Watch: Why vlogger Natalie Tewa bought herself an engagement ring
Apart from being a content creator sharing her many adventures traveling around the country and beyond vlogger Natalie Tewa has also had her share of negative publicity.
In March 2019 she was the top trending topic with more than 5,000 tweets reason being a nasty breakup with her Ugandan ex-boyfriend Rnaze.
Natalie claimed she had cheated on him and also revealed that her ex had physically abused her. Months later Tewa was rumored to be dating a famous Coastal politician after her travel documents went viral.
Netizens assumed Tewa was on vacation with the said politician, something that saw the YouTuber stay away from social media for a year.
She was also rumored to be pregnant following many of her posts in the recent past about baby items. But despite all this, she has never stopped living her life through her vlogs.
“At this point whatever I say does not matter because everyone had their own opinion and speculated a lot. And that is just the way I am, I do not clarify or deny because people will always have assumptions,” Natalie Tewa said during an interview with Nairobi News.
“I have learned my lesson of not putting everything online, and I had to learn the hard way. I feel that people are curious but as soon as you post people become more curious and want to inquire, so if it’s relationships family I post very sparingly. No more about sharing everything I am very careful about what I post about my private life, just to avoid that harsh criticism,” she said.
That is why even though she is currently in a relationship her fans do not know about it. And despite her wearing an engagement ring she is still not yet engaged.
“My love language is quality time, getting to know them and them knowing you and just being there for each other. They also have to be very thoughtful and kind I do not like arrogant boisterous people,” she explained.
“Sometimes men are a bit much, like when you go out with your girls and you do not want to be disturbed and men can be very intrusive and come to your space asking whether they can buy you a drink and I refuse, because of course when they buy you anything they expect something in return and it is just that process that I try to avoid. So I got myself an engagement ring.”
Having started her career in 2015 her content has evolved from travel, food and even fashion. But that is not all that she does.
“Other than content creation I am a farmer a passion that I picked up from my mother and my entire family. My mum does herbs for export and also does avocado farming. So I started going with her to the farm, understanding the process looking at the numbers, so I saved up and put up my avocado trees and so far so good,” she said.
