Socialite Vera Sidika announces social media sabbatical

Renowned socialite Vera Sidika says she is taking a social media break for medical reasons.

The mother of two conveyed this message to her fans through her Instagram stories, requesting their prayers during her health challenges.

“I’m unwell, remember me in your prayers.”

She further explained the sabbatical will go on up until the points she ‘regains her health’.

“I’ve been offline and will be staying off media and any other app for a bit. Until I feel better. All love.”

Having been in the public eye for sometime, Vera Sidika has attracted attention, particularly after her separation from her husband, musician Brown Mauzo, in August 2023.

Mauzo, in a recent interview, exclusively told Nairobi News that co-parenting particularly in the aftermath of a separation is usually tough.

He spoke weeks after reports came out that he had missed his daughter’s birthday party organised by Vera.

Mauzo is a father of five namely Princess Asia, Zulfa Brown, Hakeem Mauzo, Lareesa Brown, and Prince Ice Brown.

“I had never anticipated to have kids grow without me around, but it keeps happening. I always want to raise my kids with their mother. I am not perfect, but when you get tired of each other, the separation happens. The kid will not be complete. Both parents are very important in the life of children,” Mauzo explained.

When questioned about child support, Mauzo revealed that some of his baby mamas have not allowed him to contribute financially.

Despite his efforts, he said he has encountered resistance.

“I wish I could do that, but I was trying those close to my baby mamas, like even involving the brother and the nanny, but they told me it was impossible. They put me away.”

Discussing the challenges faced by men in co-parenting scenarios, Mauzo highlighted the difficulty of navigating relationships with baby mamas after breakups.

He emphasized the importance of allowing fathers to be actively present in their children’s lives, acknowledging the subtle challenges faced, especially when the child is young.

“Baby mamas, you expect them to be different until the relationship fails. That is when you will know they are the same. The greatest challenge is to raise kids in a broken marriage,” he added.
