Nothing in life is just handed to you on a silver platter. You have to earn it, be dedicated to it, and be passionate about it. And celebrated local actress Sandra Anyango Dacha aka Silprosa of the famous local TV programme, Auntie Boss has proved this. She is a hardworking woman, a go-getter.
Silprosa plays the role of a gourmand (yaani mtu anapenda kukula sanaaaa) who often faces criticism for her body size. She is indomitable!
Over the weekend, the Riverwood Awards went down at the Kenya National Theatre and those in attendance, came out dressed in various designs. Silprosa was among those who stole the show at KNT, she dressed in a simple kitenge outfit. The plus size lass did not only turn heads but also set tongues on fire when she was crowned the overall best actress in the country.
What an achievement!
Who knew this lady born and raised in Korogocho, one of Nairobi slums would one day make her hood proud?
The excited Silprosa could not hide her joy. She took to social media to thank her fans for the support
“FIRST OF ALL,GOD NI MSOO❗❗❗
A very big thank you to all those people who took their precious time to vote for me. You made me proud! How i wish i could thank you individually BUT i owe you one! May you be blessed! *kisses*
A very very big thank you to my PRODUCERS Lucy Mwangi and Eve D’Souza for making this happen. If it were not for them, AuntieBoss wouldn’t be AuntieBoss. I wouldn’t be where i am right now. This is so humbling! Oh my….i wish you knew what am feeling right now. I LOVE YOU!!!
A very big thank you to my family.”
Many took to social media to congratulate Silprosa among them former radio queen Eve Dsouza and here are some of the comments.
