She shared a video, gushing about how her skin is glowing. In the video, she is seen calling for a young lady named Deborah after gushing about her skin.
When the lady arrives, Kaisha asks her what she’s making for her for breakfast and the girl responds. Kaisha then tells the lady to get on with it and bring her breakfast.
Twitter users felt she didn’t need to add the last part of the video with her domestic staff so they called her out. Some said her action was “demeaning” to the girl, others asked why it was necessary for her to put her domestic staff out like that.

Big Brother Naija star, Dorathy Bachor celebrated her 25th birthday party on Wednesday night, November 4th with some of her fellow ex-housemates including die-hard fans and friends in attendance.

A video from the event is now making rounds on social media. It shows the moment Erica arrived at the party and walked up to Dorathy to exchange pleasantries as Laycon stood close to them.
Whilst greeting the celebrant and commanding attention from cheering guests at the party, Laycon was spotted staring at Erica in ‘admiration.’
Recall the Big Brother Naija season five winner had a crush on Erica while they were in the house, and also spoke to their housemates about his affection for her on several occasions after they became close. However, Erica, on the other hand, only wanted him as a friend as she was attracted to him ‘mentally’ and not ‘physically.’
The situation between the pair later transgressed into an altercation, which led to the disqualification of Erica from the Big Brother Naija show.
