Recounting what happened, the 22-year-old said she met Campbell in 2020 when the supermodel visited Kenya for a vacation.

They became friends, and the UK star introduced the comedienne to many influential people, which boosted her career.

Campbell also proposed to make a documentary about Majimbo’s life and challenges and offered to fund it.

However, things went sour when Majimbo worked on a different documentary without Campbell’s knowledge.

The supermodel felt betrayed and confronted her, accusing her of stealing her idea and threatening to sue her.

Majimbo tried to explain that the documentary was different from the one they had discussed, but Campbell did not listen and cut off contact with her.

The comic said she faced many difficulties in her career after that, which she attributed to her fallout with the model.

"Talking about the Naomi Campbell situation was very hard and scary for me. But I don't want to be owned by someone else and I want to acknowledge a lot of big hits and blows in my career came from another black woman and not my own incompetence," she wrote on X.

As a result, Majimbo said she started drinking and sunk into depression.

"From 19 years old too. She made me an alcoholic and full-blown depressed. It's now time to heal and be happy," she added.

Interestingly, hours after posting the video, the comedian deleted it, claiming she was doing so not out of fear but for her peace.

"I stand by my words. Content in my decision. The tweets are deleted due to seeking peace, not fear. Y'all need to understand this is something that has happened since I was 19. My goal now is happiness," she said.
