Elsa Majimbo: Has money changed me? Yes, of course!

In a recent Instagram reel, popular 21-year-old comedienne Elsa Majimbo addressed comments from the public about how "money has changed her."

She said she had been a victim of circumstances for a long time and she is glad she levelled up.

 "I’ve seen a lot of comments on how money has changed me so much, and my response is, of course, it has. Are you joking? I was never humble. I was a victim of my circumstances. Do you know the difference? What happened to the old Elsa? She got her money up! My net worth went through the roof. That’s what happened to the old Elsa. I’m rich now."

Elsa, who is amongst the youngest people to be featured on Forbes, has achieved a lot by the age of 21 in her three-year content creation career that began with internet skits.

She reflected on her first viral video saying she had a feeling she would be a star.

 "I always knew I was destined for something great and amazing. I always knew I was a star. When my first video went viral, I wasn’t looking to get into entertainment or media. I just knew I never wanted to go back to school. This was a loophole, so I went with it."

Since the start of her skits, which have been featured on international platforms such as Comedy Central and the popular talk show "Steve on Watch" by Steve Harvey, she has partnered with brands such as Rihanna's Fenty, Beats By Dre, Bumble, Coke, and many others.

She recently shared that at the age of 20, she asked her business manager to withdraw 500 thousand dollars, which translates to 69 million Kenyan shillings, from her bank accounts to give away to charity.

"As a 20-year-old, I couldn't justify earning that much money to support my lifestyle. Do not get me wrong; I do not deprive myself of luxuries. I fly first class, and I buy designer bags, but I want to bless others. Other people are deserving as much as me."

Elsa's skits have always been based around having bold audacity and a firm belief in herself.
