When you think of masculinity, which celebrities come to mind? It was a question I had asked a few friends as we sat down to have some rather interesting conversations. The truth is that many Kenyan celebrities are nothing more than simps. They are weak men you can’t trust, you know you would even want them in your corner if you were ever in a rush.

So you can imagine how difficult it was for us to find celebrities whose masculinity was respect but also who we believe have proven to be as steady as a rock when it comes to supporting their friends and their family. No, these are not celebrities who have not had scandals and are considered prominent members of society. It’s because a lot of celebrities who think your girlfriend are good men, I’m just locating Will Smiths.
And by that I mean they’re too scared to rock the boat so they try to talk about what’s considered acceptable out of the Overton window and not say an opinion that’s considered controversial even though that could really be what they think or feel about a topic.
Andrew Kibe is right to cheat celebrities
We narrow the list down to about five celebrities that we think any Kenyan man would do well to emulate. This is because they are not only stoic but they are loyal and have the cojones to stun their opinions and thoughts and defend them and if they are wrong they have no problem apologizing and change to accommodate new evidence. These five Kenyan celebrities are:
We talked a lot about him. He is an example of a man who tried and failed and tried again and although he encountered many failures in life, he also picked himself up each time he failed. Currently he is a huge masculinity influencer who teaches men how to better themselves and while a lot of weak sensitive men and their families girlfriends find him offensive to learn from, he actually has a lot of germs there, many men who appreciate how much he taught them.
What can we say of him? He teaches men how to improve themselves physically, mentally and financially. of the type of man you want around you in a fix, in fact, you’d probably want your sons to grow up into a man that mirrors that.
Classic masculinity is known by certain traits. Described as stoicism, loyalty to loved ones and privacy. These are some of the qualities we see in literature from classic Greek stories such as the Iliad and the Odyssey to more contemporary sources such as The Red Badge Of Courage. And your shinski displayed them commendably. An example of his loyalty would be him bringing his old bandmates; Collo and Roba on stage with him for a Kleptomaniax reunion even though he doesn’t have to see it because he’s a real star on his own. He keeps his family respected by respecting privacy.
This photo was influenced by my older mentor who said that although her name is not necessarily like us today for young men, she was the first person to start talking about the red pill and the manosphere in East and Central Africa. He showed great conviction for his principles understood by them to the point of being harassed not only despite the government’s past and he achieved all this before the age of 30.
He built a business, so he’s a model of financial freedom and it’s something every young man should aspire to. His opinions are at times divisive and polarizing, but he stays ten feet down no matter how pilloried he is at times.
I’m starting to like the man because of his loyalty to his friends. Decided to check out his friend 2mbili’s crucifix and champion in his case after being abused by his babymama. The type of friend you really want around you, someone who will take all your battles for themselves. It’s loyalty. He has his own faults, as we all have as men and human beings, but his redeeming qualities are of such immense value that it is difficult to argue that he is not a respected man.
He is a man who really wants to see his friends succeed. it is to him that you can address in case of problem and he will try to help you to solve it. Time and time again and an example of his loyalty is when he was ironically caught cheating on his wife. Thanks to friends, you were in a WhatsApp group with under the bus. It is an admirable quality because there are no virtues in the fox hole. He goes so far as to create opportunities for his friends to drive using his own platforms, which is an admirable quality.
