Marakwet Daughter causes a stir with viral TikTok video trashing followers
Renowned Kenyan artist Millicent Jepkorir, popularly known as Marakwet Daughter and celebrated for her hit song ‘Mali Safi Chito,’ has recently ignited a social media storm with a TikTok video addressing alleged trolls among her followers.
In the now-viral video, the one-hit wonder warned those spreading negativity, threatening to block anyone engaging in what she perceived as harmful behavior.
She proudly declared her peace of mind after blocking several individuals and advised them to express their opinions elsewhere.
“You are used to using bad language on my comment section. Mumezoea sanaa kupupuu inbox yangu pale TikTok, pupuu sasa hapa. Nkt!” she lashed out at her followers.
The controversial video prompted various reactions from social media users, with some expressing their discontent and others advising her on a more diplomatic approach.
- Carren Chepkoech: “Like us Kenyans, we are about to avoid you by unfollowing and unsubscribing to all your channels.”
- Ndung’u Nyoro: I pray MALI SAFI artists get mentors and, if possible, managers. She is good but needs guidance.
- Honourable Kiprono: “My life is just focused on what you’re doing. Leave me alone; my plans and yours are not the same.”
- Lelestap Keiyo: “Mbona uko na hazira hivi? Please just apologize to your fans; then, those enemies will not use those words to pull you down.”
- Naftali Koech: “You are losing fans day by day.”
- Tjõ Jõhñy: “Avoid social media, avoid abusive words… you will slowly lose it. Never compete with social media.”
- Robert Korir Marly: “You don’t mind apologizing for what you posted on TikTok, claiming ‘tupupuu kwa inbox yako,’ Marakwet Daughter! It has not sat well with your followers; I don’t know if you’re even aware of the remaining followers and subscribers! Anyway, I will not be personal because at the end of the day, maisha ni yako; you can make it or bottle it.”
She recently received significant royalties distributed by the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) on Thursday, January 25, where MCSK allocated KSh20 million in royalties to numerous Kenyan artists.
Marakwet Daughter, famed for her hit song ‘Mali Safi Chito,’ was pleasantly astonished to receive over KSh100,000, surpassing her initial expectations.
