When you think of masculinity, which celebrities do you think of? This is a question I had asked a few of my friends as we sat around having some pretty interesting conversations. The truth is that many Kenyan celebrities are anything but simple. They are weak men who you can’t trust to have your back, do you know if you even want them in your corner if you are ever pressed.

So you can imagine how hard it was for us to come up with celebrities whose masculinity has been respected, but who we feel have shown to be rock solid when it comes to supporting their friends and families. No, this is not about celebrities who have had no scandals and are considered respectable members of society. That’s because a lot of celebrities that your girlfriend thinks are good men, I’m just localized 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 from the Overton window and don’t say an opinion that’s considered controversial, even if they really it may be what they think or feel about a subject.
Andrew Kibbe is right about the celebrity scam
We narrow the list down to 2 or five celebrities that we think every Kenyan man would do well to emulate. This is because they are not only stoic, but they are loyal and have the ability to staunch their opinions and thoughts and defend them, and if proven wrong, have no problem apologizing and adapting in the face of new evidence. These five Kenyan celebrities are:
Much has been said about him. He is an example of a man who tried and failed and tried again and although he faced many failures in life, he also rose every time he failed. He is currently a huge masculinity influencer teaching men to improve and although many sensitive thin men and their families girlfriends find him offensive to learn from him, he actually has a lot of germs out there, a lot of men who appreciate just how much he taught them.
What can be said about him? He teaches men how to improve themselves physically, mentally and financially. the kind of man you want around you, in fact you’d probably want your sons to grow up to be a man who reflects that.
Classic masculinity is known by certain traits. Described as stoic, loyal to relatives and private life. These are some of the qualities we see in literature from classical Greek stories like the Iliad and Odyssey to more modern sources like The Red Badge of Valor. And your shinski showed them commendably. An example of his loyalty would be him bringing his former bandmates; Collo and Roba on stage with him for a gathering of Kleptomaniax, although he should not see, since he is a real star of his. He maintains the respect of his family by respecting privacy.
This photo was influenced by an older mentor of mine who said that although his name wasn’t necessarily what it is now for young men, she was the first person to start discussing the red pill and the manosphere in East and Central Africa. He showed an abundance of conviction in his principles, understood by them to the point of being harassed not only in spite of the government’s past, and he managed all this before he was 30 years old.
He’s built a business, so he’s a model of financial freedom, and that’s something every young man should aspire to. His opinions are sometimes divisive and polarizing, but he remains ten fingers down, regardless of how badly he is sometimes lambasted.
I’m starting to appreciate this man because of how loyal he is to his friends. He decided to check the crucifixion of his friend 2mbili and his champion in his case after being abused by his mother. The kind of friend you really want around you, someone who will take all your struggles as their own. That’s loyalty. He has his own flaws, as do all of us as men and human beings, but his redeeming qualities are of such immense value that it is hard to argue that he is not a man to be respected.
This is a person who sincerely wants his friends to succeed. you can go to him with a problem and he will try to help you solve it. At this time and again and example of his loyalty is when ironically he was caught cheating on his wife. Through the friends you were in a WhatsApp group with under the bus. This is an admirable quality because there are no virtues in the foxhole. He goes so far as to create opportunities for his friends to drive using his own platforms, which is an admirable quality.
