All the guys in the audience were eager to see the bidding of the ladies hit off. But a rather awkward announcement was made. The beauties were to be auctioned off as one ‘item’, not individually as many had definitely expected.
With the bid starting at Sh7,000, it sluggishly rose to Sh12,000 where it finally settled. Nick tried his best to raise the bar but it seemed the gentlemen were shy to take home three ladies. Not at once, at least.
To make it a complete runway experience, there was the showcasing of new fashion lines from designers, modelled by none other than the celebrities themselves.
Dressed to kill Sarah Hussein (Tanya), her of the Tahidi High tag fame, Pierra Makena, KTN’s showbiz girl Brenda Mwai and other top celebrities graced the runway with the designer clothes and six-inch heels.
Upcoming artistes were also not left out of the event. The likes of dancehall artiste Versatile, Vanika, hip-hop group Clique and Air Force Dancers graced the occasion. To the mainstream fan, Rabbit, Trapee and Ala C did not disappoint.
All for a
