The mother of one explained that she had been trolled her on social media when she was expectant, with some of them having crazy theories about who might be the father of her son.

“I got frustrated at first and then just decided to take things with a light touch. Up to eight men were mentioned as the father of my unborn child. Among them was a Member of the County Assembly (MCA) in my village, someone I never even knew on a personal level. There was also a watchman on that list,” she said.

She said that that experience had taught her a lot especially when it came to dealing with social media with the actress stating that it had led her to keep the boy of social media.

“People will make judgements. Some will tell him that he is ugly. I don’t want him to suffer just because he is my son, you know. And you never know, I might also get annoyed one day and insult someone over such a matter because I cannot tolerate such,” she said.

Awinja then took time to celebrate the man whose show had given her a big break. That man was the late Charles Bukeko aka Papa Shirandula, the prominent actor who recently passed on, for exposing her talent and mentoring her.
