Viral comedienne Elsa Majimbo recently touched down in South Africa and she’s already made some new friends.

Yesterday, Elsa shared some snaps on board a plane with the South African flag as the caption. It appears the rising star has already settled in as local television host Olwethu Leshabane shared a video of herself with Elsa where she impersonated the social media star. The two are already exploring some parts of Johannesburg, while being cautious of course, and creating lots of exciting content.

At this stage, we do not know what her trip to South Africa entails, however, we will soon find out. We’re assuming it is brand-related work as there are strict restrictions on international travels. South Africa is one of the places where Elsa Majimbo’s videos started gaining traction. She considers it her second home. Her fans in South Africa are excited to have her on their shores – they’ve been sharing their excitement through social media.

She gained popularity in 2020 at the peak of the Covid19 pandemic. Her satirical monologues usually feature her crunching potato crisps, leaning back to a pillow and using a pair of small 1990 sunglasses. Since then, her brand has grown in leaps and bounds. In 2020 she was awarded ‘Entertainer Of The Year; by GQ South African at the Men of the Year Awards. Who knows? Maybe she’s there to collect the accolade.

In the same year, she won the E! People’s Choice Award for Favourite African Star and a Streamy Creator Honor Award. More recently, the 19-year-old made it to Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood Class of 2021. Some of the brands that she’s worked with include Rihanna’s Fenty, MTN South Africa, Mac Africa, Valentino but to name a few.

Elsa is a testament to the endless opportunities that lie on the internet. Last year she was just completing her degree in Journalism at the Strathmore University in Nairobi, and now she’s one of the biggest rising comediennes.
