Kenyan comedian Elsa Majimbo recently sparked controversy by shedding light on her tumultuous relationship with British supermodel Naomi Campbell.

In an eight-minute video shared on social media, Majimbo detailed how her once-close bond with Campbell deteriorated over time. The two initially met in December 2020 during Campbell’s visit to Kenya, where they began a mentor-mentee relationship. However, tensions arose when Campbell allegedly threatened legal action against Majimbo for filming a documentary without her consent.

Despite Campbell’s purported support initially, Majimbo claimed that their relationship soured after she released her own documentary, which Campbell felt infringed upon her ideas. This disagreement marked the beginning of their feud.
