DK Kwenye Beat’s emotional response after Kenyans bashed him over his weight

Kijana wa Kayole has been devastated by the horrible comments leveled at him over his weight.

On social media, the prejudice gets worse and the comments are more brazen or downright cruel. Something DK Kwenye Beat knows all too well as he has been a recipient of relentless bullying over his weight.

Negative energy

During an interview with Radio Maisha on Friday, DK Kwenye Beat disclosed that he doesn’t have any issues with his weight and he has a strong cushioning for negative energy.


But it seems that one can only cushion themselves from negative energy for so long as no one is impermeable to cruelty.

“The tongue has no bone, but it is strong enough to break a heart. Social media is a hostile path to walk on, especially when you are not PERFECTLY created or have a body like mine. I won't quit social media as I had intended, I will instead share my story to inspire another.” DK Kwenye Beat wrote.

Kenyan reactions

Following his confession, fans had divided opinions with some saying that he should lose weight for health’s sake while others said that he should not bow down to public criticism.

Check out some of the reactions:
