Sean Andrew, grandson of former President Mwai Kibaki has some choice words for members of popular Facebook group Kilimani Mums.
The Art Mashariki-signed model was speaking to The Star in a candid interview when the topic about the group came up.
“Are you aware of Kilimani Mums? How do you feel about them thirsting over you?” he was asked.
The USIU student replied: “I appreciate all the love being sent towards me and all the admiration from women. I’m humbled by it. It doesn’t add to my ego or anything. I’m grateful but I didn’t know about this Kilimani Mums thing. Quite honestly, it’s not that it makes me uncomfortable but I think they would do better with their time if they use that group for something positive other than thirsting over guys. They are grown women after all. They could lead by example in doing something positive. That’s what I believe.”
Sean, an upcoming model who shot to the limelight following a Nairobi Wire exclusive on his relationship with YouTube star Elodie Zone, also spoke about things he’s passionate about, his studies and more about his personal life.
Here’s some excerpts.
What do you love doing for fun and what don’t you like?
Sean: Generally I love doing photography. I enjoy modelling… chilling with friends; not too active with sports. When I do, I love playing golf or tennis.
What I don’t like is people who are two-faced or ignorant. I’m very simple with my dislikes. If I don’t like it, I will be very honest about it. Sometimes you just have to be real and tell it the way it is.
What do you study and why did you choose it?
S: I study psychology and minor in international relations in USIU. I picked the course because I realised many households are having domestic problems. It spreads out from the head of the family all the way to the children. I really would like to address those issues and help people where I can. I picked IR because I think economically this country should start looking outward for help. We shouldn’t depend too much on the West; we should also look Eastward and partner with countries that are developing like we are. I’d like to continue with the spirit of bipartisanship.
There aren’t many models in the country compared to a place like South Africa. Why did you choose to pursue this art and what challenges and achievements have you had so far?
S: This is because there’s no mature market for it, which is quite challenging. I chose to do it as a point of self interest. I wanted to boost my confidence, meet people in the profession, get some tips, help out where I can. One of the models actually told me that a candle can light another candle and share the light… instead of just burning on its own.
Are there any causes you’re passionate about?
S: Yes, three causes. One is education. In the long run, our children are our future. I personally believe that we don’t inherit the future from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. The second is water. I was reading an article the other day about this man who drives for hours in Turkana to supply water to wild animals. The other one is anti-poaching. Projects like Friends of the National Park, Hands Off Our Elephants and Stand Up and Shout Out.
