In the most recent development, Majimbo has bagged an ambassadorial role with Rihanna’s Fenty where she showcases the brand’s glasses in every shade.

A trip through her Instagram details funny videos of wanting to get rich without necessarily going to work. Ultimately, she pokes fun into not wanting to spend time with people, but wanting a boyfriend or not wanting to Zoom every day, but wanting to still be connected.

In the interview with New York Times, Majimbo narrated being born and raised in Nairobi Kenya and being a journalism student. She further recounted her father’s reaction to her new found internet fame adding that he is yet to come to terms with it.

“My dad said, ‘This is not how a Christian girl in a Christian home behaves,’ and I tried to explain that it’s meant to be funny. He said, ‘I don’t see anything funny here, stop making videos of this nature immediately.” she told the publication.

To keep up with her new life and ideally keep her father off her pages, she had to block everyone who bore close relations with the father.

The new fame has, however, come with blessings as the 19-year-old has worked with some of the best, renowned brands thus narrated that she has been able to find herself in a way that she never had before.
