Kenyan Instagram comedian Elsa Majimbo had an intimate interview with supermodel Naomi Campbell on her show, No Filter. She talked about how her family dealt with her instant fame as a viral comedian.
How did they know you were posting since they are not on social media?
“THEIR FRIENDS TOLD THEM, SO, MY MUM AND DAD TOLD ME, ‘HEY, FIRST OF ALL THESE VIDEOS ARE AFFECTING YOUR EDUCATION AND WE MIGHT NOT LIKE THE CONTENT YOU POST.’,” MAJIMBO SAID.
“I SAT DOWN AND LISTENED AND AFTER THAT CONVERSATION, I WENT TO MY ROOM AND BLOCKED ALL THEIR FRIENDS, BECAUSE I KNEW THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAD ACCESS. AND I CONTINUED DURING MY THING. I WAS LIKE IF MY DAD DOESN’T KNOW, IT WON’T HURT HIM. I WILL BE HAPPY AND HE WILL BE HAPPY. IT IS A WIN-WIN.”
Naomi asked her, which of her videos is she most proud of?
MAJIMBO SAID, “IT IS A PANDEMIC! EVERY TIME SOMEONE WANTED TO SEE THEY WOULD BE LIKE, ARE YOU HOME? I WOULD BE LIKE, YEAH, BUT IT IS A PANDEMIC!!!!? AND THAT IS HOW I CAME UP WITH THAT VIDEO.”
