Renowned content creator Elsa Majimbo has strongly refuted claims of harboring hatred towards her home country, Kenya. The influential personality, currently residing in the US, utilized her social media platform to clarify her position, while also articulating her admiration for South Africa.

Elsa Majimbo expressed her deep love for South Africa in a tweet that was published on her Twitter account. She also thanked the nation's offline and online communities for their unwavering support.

“Damn, I love South Africa. Like a ride-or-die kind of love. South Africans have shown up for me in ways that I have no words to describe. Just here to acknowledge and be grateful,” she wrote on X platform.

Elsa's fondness for South Africa has been unmistakable, manifested through various gestures, such as prominently featuring the South African flag in her social media bio – a clear symbol of her enduring love for the country.

The need for clarification arose amidst a recent controversy, where Elsa found herself entangled in a dispute with Kenyan netizens. Accusations emerged, suggesting that Elsa had made disparaging remarks about Kenya, leading to a social media uproar.

In response, Elsa publicly offered a $1000 reward to anyone who could provide evidence of her allegedly saying:

“I hate Kenya”.

She vehemently refuted the allegations, affirming that she had never made such statements and emphasizing her pride in her Kenyan identity.

In the midst of the online scrutiny, singer KRG the Don entered the conversation and extended an unusual offer to Elsa. He proposed a significant sum of $5 million for her to renounce her Kenyan citizenship—a gesture that garnered mixed reactions from the public.

In November, the 22-year-old comedian revealed that dealing with criticism related to her skin color motivated her to find solace in a country where her complexion is celebrated.

“There was a lot of colourism. There is just a lot of colourism in Kenya. I faced a lot of it when I grew up but even before that, there were a lot of comments on ‘oh, you are so dark’, like ‘oh look at that tint’, she is so ugly, why because she is dark.

There was so much of that, and when that started happening when I was growing up, I was like, I will never progress in this country with this kind of mentality,” she said.
