Betty Kyallo receives support from mom and celebs post-auction reports

Betty Kyallo’s family has stood by her side during her toughest times.

In addition to her family’s support, Kenyan celebrities have also rallied behind media personality and entrepreneur, Betty Kyallo, amidst reports of her business, Flair by Betty, facing auction.

Taking to Instagram to address the situation, the resilient celebrity attributed her business challenges to the harsh economic climate in Kenya.

She candidly acknowledged the difficulties of running a business amidst rent pressures and economic slowdown, ultimately accepting the fate of her venture.

“Obviously, running a business in Kenya has become so difficult,” she expressed.

“Landlords don’t want to reduce rent and it uh becomes a huge burden on businesses that are struggling because of the economic slowdown. I let it go.”

Betty also shared her newfound sense of peace and happiness after letting go of Flair By Betty, emphasising the importance of prioritizing peace of mind over material possessions.

“I am happier. I sleep better. My peace of mind is more important than a name. I’m good,” she said.

Betty also announced the reopening of her other business, Aftershave By Flair, after a two-month expansion hiatus.

“Also, after two months of expansion, we reopen Aftershave By Flair. Gentlemen, come through, I’ll be there today!” she enthusiastically shared.

In a heartfelt response, Betty’s mother, Julia Ngii, expressed her unwavering support and encouragement for her daughter’s journey:

“Life is about being able to fall and get up, when one door closes another opens. My daughter Betty you are smart, you are intelligent and resilient,” she said, “Many people look up to you and you are an inspiration to so many young people, thank you for being open about your joys and struggles, that only makes you more human. As you begin your new venture, know that mum’s prayers and vouching for you and fighting for you. I love you.”

Kenyan celebrities also flooded her comments section with words of encouragement and support.
