The main reason why Kambua locked out her fans on social media
In a long social media post, the ‘Usiku na mchana’ hit maker disclosed that she had disabled her comment section in most of her pictures.
Regarding why she did so, Kambua said, “It's so easy to lose yourself even to the applause and admiration of people.”
While most ordinary Kenyans can deal with online trolls and negative comments that may even break relationships, celebs and high profile personalities’ trolls and fake news is amplified a thousand and million times. Most of the time they try to wear the confident and hard face but deep down they are broken.
A number of them often take breaks on social media after being fed with too much negativity. Some opt to quit out of social media completely.
For Kambua’s case, she disabled the comments section because “One moment you're crucified, and the next your praises are sang.”
Her post read:
“*Long post alert* So for the last couple of weeks I decided to disable my comments on most of my pictures. I know it frustrated some of you and I appreciate all who slid into my DM to find out what the deal was. Anyway, this is it. I have been feeling for a while that there are many voices in my life. Most, well-meaning, but still, many. It's so easy to lose yourself even to the applause and admiration of people. Social media is such a crazy place I must say! One moment you're crucified, and the next your praises are sang. Whoa. Such a confusing place to be! I'm learning how to be still. How to be OK without the applause... without the noise. I'm learning that sometimes the voice of The Shepherd can be drowned out by other voices; by the wind, and the storms. And that sometimes The Shepherd speaks, but we cannot possibly hear Him above the racket. So how about you try it. For me, it's the socials. For you, maybe it's noise from somewhere else that you just need to tune out for a while. He is always speaking...are you listening? Love always.”
