Mike Sonko’s daughter, Sandra, on undergoing breast reduction surgery
Sandra Mbuvi, popularly known as Thickyy Sandra on social media, is one of the daughters of former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi. On social media, she captures days in her life and posts the content for her followers.
Her videos show her driving an expensive Toyota V8, vacationing in beachfront properties or their luxurious mansion at Mua Hills, Machakos County and enjoying the soft life. She is also big on make up, fashion and music.
She accepts that she has a thick body and is not shy to flaunt it on social media, dressed in provocative clothes including tight mini bodycon dresses, short shorts, tops with plunging necklines, bikinis and the like.
She is an advocate for body positivity and is loved by many people for her confidence as evidenced in responses she gets from her followers during her Instagram question and answer sessions.
In one of those sessions, a follower noted that Thickyy Sandra had reduced her weight, telling her she looked amazing. Lately, Sandra has been looking slimmer and her chest area more pronounced than in prior years where she carried a bit more weight.
“You look amazing by the way. I’ve realized that you’ve lost a lot of weight. Did you get a breast reduction surgery?” asked the follower.
In response, Sandra said, “Why would I vile najipenda (the way I really love myself).”
Some time last year, Sandra hit out at people who body shamed her for being a big girl after she posted photos of herself in beach ware, saying she was tired of it.
“Yes, I have stretch marks, yes my thighs touch, yes my tummy jiggles and yes, I’m beautiful. Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are. Be proud of who you are and not ashamed of how someone else sees you. No more body shaming! Big or small, short or tall, none of us are beautiful if we tear others down to build ourselves. I’m tired of getting body shamed,” Sandra said at the time.
Her sister, Saumu Mbuvi, is also currently on a weight loss plan and has been hitting the gym. At one point, Saumu said she missed being petite after carrying two pregnancies and was at one point pondering undergoing weight loss surgery.
In Kenya, weight loss procedures are fast gaining traction with a host of celebrities undergoing various procedures to medically achieve the body they want. Some of these celebs include influencers Risper Faith and Kelvin Kunithua, actresses Jacky Matubia and Kate Actress.
