Esther Chebet: Coffee dates are outdated
Kenyan actress Esther Chebet popularly known as Chebet has shunned men who still take women out for coffee dates saying they are outdated.
In a video seen by Nairobi News, the famous actress known from ‘The Real Househelps of Kawangware’ shared her sentiments in regards to the popular dating trend of going for coffee saying that it has been overdone and women should no longer accept it.
“Chegi kichana, usizubae,” the actress started off.
“Unashindia coffee coffee coffee na amekunywa coffee mara nyingi hata kwake? Nisione hizo vitu tena!” said Chebet insisting that taking ladies out for coffee dates is outdated and boring.
The actress went on to share date ideas she believes should be considered by men when pursuing a woman saying that it’s better when a man takes note of what the woman’s interests are and turn them into date activities.
“Utashinda umejiongelesha. Mimi nitashinda nimekwambia I will tell you when I will be free. What is hard kuangalia msichana anapenda vitu ya aina gani? Kama anapenda wababa, peleka yeye kwa jimbo la wazee, mahali atasaidika. Kama anapenda magari, peleka yeye showroom. Kama anapenda miti, peleka yeye kwa forest,” Chebet explained.
Esther Chebet has made a name for herself in the film and entertainment industry following her debut on the much celebrated TV show The Real Househelps of Kawangware (TRHK). The actress, who was known as Matilda from the show is a talented woman who acted in the local dramedy TRHK for three years before quitting in 2017.
She later joined ‘Sue na Jonnie’ which airs on Maisha Magic but quit in 2018. It was then that Chebet ventured into comedy and building her brand by posting funny relatable clips of herself on her social platforms.
Talking about her journey in the acting industry, Chebet once shared in an Interview; “I used to work in a cyber cafe and have always been an online person. I find it easy interacting online.”
She also said that the industry isn’t for the faint-hearted and hard work and perseverance are what helped her make it this far.
“I feel that I haven’t exhausted my potential for the two roles I’ve played [in Real Househelps and Sue na Johnie]. I have so much potential and need to get more roles. I always feel I need to go for more auditions so as to get roles.”
The actress-cum-comedienne also revealed that she has been a victim of online trolling saying, “I’ve been bullied, body shamed. Most of them use pseudo accounts. I respond to trolls’ comments and block them afterward. Some of them I just ignore.”
