Kenyan comedian Elsa Majimbo has on several occasions made it clear that she cares less what her critics think about her and it seems she is living this truth if her latest post on Twitter is anything to go by.

Majimbo posted a photo of herself wearing a short romper that tightly fitted her curves. The outfit left little to the imagination causing wild reactions from Kenyans on Twitter.

The comedian recently relocated to the US where she currently resides. During a past interview with Forbes, Majimbo lamented on the ‘complicated’ relationship she has with Nairobi that has made her reach the decision.

“My relationship with Africa is amazing and I still go back every few weeks. I go back to like Ghana, South Africa, it’s because Africans know how to party and they make amazing food. No offence, but you can never find that in LA. So just that sense of community and belonging is very important to me and I am glad I have it,” she explained.

“I have a very complicated relationship with Nairobi, and there was a lot of… when things started going well for me there was a lot of backlash on me and just a lot of callous things were said to me and surprisingly it was people from Kenya. They were hell-bent on my failure and it was so insane… the rest of the world was cheering me on, Kenya was praying for my downfall. So when I got the chance I packed my bags and I left and I never looked back. And I’m never going back,” she said.

Majimbo rose to fame during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic when she used to post short videos of herself illustrating different scenarios. In 2021 she vented saying she was fed up with online bullying by Kenyans, adding that she’d rather settle in South Africa other than Nairobi for that reason.
