Fast-rising social media comedian, Elsa Majimbo has said her home country, Kenya is no longer safe for her. The 19-year-old said this in an interview with YouTuber, Anas Bukhash. She explains on the show why she had no intentions to return to living in Kenya.
Majimbo said people in Kenya picked on her because of her skin colour. She explained that she felt safer living in South Africa. She said: “I have a bad relationship with Nairobi. People think it is just the internet but people have made it hard for me in Nairobi“.
“It did feel like everyone in the city is against me. So most of the time I would stay in the house and mind my own business. Then I went to South Africa where I was supposed to stay for four days, I went and never looked back,” Majimbo explained.
