Betty Kyallo Statement

Betty Kyallo was however quick to release a statement, confirming the closure of her business. She assured her fans that despite this setback, everything was well.

“Thanks for the calls and texts but Mimi Niko Sawa. Many Kenyans are going through the most in business. Many people have closed businesses in this country. I let it go… but Flair will be back. Just a matter of time. Also …. today we reopen @aftershavebyflair Upperhill, La Baita. We have expanded, we are bigger,” she wrote on her socials yesterday.

The former KTN/K24 TV news presenter also said she had found happiness and peace after letting go of Flair By Betty.

“I am happier. I sleep better. My peace of mind is more important than a name. I’m good,” she insisted.

Following her statement, the businesswoman also released a video reiterating her well-being while also hitting out Citizen TV.

“I really appreciate all the love but let me tell, you, I’m good, I’m happier, I just learnt to let go…” Betty said in an Instagram reel.

She went on to taunt the media house, insinuating that they were scared of her impending TV comeback, possibly via her reality show, Kyallo Kulture, which airs on ShowMax TV or at a yet-to-be disclosed TV station.

“For Citizen, by the way, you guys don’t have to be scared of a TV comeback,” Betty clapped back.
