Kenyan comedian, Elsa Majimbo has sparked outrage on social media after claiming in jest she is worth KSh 400 million dowry.
Speaking during an interview with NTV’s Dr Kingori, Majimbo further said that she doesn’t expect a broke man to approach her, describing her type of man as ‘rich’.
“What I expect from that, someone who is broke or someone who doesn’t have money not to approach me, so I tell you what to expect,” Majimbo said.
“First of all my dowry is 4 million dollars (KSh 400 million),” she added.
It was, however, noted that the comedian who is more popular in South Africa than in Kenya, has in past occasions posted videos to the effect she has no time for broke men.
Her remarks didn’t go well with most social media users who slammed her for exaggerating her dowry price.
“Women think they are the only ones who should have standards. A man mentions his standards and he is called toxic and misogynistic. People are not property to be bought. Prizes are won, not bought. Don’t be afraid to reject and call out this type,” one Twitter user said.
