Eunice Wambui popularly known as Nyasuguta from the famous comedy/drama Vitimbi back in the 90s, has managed to stay relevant in the industry despite many of her counterparts who’ve faded away into insignificance.
She featured in Tahidi High show just after High School before joining Vitimbi. She acted as Mwala’s wife before she was given the full role of Mogaka’s wife for more than 10 years.
The Pangani resident became the talk of town back in 2015, after photos of her visibly lightened skin surfaced. She has in past interviews talked about it and on Friday during an interview on Radio Citizen, she said,
‘I was involved in an accident in 2012/2013. I got dented on the face. The dent was lighter than other parts of my face, consequently making me look like a person who has two facial complexions in one,’ she explained.
The mother of one continued,
‘I saw it wise to bleach so that my face gets an even skin tone. Nilipopata acicdent nikalazwa Kenyatta Hospital nikatoka Kenyatta na ungeniona venye nilikuwa nakaa, hiyo tint ilikuwa inafaa. Hawa [Akina Ateya] waliniona walipokuja hospitali so tint ilikuwa inafaa. Lazima ningetoa tint juu hakuna haja side moja ni mlight na ingine ni mdark, na wewe ni msichana unatembea kwa barabara, mtu anakuona kama wewe ni mkora. So ikabidii nitoe tint ndo nifanane kila mahali.’
Nyasuguta further revealed that it was her mother who advised her “atoe tint” and even gave her products to use.
‘Actually it is my mum who encouraged me. Mamangu mzazi, Alipokuja hosy akaniletea, akaniambia ukipaka hii dawa hapa, unapaka ni hii ingine ili ufanane kwote na ikakuwa hivo. Ni dawa nilikuwa napaka side moja juu hii side ingine haikuwa affected. So ile side haikua affected ndo nilikuwa napaka mafuta ya kutoa tint sasa ndo zikablend. Nikaona nakaa poa.
