2017 was a good year for the women in Kenya's entertainment industry. Most bought new rides that cost several millions and we have details as to who bought what.
Betty Mutei Kyalo
She used to drive a Porsche Cayenne with 001 plates that brought her a lot of controversy including claims that she was dating a married coast politician but when she stopped driving it she bought herself a BMW X5 straight from RMA Motors.
Betty is not your average girl, she is indeed a petrol head. Other than the BMW she also owns a Renault Megane. In fact on the day she bought it she had this to say to her half a million followers on Instagram:
“If you don’t look back at your car after you’ve parked it, you are driving the wrong car. #RenaultMegane”
Her love for cars has seen her start a new TV show on KTN dubbed “Ryde with Betty” which is fashioned after James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. In the show the Friday Briefing host rides with movers and shakers in Keny’s entertainment, political and business industries.
Terryanne Chebet is a Range Rover kind of girl. She started off with a Range Rover Vogue back in the day but last November she got herself a Santorini Black Range Rover Evoque. She fell in love with the Evoque in 2012.
“In 2012 while on a working trip to Beijing I chanced upon news that Victoria Beckham was also in Beijing to launch the special edition #Evoque. There, as a young( ish) journalist my over ambitious dreams to own one were born. To say that dreams come true is an understatement. The Santorini Black may have taken forever to come home, but not once did I give up on believing I would one day own it.”
If you follow Terryanne on Instagram then you will realize that the car is one of her happy spots as she has numerous photos of her and her friends having fun in the car.
If there is one female celebrity that is good at keeping her private life private, that person is Lillian Muli. We actually had a tough time finding photos of what she drives but we still came up with at least two cars in her garage.
The first is a Mercedes Benz. We cannot tell what model it is nor the price but this photo with her son on the passenger side is the closest we could come. Doesn’t look cheap if you ask me, and from my little knowledge about Mercedes Benzes it looks like an E350.
We however found out what her main ride is, a 2017 Land Rover SV Autobiography that costs a whooping Ksh 17.5 million before taxes!!

We knew her cruising Nairobi streets going for concerts in a Toyota Celina but girl upgraded to a Ksh. 4.8 million Jaguar XF 2016. Clearly gospel music pays off.
Do you know any other female celebrity who drives a swanky ride? Hit us up in the comments section.
