Also, OP; you look Nigerian to me. But you could pass as a "New World" Black, with ease. Dominican, Haitian, Brazilian, African American, Cuban.

Yeah, people from Latin America are called "latino", Spanish people live in Spain and are mediterranean white like Italians. And Caucasian people live in the Caucasus, like Armenians or Georgians.

I am a African. It is sometimes difficult to pinpoint someone looks. I would say South African or Northwest African.

Lol the amount of ignorance here is astounding.

If you are dark skinned, as you are in the photos, then you will find a generic 'African look' that relates to somewhere in the African continent.

As for Kenya in particular, I would say yes. Your features fit in within the wider region including Uganda. These features are petite facial features, and medium to voluptuous body shape.

Someone mentioned the tribes within the region and the differing looks between them. This is very true. Tribal differences can be very distinct, ranging from physical size, to general skin colour.

Remove the makeup and no one in the region would guess that you are other than native. In any event, unless widely physically different and unless you speak, you would find that the default assumption from native Kenyans to black people, is that you were a Kenyan.
