Musician Shay Diva is keen on expanding her business portfolio, and now wants to start making condoms.
“The scourge of early pregnancies and young girls dropping out of school made me think outside the box. In as much as the vices are rampant in Kenya if we enhance sex education amongst young people we can save a life or two from the unwanted pregnancies as well as from STIs. Furthermore, if you can’t wrap up your head around abstinence, then wrap your head up,” she told Plugged News.
Real name Sheila Mburu, Shay Diva is a multifaceted Kenyan songstress; a phenomenal performer and talented songwriter.
At the same time, Shay is also eyeing politics, with her sight set on Transzoia Member of County Assembly position.
“I am well aware of the problems that youths and women face in our respective counties and I am ready to stand in the gap. I am very vocal about women empowerment and I have a team that is working tirelessly to make this a dream come true,” said the 29-year old.
This will not, however, be the first Kenyan celebrity to think about starting a condom line. In 2012, Octopizzo said he planned to have four condoms in a pack as opposed to the traditional three. He added that to reduce pregnancy, STIs and HIV prevalence, condoms are important.
He claimed to have witnessed the rise of HIV/AIDS and STI’s in his neighbourhood due to lack of money to purchase a condom. This never came to fruition. ?
