Elsa Majimbo, a content producer and humorist, has continued to feud with her admirers and detractors a day after she boldly declared that money had changed her and that she was never humble to begin with.
The Los Angeles-based Kenyan skit maker and model, who experienced unfathomable success during the pandemic time, rising to stratospheric popularity and garnering praises from global superstars, recently went live on Instagram to address her enemies and individuals she said were castigating her for ‘changing’.
The comedian was responding to those who said that “money had changed her,” claiming that after becoming famous, her standards would never be the same.
“I’ve seen a lot of comments on how money has changed me so much, and my response is, of course, it has. Are you joking? I was never humble. I was a victim of my circumstances. Do you know the difference? What happened to the old Elsa? She got her money up! My net worth went through the roof. That’s what happened to the old Elsa. I’m rich now!” she bragged.
Shortly after making the comments, which many deemed aloof and tone-deaf, Majimbo received an avalanche of hate response from fans and detractors alike, with many taking a dig at her comedy skits, calling them unfunny and bland.
Other people even went further, singling out her obvious dark skin and noting that, even after the millions she had made in Hollywood, none of it could change her dark skin and African ancestry.
After hours of silence, it appears that the sassy It-girl and model had finally felt the brunt of the online negativity and was now coming out to point out, specifically, what hurt her.
While taking to X (formerly Twitter), Majimbo called out people dragging her skin into her ‘rich girl’ conversation, rebuking them for their crassness.
“Not some of y’all saying money can’t wash my dark skin (vomit emoji) I rebuke you. Yuck!” she posted.
After a fan commented, “At this point they are just bitter cause what the….?” Majimbo seemed to blame it all on skin color discrimination, saying, “colorism is alive and kicking…”
After yet another concerned fan, or hater in disguise, commented, “Don’t let anyone tell you are lightskin” she replied, “No I’m not. I’m darkskin and love it!”
Elsa, one of Forbes’s youngest-ever featured individuals, has accomplished a lot in her relatively short content creation career, which began with idle, Covid-era internet comedies.
Majimbo has now appeared in various advertisements and collaborated with numerous major brands and celebrities, even attending elite Hollywood parties and red-carpet events.
Majimbo has had the opportunity to connect and work with prominent international superstars such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Steve Harvey, and Kelly Rowland.
