• "It's not fair for someone else to work for you, I believe in wealth sharing, coming with my own things and the man bringing his things and we share."- Pierra Makena
Celebrated Kenyan DJ Pierra Makena has said she only dates mature men and has no time for small boys who want to be kept.
The mother of one says it's unfair for someone else to want to be kept when all they do is demand.
Speaking during an interview with SPM Buzz at the Listening party of Ali Kiba's 'Only One King' album, Pierra shared;
"I do not have time for dating men who want to be kept.
I only date mature hardworking men.
There is a generation that is coming that wants easy things.
It's not fair for someone else to work for you, I believe in wealth sharing, coming with my own things and the man bringing his things and we share.
That empowers me as a woman.
There are such people but I do not have time for such.
I can smell a rat from far."
On the type of man she would want, Pierra said
"My type is not physical, I just want someone who can speak to your heart.
He has to be thin, good looking, clean and smells good."
Pierra was also quick to advise women not to let modernisation influence them to assume that there are specific roles for specific genders.
'Gender roles come automatically.
I can't just sit at home and wait for my man to come to cook when he comes home from work. If I am not around he can cook.
If I am at home I will cook. There are things that are generally for women.
Keeping a man clean, he can do the same for me but differently, eg buying me a new cloth. If I can do something why should I let him do it?."
In case you are wondering Pierra recently turned 40.
