Social media personality Vera Sidika on Tuesday claimed she spent Sh300,000 to import daughter Asia Brown’s bed from UK.
In her Instastories, Vera, who will soon unveil Asia’s nursery, reminisced her childhood, noting that she did not get to enjoy some luxuries.
“Can’t wait to unveil Asia’s nursery. At six months…so magical…girl be sleeping on a bed worth Sh300,000 from UK.
“How I wish I had this life as a newborn,” she wrote in part.
Adding: “Kweli it’s true we work hard to give our kids what we never had. God bless all mothers for doing the best for their babies.”

In recent weeks, Kenyan celebrities have been put on the spot for bragging about their possessions and this was no different as a section of netizens were not particularly amused by Vera’s claim.
Here are some of the reactions:
Salma: Vera is clearly using her baby to remain relevant coz wakati wake ulishakwisha..smart lady. She always knows how to do it.
Bellah: Guys, stop projecting your own issues onto Vera, do not limit her as per your own understanding, people have money huku nje.....Good for you baby Asia
Becky: Good for you Vera. Every mother's dream is to provide a better life to her kid than the one she had
Farid Mbori: Someone tell Africans that importation is not sophistication. Because it's white it's not superior. I pray we overcome this beggarly attitude. This is why we are a dominated race.
David: That's awesome,, the little one is waking up after how many days? What a bed
Samira: Good for you. But some details are unnecessary. The child is too young to understand any of it.
Bahati: How many hours of sleep does it offer
While some bashed them for clout chasing, others argued that such information is not necessary and Kenyan celebrities should do better.
Is it all about clout chasing or they have the money to splash?
