About

Despite being the heiress of her parents' empire, Anerlisa Muigai went out of her way to demonstrate that she too can create an empire of her own. Now a successful businesswoman, Anerlisa is an inspiration to many. However, she has not been as successful in her love life and won’t tolerate those questioning it. Is this a case of “a woman can’t have it all?” Find out in Anerlisa Muigai's profile

Personal Life

Anerlisa Muigai needs no introduction. You have heard her name and you probably follow her on social media. She makes the news for good and controversial reasons but her childhood was far removed from the limelight she enjoys today. 

Anerlisa Muigai aged 34, was born on 9 January 1988. She grew up in Karai village in Naivasha. Contrary to what you might think, Anerlisa says that she was not brought up with a silver spoon. In an interview with a local station, she disclosed that they didn’t have house helps at home. She did housework and took care of the house just like most girls. This she says cultivated the values of hard work in her.  

Anerlisa Muigai's Schooling

Not every successful business person attended a posh school. Certainly, Anerlisa Muigai’s education was, for the most part, as normal as that of any other person. She now has the status and wealth that might have you think she got a posh education. Far from it. The Nero Company Limited boss schooled at Father Joseph Baldo in Kinangop. The whereabouts of her secondary education remain unknown but for her university education, she got it in the United Kingdom.  

Anerlisa Muigai's Career

There is no denying that Anerlisa Muigai’s family is business savvy and she has proven that she’s equal to the task. In fact, she acknowledges that growing up around entrepreneurial parents has shaped the way she conducts her business. Plus, she revealed that she once applied for a marketing job at Keroche Breweries but failed to secure the job due to a lack of experience. 

Before becoming the boss of the now known Nero Company, she worked at a fast-food joint, McDonald’s in the United Kingdom. Anerlisa planned on taking up a job at IKEA but her father disapproved and she returned home to work for him.

Nero Company Limited

Whilst she might be the heiress to her parents’ company, Keroche Breweries, that hasn’t stopped Anerlisa Muigai from establishing her own company, Nero Company Limited. She says that having her own company is a way of practising what she learnt from her parents' entrepreneurial journey. 

Apart from that, Anerlisa says that the need to have quality water and change the taste of Kenyan water which according to Anerlisa, is salty and unappealing, inspired her to launch Executive Still Water and Life Still Water brands under Nero Company Limited. This she did after she flew back to the country from the United Kingdom. 

One of the things that make her brand stand out is the design of the bottle that Anerlisa came up with. Anerlisa herself. With most water companies using the usual blue coloured rounded bottles, Anerlisa decided to disrupt the trend by opting for something different. Executive Still Water and Life Still Water are packaged in a champagne designed bottle with a grey and black colour scheme. 

Executive Still Water is the flagship product for Nero Company which was Anerlisa's main aim. However, due to market demand, Anerlisa moved to make an affordable line of water. This is why Nero Company created the Life Still Water brand. A 1000 ML bottle costs Ksh 47, a 500 ML goes for Ksh 27, and Life Still Water 18.9L bottle dispenser is Ksh 310.

If you buy Executive Still Water or Life Still Water, will you notice any difference? Well, take it from Anerlisa herself. 

“First, the seal used in the Executive Still Water is different to the Life Still Water. The quantity of the latter is less compared to the former. Executive water is packaged in a box while Life Still is on nylon wrapping.” 

Challenges

Starting a business is one thing and keeping it going is another. Anerlisa Muigai has had her own fair share of difficulties. 

Anerlisa says that people assumed that her brand was expensive without knowing the price while some thought it was alcohol because of its packaging and did not want to be associated with it. However, over time, her brand gained acceptance in the market as clients reached out. 

Anerlisa says that her first year in business, 2013, was one of the most difficult. She attributed it to the fact that selling a new brand was not easy in a market that was seemingly “saturated”. However, her business eventually picked up as clients were willing to try out her products.

Building a team to work with was another challenge Anerlisa Muigai has faced. Finding people who trust in your vision and desire mutual benefit has not been easy as she found out. Consequently, she made a loss of unknown magnitude in a sponsorship deal. 

What’s the future?

It’s no secret that Anerlisa Muigai is ambitious. She only predicts grand things for her company. Expanding within the local market is one of her aims. Making different products apart from water is also in her plans and the big one? Taking her brand outside Kenya.

Anerlisa Muigai's Relationship

Like any other celebrity, Anerlisa Muigai’s love affairs have made the internet go wild. The latest relationship talk surrounds her failed marriage to Tanzanian singer Benard Paul Myang’anga popularly known as Ben Pol. Anerlisa Muigai and Ben Pol got married in 2020 in Tanzania in a private wedding. 

