You probably recognize her from her signature laugh accompanied with some old school glasses and crunchy potato crisps while chattering ironical jokes on her bed. 19 year old Elsa Majimbo is one of the youngest successful Kenyan comedians, being recognized globally. International celebrities including Rihanna and Snoop Dogg noticed her comedy.
Elsa has landed several deals including being an ambassador for MAC cosmetics. She has also bagged an ambassadorial role with Rihanna’s Fenty where she showcases the brand’s glasses in every shade.
Additionally, days ago she posted herself wearing Valentino on the cover of Teen Vogue, an American online publication, which includes stories about fashion and celebrities. Days later, she lands a new deal with Valentino, an Italian luxury fashion house founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani. On her page she wrote;
” I am SO proud and excited to announce my entry into high fashion with an upcoming collaboration with @maisonvalentino!!!!!
my team has worked so hard on this and I can’t wait to share more details!”
Valentino also announced on their page to confirm about Elsa’s collaboration with them,
”It’s Elsa’s world, we’re just living in it. Valentino is proud to announce a special project with writer, actor and comedian Elsa Majimbo (@ElsaAngel19), culminating into a soon-to-be-released collaboration. Stay tuned to find out more. ElsaxValentino.”
Elsa is a student of journalism from Strathmore University Nairobi. She has been posting monologues from 2016 but had stopped until 2019. Her monologue videos went viral during the COVID-19 lockdown.
I hope she doesn’t stop giving us the good comedy after this. Keep winning Elsa!
