How dare they? Naysayers have increasingly been linking Anita Nderu’s lavish lifestyle to a ‘sponsor’ which has forced the bombshell to respond and set the record straight.
Anita, 27, a self-confessed travel enthusiast has been taking trips to different parts of the world – including South Africa and New York in recent months – sparking rumors that a rich older man(sponsor) might be funding her lifestyle.
The Capital FM presenter who doubles up as a news anchor, TV presenter, Coca-Cola brand advocate, and still co-hosts the Trend on NTV, says she is just a hardworking girl and that assumptions that a man is financing her lifestyle are backward and primitive.
“But why will people not allow me to live my best life? I’ve been DMd some of the rumours people have heard about me and apparently one of them is that I have sponsors in my life. Giiirl do you know how hard I work? I’m always telling young women why it’s important to work and make their money. I did a lot of things last year and many people felt like the things I did…someone paid for me.
It’s 2017, it’s very primitive, it’s very backward to assume that a woman cannot live well off her own money, there has to be a man financing her. So maybe they should explain to me what a woman who isn’t being sponsored lives like so I can understand the very backward benchmark they have put on women who work hard for their money. Before you misconstrue what working hard is I work in television-radio, am a social media influencer and I bake cakes, that kind of work,” She said.
She added that she is not successful as a result of witchcraft.
“For the record, I’m not a witch, there are people who believe in witchcraft and I don’t, I believe in God.”