Despite attempts of both parties to keep away the prying eyes of the public, fans still got a glimpse of Anerlisa Muigau’s photos as they made rounds on the internet. Is there anything that can’t leak to the press or internet these days? She was in a white mermaid gown, Ben Pol in a white and black broken suit with a few people, possibly close family and friends, in the background.

Anerlisa Muigai and Ben Pol are said to have started dating in 2018. In 2020, the singer proposed to Anerlisa while on holiday at the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort. He stated that the engagement ring cost him about Ksh 1.1 million.

Trouble in paradise 

Things were not always cosy between Anerlisa Muigai and Ben Pol. The singer said that trouble between the two can be traced back to September 2020. They were not on speaking terms and Anerlisa Muigai, through her lawyers, served him with letters of separation. Despite that, the two later resolved their differences and got back together. They seemed to have sailed the tide until another big wave hit on February 2021. Again, just like before, they weren’t on speaking terms. This time, their relationship nose-dived.  

Divorce

Nothing Ben Sol did, if he is to be believed, worked and so eventually, he filed for divorce less than a year into their marriage. The Tanzanian has since gone public about what transpired between the two. He stated that Anerlisa's insecurities are one of the things that led to their breakup. 

On her part, Anerlisa also stated that Ben Pol was insecure without going into the details of what really happened. Further, she stated that she doesn't want to be involved in further drama with the Tanzanian singer. 

Anerlisa Muigai’s divorce to Ben Pol has since been finalised after the Nero CEO revealed that she signed all the legal documents. 

Previously… 

Anerlisa Muigai has been in and out of relationships over the years. In all of them, the public has always had a look into what's happened and obviously, they've been marred in controversy. Let's look at some of them. 

Anerlisa Muigai's boyfriend Don was said to be married when they dated. The Nero Company CEO was accused of being a homewrecker on social media by a woman named Njoki. Anerlisa denied the claims. Anerlisa and Don did not really last long. They eventually went separate ways. Don later admitted that he had a family. 

In what is said to be her first-ever relationship, the Keroche Breweries heiress dated one of the hottest television presenters in Ian Mugoya. While fans were excited about the pair, the two broke their relationship for unspecified reasons. 

Stephen Kungu is another man that Anerlisa Muigai has been involved with. Anerlisa Muigai and Stephen Kungu dated for five years. At the time, fans were enthralled in their romance as the two displayed their lavish lifestyle for all to see. Anerlisa's engagement was the staff of dreams. Kungu serenaded Anerlisa as he made his proposal. It was a fairytale.

However, six months into their engagement, Anerlisa called it off and walked away. She did not reveal the reason for the break-up but she threw out a line on her Instagram post where she stated that public relationships don't last.   

Is Anerlisa dating again?

It appears that Anerlisa Muigai might be taken once more. She has been linked with a few men since her divorce got finalised last year. Ommy Dimpoz a Bongo Flava artist is rumoured to be Anerlisa Muigai’s boyfriend. As that happens, Anerlisa has also been posting baby pictures of another man on her Insta stories. The man is said to be a friend of Anerlisa’s brother. With all this going on, we are yet to establish Anerlisa Muigai’s boyfriend's name.

Anerlisa Muigai's Family

Anerlisa Muigai grew up with her parents and four siblings - two brothers and a sister. She is the second born. Edward Muigai and James Karanja are Anerlisa Muigai’s brothers. Unfortunately, Anerlisa lost her sister Tecra Muigai in 2020. Not much is known about what Anerlisa Muigai’s siblings do.

The celebrated founder and CEO of Keroche Breweries Tabitha Karanja is Anerlisa Muigai’s mother. She resembles her in every way possible and Anerlisa speaks of how proud her mother is of her for what she’s managed to achieve. 

The same sentiments are echoed by Joseph Karanja, Anerlisa Muigai’s dad. In an interview with a local station, Anerlisa described him as a man “who likes results. It’s all about delivery and not just the talk.” Unlike his wife and daughter, Joseph Karanja maintains a low key profile. A rare photo of his was shared by Anerlisa on his 70th birthday.

Anerlisa Muigai's Lifestyle

Weight loss journey

Weight loss is a controversial topic. Whether you chose to lose, add or maintain weight remains to be a personal choice. Talking about someone’s weight is also off-limits unless the individual in question is comfortable doing it. 

One person who is comfortable talking about her weight loss journey is Anerlisa Muigai. She was the talk of the town after she lost up to 60 kilograms from 124 in 2018. In an emotional post on Instagram, Anerlisa Muigai revealed that only three clothes fit her, she disliked herself, found it hard to do grooming, and avoided family functions and any talk about her weight.

