My dress my choice: Sanaipei Tande Addresses Online Haters
Kenyan singer and actress Sanaipei Tande has addressed her online haters, saying she has developed immunity to their negativity.
Tande was recently criticized for her choice of attire, specifically a mini-dress. The incident triggered a mixed response among her fans, with some expressing dissatisfaction with her outfit.
In a live interview with Oga Obinna, Tande said she used to let criticism get to her, but that is no longer the case.
“When I was 19, these things used to bother me. But now it’s like, you can read into what people are saying, and this person is hating you in a way that is just unintelligent,” Tande said.
She highlighted the futility of engaging with anonymous individuals, questioning the value of arguing with people whose background and motives are unknown.
“Why engage? Do you and appreciate the positive vibes and comments. If you focus on the negative side, you are going down, my dear. So, there are always those people who appreciate you and love you for who you are, and you should follow that,” Tande explained.
The artiste also spoke about her social media presence, revealing that she is predominantly active on Twitter, despite the prevalence of hate on that platform.
“I was trending on Twitter, but I am not on TikTok, and I am not so much into social media. I like Twitter, even though there is so much hate because the groups and institutions that I follow feed me with information that I need,” she said.
Tande’s message is a reminder that it is important to not let online haters get to you. It is also important to focus on the positive and to surround yourself with people who love and support you.
