The revelation that a Kenyan female influencer has been buying herself gifts and then pretending they are from her man has led to a national discussion about this trait in women.

Both genders agree that it's unnecessary and creates peer pressure online.

Content Creator Nairofey trended Monday, January 23, after confessing she has been buying herself things like flowers and a fridge, then pretending her man did it.

Celebrities have joined Kenyans in reacting to this habit women have. The comments were made under a post on Nairobi Gossip IG.

Among them is David Moya. The influencer commented that

"Mimi sina shida mtu akijisurprise na aseme ni boyfriend amemusurprise kwanza hii valentine season 🌹🌹"

@shirley_ogalo...This nairofey drama is hilarious because why would you send a man YOUR money to save for you😭😭and sign a prenup stating he will take half of your income and buy yourself things but post as if he bought them for you😭😭women, stand up!!!

@OptimusKrimee....I knew that Nairofey did sign over her money and signed a prenup with her UN husband when she said 'scoop that low'.
