Vera Sidika, born on September 30, 1989 in Mombasa, Kenya, is a well-known TV and social media personality, celebrity, entrepreneur, and socialite. With a net worth of $2.5 million, she is considered one of the wealthiest socialites on the African continent. Many are curious about her source of income and how she became so successful.
Vera Sidika has revealed that her earnings come from club appearances, her detox tea brand Veetox, and her beauty parlor, the Vera Sidika Beauty Parlor. The parlor, located in Western Heights, Westlands, caters to affluent customers and celebrities, and has been open for a year now.
In addition to her beauty parlor, Veetox has also been a major source of income for her. The detox tea is sold not only in Kenya but also in other parts of Africa, including Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Nigeria, with plans to expand to Ghana in the near future. The tea goes for Ksh3, 000 per packet.
Vera also makes money from club appearances, with different fees for different locations. Her international fee starts at 6,000 dollars (Ksh600, 000), which includes a first-class ticket and a stay in a 5-star hotel. For shows in East Africa, she charges at least 3,000 dollars, and locally in Nairobi, her fee is 2,000 dollars.
In an interview with Clouds FM, Vera stated, “Making club appearances is a side hustle, I also have Veetox and a beauty parlor. Veetox is really big because I have no competition. Veetox gets sold out every other time and I don’t even push it as much because it markets itself through word of mouth.”
In conclusion, Vera Sidika’s wealth comes from her successful businesses including her detox tea brand Veetox, her beauty parlor, and her club appearances. She has made a name for herself not only in Kenya but also in other parts of Africa and internationally.
