“I couldn’t believe my eyes. The first thing I did was screen shot the follow and shared it on my Insta Stories with the caption: ‘Awwwwwwww, see who started following me on IG, I feel the love. Thank you @cynthiabailey,’” she said.

Still excited, in another status update, Ms Obuya wrote: “When the rich, famous and superstar start following you; know that the anointing in you is doing press-ups. Later the same day, the RHOA superstar uploaded a photo of herself and captioned it ‘New energy, new beginnings.’ I liked and commented on the post. Little did I know that she would pin my comment alongside her sister Malorie Bailey (mal_bailey)’s pinned comment.”

While some musicians in Kenya like KRG are allegedly charging ‘250K’ for one Instagram follow back, Ms Obuya said that despite being a small town girl, living in a small suburb in Nairobi Kenya, she is humbled with a free follow by a celebrity all the way from Atlanta Georgia.

Cynthia Bailey has been in the news lately after she recently split with her husband Mike Hill who is a TV host/actor at fox sports, Netflix and ESPN.
