Former Citizens TV news anchor and Metropolitan TV General Manager Terryanne Chebet have decided to put her eggs in another basket. This time the Kenya celebrity decides to start a cosmetic ring with a brand called ‘Keyara Cosmetics’.
The new cosmetic company is a subsidiary of Keyara Organics which aims to offer luxurious products for the African woman.
Terryanne disclosed that she had always desired to venture into cosmetics and the birth of Keyara Cosmetics is indeed a reality.
“My 2015 Vision sheet had #Keyaramakeup on it. I’ve learned to trust the process no matter how long it takes and I’m encouraged to believe in my dreams. Often, I almost pulled out, but deep down I knew that one day it would be a reality. I’m thankful to God for @keyaracosmetics and the chance to grow yet another Brand built for the African QUEEN,” wrote Terryanne.
The birth of her cosmetic line comes about 3 years after she launched Keyara Organics which offers oils, body butter and balms sourced from various parts of Africa.
“As Keyara grows its footprint across the personal care segment, we wish to make a mark on the bright spot that is the globally growing natural products market.”
She further said, “It is time the world to start seeing the bright side of Africa. Some of the world’s most luxurious skincare brands source their recipe oils from Africa, but we, Africans, are left to only export raw materials and barely benefit from the opportunities in value addition.”
Terryanne Chebet is among the aggressive increase in the number of Kenya celebrities who are leveraging their popularity to build wealth for themselves. Amber Ray also recently launched her line of lipsticks called Zumaridi by Amber, Betty Kyallo has a salon by the name Flair by Betty, Vera has Veetox detox tea and Vera Sidika Beauty Parlour, while Huddah is experiencing resounding success with Huddah Cosmetics.
