Wacha kutafuta clout and nonsense - Awinja
A social media user identified as Sosten Kipchumba, took a screengrab from one of Awinja’s videos, alleging that she had been dropped by brands over the comedy skit.
“Kenya breweries and Royco companies breaks with Awinja Nyamwalo - Jacky Vike as brand ambassador over this tabia mbaya,” Sosten Kipchumba alleged.
However, in a quick rejoinder Awinja joined the conversation terming Kipchumba as a propagandist who was out to spread fake news.
“Oh ndio unaji train kukua blogger wa fake news? (Oh, so you're training to become a fake news blogger?) I see, all the best in your career sir, oh na usisahau ku mention pia (don't forget to mention) Ariel, Downy, Equity Bank, Netflix e.t.c a step at a time and you shall get there,” replied Awinja.
She went on to ask the man to find something more constructive to do with his life, instead of poking his nose in other people's business for no good reason.
“Watch the whole video to get the message, wacha kutafuta clout na nonsense” added Awinja.
The video in question captures Awinja going around the city, trying to ensure that young people are dressed in a decent manner. And those who happen to be in skimpy dresses are dished with free ‘kamisis (petticoats)’ in order to cover up.
Going through the comment section, netizens also took issue with Kipchumba, many arguing that he was out to clout-chase using Awinja’s name.
