Kenyan viral nanny Rosie’s Lebanese employer tells her to stay in Kenya

The Lebanese employer who gained attention in a viral video alongside Kenyan nanny Roseline alias ‘Rosie’ has changed her stance, now advising Rosie against returning to Lebanon.

Initially keen on having Rosie come back, the employer now supports Rosie staying in Kenya for improved opportunities.

Through a sincere statement on TikTok, the employer conveyed mixed emotions, expressing a desire for Rosie to return while also acknowledging the wish for her to remain with the children.

“Of course, I hope she will come back. But I don’t think so. I don’t want her to come back. I want her to enjoy her time with her kids and maybe stay with them,” the employer stated.

She went on to express a preference for Rosie to extend her stay in Kenya, emphasising:

“If I was her, I would stay in Kenya with my kids. I would never come back to Lebanon.” The employer speculated that the viral video could open doors to better opportunities for Rosie outside Lebanon.

“I am pretty sure after this viral video, she will be able to get better opportunities than to come back to Lebanon,” the employer asserted. She also expressed pride and highlighted the positive impact she believes she played in Rosie’s newfound recognition.

“I feel really proud and touched that I was able to help Rosy reach what she did reach, to go viral and be appreciated and to be with her kids. So guys, please don’t understand me wrong. I wish Rosy all the best,” she added.

Additionally, the employer touched upon Rosie’s video’s impact on her content creation, revealing that she gained a massive following on TikTok within 24 hours after the video went viral.

“I made 1 million followers on TikTok in 24 hours after Rosi’s video. That was like everyone was chocking of me. Lemme know if there is anyone who has ever made that huge number in 24 hours on TikTok.”

In an online media interview, Rosie expressed her intention to continue working with the family until the children are a bit older.
