Celebrated American comedian Steve Harvey has ‘endorsed’ Kenyan comedian Elsa Majimbo.
On Monday, Harvey shared on Twitter one of Majimbo’s funny videos (https://twitter.com/i/status/1323017426670292992) in which she is eating potato crisps while making a joke about the Covid-19 pandemic.
Harvey’s tweet of Majimbo’s video has so far attracted over 2,000 retweets and 8,400 likes within 24 hours. The video has been watched by more than 126,000 people.
Reacting to Harvey’s post, Majimbo wrote: “Lmao, right?”
Majimbo unleashed her comical skills on Instagram and Twitter in March following a nationwide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
She has since been featured by global media platforms like Guardian, New York Times, CNN, BBC, among others.
The 19-year-old has been nominated for the 2020 America’s E! People’s Choice Awards in the African Social Star Category.
She is going head-to-head with Sho Madjozi of South Africa, Karl Kugelmann (SA), Dimma Umeh (Nigeria), Lydia Forson (Ghana), Thuso Mbedu (SA), Zozi Tunzi (SA), among others.
The Gala for the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will be held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on November 15th.
Established in 1975, the People’s Choice Awards is American awards show that recognizes people in entertainment, voted online by the general public.
