Kenyan actress Shikx Kapienga recently opened up about the reason many men shy away from approaching her. In an interview with Dr. Ofweneke, she revealed that men are hesitant to slide into her DMs for dates because they perceive her as being too “ghetto.”
According to Shikx, this perception doesn’t bother her much, as she has grown up in the ghetto and is accustomed to such judgments. She expressed that men not approaching her is something she has come to expect given her background.
Shikx also delved into her career journey, highlighting her breakthrough moment in the entertainment industry. She credited the popular Beba Beba show, which aired on TV, for propelling her into the limelight and establishing her brand. Subsequently, she took on roles in notable productions such as ‘Siri,’ ‘Nairobi Half Life’ available on Netflix, and ‘Sugar,’ where she had the opportunity to act alongside Lupita Nyong’o.
In the discussion, Shikx commended Lupita Nyong’o for her exceptional acting prowess and characterized her as a remarkably humble individual, contrary to expectations considering her fame and wealth. Lupita, known for her outstanding role in the widely-viewed ‘Black Panther’ film, continues to make a significant impact in the Kenyan and international film scenes.
