– Kenyan star, Elsa Majimbo, said she feels safer living in South Africa than staying in her own country
– According to the 19-year-old comedienne, she has had a bad relationship with Kenya and so the moment she left the country, she has never looked back
– She also thanked South Africans for supporting her when Kenyans did not find her content amusing
Comedienne Elsa Majimbo has shared that her relationship with Nairobi has been one of the hardest experiences she has had in life.
The 19-year-old appeared in an interview with AB Talks YouTube interview with Anas Bukhash and she gave reasons why she is not planning on living in Kenya.
“I have a bad relationship with Nairobi. People think it is just the internet but people have made it hard for me in Nairobi,” she said.
According to Majimbo, people picked on her because of her skin colour.
“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 said that she found happiness elsewhere and added that she told her manager, she would rather hope from country to country than go back to Nairobi.
“My sister asked me where I would be going when l leave Dubai and said do not know, she told me to go back to Nairobi but after thinking about it, I said that was the worst option for me. I told my sister if I have nowhere else to go, I would rather go back to South Africa,” she added.

She thanked South Africans for rallying behind her when Kenyans did not find her content amusing.
According to Majimbo, South Africans pushed her content to a global niche and she said she is glad she has a home in South Africa, where she feels safe. She added Kenya is not that place for her.
The 19-year-old online sensation continues to receive great support and recognition from some of the biggest names in the world.
In January, Beyoncé sent a gift pack from the Icy Park collection to Majimbo.
The delighted star went on social media sharing snaps of the lovely gift and even did a small video to show the contents inside. They included outfits, bras and even a small gift box that we just hope has some of the coolest Adidas shoes we are yet to see.
