Elsa Majimbo, the new online sensation, has yet again broken the net by winning African Social Star of the year 2020 at America’s E! People’s Choice Awards alongside Karl Kugelmann, Sho Madjozi, Thuso Mbedu, Lydia Forson and Zozi Tunzi. The Kenyan has managed to get herself an International Award in just a spun of approximately eleven months. If that isn’t impressive then I don’t know what is.
Elsa, currently nicknamed ‘Mpho[M-po]’ (meaning gift) by her South African fans, films funny videos at the comfort of her bedroom that have gone viral in the course of the pandemic. In one of her videos she says, “To my future child…on your birthdays we will celebrate me for giving birth to you! Haha! You’re welcome,” she then finishes off the sentence with a maniac laugh and crunches on crisps to deliver a solid mic drop.
It’s her random blunt humor that has gotten her across Kenya’s, South Africa’s and America’s media outlets. She has managed to get herself a shout out from Lupita Nyongó on Twitter, plus birthday wishes from Miss Universe, South African Zozibini Tunzi, and Tanzanian model Flaviana Matata and others. The teen has so far gone from being an Instagram star gone viral, to closing a deal with Rihanna’s Fenty, to partnering with MAC Cosmetics to this – The African Social Star of the year 2020.
Elsa Majimbo has since thanked her fans for voting for her and very excitedly squeals on her camera.
Congratulations Elsa ‘Mpho’ Majimbo for winning E! People’s Choice Award and thank you for representing Kenya, Africa, and your international fans. We’re all proud of you. Clearly, E Entertainment did recognize game.
