Pierra Makena, a Kenyan DJ turned actress, is a proud mother now that her daughter Pokot was in her debut film.

The single mother expressed nostalgia while disclosing that her daughter is performing with well-known actress Jacky Vike.

"My moment of tears of joy. Riccas first movie deal and I am so proud of her. …. I can’t express how grateful I am to the casting team and the directors/producers for seeing the talent in my little girl…she is away from me on set for 4 days and I don’t even know how I feel…. Also knowing she is acting along side @jackyvike I’m a bit relaxed ☺️ #congratulations my baby @riccapokotofficial"

Mother-daughter advertisements have recently starred Pokot and her mother.

Makena recently shared details of her experience being a single mother.

In an interview, Makena disclosed that her baby daddy got married when she was five months pregnant and that she told him, "aliruka hio stori."

"I taught myself to be content when I realized I was pregnant and this guy was not going to be part of it. To be very clear, we had a very good relationship but after we broke up and I was pregnant he left. He did not even want anything to do with us and was very polite about it," she explained.

She says her baby daddy wasn't condescending or impolite. However, he married five months later while I was pregnant. That hurt so much. I never imagined that I would get over that, but I did.

She will never knock on his door to beg because she has moved past that awful moment.

 "I was happy for him because I thought he had found his happiness. God hopes he got his happiness. I really dont follow his life and I dont want to know what happens" she shared.

When she was with him, she refuted rumors on social media that her baby daddy was a married man.

"Nooo, he was never married. Trust me I'm not that kind of chick" she assured.
