While most of us are getting headaches from the prolonged political season, Vera Sidika is currently enjoying the good life in the breathtaking Maldives.
Vera, who is soaking up some heat and enjoying some much-needed R&R, flew out to one of the exotic islands on the tropical nation to celebrate her birthday.
And because there are people who don’t like when others prosper, Vera’s vacay has been soured with rumors that she is being sponsored by Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the vice president of Equatorial Guinea.
Teodoro, nicknamed Teodorín, is also the son of oil-rich Equatorial Guinea’s longtime president Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
It makes some sense that Vera would be linked with Teodorin as he was recently spotted in Maldives and he has a reputation for living lavishly.
In June, he was on trial in France for splurging on a Parisian mansion, a private jet and a fleet of luxury cars using tens of millions of dollars he allegedly looted from his country.
Prosecutors claimed that he’s amassed a fortune, including an opulent mansion near the Champs-Elysees, along with Bugattis, Ferraris and an Aston Martin. He also allegedly spent millions of dollars on pricey European art and jewelry.
He also owns a yacht named Ice, which reportedly costs about $800,000 a month to maintain, according to an article in the French newspaper Le Monde.
Vera has, however, come out to distance himself from the controversial man, saying her trip is self-funded.
“Y’all google the One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives and tell me if it looks anything like my hotel!! How can people claim someone is with me when I’m on an island far away. You need a flight to get here! As in, the bed, bathroom, zero similarities,” Vera wrote.
She added: “Broke and basic hating Kenyan b*tches. How can someone say I’m with some dude just because I’m in Maldives and they are in Maldives? There are 1,220 islands in this place. Can’t y’all just let me be! The One & Only Reethi Rah don’t even look like this.”
She explained that she doesn’t need a man and the vacay was a promise she had made herself.
“I promised myself I’ll go to Maldives or Santorini for my birthday this year. I pay cash for my business class flights and hotels. Y’all stop giving credit to people for my money! Stop it! This has been going on for too long. Just stop.”
“Even when I’m in a relationship and you see me living lavishly it’s all me. Not the man. I make promises to myself and keep them. I never disappoint myself. Men will always disappoint you even if it’s your damn birthday, anniversary or just a mere promise.”
