she is, Makena’s fans took the chance to give her some encouragement for overcoming that tough period of her life. Here are some of the comments

God is mercy and gracious.
Cyber bullying is on the rise and more local celebrities are becoming victims of these acts perpetuated by unknown people.
The impact of cyber bullying is massive, with victims sometimes committing suicide. From Larry Madowo to Victoria Rubadiri, here is a list of 10 Kenyan celebrities who have not been spared from trollying by social media bullies.
1. Pierra Makena
The beautiful damsel has been on the receiving end of trolls due to her weight gain after the birth of her daughter. She has spoken out about it, admitting that a woman’s body goes through a lot of transformation after child bearing and it only takes a courageous woman to accept the changes.
Pierra indicated she would only lose the weight when she felt the time is right and her daughter is big enough.
2. Carol Odero
Citizen TV’S fashion watch analyst Carol Odero came under a lot of criticism a few weeks ago after criticizing Meghan Markle’s dress and make up saying it came short of her expectations.
Kenyans who would hear none of it trolled her telling her that her make up and code of dressing is what needed an upgrade given that she wears alot of make up, with most questioning if she has something to hide.
3. Size 8
Mama Wambo has also not been spared by trolls and on countless occassions. Her performance during a recent public holiday did not please many who termed it ‘poor’.
She has also been dragged for makeup gone wrong.
The soft spoken beauty has not been spared. During a New Years performance in Nakuru, she snatched a microphone from her colleague and the internet went in on her.
On different occasions cyber bullies have attacked her for not bearing a child, Kambua responded to her haters that it is not good to judge some one since you do not know what they are going through.
5. Cathy Kiuna
‘Mum’ as she is fondly known by her followers has not been spared from cyber bullying. Most noteably was when it was alleged she told girls not to marry poor men.
6. Nyota Ndogo
‘Kuna Watu Na Viatu ‘ songstress has been under attack for her poor make up during her wedding. the photos went viral and she blamed her photographer for using poor lighting.
Nyota always responds to trolls.
8. Dk Kwenye Beat
The Kayole talent has come under heavy criticism for his weight. Meme’s and jokes were made to get the message to him.
Even though Dk has not lost his weight, we sure hope he does at some point.
9. Jimmy Gait
Gospel artiste Jimmy came under the harsh attack of cyber bullies after releasing a mash up of ‘Hello’ by Adelle, which left many Kenyans with more questions than answers.
The bullying caused him to cry on air during a live Tv interview on the The Trend. Since that episode he says things have never really been the same.
10. Khaligraph Jones
He came under attack for people saying that he had ‘bleached’ his skin something he refuted completely.
Pierra Makena has been engaged in many fights this year. From her back and forth with Mishi Dorah to her weight gain.
Let us not forget that the DJ gave birth to a baby in 2016 and most likely would have gained some baby fat. She gained so much weight that her doctor advised her to lose some of it for her own sake.
Mishi Dorah was not one to mince words as she spoke some unflattering words about Pierra’s body. Her Instagram post was later deleted but all the criticism must have had an effect on her as she proclaimed that she would diligently hit the gym.
Yesterday she decided to release some photos showing off her new and improved body. The snaps seen by Mpasho.co.ke were published on her Instagram account on Sunday, May 27.
The pictures show Pierra in figure-hugging gym-wear that shows that she has lost weight. Me, I don’t see it. With figure shapers dominating the market and men being lied to constantly, I think this may be a figure-shaper.
Yes, I am being cynical but for one to realistically see some weight loss one has to show a before and after in nearly similar attire. This is to avoid the impression of angles, colours or types of clothes that may flatter the body.
My argument is pretty simple. I think she may be wearing shape-wear. The style is called mid-waist shorts. This style goes from about mid waist to the upper thighs, butt and lower abdominals. It will help to hug everything in. This style works well with not only dresses, but hip-hugging style pants as well.
Pierra Makena is one of the few Kenyan female Dj’s who is well-known and has a following. The curvy Dj has been secretive about her age, making sure that suspicion and speculation is all there is when it comes to what her age is. But not anymore.
