Her quirky short videos have caught the attention of international stars such as Lupita Nyong’o, Steve Harvey, Snoop Dogg among others.
With a growing fan base, the young comedienne recently bagged an ambassadorial role with pop singer, Rihanna’s Fenty where she is to showcase the brand’s glasses in every shade.
“Weekend antics with Kenyan comic Elsa Majimbo wearing every shade of FENTY. Happy Sunday everyone!” read a tweet on Fenty’s official page.
Majimbo, many would attest, kept the world entertained especially when the Coronavirus pandemic first hit.
Wearing dark sunglasses and crunching on snacks, Majimbo definitely made life bearable during the quarantine period.
Here are some congratulatory messages:
