Congratulations to me as I won the Favourite African Social Media Star category at the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021. I am so happy to be a winner, thank you!
To all my fans out there, I say thank you. To all those who voted for me, I love you so much, this win would not have been possible without you.
