The fashion designer further argues that most of them show up in ‘low budget outfits’, explaining why she never honors invites to some events. 

“That’s why I have not shown up in any that invited me, and I’ll be there wasting my outfit, my class, entertaining mediocrity.

Y’all can’t invest in your own image! Like y’all being stingy in spending on your own self. Some low-budget outfits, shoes, etc,” read Melina’s post.

She added, “Hii Kenya vile mnavaa in these award events waaah! What in the hell is this!!”
