Kangai Mwiti and I meet at the boutique, Tune Hotel, in Westlands. It’s a warm and wet afternoon when Kangai shows up in a casual patterned dress and open sandals. No make-up. Her hair is in large simple cornrows that she seems to have had done herself.
I’m shocked. And confused.
I did not expect the founder of Bellesa Africa, a brand that is all about make-up, to have shown up with no make-up at all, be in simple attire and not don a long, expensive, Brazillian weave.
Kangai makes herself comfortable and brushes me off, “I’m actually not about that life.”