It’s rare to find a celebrity who can tell their real age, especially on this continent. From footballers to socialites, most of them never age and are always sweet 18, 20 0r 24. Bodacious DJ Pierra Makena has revealed her age and Kenyans are shocked.
The former Tahidi High actor and mother of one just clocked 37 years old. Yes! Pierra Makena is 37 but wait, she doesn’t look like her real age.
“About to rock this 37!!!!!👸😋 Happy bornday indeed #BEYOU,” read the heavily endowed DJ’s message.
Well, Celina, a fellow actor also wished Pierra Makena a happy birthday and also had a message to body shamers.
Check out comments from Makena’s followers
Matamumusic: 37 looks good on you mama… Happy Happy birthday to you, God will enlarge your boundaries

Local gospel decks master Samuel Muraya popularly known as DJ Mo has been the topic of discussion on social media after he recently confessed that he took his wife Size 8 through five tests before marrying her.
This did not go well for DJ Mo as netizens trolled him on Twitter. Two days ago, DJ Mo was the guest on the Let’s Talk show which is hosted by four amazing women among them Pierre Makena where he talked about his family and life.
Many expected Pierra and the rest to ask DJ Mo about the former Tahidi High’s actor’s daughter but they didn’t.
After the show, DJ Mo took photos with the crew and Pierra Makena posted a photo posing with Size 8’s husband that elicited mixed reactions.
Ellah: I can’t see where Pierra asked if her princess looks like DJ Mo
Flossinauwano: Kabisa I always waited for this
Vickie:You two look good together haki
Katemtem: Hmmmm sips changaa huyo mtoto wa Pierra yuafanana DJ Mo sio?
Mohammed: I wish he was married to you, you match perfectly😜👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
Osoro: You resemble each other
Celester: Love you guys😍😍
Recently, Pierra asked by a fan if DJ Mo was the father of her daughter Ricca because she bears a freakish resemblance to Ladasha and she responded;
“SIZE 8 AND DJ MO ☝☝☝☝ PLEASE COME FOR YOUR OTHER DAUGHTER?” PIERRA CAPTIONED THE PHOTO BELOW.
After giving birth, Pierra has embraced motherhood and despite being a first-time mother in this amazing phase of life, she has remained steadfast and a doting mother to her cuddly baby girl.
Pierra Makena has however not revealed who the father of the toddler is, but months before giving birth, she confessed that she had parted ways with her baby daddy after she found out that he was engaged, but are cordial and co-parenting with no issues.
The father to the young one is said to be a wealthy businessman and well known public figure, who’s now married to another woman, but that has not slowed down the beautiful disc jockey.
Pierra is celebrating her daughter’s first birthday and as the little angel turns one year old, the singer can’t help and gush about it. She shared a cute photo of baby Ricca with this sweet caption;
Quietly help me wish my little Angel a happy birthday. … Ricca turns 1. I am such a happy mother you have no idea.
Before that, Pierra had shared photos when the baby was born, with this loving post about her experience;
24hrs of labour. ..last year at this time in was going through sooooooo much pain wah!!!!! I got induced and the pain got worse. ….and Minutes later I pushed a bouncing baby girl. ..the pain was gone… God is great! !!!!! And now. a year later I can’t express how happy and excited I am to celebrate her 1st birthday. .. just the other day uh?
She went on to reveal the joy of being a mum; “1 year later and I have a beautiful healthy baby girl. ….. I wanna cry I wanna jump I wanna scream but most of all I wanna hold my baby and pray!”
While talking about her, Pierra revealed that she’s never talked about it in any interview, but Caroline was the one who motivated her into taking that path seriously.
She said, “When I decided to become a DJ, it was because of Caroline Mutoko, she had a lot to do with it. When I deejayed the first time ever and there was a rumour that Pierra is a DJ, Caroline picked up her phone and called me. She was like “This is Caroline Mutoko” and I thought that it’s a lie. Then I realised this chic is actually serious. Then she’s like “I’d like to meet you for lunch and you have what it takes because it’s different and you should go for it. I’d love to see you on TV and radio”. After that I put on my gear and moved.”
