Human beings tend to have different cultural practices that are accompanied by special occasions such as a groom shouldn’t see the bride's wedding gown before the D-day.
On The Morning Kiss, Kamene revealed that she has showered with dispenser water and milk ahead of her pre-engagement party.
As a start to the conversation, Obinna was taking a close look at Kamene’s skin and highlighted how flawless and light-skinned she is and that was when she made the big reveal.
“Kamene I knew it, you know that I have been looking at you and am like this skin, there is something, you have showered with dispenser water and milk!” started Obinna.
In laughter, Kamene's response was, “See that was like my pre engagement party now before the official engagement ceremony, apparently, unafaa kuoga na maziwa with flowers na sijui mdang’asini seeds, very weird things." (You are supposed to shower with milk and flowers accompanied by some herbal seeds)
Obinna, who was in disbelief, continued to say that was witchcraft but Kamene insisted that such practices were used in body purification before getting married.
“Kuna wengine wanapakwa asali kwa nywele and what have you, I know it is weird stuff ." (There are others who are applied honey on their hair and other weird stuff)
Obinna for his part said that people are crying over high milk prices and hunger whereas Kamene was busy bathing with the milk.
Kamene quickly disregarded the accusations insisting that by then there were no milk-related issues.
"Watu wanalia ety maziwa imepanda bei na wewe unaoga na maziwa?" (People are crying that the prize of milk has hiked while you are bathing with milk) questioned Obinna as Kamene replied, “Ok skiza(Listen), this was like 6 years ago.”
Bizarre beauty practices have lived on for generations. Like in Japan, tooth blackening or "Ohaguro" as an aristocratic sign of beauty for hundreds of years.
The process was, however, long and arduous and required multiple applications of dangerous chemicals to a child's teeth every day and wearers would often suffer very painful allergic reactions to the chemicals, leading to the banning of the practice in 1870 by the Japanese government.
