Being a public figure, you have to do everything to remain relevant or attractive to as many people as possible. In this case, we have several Male celebrities who have taken their body goals a notch higher to make sure that they look good when they turn up for a show or when doing their stuff in-studio or social media. In this day and age, appearance is no longer a preserve of women, we have men who have joined the bandwagon of working towards getting a great body. And fans are, unforgiving they want their celebrities looking fit.
A few years ago, an upcoming artiste, from Meru, received the wrath of fans after he got booed off stage for giving Sauti Sol a shirtless competition in their Life and Die in Africa tour. He was told he was ‘a baby version’ of the seasoned artistes’ well-groomed abs. Fans can break an artiste’s spirit with their comments simply because they disapprove of the performer’s looks. Delvin Mudigi, a Sauti soul musician better known as Savara, has been creating mental health awareness via his social media pages.
When the boy band released their Nishike hit in 2016, the track became the most popular song in East Africa. It gained traction for the simple fact that the video had the boys showcasing their well-toned bare chests. Moral cops condemned the hot-looking boys for indecency. On the contrary, millions of young people, especially young girls who were smitten, got into their DMs seeking to have fun with the boys. At some point, the video of the song was banned. However, as more creatives began pushing the envelope with videos expressing masculinity and bare chest hitting social media, the video became just another one among many. This article will take a look at some of the celebrities who have decided to take their body goals a notch higher.
The OG (Khaligraph Jones)
The most loved rapper in the country, he was once recorded saying that he at one point worked as a bouncer in city clubs to make ends meet. You have got to give it up to the OG whose bully physique complements his Hip Hop mean-like persona. He has frequently taken jibes while bullying fellow artists, who have been too lazy to workout. Clearly, the rapper whose career is at its prime is not showing any signs of taking a break for his extensive workouts. It does not look like he will let anyone stand in for him and his sculpting bodybuilding supplements and exercises.
The one-third member of the popular boy group H_Art the Band also takes his training seriously and has a routine to maintain his ripped body. A boxing fanatic, the mellow voiced guitarist has daily workout sessions directed by a celebrity boxing trainer after which he exercises in their newly-acquired home gym. Kenchez does not shy away from flexing his muscles, and his chiseled abs have earned him more female fans as a result.
Frankie Just Gym it/Shiv Simani
The duo were bosom buddies who even established a fitness company together before they fell apart. The two have since become household names when it comes to matters fitness and nutrition. They have each recounted their journey, with Shiv becoming a level1 CrossFit trainer and Frankie settling for nutrition and lifestyle consultant. While at it, they have dated some of the hottest personalities - could be a muscle thing.
The popular gospel mix-master is always seen encouraging his fans to follow his workout routine through his #stilllearning movement. In early 2020, Sadique shared a photo of his body transformation showing off his buff physique on social media. Later on, on April 1, he posted a photo of his new look without his trademark dreadlocks, which fans assumed was an April fools prank. A month earlier, he teased with the meme of a monkey, likening it to someone shaving off locks after 10 years. His fans made fun of this, encouraging that his move would contribute to his future weight addition following the popular belief that rasta men seldom gain weight. Others applauded his new weight, saying that he had such a lean body, that he had lost too much weight, even on his beard. “Brathe ulikuwa umekonda hadi ndevu,” teased a fan.
Eric Omondi/Mcee Antonio
It was laughable to think that Eric would once own a ripped body complete with abs. However, body transformation has been a result of highly intensive workouts and a massive food ratio characterized by five meals a day that is preceded by consuming five eggs in the morning. His workout routines are guided by a former bodybuilding titleholder. “The former Mr. Kenya takes me through mandatory intense training, and healthy eating including fish and brown rice,” he said. Eric however claims to have been approached by a corporate client who paid him handsomely to transform his image before he fell in love with the workout sessions. Previously, Eric was known for his signature skinny look and with his body transformation, he has created an Instagram museum for the women, who spend time ogling his shirtless posts. His hypeman, Antonio has also taken up the workout sessions and is equally coupling it up with martial arts.
It was YouTuber Flaqo who recently broke the net with an image showing his well-toned image and a revelation, “It was that one month of zero content in 2020. I had grown well over my normal weight, from 72kg to 86kg. I looked very different on camera, wakanichekelea kwa DMs… (fans mocked me) he wrote. Indeed, the two images looked miles apart. The transformation showed his new muscular body in under a year. At first glance, many thought this was an altered image but when the truth came out, the funnyman had added thousands of fans, read females, to his following. “I lived in the gym,” he said.
This Kasabunian rapper has got some abs to himself, which he gladly flaunts, complimenting his numerous tattoos. TDat is notable for shooting his music videos shirtless and has never held reservations to post hundreds of bear chest pictures on social media. Known for his charismatic energy while on stage, the workouts add to the energy he displays despite his stubby structure.
