According to Majimbo, people picked on her because of her skin colour.
"It did feel like everyone in the city is against me. So most of the time I would stay in the house and mind my own business. Then I went to South Africa where I was supposed to stay for four days, I went and never looked back."
Majimbo said that she found happiness elsewhere and added that she told her manager, she would rather hope from country to country than go back to Nairobi.
"My sister asked me where I would be going when l leave Dubai and said do not know, she told me to go back to Nairobi but after thinking about it, I said that was the worst option for me. I told my sister if I have nowhere else to go, I would rather go back to South Africa,'' she added.
She thanked South Africans for rallying behind her when Kenyans did not find her content amusing.
According to Majimbo, South Africans pushed her content to a global niche and she said she is glad she has a home in South Africa, where she feels safe. She added Kenya is not that place for her.
