Bridget Achieng Reveals Shocking Details on What it Takes to Make it as a Socialite in Kenya

A look into the lives of Kenyan socialites though Instagram may seem glamorous and all that, but the women are forced to do some freaky and scary things for all that money. As Bridget Achieng revealed in a recent video, nothing goes for nothing! You are asked to suck toes among other things no self respecting woman would ever do.

In a video that was posted by BBC News Africa on their  youtube channel and social media platforms, Bridget described a socialite as a woman who goes half naked to attract the rich boys in town and  to get whatever she want to get. The model talked about growing up in Kibera where life was not easy. She was molested as a kid and that ugly experience affected her until she was 25 years.
 I grew up in Kibera slums. The ghetto is about survival for the fittest... Rape is Rampant in the Ghetto. No one is coming out to talk about it but I was molested when I was a kid. It really affected me until I was 25. I just had a tough childhood.

She even worked as a house-girl where she earned 1,200 shillings. That was until a friend of hers mentioned that she had a good body and could make it big as a socialite. She took her friend's advice, became a socialite and the rest is history.
You Know when you are a socialite, your picture is all over. People are seeing a sexy girl, like a sexy, curvy girl. All these rich tycoons want to have a taste of this fine beautiful African Woman. These are big businessmen. Tycoons. You name it. They'll send you a message and tell you on the DM.  Or they can send their pimp who'll just text you like, 'Can I get your number?' And I got those a lot when I became a socialite. 

Things got a little weird though when she went into details as to what it is expected of a socialite.
You are a desperate girl looking for money and you are getting a guy wanting to give you $10,000 just to go visit him wherever in Dubai or wherever and he's willing to dash you $10,000. $10,000 - some people have never seen $10,000 in their life. You just need to look pretty and get $10,000 and be on the flight and go and do what you have to do. 

I always feel like it has to be something that is in you because it's crazy things that you're asked to do. You're told to suck toes, to do what... it's crazy. You can suck... I don't want to go deep. I don't want to go into details about that because it freaks me out. I don't wanna scare people.

She had some advice for the young girls aspiring to be socialites.
But the young girls need to know there is nothing for nothing. You want a million bucks, you will do something that is worth a million bucks. You want $5,000, you're going to do something that is worth $5,000. It's something I tried when I was in my desperate moment. I had to do it to just get back up. It's not something any woman should be proud of doing.
Bridget now has an orphanage with 30 kids in Kibera.
