On her Instagram account, she also posted a black plain image to mourn Steve Harvey and shared it with her 5.1 million followers.

Her post was met with mixed reactions considering the American comedian is very much alive and his social media accounts are active with hours old videos of him giving his followers and global audience life advice, talking of how he attended the same church as the late Michael Jackson and of him celebrating his wife, Marjorie Harvey.

“Zima hiyo kitu bana. Niliwaambia kitambo huyu kienyeji hajielewi,” wrote Lynn Dawns.
