Kenyan female rapper Maandy has in a recent interaction with her fans acknowledged that she is in love with the skin she’s in.

While giving encouragement to her female melanin skin followers, Maandy noted that despite other people’s opinions about her complexion, she has never been moved to see herself as less attractive or otherwise.

“I have always been absolutely obsessed with my melanin!!! Even when people try to convince me that it’s not pretty enough !! 🥹🥹 I mean look at this !!!!! To my darker skin babes you have no idea how beautiful you are !! And I will remind you every chance I get,” said Maandy.

Maandy has established herself as a force in the music industry to reckon with. As such, the young and blooming artiste was recently revealed as a new partner with Kenya Breweries Limited’s spirits brand, Chrome, in an electrifying celebration of Kenyan urban culture at the Marine Park Resort in Chuka, Tharaka-Nithi County.

The experience was not just about Maandy; it also featured performances by a lineup of talented artistes, including Bensoul’s soulful melodies, Ndovu Kuu’s captivating beats, and Fathermoh’s infectious anthems.
