Keroche Breweries heiress and the Chief Executive Officer of Nero Water Anerlisa Muigai criticised YouTuber-turned-rapper, Diana Marua Bahati (Diana B) over a past video where she confessed to previously dating several men for money.

Muigai, who is the daughter of Nakuru Senator, Tabitha Karanja, had on Thursday, November 17 responded to an Instagram post by a local gossip blog which captured her response shared on Instagram on the same day to the video released in October 2020 which saw her heavily trolled on Twitter for the better part of the day.

The Nakulombotov hitmaker at the time took a trip down memory lane to her confession that she had previously dated men for money to fund her luxurious lifestyle.

“I used to date men for money at some point in my life because I lacked the whole of my life to a point where all I wanted was a good life, all I wanted was to live well. I dated guys for money and I had one who paid my rent, another did my house shopping and I had someone to buy me clothes and another to take me out,” she said.

Responding to the confession, however, Muigai questioned Marua's decision to air out her dirty linen when she had already matured from her rampant antics in her early 20s, warning that her submission would prompt men to consider body count when looking for a woman as a potential suitor.

She said that the rapper was being inconsiderate by unleashing her private details to the public and warned that she would be fiercely judged even if her words had carried a lesson to her followers.

“Nothing against Diana, I am one of the people who admire her as a mum but why the need to come out now? Sad truth is that people will go straight to body count,” she said.

“My point of view is that I think after being a mother and having a man who has accepted you for all your flaws, this kind of information should be kept private. Your past can sometimes get people viewing you differently even if it’s to help people and if you really want to tell a story, use ‘a friend’ as reference, the message will be heard,” advised Anerlisa.

Marua in a long Instagram post noted that she felt the urge to speak up for the women and girls that look up to her.

She expressed her surprise at seeing a video that highlighted her flings with men in her 20s going viral on Twitter, more than two years since she shared it on her YouTube channel.

"Dear Girl Child. I thought I should write something to speak to many Women and girls who follow me and look up to me. Girls that have dreams but don't know where to start but despite hardships, they still know what they want to become in Life. 

"I was just scrolling and checking to see what's popping on social media and I was surprised I am top trending on Twitter because of a video I posted years ago as I Dedicated to God a Mercedes Benz gift I had received from my Husband. It's still funny that some KOTs are watching this today (anyway Glory to God it means Team Diana subscribers and Numbers are Growing)," she wrote in part.

She clarified that the reason she chose to open up on her past is so that she could inspire women of her generation and strongly believed that true role models tell both sides of the story

"Matthew 5:14 is one of my favourite Scriptures and it reminds me that "a City on a hill cannot be hidden" The video link is still on YouTube; Watch and share with fellow women and girls with dreams of starting up their own Families some day, women who desire to accomplish their God- Given purpose. Let them know that's very possible," she added.

Marua further elaborated that she filmed her confession despite the criticism and media coverage about her that would follow as a result as a testimony that whatever a woman wishes for can come true.

She further urged young women not to give up on their dreams amidst criticism from society.
