Career 

We have seen Brenda Wairimu play different roles in different films as a rich spoilt kid or that of an envious woman but when she started, she didn’t even have any acting experience. Unlike other actors, Brenda Wairimu did not take part in drama in high school. 

She came across an audition post on Facebook for the film Changing Times. Without any experience, Brenda Wairimu took the leap of faith and ended up with a role. She played Shariffa, a girl who comes from a humble background trying to fit in with the rich kids. She is in university on scholarship and doesn’t want others to find out so she lives a lie.

That was her breakthrough film and led to another Mali: United by Blood. Divided by Greed where she played the role of Lulu Mali, the daughter of Gregory Mali and Mabel. 

Brenda Wairimu was on a roll and got more gigs. In 2012, she featured on the highly-acclaimed MTV Africa series Shuga in the role of Dala. In 2013, she played Pamela Oyenga in Kona, a show that aired on Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC). Other films Brenda Wairimu has featured in include Naku Penta Naku Taka, Subira, & Wavamazi. 

Brenda Wairimu’s most recent films include Selina where she plays the role of Rosette, a canning woman who is out to get Selina’s husband Nelson Mackenzie. Brenda also stars in the short film Blurred as Kare which depicts the moral dilemma of having to choose between a brother and a father. In Monica, Brenda takes the leading role and acts as Monica, a conniving woman who is after a wealthy man.

You can also watch Brenda Wairimu on Disconnect, a film directed by Tosh Gitonga and aired on Netflix. She plays the role of Celine, a girl who struggles to find a good relationship and uses the help of her friends to try and make the right decision. 

Brenda Wairimu is also a television host. She’s presented Mommy 101 on Ebru TV Kenya and also appeared as a panellist on Let’s Talk, a round table celebrity panel gossip show on the same station.    

Relationships

Brenda Wairimu admitted to making the first move on Juliani. She disclosed that she innocently messaged him to let him know that she loves her songs. Brenda Wairimu’s chat with Juliani blossomed into a relationship. 

After a series of breakups during their eight-year relationship, Brenda Wairimu and baby daddy rapper Juliani finally called it quits in 2018. Brenda Wairimu said that things were not working out and both decided to go separate ways. Brenda Wairimu and Juliani have a daughter named Amor Njeri. 

Brenda Wairimu’s wedding

Brenda Wairimu’s photos in a wedding gown made rounds online. This led people to believe that the sexy actress was finally settling down. Contrary to that, Brenda Wairimu’s marriage was part of her role in the drama series Selina. Brenda plays the role of Rosette, a conniving woman who manages to steal Nelson Mackenzie from Selina and convinces him into marriage. 

Controversy

Brenda Wairimu’s pregnancy

After she pulled all stops to hide her pregnancy back in 2014, there was no way she was just going to advertise any of that news in 2021. This is why when the actress posted a video on Instagram showing a baby bump, many of her fans did not quite believe it. They even made fun of her and compared her to Eric Omondi who had pulled a similar stunt to promote an upcoming song. Additionally, other images on her IG before and after the video indicated that she was just pulling a prank.

Raunchy pics  

We all know that Brenda Wairimu is gorgeous. Well, she set social media ablaze when she posted racy photos in white lingerie. In response, the actress said that the images were meant to encourage women to be proud of their sexuality and body. She further stated that it’s something she always wanted to do. 

Car

Not many people would imagine that a successful actress like Brenda Wairimu would drive a probox. Yes, that’s right. She inherited that car from her late mum and when it was no longer functional, she thought about purchasing a brand new Toyota Harrier. 

Net Worth

Brenda Wairimu is one of the biggest earners of the Kenyan film industry. She tends to play the leading role in movies and does it to perfection. That alone pays off well but it’s not the only thing she does. Brenda is also a model. Her net worth is estimated to be $2 million.
