Popular Kenyan actress Naomi Kuria has revealed how she had to put on a hard skin in her quest to attain success in the acting industry.
Naomi Kuria who posts her short skits on Social Media says that she had her fair share of tribulations as some fans threw barbs at her for not being good enough in her craft.
“It broke me so bad, but I have learnt to appreciate such over time. It wasn’t easy at first, because I wasn’t ready for fame and I didn’t think people will hate on a young girl doing her thing without hurting anyone. However, I came to learn that lots of people are bitter and will hide behind the keyboard to share with you their bad day. Whether you take it, that’s a choice, “said Naomi.
On picking the rude and no – nonsense persona, she attributes it to her love in finding joy by poking into people’s feelings at times of predicaments.
Even when she was in the same situation during her school days, it was her way of having fun and creating laughter.
With barely two years since she started her journey, she’s grateful that the hardwork is finally paying off coupled with the lifetime connections she has created.
“I can now confidently say that I’m getting returns from the long nights and tough days of thinking and shooting new content.
YouTube is now making returns, a number of artists also pay me to be in their videos and short skits and endorsements are now trickling in in for which I thank God.
Most importantly, I’m grateful for the relationships and connections I’ve made in short time “She added.
Her biggest challenge remains her new found fame as she’s no longer easy carrying herself as she used to, people also measure her in terms of status and money.
She’s grateful to some seasoned comedian’s the likes of Dj Shiti, Auntie Jemimah and Henry Desagu for their endless support. She promises fans that they’re yet to enjoy the best from her.
