Actress Jacky Vike aka Awinja has opened up on how Kenyans have been mocking for having manly jaws.
The mother of one took to social media to reveal that she has been struggling with close up photos because of some of the bad things people have been whispering to her.
She said she believed her jaws made her look manly and unappealing thanks to the constant mockery by people around her.
“So wacheni niwapatie ka story, You would never have seen a close up picture of myself because I was always told ‘Ukona JAWS MBAYA! JAWS ZA WABABA, JAWS ZINAKAA MBAO IMECHONGWA , JAWS ZA KANYE WEST, JAWS ZA MTU HAJAKULA MIEZI KADHAA, JAWS UGLY!!! Etc etc… 😳I would only show a close up on video since I knew how to maneuver and hide them,” she said.
“I would always have long braids/wigs to hide, some makeup artist used to tell me “you have a beautiful jawline” I used to ignore because I thought ni chocha tu to make me feel good, but I later realized this is something I cannot change, and therefore I chose to Embrace them.”
The actress went on to say that people are always treated differently when they show their different body features. People should accept themselves in order not to be affected by such comments in life.
“Donning short hair or show them more, clearly people may make you hate some part of yourself so you grow up knowing, your forehead is ugly or Arms or legs etc, what I can say is, DO NOT ALLOW! Those comments to get to you because they will be affecting you as you carry them, so here I am accepting each and every “Flaw” Pole pole❤️ #wcw” she said.
