But now, Tracy Wanjiru has come out to reveal that she went through bullying in high school because of her ghetto accent. Yes, the sassy lady once lived in the slums, exposing her to sheng.
The humble media personality confessed that she was bullied many times while at Loreto Kiambu High School because of her tomboy personality and for speaking Swahili and Sheng.
A few weeks ago Tracy had shared a post after Timaya’s performance in Kenya, sharing her joy and appreciation for how far she has come and the joy of hearing people calling out her name, despite the fact that some ladies once said she was too ghetto;
“Here I was hearing people scream my name! I remember back then when people made fun of me because I had a weird accent, some even saying I was too ‘ghetto’ and being bullied in high school. But here I was”
This time, she went on reveal that at some point she almost had acid poured on her face because of her tomboy nature and speaking sheng, with haters calling her a frog. Sad!
Here’s the confession:
If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a picture after the Timaya concert (which I MC’d) saying how I used to get bullied when I was younger because I was a tomboy. I spoke a lot of sheng’ and some people thought I didn’t behave how I looked which is actually an insult coming to think of it now. “In my first year of High School, I remember people threatening to pour acid on my face, saying I looked like a frog, others saying I am recruiting guys into some demonic stuff… There was a lot that was said.
