Instagram influencer and content creator Natalie Tewa has responded to claims that her lifestyle is funded by a politician.
While responding to an online fan on her YouTube channel, she clarified that people always like putting her in a bad light.
“Are you funded by a politician?” asked her fan, to which Tewa responded by saying;
“No and no, people huniwekelea vitu sana.”
Following the rumors that have been trending on the internet, she had to come clean on how exactly she is sustaining her lifestyle saying she quit her job so that she could pursue what she enjoyed doing the most, and was getting paid more than her previous 8-5.
Natalie revealed that she started her Youtube channel while still n school and that she managed to get subscribers which gave her motivation to take the channel seriously.
She currently has over 160k subscribers on her Youtube channel.
About a year ago, rumors were spread around that she was dating a flamboyant coast politician after her travel documents were leaked.
Online inlaws had assumed that she had gone on vacation with the politician, these rumors saw Natalie stay away from social media for close to a year.
Rumors also spread out that she was expectant following many of her posts on social media about baby items.
“There was a point where people said I was pregnant, think twice if you believed that story. I was just a victim of blogs. It comes from the fact that my friend has a baby shop and I posted it a few times,” she said.
Speaking on why she avoided social media, Natalie told a local publication that she took a break from social media over too much negativity.
“I was tired of social media, I am a private person and I like my things being underwaters. When people were too much in my life, I quit social media and ventured into other things,” she noted.
Natalie said that she was always putting herself out there thinking that they were all supporting her content but the negative vibe was a lot.
“It was not worth it. But because of my passion, I am back and the reception is higher. I think people are just keen to know what is going on in my world and so on,” she said, adding that her fans have told her to do more in her day-to-day life.
“I am still not ready to open up too much to them,” she concluded.
