Kenyan lady who has gained immense popularity on various social media platforms, Roseline Atieno, commonly known as ‘Rozzie,’ has denied having any relationship with comedian Vanessa Akinyi, popularly known as Cartoon Comedian.
Since gaining fame a few days ago after the emotional video of her bidding farewell to her employer’s family in Lebanon went viral, many netizens have noticed a striking resemblance between the mother of two from Siaya County and Cartoon Comedian.
In an interview with Bennie Experience, Rozzie clarified that she has no familial connection with the comedian and even emphasized that she does not know her.
“No, I don’t know her. We are not related,” she said.
Many Kenyans have been drawing comparisons between Rozzie and Cartoon Comedian, with some even suggesting that they could be sisters.
Despite working in Lebanon for the past two years, Rozzie hails from Siaya, while Cartoon Comedian was born and raised in Nairobi.
In recent days, a video depicting emotional moments as Rozzie bid farewell to the family she worked for, along with their four children, has been circulating on social media, evoking a strong emotional response from viewers.
During the interview, the mother of two explained the main reason why her employer’s children were emotional when she was leaving Lebanon.
“I think it’s just the motherly love that I have been giving them because I also have children. I treated them as my own,” Rozzie said.
At the same time, the Siaya County native dismissed claims that the children she cared for were close to her because their employer had abandoned them.
“That’s not true; he was always there for his children,” she said.
Rozzie mentioned that she became aware of the viral video through a friend living in Lebanon, and she was pleased that the Lebanese family was happy for her.
“I was happy… the Lebanese family was happy for me,” she said.
Speaking about her work in Lebanon, she revealed that she left Kenya for the Middle East in 2021 to earn money to support her two children.
She disclosed that she has returned to Kenya for a vacation and plans to go back to Lebanon.
“I will return… if I am offered a job in Kenya, I will work,” she said.
