Socialite Huddah Monroe has accused Kenyan traders of extorting celebrities when doing transactions with them.
In a bitter revelation, she claimed that famous individuals are overcharged whenever they buy commodities.
She said that she has been a victim, and she has witnessed other celebrities being taken advantage of by traders who quote exorbitant prices because of the presumed status of the celebrities.
“People here think celebrities are not normal people, if you call to order anything you are charged double or three times the original price. When my representatives call its cheap! I don’t call or DM these days, I let anyone else do it for me,” said Huddah.
Huddah cited that this happens because business owners do this with a perception that they have a lot of money.
The socialite noted that the sellers should be happy that she reached out to them instead of trying to extort money from her.
“This is my sweat and blood money, it doesn’t come cheap and we surely not going to pay three times the original price because we are famous or we live a lavish life,” she added.
