Sheila Mwanyigah’s looks have not faded over time. She is in fact the perfect description of “black don’t crack.
But the stunning smile does not keep the trolls away.
In an exclusive interview with BBC, the former TV Host and singer said that she has at some point received death threats that kept her on edge.
Mwanyigha recounted condoling with victims of an attack in Egypt when a troll wished her death.
“There was a time there was an attack in Egypt and I sent my condolences and one person attacked me saying that I should have been among those who died. Adding that people like me did not deserve to live.
It does get terrifying when some random individual tells you to your face, you should be dead.I felt so vulnerable,” she said.
So bad was the situation that she constantly stayed around friends just in case the hater made good their threats.
She further noted that it was the trolls that cost her a successful singing career.
She also regrets that people often associate her with high profile men.
“You go for meetings and people are looking at you thinking you have what you have because you are having a relationship with this person,” she stated.
It has been said that Ms Mwanyigah was once romantically involved with former Nation Media Group CEO Linus Gitahi.
Gitahi was allegedly seen sneaking in and out of the beauty’s Parklands home at odd hours of the day.
