Instances of once financially stable ladies now struggling to earn enough to pay the bills are wild, and that of Renee is an incredible example.
The 31-year-old Instagram slayqueen who left her friends begrudging her flashy life is now a shell of her former self. The well known woman has been lying low like an envelope and Instagram users have been pondering where she vanished to.
All things considered, Renee imparted her pitiful story to enlighten ladies out there. The lovely, curvy lady revealed she has sunk into debts after a Nigerian man she met at a famous club in Nairobi’s Kilimani enticed her into borrowing loans for him.
“We met in early 2019 and on the first night I went to his three-bedroomed apartment in Kileleshwa,where he was staying with five other Nigerians. It was love at first sight. We exchanged ideas and I was convinced he was the one God had kept for me,” she said.
Renee, a college graduate, who runs online beauty businesses and for the most part relies upon wababa to support her way of life, said she quit dating multiple partners after meeting alex, who promised him paradise if she consented to date him.
The two began dating and they would spend nights at one another’s apartments within three months, Alex was at that point intending to fly her to Cyprus to study a masters course at one university in
Nigerian man on a borrowing binge
Renee said around the fifth month into their relationship, her ideal man was done treating her like a princess like before. He was no longer popping bottles at whatever point they went out, and he began borrowing her cash.
“I was shocked when he asked me to loan him KSh 130k. I was sceptical whether to lend him or not. I had heard stories of foreign men conning Kenyan women but I never thought of him as a scammer. He was sweet and charming,” she explained.
The Instagram model said Alex acquired cash once more, not twice, thrice, but rather a few times, and she was starting to doubt if he was indeed the son of a chief back in his country as he claimed.
By September 2019, she had given the man with a sweet tongue KSh 2 million, and her savings were almost depleted.
“One morning, he called me asking for KSh1.5 million, to send to a man he kept referring to chairman so that he could help him gain his foreign back account which had been locked due to lack of proper ‘registration’. I had only KSh 170k in my savings account and he begged me to borrow anywhere and he would refund double the amount,” Renee narrated.
The soft-spoken lady said she had trusted Alex, and it never crossed her mind that he could be a scammer.
“I went to one of the money lenders offices and gave got a loan of KSh 450k and left my logbook as collateral. After that, I borrowed more money from my friends and within three days I had the cash (KSh 1.5 million),” she recalled.
Renee said Alex asked her to meet him at an apartment in Kilimani, next to the club where they first met, so that he could pick the cash there.
“We had lunch, had a lengthy chat and he promised me that he would refund all the KSh 3.5 million plus a huge interest. We parted ways and he promised to call the following day (which was a Thursday). I was happy and even called two of my best friends to share the good news but one simply responded telling me ‘hope you’ve not been conned’,” she remembered.
The following day was Mteja hapatikani,the money was gone
