Kenyan songstress Nadia Mukami is taking a break from social media due to cyber-bullying.

Through an Instagram post on Tuesday, the pop-singer rising star narrated her frustrations that led to the decision of taking a break from social media.

“Am writing this with tears in my eyes and they are already swollen coz of crying!” begins Nadia.

The singer explains the pressure the comes with being a celebrity, saying that most public figures are not expected to show emotions.

Nadia said she will not bow down to such pressure but rather reveal how she feels.

“There isn’t an insult I haven’t received!! All levels of explicit insults! This has been a month of one heartache after another, I swear I have broken down!” Nadia narrated.

She concludes by saying that despite the cyber-bullying, she will still be back.

“I am always the strongest among my friends; they say God doesn’t give you something you can’t handle; I wish he didn’t trust me this much everytime!! Am taking a break, I will be back!!!!”

The singer’s decision to quit social media comes weeks after Mulamwah, a Kenyan comedian, took to social media and burnt his signature shirt as a sign of quitting social media due to cyber-bullying.

“I am a comedian and I am used to banter but this was affecting my family. The screenshots would get to my parents and my siblings were affected too.

“I thought to myself that ditching comedy and living a quiet life away from the limelight would be beneficial to my family,” said Mulamwah.

The issue of celebrity cyber-bullying led to Kenyan rapper Kaligraph and Masauti releasing a song titled ‘Hao’ that speaks of the challenges public figures go through especially on social media.

The song highlights other Kenyan celebrities such as Gospel singers Bahati and Jimmy Gait who have also had their share of cyber-bullying on social media.
