How A Sponsor Changed My Life - Vera Sidika

Vera has opened up about a man who spoiled her with gifts and money. She insists that he is her first and only sponsor (something which we do not believe) but let’s get to the story, shall we?
Here’s her confession.
He was in a situation where he was divorced, he was also older than me. He treated me so well and did a lot of thing for me. He did not like that I was in the modeling industry. And that I was hustling here and there working. I was also living very far from him, on Thika road, which was near my university. So it got to a point where he said, ‘as my girlfriend, I want to help you.
But how did they meet?.
It has been and interesting journey. I left Mombasa for Nairobi. It is a big city and the culture is different from that in mombasa. Life is fast paced. I joined the modelling industry as I studied at kenyatta university. During the holidays, I would go back to mombasa. At the time there were beach parties. At one of the parties there was a man who loved me. We talked, he liked me and we kept in touch. He lived in nairobi. At the time, I did not know that he was a prominent businessman.
And how much did he use to spoil her?
He gave me money. A lot of money. You cannot have a rich and successful man and you are looking jaded and broke. He would give me money for shopping. To say the truth, that is money, I had never seen in my entire life! He would give me money and it would shock me.
After two or three week of him showering me with gifts and money, I thought to myself, ‘this is money I’m not used to getting. I have to start saving.’ I dated him for one and a half years. Every friday, for all those years, I would go to the bank and deposit money he had given me.
The affair later ended but Vera had benefited a lot.
A man who is successful in business can get any woman he so pleases, you cannot control him. You have to know that he may leave you and start going after other women. That is normal. It got to a point where we drifted apart and we broke up.
What was her next move?
I bought a property in mombasa, and started investing in poultry farming at the same time, I was also modeling, featuring in videos and with time I blew up. And that was the starting point of my life as a business woman.
And to sum it up.
Later when my businesses picked up, people started saying, ‘she sells her body; but they had no idea what my game plan was.
What do you think of her story?
