Kenyans are going international! From Khaligraph Jones who was nominated on BET Hip Hop Awards 2020 to Elsa Majimbo who has been nominated on E! People’s Choice Award 2020.
The People’s Choice Awards is an American awards show, recognizing people in entertainment, voted online by the general public and fans.
The writer and comedian informed the public of this huge achievement by posting a video made by E! Entertainment onto her Instagram page.
“I am so excited and shocked to announce that I have been nominated E! People’s Choice Awards in the category of African Social Star. While I don’t know how I got here so quickly, what I do know is I wouldn’t have gotten here without all of your support,”Majimbo captioned.
She further urged, “So please continue to show me your support by voting for me with up to 25 votes a day, link in my bio!!!!”
Other celebrities that have been nominated in the category with Majimbo include; Zozi Tunzi, Wain, Thuso Mbedu, Sho Madjozi, Lydia Forson, Karl Kugelmann and Dimma Umeh.
Just last month, the chip-eating comedian bagged a deal with none other than Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty. She took part in a campaign to advertise Fenty’s eyewear.
Despite facing rejection from Kenyans that later turned to support for her comical acts, Majimbo is now breaking barriers! You go girl!
