It could even be the celebrities are trying to promote a brand so they decide to do something that is completely out of the ordinary in a bid to sell a product.
Here are a few stunts by local celebrities Kenyan fell for and regretted immediately:
Nelly Oaks and Akothee relationship
Akothee and her manager Nelly Oaks have for the longest time been lying to their fans that they are in a relationship. At the same time, the singer swears she is single and searching for a guy who will not cheat on her.
So who is fooling who? We have the answer.

Otile Brown and Vera Sidika.
Otile Brown and Vera Sidika first started dating for the sole purpose of promoting the singer’s music video. They later staged a breakup that was followed by yet another song.
We all fell for that. They have now called it quits in the most dramatic manner and we hope it is for the good.
Eric Omondi’s balls photo
Eric Omondi while desperately trying to promote a traveling company thought the best play would be filling his pants with things that looked like balls. He then spread his legs and acted like the photo of his nether areas was taken by mistake. It turned out that was only a marketing gimmick that left the internet with enough chatter to cause an earth tremor.
Ringtone and Zari.
Ringtone desperately tried time and again to get his struggling career back on track. He bought a herd of cows and a Range Rover supposedly meant for socialite Zari Hassan. The singer even claimed he wanted to put a ring on her. All for a kick.
Vera Sidika and Calisah
When Vera Sidika called it quits with Otile Brown, she hinted there was something going on between her and Tanzanian model Calisah.
The beauty even suggested she bought the man an expensive fuel guzzler.
The socialite later released a music video that featured none other than Calisah. She did fool a few whiles at it.
Willy Paul’s viagra allegation
The singer was said to have been rushed to hospital after overdosing on viagra. Guess what? He was promoting one of his many songs. Really Willy Paul? Really?
Muhando was caught on video twisting and rolling on the ground during an exorcism. However, all this turned out to be a stunt after she released a song shortly after that.
Amber Ray and Syd.
Amber Ray had people believing she was sleeping with washed-up musician Syd but it later turned out their little rendezvous to Greece was actually for a music video.
Anerlisa and Ben Pol
Ever since February 2018, Anerlisa insisted Tanzanian musician Ben Pol was only a close friend who she referred to as a brother.
She then claimed the two were in business and only trying to promote each other’s brand. The two later confirmed they were actually dating. Stunt or truth?