But she turned all that around. According to Anerlisa, eating well, going to the gym and the use of her app is behind the transformation. Plus, she promised her family she would lose weight in memory of her late sister Tecra Muigai. 

The change is evident from Anerlisa Muigai’s before and after pictures. 

Was it surgery?

However, not everyone is convinced about Anerlisa Muigai’s weight loss story. Fans have accused her of lying as they suggest that she might have gone under the knife. After all, she has the money to do a liposuction. 

However, Anerlisa has denied rumours about doing weight loss surgery. She’s shut down fans on her social media pages stating that most make the assumption because they find it hard to keep up with the demands of losing weight. 

She even has an entire Instagram page, Anerlisa weight loss platform, where she shares her before and after pictures, types of foods she eats, and advice on how you can lose weight.

Despite all this, Anerlisa Muigai’s weight loss surgery rumours won’t just go away. It’s the internet, after all, you can't really beat it so maybe Anerlisa has to resign herself to that fact.

Birthday

Photos of Anerlisa Muigai’s birthday party were all over her Instagram page as the Keroche Breweries heiress turned 34. It was an all-white affair as Anerlisa and her friends snapped pictures in differently designed white dresses. 

Anerlisa Muigai’s IG also has pictures of her in a flawless blue mermaid dress and another black dress that was seemingly her evening wear. Champagne bottles, desserts, pictures of her family and friends as well as part of the decor are on her IG. This must have been quite the party.  

Anerlisa Muigai's Controversy

Is Anerlisa Muigai pregnant?

Everyone loves baby rumours from their favourite celebrity. This time, Anerlisa Muigai was at the centre of pregnancy rumours after a couple of cryptic messages she shared on her Instagram page. This was before her relationship with Tanzanian singer Ben Sol fell apart. 

At one time, she put a picture holding “her bump” and captioned it “how I feel today.” In another, she was at Nairobi Hospital. She said, “not every time you go to the hospital is bad news, God is good is all I can say.”

In 2021, she has announced that she was ready to start a family so fans had every reason to believe that Anerlisa Muigai was expectant. You will have to wait longer for any pregnancy news from Anerlisa Muigai. 

“Don’t DM me, please!”

Anerlisa Muigai has expressed her disgust at men who keep sliding to her DM asking for her hand. She told off men in a no-nonsense post on Instagram, telling men that she was not free. Plus, Anerlisa stated that these men should focus on building their own wealth and not look for independent women to support them.

Anerlisa Muigai conned

Well, you might think that wealthy people cannot fall prey to conmanship because of the social proof they have. However, that social proof is partly the reason why Anerlisa Muigai got duped. Ben Kang’ang’i, Anerlisa’s alleged ex-lover asked for Ksh 20 million. 

The wealthy businesswoman granted her Ksh 7 million. Ben was to source the rest elsewhere. However, he was unable to find a financier who trusted him so Anerlisa did the work for him. She borrowed Ksh 13 million and put two cars, Audi Q7 & Range Rover Evoque, as collateral. 

Only after the deal was done did Anerlisa realise that something was wrong. She saw Ben Kang’ang’i socialise with a man who was associated with fraud and immediately approached the court to save herself. 

Kang’ang’i was compelled to refund part of the money. Ben later sued Anerlisa for defamation. He claimed that she ruined his reputation by linking him to Dennis Mwangeka, a car sales businessman. Dennis claimed that Anerlisa defaulted on his Ksh 19.9 million loans.

“People are jealous of me”

How many times have you heard this statement from a celebrity? Anerlisa Muigau claims that women are envious of her success and body. The Nero Company CEO lost over 60kgs and since that transformation, she has been all over social media flaunting her body and posting about weight loss.  

Those comments came after she was criticised for wearing a see-through black jumpsuit at an event she attended at Kiza Lounge in 2018. She further questioned why women are always hating on other women. Anerlisa promises that she will not bow to anyone’s demands and will always stay positive. 

Anerlisa Muigai's Car

Of course, she moves around in some of the best machines that money can buy. Anerlisa Muigai’s cars include a Range Rover Velar that features prominently in her Instagram grid. Her dream car as she described the Range Rover, cost her an estimated Ksh 12 million. 

Anerlisa Muigai's House

You guessed right. Anerlisa Muigai’s house is in one of the posh neighbourhoods in town. She lives in Riverside Drive. Anerlisa once gave her fans an inside look into her elegant home. The furniture and all other pieces around the house can only be premium. 

Anerlisa Muigai's Net Worth
