Awinja Jacky Vike

Kenyan actress Jacky Vike popularly known to many as Awinja has spoken out about her insecurities. Growing up, Awinja says that she has always hidden her jaw by wearing long hair.

She wrote;

So wacheni niwapatie ka story, You would never have seen a close up picture of myself because I was always told ‘Ukona JAWS MBAYA! JAWS ZA WABABA, JAWS ZINAKAA MBAO IMECHONGWA , JAWS ZA KANYE WEST, JAWS ZA MTU HAJAKULA MIEZI KADHAA, JAWS UGLY!!! Etc etc… I would only show a close up on video since I knew how to maneuver and hide them, I would always have long braids/wigs to hide, some make up artist used to tell me “you have a beautiful jawline” I used to ignore because I thought ni chocha tu to make me feel good

The Papa Shirandula actress added that that is in the past now and has been able to embrace what she calls flaws.

but I later realised this is something I cannot change, and therefore I chose to Embrace them, by donning short hair or show them more, clearly people may make you hate some part of yourself so you grow up knowing, your forehead is ugly or Arms or legs etc, what I can say is, DO NOT ALLOW! Those comments to get to you because they will be affecting you as you carry them, so here Iam accepting each and every “Flaw” Pole pole #wcw
