Kenyans rooting for Sho Madjozi ahead of their own Elsa Majimbo in E! People’s Choice Awards

The nominees for the African Social Star of 2020 category at the upcoming E! People’s Choice Awards, have been announced.

South African Rapper, actress and poet Sho Madjozi is a fan favourite going up against the likes of Kenya’s Elsa Majimbo and Miss Universe Zozibini in the same category.

Social media star and model, Karl Kugelmann; international Emmy Award-nominee and actress, Thuso Mbedu; magician and TikTok star, Wian van den Berg are the other South African nominees.

Also in the running is Nigerian YouTube sensation, Dimma Umeh; Kenyan comedian and internet star, Elsa Majimbo, and Ghana’s African Movie Academy Award-winning actress, Lydia Forson.

Sho Madjozi seems to be garnering votes in Kenya already as the star sings in Swahili and the Kenyans enjoy her music. The star has done collaborations with the likes of Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol and that Kenyans are loving more as opposed to Elsa’s crisp crunching antics. So it seems the Kenyan crowds will be split between voting for Elsa Majimbo and Sho Madjozi.

Elsa Majimbo’s comedy on the other hand is also very popular in South Africa. Some Kenyans have come out to say that they don’t find the 19-year old amusing at all. A pure case of being honored by strangers and rejected by your very own. Elsa did air these sentiments during her interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN in September. ‘I am funny everywhere else except Kenya’ she stated in response to Cooper’s compliment on her content resonating with audiences around the world.

“It’s funny that my comedy has garnered more fans outside my own country. The comedy scene here is quite different with most of the jokes in Swahili and its about tribes [stereotypes],” she remarked.

Elsa Majimbo“That’s not my comedy, mine is all about what’s happening in the world,” Elsa said.

Lets check out what the streets are saying so far on the nominees for the African Social Star of 2020;
