Nairobi’s finest influencers and celebrities attended the dazzling evening invite-only event, dressed to the nines. The room was buzzing with excitement as Kenya joined the exclusive club of the brand’s other eight African countries where it now officially retails.
Kenya’s top influencers, media personalities, celebrities, makeup artists, screen sirens, and Instagram heavyweights descended on the Social House to celebrate famed Bajan singer Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty soft launch, which was studded with all things beautiful, exquisite, lush, and posh.
At 7 p.m., the celebs began to arrive, and the red carpet was a whirl of activity, with cameras flashing, bodies popping, and champagne flowing.
Janet Mbugua, Makena Njeri, Kendi Christine, Noni Muchiri, and Annette Gitau were among the many celebrities who attended the celebration, which continued until far past midnight.
Eugene Mbugua, a reality and documentary TV producer, as well as Crazy Kennar and Esther Kazungu, makers of internet entertainment, were among the other famous personalities.
Suzie Wokabi, a Kenyan beauty legend, and a slew of Instagram stars including Stephu Mulinge, Maureen Bandari, Yasmeen Saiedi, Joy Kendi, Shiksha Arora, and Lornzie Gatabaki were among the flashy audience.
The event, which included beautiful Fenty Beauty packages for all attendees, was also graced by seductive singer Nikita Kering, who put on a sizzling show as the guests fawned over her.
Nikita laid down a strong performance, topping it off with her huge single ‘Ex,’ dressed in a short newspaper-themed outfit and black designer thigh-high boots.
Fena Gitu and Kagwe Mungai, both musicians, attended the star-studded beauty pageant.
The gathering, known as the “Fenty Club,” was held to “celebrate the introduction of Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin in Kenya.”
The Social House meeting was also a totally private affair that would not be published on social media and would only be open to those who had been invited.
On Friday night, Fenty Beauty will formally launch in Kenya and Africa as a whole with yet another glittering, all-star event at the Junction Mall.
Dr. Joyce Gikunda, founder of Lintons Beauty, also made an appearance and gave a lecture, dressed in an opulent Gele (Nigerian-style headwrap) and a flowing dark blue dress.
Lintons Beauty is Kenya’s official and only Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin retailer.
