She is by far the most popular Kenyan socialite (others argue her nemesis Huddah is, well..), her name is Vera Sidika and she is always treating her battalion of fans especially team mafisi to mouthwatering snaps.
Fans of hers who went to stalk her on Instagram a few hours ago got a rude shock when they found an empty page and the name changed.
The original Kenyan socialite who is currently in London on holiday after traversing the globe like a flight attendant, has been showering us with pics of her vacation. she has documented every moment since leaving Kenya a few weeks ago.
But someone decided to spoil her party, her Instagram account is no more. Vera’s account which boasts over 640,000 followers has been hacked and the name changed.
But the hacker didn’t stop there, s/he deleted all her photos and videos and has been changing the username of the account every few hours.
Vera is yet to ‘officially’ address the issue on her other verified social media accounts but there are two new IG accounts under her name although it remains unclear if she is the one running them. In one of the accounts, Sidika (if it’s not an impersonator), has assured her fans that she is working on recovering the account.
“Old account hacked. Still working on it.” She posted.
Soon after it happened, speculation hit the interwebs with people saying it could be a publicity stunt.. Some have even concluded that her Nigerian ex boyfriend Yommy Johnson is behind the hacking while others are saying that Vera has deactivated or even sold it. I guess we don’t have an option but wait to hear from the horse’s mouth.
This is coming on the back of popular radio presenter Shaffie Weru’s Gmail, Instagram and Facebook accounts getting hacked. It took him more than a week to regain them after thorough investigations which revealed that a Prosper Chirubwa to be the culprit behind the mask.
