Video emerges of Kenyan speaking Kikuyu on American show, Love Island
"Wambui wa Njoroge uka haha."
In the seven seconds long video, Njoroge is seated at the gazebo interacting with fellow participants when a strange voice is heard from the background.
For a brief moment, everyone is startled as they try to comprehend what is going on. Njoroge's mood suddenly changes from bored to excited as soon as she hears and sees her mother.
"Wambui wa Njoroge..uka haha," said her mum to which Njoroge responded by letting out a squeal followed by the 24 year old running to hug her mother.
Elimination from the competition
On Thursday, August 12, Njoroge was eliminated from Love Island missing out on the coveted Sh.10,000,000 prize money.
The islanders had to vote among themselves to remove a couple they felt was least compatible from the villa.
Although the recent episodes saw cracks developing in Will Moncada and Kyra Lizama's relationship, and the clear lack of chemistry between Alana Paolucci and her partner Charlie Lynch, the islanders decided to give the boot to Njoroge and Andre Brunelli from the villa.
All the couples voted against Trina and Andre as they felt that they didn't have any chemistry between them.
Trina and Andre however felt that Charlie and Alana were the least compatible couple. Since the majority votes were against Trina and Andre, the couple had to leave the villa.
Fans were far from pleased with the islanders' decision. The audience recently voted for Trina and Andre as one of the couples with the strongest connection.
Many of them were even planning on voting for Trina and Andre to win the show. But with them being voted out ahead of the finale, fans aren't happy about it and took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction.
