Sheila Kwamboka, the well-known breakfast presenter on Kiss 100 FM, has found herself in the midst of a social media storm after a video of her dancing in the studio stirred controversy.
The video, initially shared on the radio station’s social media, was eventually removed following an outcry from some users who deemed her remarks insensitive, particularly in light of a recent murder in Roysambu, Nairobi.
In the now-deleted video, Sheila Kwamboka could be seen energetically dancing to a Nigerian song during her morning show on Kiss 100 FM. The controversy arose when she made a seemingly innocent remark, stating, “Even if you guys are not feeling Nigerians this week, I don’t care.”
However, given the recent tragic murder of 20-year-old Rita Waeni Mwendo, allegedly by a suspected Nigerian national now in police custody, the comment took on a darker tone, provoking widespread criticism.
Social media users swiftly responded to Kwamboka’s remarks, accusing her of insensitivity to the death of Rita Waeni Mwendo.
The video quickly went viral, triggering heated discussions on various social media platforms, where the presenter is currently trending for all the wrong reasons.
Disappointed users expressed their concern over what they perceived as an inappropriate comment, especially considering the gravity of recent events in Roysambu.
In response to the mounting backlash, Kiss 100 FM took down the controversial video from its social media channels. However, as of now, the station has not issued an official statement on the matter.
